Kevin's story includes two divorces, climbing huge mountains, looking for Noah's Ark, skiing to the North Pole, and more. Kevin was confronted with the emptiness inside of him, which led him to a path of vulnerability and letting Jesus' grace meet him in his brokenness. This led Kevin to found Grace Explorations, a place for men to tell their stories of meeting this type of grace amidst their brokenness. Kevin recently had cardiac arrest while out for a run. He died for 15 minutes, met the Risen Christ, and tells about the amazing experience.

Noah sits down to talk with Todd Wilson about God's design for sex within marriage between a man and a woman--balancing the need to hold on to biblical truth while holding on to biblical compassion for those who identify as gay or as same sex attracted.
The topics of gender dysphoria, transgender issues, homosexuality, pornography, and sex outside of marriage are all discussed. Also discussed is how the Church must do a better job in talking about sex and in providing a supported lifestyle path of community for those who are committed to living a single, celibate life.
Dr. Todd Wilson is the Co-Founder and President of the Center for Pastor Theologians and the author of multiple books, including Mere Sexuality. Mere Sexuality was a recent Flip Side Book Club read where Noah and podcast listeners interacted through the book's contents at https://www.noahfilipiak.com/category/the-flip-side-book-club/

Noah interviews Preston Sprinkle on how to talk about politics & polarizing issues. The heart of this topic comes from the social media and political climate we are in where it has become very difficult to have civil and loving conversation with people you disagree with. We also look at way the Church goes too far in being partisan or to the other extreme of avoiding biblical issues that happen to be political.
Preston Sprinkle (Ph.D.) is an international speaker and a New York Times bestselling author, who’s written a dozen books including Embodied: Transgender Identities, the Church & What the Bible has to say, and People to Be Loved: Why Homosexuality Is not just an Issue. Preston currently serves as the president of The Center for Faith, Sexuality & Gender, an organization that equips Christians to engage questions about faith, sexually & gender with theological faithfulness and courageous love. Preston also hosts the popular podcast “Theology in the Raw” and posts regularly on his YouTube channel “Preston Sprinkle.”

Noah pauses to reflect on the unprecedented time of history we are experiencing with COVID-19. As followers of Jesus, can we reflect on where our security really lies? Can we reflect on how busy and hectic we normally live our lives and what we can do with this forced pause?

Nick and Noah talk through the desire that is underneath the desire to look at pornography, and how the only real way to find freedom is to have that desire met in legitimate ways. Listen in to find out what those legitimate ways are and how you can get past the "every time is the last time" mentality toward pornography and sexual sin. The "legitimate ways" of meeting our deepest desires applies to any area of struggle you may be facing, not just pornography.
Nick is the Executive Director of Pure Desire Ministries. He has been in leadership for 15+ years. He was in Pastoral Ministry at East Hills Alliance Church in Kelso, Washington, for 14 years. Nick has a Bachelor’s in Pastoral Studies from Crown College and an MDiv from Bethel Seminary. He has authored two books, Setting Us Free and Safe: Creating a Culture of Grace in a Climate of Shame.
