“Update on Hurricane Laura” Calvary Global Network
“Calvary Disaster Relief is sending a team out to meet with Mercy Chefs. Both ministers are currently in need of resources and financial assistance. Please be in prayer and if you or your church can help financially or happens to have access to a portable water truck, either would be a huge blessing right now.”

“Sojourner Truth: Women Worth Knowing”Gracious Words
“Sojourner Truth (1797?-1883): Join us today for the incredible story of one of America’s most well-known 19th century abolitionist figures, a former slave named Sojourner Truth.”

“If You’re Fighting the Culture War, You’re Losing”The Gospel Coalition
“The problem with the culture-war approach is not that it (rightly) discerns opposition from the world. The problem is in the chosen mode of response. By embracing the culture-war paradigm, many Christians adopt—likely inadvertently—an ‘all’s fair in love and war’ perspective. After all, in a war you don’t turn the other cheek; you strike back as hard, or harder, than your opponent. That’s how wars are won.”

“The Awakening of 1727 Onward: J. Edwin Orr on the History of Revival”David Guzik
“This is the thrilling story of the First Great Awakening – Whitfield, Wesley, and more in America and Great Britain. One in a series of 10 in the comprehensive series was presented at the Church on the Way in Van Nuys, California in 1981.”

“Race and the Gospel”RightNow Media
“The doubt and frustration surrounding current conversations about race and ethnicity provoke questions like, “Why do we keep bringing racism up?” “Isn’t race just a social construct?” and “Isn’t there just one race—the human race?” However, our nation has come to a turning point where many Christians can no longer ignore racial tensions or use simplistic responses to deflect from the complexity of our country’s racial problem. As those who follow Jesus, Christians have the unique opportunity to enter into—rather than shy away from—conversations about race and reconciliation in light of the hope of the gospel.”

“Prof. John Lennox Leads Us in a Journey Through the Wondrous Story of Scripture”Keith and Kristyn Getty
“In this segment John Lennox, Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University and internationally renowned speaker on the interface of science, philosophy, and religion, leads us in a journey through the whole wondrous story of Scripture. Come join us as we stand in awe of the Word of God.”

“People Time + Paper Time – David Downs”Expositors Collective
“In episode 123 David Downs speaks with Mike about clarity and precision in the pulpit, as well as the importance of ‘people time’ and ‘paper time’ in sermon preparation.”

“A Rush of Hope”Harvest Christian Fellowship
“September 4–7, join us for a cinematic experience unlike any other. Featuring powerful films, captivating musical performances, and answers to life’s biggest questions, this is ‘A Rush of Hope.’”
