March 23, 2023 • 37 MIN
When were you glad as a child, and what could that look like for you as an adult? What does shame look like in your life? In the lives of people you love? @jessie.horney and @lyssastadt11 get really practical about calling, purpose, miracles, and shame, with little shout outs to Tim Keller and Brene Brown.

La Familia, Pt. 10: Loving Our Neighbors Together
March 20, 2023 • 27 MIN
“God uses the spaces where we say yes to change and shape us into the people he wants us to be.” Through the story of Elijah and the Widow of Zarephath in 1 Kings, Andrew talks to us about the art of neighboring and its radical juxtaposition to the individualistic culture we live in for our tenth episode of the La Familia series. Andrew walks through the lies we believe that inhibit our impulse to live out our call to hospitality, our daring mission to go love the world, encouraging us to gather with our communities and pray, identify and go together into spaces that we feel a pull to show radical, generous love.
La Familia, Pt. 9: Lost Coins
March 15, 2023 • 40 MIN
“These stories are an invitation to the religious leaders to repent. A challenge to change our thinking and believe something new about what people are worth. And it’s an invitation to us to rethink the notorious sinners in our lives and to accept Jesus’ invitation not to care for ourselves but to care for the one.” Jessie walks through the familiar language of “calling” in a way that asks us to re-examine the word in the ninth segment of the La Familia series. Beginning with the question “does my life remind people of Jesus?” and examining the kinds of stories Jesus tells when detailing our collective “calling”, Jessie lays out our missional purpose in the world: to remove the heavy garment of shame from those around us. She reminds us that when we learn that we are beloved, we have room to believe in the belovedness of others, creating unlikely relationships with those in our sphere of influence.

La Familia, Pt. 8: Jesus as Our Spiritual Parent
February 27, 2023 • 46 MIN
“As spiritual parents, we don’t give people their identity, but we make sure they know what it is.” In the eighth episode of La Familia, Robert exemplifies spiritual authority and spiritual parenting by examining the life of Jesus in Mark, the ultimate imitation. He talks about how Jesus does not use shame or coercion in relationships, but rather interacts with us through invitation and challenge, ensuring that we know who we are and what we’re doing, and embodying authority as an ambassador of the Father in the world. It is from this place that we can bring the comfort and peace of the presence of God, secure in our identity and our future.
La Familia, Pt. 7: The Rhythm of The Kingdom (2/2)
February 20, 2023 • 32 MIN
“All of our deepest friendships happen when we are doing things together on mission.” In the seventh episode of the La Familia series, Robert continue teaching on the rhythm of the kingdom of God, seen through the rhythms of Jesus’ life and the life of the early church: up, in and out. He talks about our need for predictable patterns of connection, formation, and purpose, and how kingdom power, being truly missional, comes from a combination of these rhythms. He urges us to examine what it would look like to take on a more wholistic shape as God’s people.
La Familia, Pt. 6: The Rhythm of the Kingdom (1/2)
February 13, 2023 • 42 MIN
“Family are those who surrender completely, laying down their agenda fully for the agenda of Jesus.” In the sixth episode of La Familia, Robert talks about how the rhythm of the kingdom is seen through living into the idea of family on mission. Using texts from the Epistles, Robert talks about the virtue of humility, the key practice that will move us into formative covenant with one another as we surrender our will and preferences for the sake of smaller units of community. He asks us: “what needs to change so I don’t miss out on God’s love and oikos for me?”
A Conversation on Spiritual Parenting and Imitation
February 8, 2023 • 35 MIN

La Familia, Pt. 5: Spiritual Parents- 1 Cor. 4:6-17
February 6, 2023 • 28 MIN
“Truly learning from others in this way requires something that none of us like to do, and that word is submission.” In our fifth episode of La Familia, we hear from Bob on the concepts of authority, submission, discipleship, and spiritual parenting that lead to maturity and growing up as images of God in the world. He challenges us to step into relationship with others and offer ourselves proactively, willing to meet others the way we were once met.

