The Impact of Living Loved

This week I am a guest on The Born to Be podcast with Daron Earlwine out of Indianapolis, IN.

I had a wonderful time talking to Daron and appreciated the frank discussion we had about what it means to live loved, to discover the purpose God has for us on this broken planet, and our very disfigured views of what it means to be successful. Hint: What is honored among men and woman is highly desirable in the eyes of God.  We had a wonderful conversation considering these things. I think many of you will enjoy it as well. Daron taped this for his weekly radio show in Indianapolis and the longer version for his podcast.

This is how they described the podcast:

On today’s podcast, Daron and Wayne discuss the idea of living from a place of being truly loved and the impact this has on our purpose, as well as many other areas of our lives.  When we experience a loss or we either lose a dream or a dream has been stolen from us, how do we react? What do we do? Wayne has experienced each of these things in his life, and has some wonderful advice on how to respond and how healing comes from God’s Love.

  1. I appreciate your letting us know about these interviews.
    I’m curious about how the one with Liberty Works Radio Network in late May went.

    1. Hi Lana. It went well, I think. They held me over for another hour. I’m not sure what all the political agenda is with the Network, but I enjoyed the hosts that had me on their show and got to meet one of them a couple of weeks later. Unfortunately, however, they don’t post the shows as podcasts. I have no idea why not, but they are not set up to do it I guess.

  2. I enjoyed hearing the interview tonight. As one who experienced a forced termination from a pastoral position in a congregation 16 years ago, it gave me a chance to reflect on what God offered me through that time that led to a major transformation in my life. I knew nothing about your books or ministry at that time, but that was a time when I began to be comfortable with seriously questioning the performance-based religion that most of Christianity was and is involved in, and I explored with a greater passion what my relationships with God, my family and others were about. Although I did not have the words to explain it, I had a deeper sense of God’s love not only for me, but for others, even those who had forced me out of the ministry position that I had held in the congregation. It wasn’t until I experienced a greater loss, when my wife was killed in a traffic accident, that I discovered your writings – in particular, So You Don’t Want to Go to Church Anymore? – and began to learn a language to speak about, not only about my experience, but to also further learn what it means to live loved. I am grateful for your voice (and writings) which have been in recent years a great inspiration for me in my journey with Christ and others.

    1. Thank you, Doug. I appreciate your gracious words. What a journey you have had! I’m so sorry your wife was killed. I can’t imagine going through that kind of loss, but am sure grateful that somehow in it all Jesus has invited you on a better journey away from religious-obligation and into a love relationship with him. That part is awesome, but there is no doubt lots of pain behind what you’ve written here. I applaud your courage and your freedom to keep leaning into Jesus… Blessings to you, my friend!
