Subscribe: iTunes | Stitcher | TuneIn Radio | Google Play


Episode 22 features an interview with Steve Brown. Steve is the president of Arrow Leadership, which is an organization focussed on developing Christian leaders. We talk about how we often want a “balanced life,” but that this might be quite different from a Christ-centered life. Steve is passionate about helping people develop sustainable rhythms that support a life centered on Jesus.

Some of What We Talk About:

  • Gaining basic awareness that God loves you, and why this is so important
  • Getting out of a performance mindset with God
  • Serving from acceptance versus serving for acceptance.
  • The danger of seeking “balance” in life
  • Being Christ centered rather than seeking balance
  • What are the sustainable rhythms that support a Christ-centred life?
  • Having a plan, a place, and a time to connect with God
  • Praying for God to teach you to abide, and praying on the armor of God
  • Having a Prayer calendar
  • The value of Sabbath and how our society suffers from “hurry sickness”
