We all need a witness to the particularities of our story, someone who takes in and holds everything from banal trivialities to what is so horrendous it can barely be seen, let alone spoken. Even truer, however, is that we are a proxy witness for the One who reminds us that our life is seen and held by a great cloud of witnesses.

It was Ezra, one of the heroes of our faith, who reminded us, “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him” (2 Chronicles 16:9).
For almost a decade, the Spirit has fueled the Become Good Soil podcast, reaching the many to find and strengthen the few. Though the world has changed a great deal since we launched, the mission has remained the same: supporting men and their families as they respond to our Father’s creative and relentless invitation to a path and process of masculine initiation.
To mark this sacred milestone of 100 episodes, it is my deep joy to celebrate your stories! I asked, and from around the globe you responded with story after story of God working through the Become Good Soil podcast to fuel your journey. It is my deep hope that this chorus of stories will strengthen each of our souls and grant us fresh revelation of what our Father might be pursuing for us, in us, and through us as we trek this narrow road together that leads to life.
The human race is in trouble. Yet as one man at a time experiences the restoration, integration, and maturing of his heart, our world can be healed and we can participate together in the greatest story ever written.
Dive in with me as we savor the stories of like-hearted men consenting to the path and process of becoming.
For the Kingdom,
