The Next 50 Years, Pt. 1 with Pastor Leonce Crump

This year marks the 50 year anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Since then, we've made great strides in our country with racial reconciliation, but we've still got a long way to go. To discuss where we need to go to continue the reconciliation process in the next 50 years, both as the church and as a country, Adrian drove to Atlanta to meet with Pastor Leonce Crump of Renovation Church. Both Adrian and Leonce have a heart to see real racial reconciliation happen, but it won't be easy. Listen as they discuss racism, progress that still needs to be made, things that are hindering us to move forward, and more on this week's episode of the New Rules Podcast.

"You can't find any black creatives? Have you been the America? The stoplight that you sit under: made it. The super soaker: we made that. Washington DC: we made that. You can't find black creatives? You're not looking." @leoncecrump #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

[on the church and racial reconciliation] "The gospel has been allowed to be turned into a message of personal salvation without any societal implications. The gospel is now about me getting off the planet versus seeing God renew all things." - @leoncecrump #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

Innovate or Die: Church Edition

The church catches a lot of criticism for not innovating over the years, some of which is justifiable. According to statistics, culture reinvents itself every 3-5 years, where the church usually takes 35-40 years. There are big moments in history like reading the Bible in English, women's roles, and allowing the new instruments in Worship music, but what about smaller moments in our every day lives like justice, helping those in need, education, and more? Join us as we discuss this, why some of us enjoy spicy food and others don't, and more on this episode of the New Rules Podcast.

"The reason the church won't innovate in bringing real reconciliation is because the church is scared of what others will think. Pastors have become more concerned with tithers and Sunday attendance than bringing about real change." - @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

 

"The church doesn't want to empower their people to do what they are need to do, because if they do, it's the fear that they won't give back to what you're trying to build." - @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

Question the Game

Have you ever questioned the game that you're playing? Not a sport, but the game of Life. Do you have the skill sets for the job you're working? Are you doing something you're interested in? Many of us drift through life, not satisfied with what we're doing, but few of us stop to ask questions that we all should in order to get where we want to go. This, our thoughts on Easter services, and more on this week's episode of the New Rules Podcast.

"In the game of life, what do you determine as winning? If you let society decide the game you should play, you'll just play according to their rules. What does it mean for you to win?" - @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

NRW: Episode 041 : Seed Investment

Do you feel that you're inadequate to do the things you've been working towards? Whether it's your job, your marriage, parenting, school, or something else, the pressures of life can overwhelm us to the point where we want to throw up our hands and quit. But we must be reminded that God has given us everything we need to fulfill our purpose. Learn more on this episode of the New Rules Weekly.

Why Jesus was the Greatest New Rules Maker of all Time

As we're approaching Easter, we take a look at why Jesus has been the most influential person in the history of the world. He came to change the way life was lived, to give a new meaning and purpose to his followers, and to provide hope and freedom to all who call on His name. To discuss, we bring on Pastor Seth Trimmer of Grace City Church in Corvallis, Oregon. This, Adrian and Billy's thoughts on the most overrated holiday food, and more on this week's episode of the New Rules Podcast. 

"Jesus came to rearrange the way we think about God and the way we're to relate to God." - @sethtrimmer #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

"Wherever Christianity has gone, the status of women has been elevated." - @sethtrimmer #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

"Humans are made to have hope. We can't survive without hope. So if you don't see any significance in your work, you'll go through life miserable, and be a bad example of a follower of Jesus." - @adriancrawford #newrulespodcast TWEET THIS!

So how do we do this? To discuss, we’ve brought on Ben Kaempfer, entrepreneur and bi-vocational pastor of Downtown Community Church, to discuss how he has learned to do this in his world.
