Exploring More

Zoweh's Exploring More Podcast is an invitation to conversations committed to sharing our discoveries of the wild and wonderful Kingdom of God… how it works, who we are in it, and the Love and Life that is constantly pursuing us. The Kingdom of God isn’t easy nor is everything in our story good—there are predators and parasites in the spiritual realm, another kingdom, the kingdom of darkness that exists and violently opposes our discovering and becoming more. Exploring More is hosted by Michael Thompson, produced by Zoweh, and recorded in Durham, NC.

They explore the Lord's Prayer in Luke 11 and how it was a powerful teaching tool. In warfare, the two keys to gaining an upper hand are to cut off access (supply) and communication. It is vital that we keep the communication lines open with the Triune Go...

The men of Zoweh delve into debunking prayer. Many words have been associated with prayer - obligation, formality, repetitive, holy... We remember simplistic prayers from our childhood such as "Now I lay me down to sleep." What is the right way to pray anyway? Is there a special formula? In this discussion, the team suggests, "Our perception of God determines our conversation with Him."

In many ways, the third Pillar of Zoweh, Nothing to Hide, Nothing to Prove, and Nothing to Fear is the fruit of the first two Pillars: Intimacy and Orientation. As one becomes better connected to God and oriented, it is easier to let go of the things that aggravate the False Self. Example of the False Self revealing itself are anger, defensiveness, and especially this concept of "holding on." We have the freedom to let go. ...

Do you see me? Do you love what you see? Do you want to be with me? These are some of the core questions that stem from the heart. Jesus desired to been seen, loved, and wanted for who He was and not just what He could do. He wants to have significance in our hearts and love for Him. There's a weightiness and glory associated with significance. You have much more significance in the Kingdom compared to what you may think. Disco...
