Burn the Haystack has quickly risen to prominence in the Adventist podcasting world (now that is a thing). We met them at the Digital Discipleship conference and knew we wanted to have them on the show. It took us some time but we finally have the episode to share with you!

When Kaleb Eisele made a post on Facebook about the head elder of his church, who was also his step-dad and the impact he had on not only Kaleb, but the church as well, I knew i wanted to interview him.
Tim Baumgarten is a corporate trainer by profession but he has made a profound impact on his local church. He is a humble guy so he won’t tell you that without some investigation but I wanted to distill as many lessons as I could for you to apply in your local churches.
This interview covers a few main areas
– Tim’s Personal Story
– Intergenerational communication
– How His church revived
Australia holds a melting pot of cultures so our national holiday is not as simple as it is in most countries, but ultimately it is a celebration of culture which most countries can relate to.
The question is, how do we think about the celebration of cultures from a christian perspective?
and what do we do when some of those celebratory activities go against our convictions?
We talk about that.
For our NON-AUSTRALIAN listeners, we have included a ice-breaker conversation at the beginning, along with a translator to help you out.
WARNING: you may spit your decaf everywhere while listening.
This is also the third of our intermittent series called “Christianity Vs. Culture” where we examine our cultural events and practices in light of our faith.
This is the long awaited return of our deeper, long-form episodes focussed on the 28 Fundamental teachings of the Bible.
In this episode we are dealing with #14 Unity in the Body of Christ. If the first part is not that relatable for you, skip to the last half where we deal with the application.
It would be tough to think of a holiday more ingrained in our culture than Christmas, but with so many conflicting ideas on whether we should celebrate it or not, how can we as christians navigate the discussion without falling to extremes?
Hopefully you will find this conversation refreshing, challenging and at times even a little funny.

What are we doing?
We are just five guys from a regional town in Australia, with everyday jobs, everyday lives with one big thing in common. We love Jesus.
Inspired by the guys over at Lightbearers we decided to simply sit around a table and record the spiritual conversations we were already having in the hope that they would encourage others to do the same.
We have three main episode formats,
- Long-form Bible study (Focussing on the 28 Fundamentals)
- Interviews with notable Adventists
- Short-form 20 minute discussions.