La Familia, Pt. 4: Jesus Builds a New Family
January 30, 2023 • 52 MIN
“Have you brought Jesus into your own family? Or have you joined into Jesus’ family?” In this week’s segment of La Familia, Robert talks about Jesus’ redefinition of family, stemming from God’s identity as a communal, relational being. He walks through three phases of walking in relationship with Jesus, from a friend, to a follower, to a family member, asking us where we fall, and how Jesus might be calling us further and deeper into life with him.
La Familia, Pt. 3: From "Family" to Family
January 23, 2023 • 47 MIN
“Jesus is reinventing the family into something much more than blood and DNA.” In the third segment of our La Familia series, Robert talks about belonging in God’s family, as we are all adopted as children into the kingdom of God. He asks us what voices we hear, what those voices are saying about us, and whether or not they’re from our good Father and a covenant relationship that results in connection, belonging, provision and obligation to one another.
La Familia, Pt. 2: Celebrating Generosity and Planning for Mission
January 16, 2023 • 49 MIN
“There has to be a stop and a redirection if we want to see something new.” Today’s episode details our core value of sharing and giving as we reflect on giving at Redemption Hill, celebrating generosity and planning for mission.

La Familia Pt. 1: Yes, But How?
January 9, 2023 • 33 MIN
“We are not saved from this world. We are taken up and adopted into God’s family, and that is the thing that changes everything. We belong to him.” In the first episode of our first series of the new year, La Familia, Robert talks about what it actually means to be the family of God, a community that rolls deep with each other in our smaller communities, and in the world around us. In texts from 1 John, Isaiah, Mark, and Revelation, he details the need for a shift both in how we see family, but also how we see ourselves, in order to experience true belonging in God as we become part of the family of God on mission in the world.
A Conversation on the Magi and Faith
December 21, 2022 • 32 MIN

Christmas is About... (Advent, Week 4)
December 19, 2022 • 18 MIN
“Christmas is the most offensive holiday because it tells us something that none of us want to hear: that we need a savior.” In the fourth sermon of our Advent series, Bob talks about the fourth candle of advent, the faith candle, or the magi candle. He talks about change, and the reality of God-with-us at Christmas that asks us to look inside and ask ourselves “what, or whom, do we worship?”

December 15, 2022 • 33 MIN

The Shepherd's Joy (Advent, Week 3)
December 12, 2022 • 19 MIN
“What’s spectacular, when we really look at this story, it’s that God would include me.” For our third Advent Sunday, Andrew talks about the shepherd candle, or the candle of joy. He explores joy in conjunction with humility and becoming lowly, God’s intentional seeking of the lowly among us to tell (and proclaim!) his good news, and encourages us to consider what that says about the Jesus we worship on Christmas.

Peace (Advent, Week 2)
December 5, 2022 • 30 MIN
“Peace is not just absence of conflict but the harmony between God and people.” In the second week of Advent, Robert dives into the idea of peace, and how the peace that came into the world with Jesus is radically different than the ways we think of peace as a society. A reality that only comes through through violence, power, and sacrifice, Robert walks through the angel’s message to Mary, and asks us to consider what it would look like for us to commit to the work of kingdom peace–shalom– in our communities.
A Conversation on Mary and the Prophetic Witness
December 2, 2022 • 34 MIN
What great words from Kyle as we talk about Mary, her role as a prophetic witness in her own context, her bravery and example for our own discipleship, the humility she exemplifies for us, the humility Jesus is calling us to, and how that looks so different from the way we hope and work in our own cultural moment. Listen to the sermon on Mary on the podcast, up now! Next week’s podcast will be available this FRIDAY in case any micro churches need it for their gatherings this weekend.
Mary's Hope and the First Christian Rap (Advent, Week 1)
November 28, 2022 • 16 MIN
“Because Mary knows who God is, and has placed her hope in the story… she’s able to respond.” For the first week of Advent, we are focusing on prophetic hope that advent brings. In today’s short homily, Kyle walks us through the story and the song of Mary in Luke 1. He asks us to stop and consider the reality of what God was asking of Mary when he asked her to carry Jesus. As God invites us into the same calling of participating with God in the world, Kyle reminds us that God still, in his abundant mercy, works through the humble and ordinary people to do his work of justice and love, asking us where we place our hope, and whether or not we will act on that hope this advent season.
(Philo)Xenia: Hospitality is the Mark of the Kingdom
November 14, 2022 • 48 MIN
“What does your life say about what you believe?” In the third and final episode of our series Philo-Xenia, Robert dives into Matthew 25, defining hospitality as the badge of belonging to the kingdom of God. He looks at the difference between spoken beliefs and embodied beliefs, and the way our actions are a perfect representation of what we believe and who we put your faith in. He offers us practical ways to live out hospitality in our neighborhoods, and challenges us change the way we see, joining God in the work God is doing all around us. This conversation is part of a larger series on Hospitality created for Redemption Hill and House Your Neighbor, a nonprofit that seeks to increase housing stock in Boise in response to our current housing crisis.

