We take a slight turn from our normal content this week. Instead of talking through ideas from a book, Ben Panter interviews Pastor Mike about the recent high school youth group Winter Weekend. The big idea of the weekend was Story.
Mike shares what his hope was for the weekend, some of the most impactful moments, and of course, a few snow stories.
This week's interview is with Pastor Mark Willey about a book he's been reading called The Patient Ferment of the Early Church. It's a look at beginning centuries of the church and one characteristic that perhaps most set them apart from the rest of the empire shaped culture.
We also discuss tricky college professors and what historical framework pastor Mark views all history through.
You can find this book on Amazon.
Ben Panter interviews the new intern, Dennis Chachko about the book The Man in the Mirror. We talk about the core ideas of the book and highlight some of the 24 problems that men face. Also, we discuss just exactly what an intern at FCC does. As a special bonus, Dennis does his Michal Jackson impression (not really, but it seems like we should be able to make an intern do that, right?)
You can find the book on Amazon.
An interview with Pastor Jim on the book A Wind in the House of Islam by David Garrison. The book presents a historical and contemporary perspective on the growing global movement of Muslims to becoming followers of Jesus.
