Thought I’d share some sites/individuals that have served as sources of inspiration for me in my walk and everyday life – Enjoy!
P4CM – Passion for Christ Movement
A movement of believers where worship by means of art and creativity is encouraged. They also hold an annual conference in L.A. called Rhetoric. I attended Rhetoric 2016 and got to see and hear some amazingly talented individuals share their passion for Jesus and praise God through the art of spoken word.
Check out P4CM’s Youtube Channel for some epic, God-honoring spoken word pieces.
I’m no theologian, at least not formally, but I have been learning that it only takes an open and willing heart to diligently study the scriptures and dig deeper into the Word. As a supplement to the Bible, I often find myself reading articles from this site. John Piper is the founder and teacher of the site – check out DesiringGod. Also, his Look at the Book series is pretty awesome too!
This is a branch off of Focus on the Family. It’s a site dedicated to 20- and 30-somethings and offers a wide range of articles and podcasts on various topics regarding singleness & dating, financial preparedness, community and even, marriage. Check out Boundless and subscribe to their podcasts!
Ever wanted to find good CHH (Christian Hip Hop) but were at a loss for where to find music that both feeds and hypes up your soul? Look no further than Clean Ears. It’s a bi-monthly podcast by two women who are passionate about two things: God and good, clean music that glorifies Him! If your playlists are in a funk and you need a fix, check out their podcast on the Podcasts App, Google Play or you can find them on Spotify and listen to their monthly playlists there (search for clean_ears_podcast for more!).
Oh my goodness, you guys! My dear friend and co-worker got me hooked on this podcast. The most beautiful and sometimes, downright ridiculous, stories about “love, loss and redemption” can be found in Modern Love. Originally a column in the New York Times, Modern Love is now a full fledged, weekly podcast. Check out the Podcasts App (for those iPhone users out there) and subscribe to Modern Love. It can always be counted on for a good cry, a needed laugh or just some insightful perspective.
Joe is the founder of ChaseGodtv, an incredibly gifted spoken word artist and soulful musician. To be honest, I’ve had a crush on him since I found him about two years ago and it’s going strong. I love the honesty and vulnerability he shares with the community he’s created via his platform. And he inspired me to learn more about community and discipleship at a time in my life when I felt lost in the Christian bubble I’d been standing in for most of my life. I appreciate him, and artists like Jamaica West and Jackie Hill Perry–showing that there’s more than one way to be a black Christian millennial.
