Joel Virgo (Paradoxical Preacher of Grace)


In this episode, Noel picks up a conversation he started with his friend Joel Virgo in an English pub a couple months ago. They talk about how the fear of God and the enjoyment of Him as Father go hand in hand, how God is never more awesome than he is in his mercy, and how our freedom in Christ can sometimes make us beat ourselves up when we inevitably sin.

Emma Heikkinen (Sparkly Shepherd of Teenage Girls)


Noel sits down with the sparkly female version of himself, his 21 year old daughter Emma. Emma is a children’s curriculum writer, a professional writing major about to graduate from Michigan State University (anyone hiring?), and a lover of kids (especially middle school girls). Noel and Emma talk about how middle school sucks for everyone, law and gospel in parenting, and the crazy and beautiful example of the gospel shown by teenage girls who show their parents grace (yeah, you read that right).
