In today’s lively discussion, Tom “ambushes” Gavin with an impromptu question: What is the local church’s responsibility towards its members/attendees? Listen as Tom and Gavin hash out what they see are just some of the duties that a local expression of a church should perform to serve its congregation.
Today, Tom and Gavin reflect on the many ways that their churches have blessed them over the years. During times of blessing and during times of heartbreak, our brothers and sisters in Christ rally to help and encourage us. Let us continue to bless each other as we practice the “one-anothers.”
The Keep It Simple Podcast has been around for five years! Today, Gavin and Tom reflect on the past five years of podcasting and being advocates for simple forms of church (house church, organic church, micro church).
Why do Christians worry? What are we anxious about? What are we trying so very hard to achieve? Is our effort in vain? Are we worried for nothing? Listen as Gavin and Tom discuss our anxieties.
You can tell a lot about a church by what it values or holds dear. Today, Gavin and Tom talk about what they consider to be the strongest values of any church. This is part two of a two part series.
This week Tom had the opportunity to meet with Richard Jacobson, of the Unchurching podcast and author of the book by the same name. While the name of the book may be provocative, Richard assures us that he is not anti-church. Through his writing, speaking and art, he articulates his love for the church. He advocates for a genuine expression of the ecclesia as described in the scriptures –where the church is not just a place that people gather, but IS the people who gather.

Today, Gavin and Tom – The Simple Guys – take a few minutes to remind our listeners why we produce this podcast. Hint: it’s not to make money! Seriously, we do this podcast to promote healthy churches through simple, organic and family-like structures. Listen to hear what exactly that means.
