More of a great thing is a great thing
Love it! This is a great way to hear more about the important subjects that the morning show does not have time to dig into. Great use of tech and I like the way Moody is continuing to morph as our method of reaching out changes.
Keep challenging the conventional among us.
From the Newspaper to the Word
Brian and Kathleen offer a fresh look at the events happen all around the world and address them from a Christian perspective. They are not afraid to ask hard questions, and come to unique solutions. This podcast does not float on the surface of happy-clappy Christianity. You will be challenged to love the world better and serve the Lord more.
Representing Christ on Social Media
A good reminder for us all, plus a basic lesson for those who plow ahead without thinking about the ramifications of their social media behavior.
