Subversion literally means to “turn from beneath”or to undermine authority. Subversion is a transfer of power that doesn’t come by might, but by anotherkindof power.
In this weeks broadcast I explain how the Gospel of the Kingdom is a subversive exchange of power. We’ll look at how Jesus subverts his own family in order to rise up and embody the larger and more inclusive family of God.
We’ll also examine how the institution of family imprisons us if we leave the family at the wrong time or in the wrong way or fail to leave at all. The institution of the family has been idolized and as a result we behave in horrible ways or suffer with tremendous guilt all in the name of family.
Join me now as we explore how the Gospel subverts the institution of the family as we learn to see beyond everything.

So often the Easter story is reduced to an appeal of historical data. This limits the Easter story to a clean up job for our naughtiness. In this weeks broadcast, I will offer a much bigger Easter story and prove that subversion, everywhere we see it, is the ongoing effect of dying in order to find new life. This means Easter is everywhere, all the time.
Join me now as we learn to see the resurrection beyond everything.
That probably seems like an odd question, but anesthesia is a powerful metaphor that will stick in your mind. In today’s broadcast, we continue our series on John the Baptist and transition to the proving grounds just prior to Jesus’ ministry.
Join me now as we see beyond the temptations of Jesus and learn why I call them the three forms of anesthesia.
“Does your understanding of the gospel take into account how subversive it is to institutional power?”
Today we continue to go deeper into the life and message of John the Baptist. We saw last week he was the forerunner of a wide-open message of forgiveness. This week we will see how the two largest institutions of power, Religion and State, react to such a message of liberation.
Let’s jump in behind the trail that John is blazing so that we can see beyond everything.
“Who was John the Baptist? And what was he really talking about?” Anyone with even a small amount of bible knowledge is familiar with the character of John the Baptist. He was distinct in a world that had long hoped to hear his message. But what was that message? And to what exactly was he the forerunner?
In today’s broadcast we start a series where we look closer at John’s life and message. He doesn’t go to church, he eats bugs, and he was the forerunner of forgiveness.
