Greetings, Easter People people! Here’s our new episode with a conversation about non-religious pop culture that hit us in a religious way, a game which turns that formula around, and (as always) Green Shoots. We’d like to welcome guest panelist Becky Zartman, with whom we had a blast and who joined us on short notice. Thanks, Becky!
Not mentioned in the show but a mega-Green Shoot in our world this week is an interview by the Fuller Youth Institute with danah boyd, author of It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens. Hugely practical, really honest and hopeful—exactly the kind of thing we’d have told you about had it not been published right after we recorded. Check it out!

Randall Curtis (@randallcurtis), Jason Evans (@jasonevans), Lisa Kimball (@kimball_lisa), and Kyle Oliver (@kmoliver) are four friends who work for the church but not in a church. They get together a couple times a month to talk about the stuff that matters to them: faith, culture, learning, and service.