(Philo)Xenia: A Conversation (2/3)
November 9, 2022 • 29 MIN
A great conversation with @jessie.horney about Jesus and practical hospitality- both barriers to our own welcoming, and real life ways we can be conduits of hospitality in the world around us, both giving and receiving hospitality. We end with a little discussion on identity and how our belovedness is what allows us to shower love on other people. Listen to all of Jessie’s sermon on the podcast now, and return to this conversation there as well, if you so desire! P.s. my dog decided this was the moment to wake up, bark, ask to go outside, walk about the kitchen with her noisy feet, etc so I apologize for the extra noise!!
(Philo)Xenia: Sharing Our Table
November 7, 2022 • 38 MIN
““We’ve gotten really good at keeping the wrong people out, but now we can’t seem to find the latch to open that gate back up.” In the second episode of our series Philo-Xenia, Jessie looks at the life of Jesus in Luke, and how Jesus showed radical, intimate, vulnerable hospitality to friends and strangers alike. She talks about 3 barriers that we come up against when faced with the choice to be hospitable, the paradigm shift we need when considering hospitality, how our assurance in knowing who we are in God changes our ability to show that same love to others. She asks us to wrestle with what this idea of hospitality could look like now, in our own lives, not as travelers but as people who have a place to stay. What does hospitality look like for us, now? This conversation is part of a larger series on Hospitality created for Redemption Hill and House Your Neighbor, a nonprofit that seeks to increase housing stock in Boise in response to our current housing crisis.

(Philo)Xenia: Stranger Danger, Aliens and The One Thing You Should Never Do
October 31, 2022 • 38 MIN
“Hospitality is at the center of what it means to be God’s people.” In the first episode of our series, Philo-Xenia (the greek word for hospitality), Robert compares our practices of hospitality to the behavior of people in the Ancient Near East, looking at Abraham in Genesis. He looks at the provision, protection and lovingkindness of God, laying out what it might look like to embody the hospitality of God in the church, rather than be characterized by the subtle and not-so-subtle hostility of our Western individualism.
Core Value: Contextualization
October 24, 2022 • 55 MIN
“How a message is delivered is just as important as the context of the message.” Our series, Liturgy: The Work of the People is wrapping up this week with our last Core Value of Contextualization. Robert talked about contextualization as a kingdom movement into the culture and the importance of contextualizing our structures to what people can and will understand. He describes contextualization as being about direction, sacrifice, a changed message, “third spaces”, and an embodied good news.
Core Value: The Ends of the Earth and the Depths of Our Souls
October 17, 2022 • 51 MIN
“The work is to do for the one or the few that we wish we could do for everyone.” Our 18th Core Value is a commitment to bringing the good news of the kingdom to the ends of the earth, acknowledging that we cannot do this work unless this same good news has penetrated the depths of our souls. In addition to a discussion about this value and a highlight of some of Redemption Hill’s missionary partners from Robert, we also hear from Tim Rule, Tavita Jenkins, and Laura Simplot on their own experiences with the transforming power of God’s love through the curriculum “Untying the Knots of Your Heart.” Note: Due to safety concerns of some of our missionary partners, a portion of the recording has been cut.

