Joey is a Pastor at Seacoast Church, the last 13 years at the James Island location, much of that time getting to know Jonathan Peace, our drummer. After years of being embedded into the church community and developing many friendships including with Joey, “Peace” finally tells the story of his first “gig” at Seacoast on a Sunday morning after a full night of booze and smoking cigarettes, tips dipped in cocaine. He had a “magical experience” playing his first worship service at his new church home (to say the least).
Co-host Jed Payne (with plenty of past drug use himself), Joey and Jonathan discuss different angles of drug-use from a moral perspective and explore lots of theological speculation about God and the afterlife.
Jonathan's view of God is greatly informed by a time at the beach when God's hand pressed and held him to the ground, speaking through his heart and body for hours. He's can't unsee what he saw about the spiritual realm that night [and if we're comparing], giving him a much more “progressive theology,” at least in the technical sense.

The reason why you'll rarely see modern Christians on the political Left or Right have constructive conversations around politics or social issues – despite claiming a shared faith, tradition, and epistemology – is that we are already so comprehensively formed by our ideological narratives and so woefully underformed or selectively formed by our theological narratives, and it is narrative more than anything else that gives individuals the lenses by which we see the world. This means then we can only be genuinely surprised, and often outraged, that this “other” kind of Christian has the gall to even exist. If life is a story, they are like poorly-written characters inserted to disrupt the satisfying plot of our existing narrative, and we resent them for ruining our story. — Rev. Colin Kerr
