Noah just moved to Grand Rapids and is living with his gracious in-laws until his house in Lansing sells. As a result, there's not yet a quiet place to record so this is a bonus episode of a sermon Noah preached on January 20th, 2019. It is on 1 Peter 1:3-12 and is the last sermon he preached at Crossroads and the most recent sermon he has preached to date! Be encouraged by the true source of our hope, whatever our circumstances.

The last few Flip Side episodes have had the theme of the Father's love healing our shame. Shame being the feeling that we aren't good enough, that we don't measure up. Last episode focused in on what truths to remind ourselves of (vs. the lies of shame). This episode follows up with the key step 2 of the process, and that is having brothers and sisters in Christ who model the Father's love to us. We take a look at what this looks like, including opening up the mailbag to hear how people have experienced this in real time. The mailbag entries also give some thoughts about church small groups. Noah then weighs in on what he thinks of church small groups, and gives listeners a layered plan for finding healing community in their lives.

Episode 12 provides a practical path to walk to fill the hole inside of us that screams out for approval and to be told we are valuable. We typically attempt to fill this hole with sexual sin and fantasy, as well as anything from money, our reputation, to our last three Facebook posts.
Noah's Rant describes why it would be better if robins were extinct.
Jamie Winship talking about shame and living in the truth, instead of believing the lies.

In episode 11 (73), Noah interviews Kevin Butcher, Noah's identical twin, give or take 30 years. Noah and Kevin are both 8's on the Enneagram, ENFP's, D's on theDISC, church planters in the inner city, entrepreneurs, authors, and podcasters... look out! Kevin's similar wiring to Noah has made him a great mentor. Kevin is the executive director of Rooted Ministries, a nonprofit designed to come alongside isolated and discouraged pastors. If that describes you, reach out to Kevin at www.rootedministries.co
Kevin was a lead pastor for 35 years - most recently the founding and lead pastor of Hope Community Church of Detroit, a messy fellowship of human beings from every kind of racial, economic, and educational background who own their emptiness and pursue healing through the love of God in Jesus Christ. In 2018, after 16 years at Hope, Kevin launched and became the executive director of Rooted Ministries, Inc.
Kevin is passionate about helping believers live in authentic community — across racial, socioeconomic and all lines of division — learning to truly love one another in the chaos of real relationships, learning to celebrate our differences, and learning to stay together even when we don't like one another – so that the world will see a living picture of Jesus Christ.
He is also passionate about helping believers find healing and freedom from childhood wounds — the ones that often keep us trapped, living addictively and in deep dysfunction – unable to experience true freedom in Christ. Kevin has come to believe this kind of deep healing comes only through personal, transformational experience with the powerful love of God in Jesus Christ.

Episode 10 discusses the June 2nd scenario of Pastor David Platt praying for President Donald Trump from the stage of a McLean Bible Church worship service. You probably already have lots of predetermined feelings about this, so rather than write something that will make you listen (if you agree), or dismiss this (if you disagree), go ahead and listen and see if there's a different way to approach topics like this than you are used to.
And a tragic day in Flip Side history, there is no Noah's Rant! This turned into a "double episode" length-wise so sit back, catch some corn, and enjoy!
