Episode 166: Where It All Began.

This week, Al, Greg and Scott talk about how their faith journeys began and how it came to such a big part in their lives. As always, it's a mix of love for each other and a complete rejection of the idea that we need to take each other too seriously.

Episode 161: Personality Tests, The Enneagram and the Long Road to Self-Awareness.

This week, Al, Greg and Scott talk about the long road to self-awareness and the important role that personality indicators (and the Enneagram in particular) can play in helping us figure ourselves out. How do we approach these ideas in a way that doesn't put people in boxes? How do we apply what we're learning in a way that is liberating for ourselves and for others? And how do we avoid the temptation to judge others instead of challenging ourselves?
