Living free from unspoken expectations (With Kurtis Vanderpool)

How can we truly live free from the unspoken expectations held against us by others and ourselves?

Many times Christians hold themselves and have others hold a certain level of expectations that are simply not healthy. From relationships and community to our own desires, how do we quench those unspoken expectations? 

This week, we are talking with Kurtis Vanderpool: Author, Public Speaker, and Life Coach. We hear Kurtis’ deconstruction journey and why he and many others continue down such a seemingly uncertain road despite the seeming uncertainty. Kurtis talks of what it means to live free of unspoken expectations and how the love of Christ draws an authentic community to us when we need it most.

This week we talk about:

  • Pursuing Christ beyond the walls of the church
  • Relationships with past church members ofter deconstruction
  • Why one would leave the comfort of religion to chase Christ into the unknown
  • Allowing God to guide true community
  • Standing alongside others when they need support
  • “Living Free”
