Reunion Roadmap 11/27/2021 – Exploring Stilled Spirits with Hayley Chase

How many people walk away from our congregations and fellowships because they don’t feel welcome? Probably more than we are comfortable admitting. It’s not that we intend to exclude people, but our cultural programming doesn’t have much room for those who deal with anxiety, depression, chronic illness, and many other conditions that make it difficult to fit in. This is something we address as we conclude our conversation with Hayley Chase. 

Extending welcome from hearts of compassion is a big part of what our Heavenly Father intends. That’s an aspect of our life in Yeshua that Barry Phillips and David Jones discuss in the second half of their midrash on the Plumb Line of Righteousness. It’s also what we hear in the music of our special guest artists Teshuva and Mason Clover.

Reunion Roadmap 11/20/2021 – Exploring Stilled Spirits with Hayley Chase

Do we have room in the Body of Messiah for people who sorrow and hurt? We say we do, but what do we learn when we ask some probing questions about our interaction with those who are walking through a lifetime of chronic pain? 

These are the questions we explore with Hayley Chase. The answers often are not encouraging – not because we intentionally exclude those with mental chronic physical health challenges, but because we’re simply not equipped to notice their challenges, nor help them endure and overcome.

This second part of our three-part interview with Hayley introduces a conversation between Barry Phillips and David Jones about adjusting our lives to our Creator’s Plumb Line of Righteousness. Barry and the Aleph Tav Band provide the musical emphasis in this show that investigates some of the practical considerations of living as disciples of Messiah Yeshua.

Reunion Roadmap 11/13/2021 – Exploring Stilled Spirits with Hayley Chase

What’s the connection between a mental disorder and a chronic illness? It’s a much closer connection than you may think. For one thing, both are conditions that stay with a person indefinitely – meaning there’s no foreseeable end point at which the sufferer can say, “I’m cured.”

Hayley Chase has experience with this kind of persistent challenge. Over the next three shows, she will share her story about wrestling with mental health issues from childhood. The challenges she has faced come not only from within, but also from people around her who haven’t understood how to come alongside her and help, and quite often end up unintentionally making things more difficult.

This is a difficult topic, but one that impacts all of us. The people of God should be the first to come around our suffering brothers and sisters, and that’s why Hayley is sharing her story!

This is a story of hope, and that’s exactly what Barry Phillips and David Jones discuss in their midrash. As they explain, our hope is linked with faith, which is not just belief, but a call to action! They are joined by Teshuva and Will Spires, who bring musical messages of hope.
