I want to share a message with you that puts some perspective on the meaning of Easter … at least for me.
So click on the little player button, and sit back to listen to “Sick to Death” from Abundant Gifts … it’s only 4 minutes, 5 seconds long.
(And I would love to hear your response, and any reflection you’d like to share about what God has been showing you … just click the Comment button to share your thoughts.)
If you did not get to listen to the Virtual Book Tour with Frank Viola and George Barna, in which we discussed their book, Pagan Christianity? Exploring the Roots of Our Church Practices, you may listen to the replay here.
We received more than 600 questions, and people called in from all over the world!
If you want to ask a question, you may still do so at www.askfrankandgeorge.com. Frank will continue to answer questions on his web site, so if you ask a question, visit www.paganchristianity.net regularly to see answers to questions. And if you ask a question, you will still get to listen to the replay.
I think when you hear the passion in these men’s voices, it will be clear that their intent is the revitalization of the church of Jesus Christ.
This book has changed the way I experience my own church service. Honestly, it’s a book to grapple with. In fact, as I said in the interview, I firmly believe you need to read this WITH other people in your church. So get more than one copy. If possible, get a group from your church to read it together. There’s a study guide available, as well as another bonus you’ll find out about when you check out the replay.
May you be blessed with new insights into God’s grace as you contemplate the events of Holy Week.
I’m going to be doing a Virtual Book Tour on a rather controversial subject and I thought you might be interested in knowing about it.
The book is Pagan Christianity? Exploring the Roots of Our Church Practices by Frank Viola and George Barna.
The book’s thesis is that many of our common church actually have their roots in pagan practices rather than biblical principles.
If this thought sparks a question for you, you can ask it now at www.askfrankandgeorge.com. We already have nearly 500 questions. It promises to be an interesting interview!
The call is on Tuesday, March 18 at 7 p.m. Central, and there will be a replay. Sign up and get all the details.
