Thanks for listening to Episode 3 of The People People Podcast!
You're one of us, aren't you? You're a people person. But you get that being a “people person” isn’t just about being chatty and smiley and super-duper nice, it’s about transforming the world through relationships. You're one of those people who understands that HUMAN CONNECTION is the key to everything. You're one of those people who understands that humans are social animals, and we're all deeply longing for real, meaningful, deep-spirited connection in all aspects of our life. You're one of those people who understands that the secret to creating the world you want is found in your ability to connect. You're one of us. We are people people. And you found our show.
Why are we so afraid to talk with each other about faith, religion, spirituality, or the things we find sacred… outside of the walls of a traditional religious building? Should we save conversations about the biggest questions of life and death for only formal weekend morning lectures and funerals? That seems absurd.
This episode features Pastor Justin Spurlock, the senior pastor at Grace Presbyterian Church in Colorado. Justin and I dive deeply into the questions above.
Justin and I have a history of meaningful connection. He’s one of those people who isn’t afraid to dive into big conversations in big ways. Maybe that’s partly because of his vocation, but he’s also a person who has obviously made a choice to put Social Excellence in the middle of his lifestyle.
I hope this episode inspires people to dive into some big conversations about big topics this week. Talk about the big questions of life. Dive in. Learn from each other and find inspiration in the viewpoints of others. Perhaps you’ll find divinity in that connection. Maybe God, whatever that means for you, lives in the space between us.
