THIS IS THE RECALIBRATED PODCAST
WITH MALLORY BROWN
Tyler Staton is the lead pastor of Oaks Church in Brooklyn and author of “Searching for Enough: The High-Wire Walk Between Doubt and Faith,” which released on March 2. His passion is a community that is unexplainable apart from the love and power of God.
In today’s podcast, he talks about the dichotomy of doubt and faith and how waiting on God produces perseverance.
“I think that God is not in a rush to resolve all of our confusion, all of our pain, all of our hardship, all of our angst,” he said. “Because perseverance really does have a work to finish in the human soul, and if God short-circuits that process every time, we miss out on maturity, we miss out on intimacy.”
Staton also offers a theological approach to doubt by studying the life of Thomas in the Bible and how that’s practical to us today.
“Henri Nouwen uses this phrase ‘wounded healers,’ and I think that’s the story of every apostle,” Staton said. “It’s the place that their deepest wound becomes the place of deepest fruitfulness in their life.”
