WHI-1173 | Ordinary Life and Vocation

Should our lives look more like the book of Joshua, or the book of Ruth? How should we live out our faith in a secular culture? On this edition of White Horse Inn, we’ll talk with hip-hop artist Jason Petty about the pursuit of excellence in ordinary life.

WHI-1172 | The God of the Ordinary

There seems to be a false choice today in many quarters between a secular naturalism and hyper-supernaturalism. Conceived this way, either nothing is miraculous, or everything is. But in either case, God’s ordinary providence gets sidelined and ignored. That’s what’s on tap for this program as we begin to wrap up our month-long series, Ordinary.

WHI-1171 | Extraordinary Gifts Through Ordinary Means

It is wonderful when thoughtful believers take initiative to learn what they believe and why they believe it. But this shouldn’t be something that can only be obtained through a spectacular conference experience or through the ideas of best selling book. Every church should be a garden, and every minister is called to water and tend each plant under his care, so that we’re all nourished by Christ, the life-giving vine.

WHI-1170 | Ordinary Excellence

Some may argue that the call to recover “ordinary discipleship” is simply a call to mediocrity and low expectations. But as we’ll discuss in this program, ordinary discipleship is actually a higher quality form of discipleship that’s sustainable over the long haul, one that doesn’t give up easily when immediate results are unseen. On this program, we’re in part two of our month-long series, Ordinary.

WHI-1169 | Courage in the Ordinary

Have you noticed that words like “extreme” and “revolutionary” have ironically become part of our “ordinary” vocabulary, even in the world of contemporary Christianity? We’re constantly encouraged to “transform the world,” to pursue “radical discipleship,” or to do “big things for Jesus.” What is the cost of this continual use of superlatives? With the help of Tish Harrison Warren, we’ll discuss this issue and point to a recovery of “ordinary discipleship” in a world of hype.
