Theologian, pastor and author A. J. Swoboda grew up pro-choice, pluralist, tolerant, suspicious of any kind of exclusivist, conservative ideology. But then something unexpected happened that upended his world view. He says, “Church was a foreign land. For me God was nice, thoughtful, non-judgmental and progressive. God was probably a Democrat. That’s the image I had of what God was most likely like.”
What was that surprising event and how did it change his entire life? On Monday, Maxine and Jeannie find out the answer from A.J. when they interview him about his second book A Glorious Dark: Finding Hope in the Tension between Belief and Experience. You won’t want to miss this!
Pastor A.J. Swoboda, author of Messy, God Likes It That Way, believes we’re all messed up -- Christians and nonbelievers alike. The difference is, Christians have Jesus and hope while non-Christians stumble alone. He disagrees with those who claim the Christian life is easy. Following Jesus is hard. When someone confesses they want to follow Jesus, A.J. says, maybe we should “punch them square in the face . . . and say, ‘Welcome to the kingdom of pain.’” A.J. claims his own life became way messier after he met Jesus. And Jesus was Mary’s mess.
Dr. Swoboda earned his Ph.D. from the University of Birmingham, England, in his early thirties. Besides planting and pastoring a successful church with his wife, Quinn, he teaches seminary and speaks to audiences of thousands. The startling statements A.J. makes will cause you to pause, ponder, and perceive Truth. Join us and rethink your views on the Christian life.

Try as you might, sometimes you're going to have mess-ups in life. Wrong turns, uninformed decisions, you name it, they happen to all of us. But it's not what happens to you, it's how you respond to what happens to you that makes the difference.
We're going to examine some misconceptions about how God feels about your mess-ups. Is He angry with you? Are you unqualified to serve Him? Does He expect you to be perfect?
Tune in as I discuss these and other questions with professor and pastor, A. J. Swoboda, author of "Messy: God Likes It That Way." Find out why he says that God actually enjoys using us despite the "messiness" in our lives.

Christianity is messy. Unanswered prayers. Painful choices. Unresolved regrets. We're called to have faith, and yet we doubt. We try to be perfect, but we fall short. This is the chaos. It's all around us. There's no limit to it. And there's no quick fix for it. We interview A.J. Swoboda, author of Messy, who reassures Christians that God can reveal Himself in their clutter.
