68. Go to the Desert, Wait for Instruction

Season 1, Ep. 68
I love Steve Carter. He's a great conversationalist and a good human being. Listen in as Steve and I (Sharon Swing) talk about spiritual formation and life story. He gave plenty of sermons that included encouraging people to dive into their own life stories while he was preaching at Willow Creek Community Church while I was there. I cheered him on from the cheap seats. Life took quite a turn for Steve and his family a few years back that left him searching for next steps in immediate fashion. He heard the Spirit whisper to his soul, 'Go to the desert and wait for instruction.' Little did he know his wife had been longing for a nudge in that direction.Steve is now an itinerate teacher at many churches -- sometimes multiple churches on a weekend now that church is virtual. He equips teaching pastors from around the globe.Find out more about Steve Carter at: https://www.stevecarter.org and listen to his new podcast, https://www.hometeampodcast.com.oneLife Maps is, at its core, interested in helping people to recognize and respond to God in their stories.

67. Are You Responsible To or For Others?

Season 1, Ep. 67
Are you responsible TO others or responsible FOR them? It's a very useful distinction for all of our relationships. It may keep you out of trouble, improve your relationships, and put words to why having kids grow up messes with us as parents! We have used this important piece of work from the book, 'Listen For Heaven's Sake' in many of our 'Listen to My Life' workshops as we teach listening skills and explore why some of our relationships need a tune up, and help us name why we take more on than we need to, or get frustrated when others seem to want to control us.We highly recommend this important infographic.
