About This Episode
In this episode, Jay and Isaac chat with Steve Patton. Steve is a pastor, writer/speaker, and church planter. He serves on the leadership team of the ReGeneration Project and is currently leading a brand new church plant in Seattle called Reunion. We chat with Steve about what to do with the tension of the Bible seemingly condoning and even encouraging slavery. We discuss Steve’s personal and theological journey regarding the tension and how that’s led him to where he is today, helping to plant a church in Seattle, whose vision statement states, “We imagine a table, and even a city, where all races, genders, generations, socio-economic statuses, and cultures are gathered as one.”
