Wayne continues his conversation with Joni Menard of Edmond, Ok, as they talk about what it means to be deeply loved by the Father and how that reshapes our lives. When we reset our identity as beloved children of an awesome Father, we are no longer defined by our failures or brokenness. We no longer have to put on ill-fitting human systems, which will seem more like the old paint-by-number sets instead of learning the art of living in the world with freedom and grace. They also talk about how that transition reshapes community, both in creating safe places for people to struggle, and also not subverting community by our need for the wrong kind of attention. They also discuss the problems of insider language, or theological jargon, which actually restricts our ability to communicate, rather than enhance it.
