In this episode, Pearse and the Rev. Brian Smith continue their conversation about doubt. They discuss the place of prayer in times of doubt--even when people may doubt the very God to whom they pray. And doubt doesn't have to be all doom and gloom.

Pearse and Derrick discuss leadership from two angles - how the Lord leads the individual, and how an individual can model his actions after the Lord in order to lead effectively. They liken good leadership to creating circumstances that inspire people to rise to the occasion, committing the best in themselves to the task at hand.

In this episode, Pearse interviews Curtis Childs about his theory of head bullies--the hellish influences that infiltrate your mind and want to make you miserable. Curtis wants everyone to take negative thoughts lightly, to know that you are cooler than you think you are, and to realize that life is better than you think it is. For more from Curtis, check out the video on Head Bullies on YouTube and think about subscribing to his channel: Head Bullies.

In this episode, the Rev. Dr. Andy Dibb describes his religious upbringing and concept of God. Influenced both by his New Church mother and Anglican schools, he came away with conflicting ideas. Was God a trinity or unity of Persons? Andy later found resolution and peace in the idea of a single, loving, Human God. Andy discusses the impact a person's view of God has on the rest of his or her life. With that in mind, how does one discuss religion with an atheist or agnostic?
