The City Podcast: The Body and the Imago Dei

by Timothy Motte on December 22, 2014

After the podcast last week with Dr. Renae Schumann about faith and fitness and her complete bodily transformation, Cate was left with so many more questions that we decided to do a follow-up with just her and Dr. Schumann.

In this episode they talk about how to respect the image of God in your body, food as an idol, comparing ourselves to others, and competing views of body image among the high school and college girls that they work with.

Featuring: Cate MacDonald, Dr. Renae Schumann

The City Podcast Special: Back to Barterra

by Timothy Motte on December 17, 2014

Invasion!

The infamous Hunter Baker (ostensibly identified as our only listener, though you are now disproving that) has taken control of this episode.

He is insisting on talking about Dr. Reynolds’ excursion into fiction writing, namely, Chasing Shadows: Back to Barterra.

Since he’s such a loyal listener, I guess we will let him proceed.

So imagine that the universe has to have a place where all our fictions dwell…

The City Podcast: Faith and Fitness

by Timothy Motte on December 15, 2014

Dr. Renae Schumann saw a picture of herself at her niece’s wedding, and that’s when she hit rock bottom.

Dr. Schumann before and after her transformation

She realized that by not taking care of her body, she had not taken care of the image of God. Her story is one of complete lifestyle and body transformation that has made her into a paragon of fitness.

Dr. Schumann is the dean of Houston Baptist University’s School of Nursing and Allied Health. And it started with a week of intense prayer.

The City Podcast: Hunter Baker Judges You… on Ayn Rand

by Timothy Motte on November 24, 2014

The infamous Hunter Baker enjoyed Atlas Shrugged.

In public.

This poses a problem for John Mark Reynolds, who simultaneously respects Hunter Baker and shuns Ayn Rand. Can Dr. Baker convince Dr. Reynolds to read Rand with Christian charity?
