The Podechesis Podcast Episode 2: Humanity’s Purpose

Episode 2 Show Notes

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” -Inigo Montoya to Vizzini, The Princess Bride

Do we know what the word purpose means? When we ask, “What is my purpose?” or “Why am I here?” or say things like, “Your purpose in life is…” or “You were put on this earth for this reason.” do we know what we are really talking about? Perhaps the meaning of purpose is not what we think it is. Maybe our understanding of purpose is too complicated and too small.

In the second episode of The Podechesis Podcast Allen, Jim, and Brett have an important conversation about the first question in Wesley’s Revision of the Westminister Shorter Catechism, “What is the chief end of man?” They discuss the meaning of purpose, what it means to glorify God and to enjoy him, and they share their hearts in discussing why it matters that we understand what it is God designed us to do.

Along the way, you will hear which cereal is the best, Jim try to convince Brett and Allen to try kale smoothies (not happening!), and Allen and Jim break into song ever so briefly.
