Christian, God isn't mad at you and he's not disappointed in you. If that's the message you've been hearing, you've been lied to. His love and affection for you is unending and will never change or diminish. We invite you to pull up a chair and your favorite beverage and join the conversation. We're Jesus-centered and gospel-focused (no, really!) with no strings attached.

You've reached the podcast home of Mike and Susan Adams, a former pastor and pastor's wife who survived a crash and burn into grace in 2009 and aren't afraid to talk about it. What we bought before, we just can't sell. Welcome to the Grace Café Podcast!

For your convenience, we've made subscribing in your favorite app simple. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Welcome to episode 21 of The Grace Cafe Podcast. This is the second of two episodes we recorded during our recent stay in Chattanooga Tennessee. Our friends, Chris Stapleton and Josh Scott from The Simple Gospel Podcast joined us again for this conversation, recorded in our Chattanooga loft. We were also thrilled to be joined by Chris' parents, Rick and Sharon Stapleton. We've been wanting to get them on our podcast for quite some time and it finally came together.

In The Message Bible, Matthew 11:28-30 reads,

"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

Our conversation was centered around our own experiences with those "unforced rhythms of grace" as we shared life stories and  experiences. For Susan and me, our 7-day stay in Chattanooga was a warm example of unforced rhythms of grace as the common bond we shared was both instant and unforced.

 

We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did.