Core Value: The Lost
October 10, 2022 • 27 MIN
“Proclamation is an invitation. We respect the freedom of the hearers, and its’ never done in a manipulative way. The church proposes, never imposes anything on the lost.” In our discussion of our Core Value of our commitment to the Lost, Andrew walked us through different interactions with Jesus in the gospels, and his posture towards those who others deemed “scum” and “notorious sinners.” Andrew walks through four ways we can follow the way of Jesus as we proclaim Jesus’ love for the lost and marginalized among us–through prayer, humility, invitation and witness. Note: We had some technical issues with microphones this week, so there is a 45 second cut in towards the beginning of this episode, along with residual subpar sound quality throughout. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Core Value: The Poor
October 3, 2022 • 32 MIN
“To not engage in the injustice and suffering is a misrepresentation, a distortion of the gospel. It is to fail to draw to the world the picture that Jesus drew and is calling us to draw along with him, and it fails to join Jesus where he is busy setting things right. So this is the real question: are we, as a community, ready to engage in the work Jesus is calling us into?” As we near the end of our Liturgy series, Bob speaks on our Core Value of The Poor, walking through passages from Isaiah and Matthew, examining the life of Jesus and his response to the poor around him as a model of our response to the poor around us. From the lens of justice as a proclamation of the hope to come, he calls us to action, asking if we are willing to let Jesus disrupt our lives as we work to follow him.
A Conversation on Biblical Justice
September 28, 2022 • 39 MIN
We live with “the echoes of a voice that calls us to live with a dream for justice.” (N.T. Wright) :: a really fantastic conversation on biblical justice with Robert today, talking about why justice is such a polarized issue in our country, how we can pursue justice when issues feel really big, the whisper of hope we hold in our bodies, and what it looks like to work towards justice in the way of Jesus.
Core Value: Biblical Justice
September 26, 2022 • 52 MIN
“The church has to be a counter-example of justice in the world.” For this week’s Liturgy, Robert talks about the Core Value of Biblical Justice. Robert defines Biblical Justice as justice that is not only social, racial, and economic, but the overarching work of the people of God to join the work of the Kingdom of God in setting things right, and making things whole. He calls us through practical action we can take on a local level, encourages us to look for the injustice in our own neighborhood and leverage our privilege for those without, and rock the boat of injustice with our courage, truth, sacrifice and voice.
A Conversation on Simplicity
September 21, 2022 • 33 MIN
In today's episode, Alyssa interviews Robert all about different daily concepts and practices connected with simplicity- the theology of work, stewardship, community and emotions around our possessions. Thanks to all who tuned in to our TENTH episode! We are grateful for you and look forward to continuing to share this space with you as we go forward.
Core Value: Simplicity
September 19, 2022 • 42 MIN
“Don’t waste the things God has entrusted to you when they were meant for someone else.” After a little break, we are almost finishing up our Liturgy series with Robert talking about our thirteenth core value of Simplicity. He walks through Jesus’ teachings on money and possessions in Matthew, Mark and Luke, encouraging us into a life of deep dependence on Jesus’ abundance that connects us with God and others, rather than harboring an isolating mentality of scarcity.

A Conversation on Deconstruction and Identity
September 8, 2022 • 34 MIN
Alyssa interviews Robert in today's episode, where they really dig into the ideas of deconstruction (and what we mean by it), missionary as a term and a practice, what we face when we lean into the way of Jesus, and how we can accept the easy yoke of Jesus from an identity as beloved.

The Good News Does Not Come Dressed In Glory
August 29, 2022 • 38 MIN
“God’s church doesn’t have a mission. God’s mission has a church.” We’re taking a break from our Core Values series this week, as we held our gathering in the park with all of The Syndicate, a movement of micro-churches that we belong to, committed to engaging every neighborhood with the gospel and sending every believer as a missionary. This week, looking at Jesus’ instructions to the apostles in Matthew 10, Robert talked about what it means to be the church- sent ones in the way of Jesus-, and our command to listen, obey the challenge to go into the world, and take upon us the easy yoke of Jesus, the light burden that tells our anxieties that God’s grace is sufficient for today.

