Risking Damnation

Risking Damnation
By Derek Brouwer and Chris Redshirt (mostly)
About this podcast


Church should be dangerous and risky. We are weed friendly, sex positive, inclusive, Jesus centric, and oh so very dangerous. This is the podcast part of our ministry where we try to be intelligent, relevant, and a little bit funny.

Podcast legends Chris and Derek return to the podcastsphere (if that is a thing) with thrilling tales, near theology, opinions galore, ambient cat sounds, cookies, and an almost cogent discussion about mixing marijuana and your faith. If you were wondering if Jesus would prefer indica or sativa, this would be the podcast for you even though we sort of forgot to answer that particular question on the air. Sativa, by the way, totally sativa. In Romans, Paul is very clear about that.
