Have you ever found yourself in a conversation with someone outside of your religious context, stumbling upon your words as you realize that although your beliefs and vocabulary have changed, the old scripts of your faith upbringing are still there, in your mind, fighting to come out?
In this episode Cindy and Renae have a candid conversation about their upbringing in church, their shifting beliefs, and how living out this faith intentionally requires some serious reprogramming.
People, not projects.
Relationships, not agendas.
Love, not fear.
Trust, not control.
These are all easy things to say and easy things to ‘Pin’, but they can leave some of us ‘born and raised’ types fighting against internal scripts and crippling pressures.
