Addiction can take many forms. Drugs, alcohol, food, even gossip. Everyone struggles and with so many temptations, life becomes a battle of will and wits to overcome. Join us as we talk about our personal addictions and struggles that keep us from becoming more like Christ.

Joe and I had the pleasure of interviewing church planter and author Keith Giles. He wrote a book called Jesus Untangled: Crucifying Our Politics to Pledge Allegiance to the Lamb.
It was a great conversation and hopefully it will spark a paradigm shift when thinking about our place, as Jesus followers, in The Kingdom and politics.
