Amanda and A. J.
Want to make your commute pass a little faster? Listen to LIVING IN EXILE: a weekly conversation between student minister A. J. Farley and biblical scholar Amanda Hope Haley. We usually discuss Scripture and how God is speaking to the modern Church through it, but sometimes we get way off topic and just have fun. We hope our podcasts will encourage you to read Scripture on your own, form your own opinions, and maybe challenge us from time to time. We know our exegesis isn't always right; we're just doing the best we can to understand what the Spirit has to say to us today. If you consider yourself "in the world but not of the world" and "in the Church but not of the church," then this podcast is for you! Season 1's episodes (powered by Feedburner) discussing Ezra and Nehemiah are available at

Back after These Messages...

Hiking with my David at Mt. Falcon, Colorado
Dear faithful listeners,

You've probably noticed that we are taking a break from recording new podcasts. This year is proving to be one of great change as my husband and I have moved, have lost a dear family member, and are preparing for my book to be released in October. A. J. would agree with me that 2014 is a time of change in his family and career.

We are pleased with Season 1, and we are thankful that we produced a podcast that is basically timeless. Until we are back for Season 2, we encourage you to share our thoughts on Ezra and Nehemiah with your friends and family. They will remain online indefinitely. We would also love to hear any topic ideas you have for our Season 2 conversations. You can leave a comment to this blog post, and you can contact me directly at my personal website.

Hoping you too have a 2014 full of change and growth,
