Beyond The Pale

Beyond the Pale is a subversively thoughtful exploration of God, faith, life and culture hosted by former pastors and missionaries Steve & Tammy Hackman. It's a podcast for that person who finds more fulfilment in the journey than in the destination and doesn't mind coloring outside the lines a bit! Join us each week as we travel on pilgrimage together. We'll ask questions, question answers, and open a bottle of wine with you as we do. (Not a particularly good wine mind you, just one Tammy says we can afford)

Sceptic David Young, who has been a friend to this podcast and frequent guest, tragically passed away this past April after a months long battle with ALS.  Steve had the opportunity for a final conversation with David at his home, sitting on his balcony, covering a range of topics including politics, movies, living life with a terminal illness, and why he refuses to give potential employers his CV.  Journey with us as we pilgrimage Beyond the Pale one last time with David Young.  Enjoy!

For many Americans, nationalism and patriotism are as much a part of their Christianity as any teaching of Christ.  But does God see America as "exceptional" in the same way Americans do?  Which flag do we really fly higher?  When does our allegiance to earthly countries put us at odds with God's Country.  Former pastor Giles Parker explores these questions with Steve & Tammy on this weeks episode.

Giles Parker returns to the show to help us wrestle with the tension of reconciling belief with experiences.  What happens when they don't line up?  Have we replaced critical thinking with learning to handle and dismiss the ideas we don't want to entertain?  Join us with Giles as we head out Beyond the Pale.

Allen Ries, Allen discusses the idea of Biblical inerrancy and how Christians may be better equipped viewing the Bible through a more progressive lens.  Along the way Allen shares how he has replaced "knowing" with "seeking" and how we would all be better off learning to view others through the eyes of God
