TRUCE PODCAST

how we got here and how we can do better.

What Is Truce?

Truce uses journalistic tools to look inside the Christian church to explore how we got here and how we can do better. Context is key. Many of us are troubled by what they see in the news and how Christianity is portrayed in the public square. Without context, these events seem like random attacks against an innocent church. Truce helps us take a step back and examine ourselves and our history. To apologize, to correct, to satisfy our curiosity, and to stand firm in Christ.

Our goal is a humble, informed church. An “ask not what society can do for church, but what the church can do for society” approach. We believe that the church does best when it is in servant mode and not seeking to rule the world.

We strive to provide high-quality, well-researched, informative, and engaging podcasts to equip Christians and attract those who do not yet believe.

About The Host

Chris Staron is the award-winning filmmaker behind Bringing up Bobby and Between the Walls. He’s also the author of the dramatic Christian thriller Cradle Robber. His heart is for people who are on the outside edges of popular Christianity: the under-represented, the skeptics, those hurt by the church. Truce is a vehicle to express the unmet needs of the outsiders. When he’s not juggling multiple episodes at the same time, Chris enjoys hiking, cross country skiing, improv comedy, and teaching Sunday school.  

Check out Chris’ book Cradle Robber and movie Bringing Up Bobby on Amazon.

From the blog

What is multi-level marketing? It turns out, it is a very popular business model that targets Christians and other people of faith. But… it is almost guaranteed to fail. Because MLM’s and direct sales companies are not designed to sell a product but to sell the business itself.

Joining us for this episode is Robert Fitzpatrick. He’s the president of Pyramid Scheme Alert and the author of the new book “Ponzinomics: The Untold History of Multi-Level Marketing and How Direct Sales Became an American Swindle”.

This week we talk with Mark Galli, editor in chief of Christianity Today about leadership. Are we all called to lead or are just some of us? Does that mean we don’t have to lead if we’re not gifted in that way?

“I have to say that I didn’t think I would get into this podcast as I tend to classify myself somewhere in the agnostic/atheist realm… but I really enjoyed the insights.”
