How and why are the Enneagram and Progressive Christianity having their moment? Pastor Casey Tinnin joins Jeff and Allen for a discussion about personality typing, self-knowledge, emotional intelligence, relationship styles, and more as we dive deep into “heart-centered” types and the Enneagram in general.
Pastor Casey Tinnin, in addition to being an Enneagram guru, is the pastor of Loomis Basin Congregational Church in Loomis California and one of the co-creators of Intersections which is a support group that meets once a month to deconstruct their evangelical past. Casey also created a non-religious LGBT teen group, The Landing Spot, that meets once a month. Casey is passionate about being an example of progressive Christianity in the wake of conservative evangelicalism. “My role as pastor is to empower people to take on the task of following Jesus; to be the hands, feet, and voice of God in the world.”
Also in this episode, Jeff and Allen get personal with Casey in regard to their own numbers and wings. Also find out what numbers and wings mean within the Enneagram framework.
Although many within the Progressive Christianity framework seem to be very familiar with the Enneagram, this conversation might help shed some light as to why that may be.
Finally, for the segment, these three preachers dabble in another round of Jesus Juke. Casey, Jeff and Allen creating sermons out of nowhere using a dry erase erasers, a lens cap, and tardigrades as illustrations.
