Celebrating one year and 20 episodes of our podcast
In the ever-evolving landscape of our culture, adapting to the changing needs of communities has become a difficult but necessary endeavor for Christians. One year ago, an exciting partnership between Fresh Expressions Florida and Fresh Expressions United Methodist unfolded, resulting in the creation of our new podcast called "New People // New Ways." Hosted by Michael Beck and Piper Ramsey-Sumner, this podcast has become a source of inspiration for Christians who are passionate about loving those neglected by the church. Through the stories and insights of our diverse guests, New People // New Ways delves into the heart of the Fresh Expressions movement and beyond.
Over the past 12 months, New People // New Ways has produced and shared 20 episodes in video and audio format. The guests featured on the podcast have been an extraordinary blend: from renowned scholars and bishops to laypeople and local pastors. These individuals bring their unique perspectives and experiences to the forefront, shedding light on the incredible ways Christians are responding to the evolving needs of their communities.
The diversity of the guests mirrors the multifaceted nature of the Fresh Expressions movement itself. From scholarly discussions exploring the theological underpinnings of the movement to personal stories and learnings from everyday people leading fresh expressions in their communities, each episode provides new insights and inspiration.
With listeners across the world, the podcast has become a source of inspiration not only for those within the Christian community but also for anyone seeking to understand the dynamic intersection of faith and contemporary culture. It serves as a platform where ideas are exchanged, innovations are celebrated, and the transformative power of Christ’s love and grace is explored.
Looking ahead, we intend to continue providing our listeners with extraordinary guests from across the world who are passionate about creating spaces of spiritual healing and belonging that fit the needs of those around them. As New People // New Ways continues to grow, we hope that its impact will as well, inspiring individuals to embrace new ways of being church and fostering a sense of unity in the diverse expressions of Christianity across the world.
