S2E7 Tom Smith, Part 2 – When faith goes deeper than belief

Before we jump back into our conversation with Rev. Tom Smith, we talk about mentors and the role that they have had in our lives. This leads us to talk about the importance of formation that moves beyond our heart and into the practices in our lives. Then, Tom begins the second part of our conversation with a story about someone who was working to find real faith that played out in all areas of life. And then this gem… “I have accepted Jesus into my heart, but how do I get him into my penis.” We also get to hear about how the outdoors play an important part in formation for Tom and others.

Tom has an open invitation for MMP pastors and kingdom leaders to come to South Africa and explore the wilderness with him and share a BBQ. If you are interested contact Doug or J.R. Or, if you are interested in blessing a pastor to do this financially, contact Doug or J.R.

Questions:

When can you have a meal in a park in the next 7 days? When can you invite someone else?

In the next 3 days try the Ignatian prayer.

Instead of asking “what are we supposed to do”, ask, “Who is Jesus?”