Core Value: Sharing and Giving
August 22, 2022 • 36 MIN
“Can we trust in God’s generosity instead of trusting in the world’s scarcity?” Kyle hosts our eleventh episode of our Liturgy series, expounding on the core value of Sharing and Giving. Walking through passages from Matthew, Acts, and the Psalms, he talks about God’s creativity, cultivation, kindness, and abundance in connection with our own tendency towards worry, exploring how trusting in God leads to our own generosity of spirit and builds God’s kingdom one moment at a time.
Core Value: Empowerment
August 15, 2022 • 34 MIN
“You and I are original artworks of God.” In the tenth episode of our series, “Liturgy: The Work of the People,” Cindy talks about our tenth Core Value of Empowerment.

Core Value: Passion
August 8, 2022 • 40 MIN
“Our journey was saying yes to God shaping us, not changing our circumstances.” In our ninth “Liturgy” episode, Jessie talks about our core value of Passion through the lens of story and the hero’s journey, touching on the big ideas of anxiety, suffering, lies, truth, and faith. Reframing anxiety as a balance between hope and fear, she talks about what it looks like to step over the thresholds of faith again and again as we respond to God’s call to follow him, carrying the good news of Jesus into the world.
Core Value: Each Other
August 1, 2022 • 35 MIN
“Our commitment to each other is a commitment to each other’s burdens and needs.” In the eighth episode of the series, “Liturgy: The Work of the People,” Matt shares about our core value of Each Other. He talks about how this core value is at the heart of learning the way of Jesus, expounding on the value of loving each other and the world as a conscious commitment to our small communities and the church community at large, a commitment of relationship that is willing to be vulnerable, humble, intentional, generous, and accepting.
Core Value: Humility
July 25, 2022 • 47 MIN
“The move from pride to humility is largely done in a way that moves from the outside in.” In episode 7 of our “Liturgy” series, Bob hosts a conversation on our core value, Humility. Referencing the New Testament writers, he explores common beliefs about humility, how to cultivate it in community as a practice that develops patience, forgiveness, respect, kindness, and a willingness to be wrong, and how this all stems from the freedom that comes when we believe that we are incredibly loved by our Creator.
Core Value: Zeal with Contemplation
July 18, 2022 • 43 MIN
“It’s about active trust and your inner life.” We are so excited to hear from Laura for our sixth episode in the series “Liturgy: The Work of the People,” as she talks about our core value of Zeal with Contemplation. Exploring the stories of Martha and Mary, Laura walks through how to navigate these paradoxical rhythms, the “gentle swaying” of work and rest, of faith and action, and of zeal and contemplation in our lives as a community, focusing on the transformative practice of silence and solitude.
Core Value: Missional Prayer
July 11, 2022 • 37 MIN
“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. Do you believe that about your prayers?” In the fifth “Liturgy” episode, Kyle explores the core value of missional prayer, a powerful, life-changing, life-bringing practice that shapes us in our daily liturgies to be more like Jesus. He walks through the commands in James to pray in every circumstance, with and for the community and the world and talks about the power that comes when we pray in faith. He also describes the discipline of Shema in our updated context: the communal prayer seeking to love the Lord with all of ourselves, and to love our neighbors as ourselves–the core of what missional prayer is all about.
Core Value: Unity (The Apostle's Creed)
June 27, 2022 • 46 MIN
"This is the good news of the gospel: that we are made to be one with the God who made all things.” In our third “Liturgy” episode, Robert jumps into our core value of Unity head first, through the lens of the Apostle’s Creed and Jesus’ High Priestly Prayer in John 17. He asks the questions of what it means to be a community and why it’s so difficult for us as Jesus followers, talking about the story of our belonging to Christ and to one another. He walks through what unity looks like, derived from mission and direction, values, grace, humility, in relation to the historic and ecumenical church, and in grabbing hold of the clear and essential things with ferocity.
Core Value: MicroChurch
June 22, 2022 • 53 MIN
“The work we do together is the work of God’s kingdom.” In our second “Liturgy” episode, Robert talks about our core value of MicroChurch.

June 22, 2022 • 42 MIN
“What you do is who you’re becoming.” Our summer sermon series, “Liturgy: The Work of the People,” is exploring our liturgies–the work of the people of the Kingdom–and throughout the next few months we are diving into the core values that we hold as a community.
