Christ was a teacher; he held out Kingdom truth and reality to those whom he ministered.
At the Table we are committed to developing and equipping the entire human person: mind, soul, body, and heart. Teaching is part of our integrative approach to building up the Body of Christ.
We do this on Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings during seasonal classes and Sunday Schools (look for Sunday morning teaching time to return in September!). We teach during the proclamation of the Word on Sundays, in our DNA groups, and informally around the the tables at our Table Groups.
One medium of teaching that we find particularly helpful is the podcast. Below are some of our favorites.
- Gravity Leadership Podcast. This is a podcast that Ben Sternke and I co-host. Much of the heart and vision of The Table is expressed and worked out on this podcast.
- Trinity Mission Daily Office Podcast. This is the daily office (morning, midday, and evening prayer) from the Book of Common Prayer read aloud in audio format. It’s perfect if you would like to pray the Daily Office but find the Book of Common Prayer intimidating or confusing.
- Word & Table Podcast. This is a great introduction to the Anglican tradition, covering a wide variety of topics (from an Anglo-Catholic perspective).
- The Bible Project Podcast. Probably the best biblical theology podcast on the interwebs. Covers a variety of topics, theology, ideas, symbols, words from scripture. Highly informative and entertaining.
- On Being Podcast. Hosted by Krista Tippett, featuring curated conversations on culture, spirituality, science, humanity, the arts, etc. Always provocative and stimulating, this is one way to remain connected to what’s happening in our world.
- This Cultural Moment Podcast. Fascinating look at culture and following Jesus in our post-Christian world.
- Pass the Mic Podcast. – Hosted by Jemar Tisby, this podcast features a black Christian collective that engages issues of religion, race, justice, and culture from a biblical perspective.
What would you add to this list? Comment and let us know! We’d like to continue to curate teaching resources for our church and community.
P.S. We are contemplating ways we could use podcasting more effectively as a teaching vehicle at The Table. Let us know if you have ideas about that.
