    Resurrection Encounters with Jesus

    Resurrection Encounters with Jesus

    At the moment of Jesus' death the curtain in the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. What does the tearing of the temple mean? How many days did Jesus appear to people after the resurrection? How many people saw him at one time after the resurrection? We often spend a lot of time during Lent and Easter learning about the suffering and death of Christ but how much do we know about what he did after he rose bodily from the dead? Today we’ll talk about resurrection encounters with Jesus. My guest is Rev. Brandon Larson with Concordia Lutheran Church in Kirkwood, Missouri.

    Beginning a Bible Study for Prodigal Parents

    Beginning a Bible Study for Prodigal Parents

    Why do parents of prodigals experience heartache and pain when their child either stops attending church or leaves the faith? How can a church begin a small group for parents of prodigals? What do you do as you begin your group? What topics do you cover? Today my guest on Family Shield are Dawn and Scott Mueller. They began a small group after one of their children informed them she was no longer interested in attending church or having faith in Christ. This is Kay Meyer, president of Family Shield Ministries and your host for today's program.

    Jews for Jesus – Part 2

    Jews for Jesus – Part 2

    Hello and welcome to Family Shield Ministries. We are on mission to help families walk together and with each other, and of course to walk with God. I’m Pastor Mark Femmel, part of the Family Shield Ministries crew, and I am blessed to share the microphone, usually blessed by Kay Meyer. Today we have once again, a special guest David Brickner, who is the Executive Director of a pretty wonderful ministry, especially if you were listening last time, of all the wonderful doors that God is opening through the Old Testament. Executive Director of Jews for Jesus, which is an International Ministry out of San Francisco. So this episode is a promise kept, last time we were with David Brickner, and he and I were talking about all the overlap, all the distinctions, and also just how to share the Faith with your Jewish neighbor, doctor, lawyer, cousin, friend, teacher, student, and it was a great conversation in my opinion. We talked about the cultural uniqueness and layers and history of Judaism. We also talked about what that word in your New Testament, Christ, and that Old Testament word, Messiah, what that actually means.

    Avoiding a Family Shipwreck

    Avoiding a Family Shipwreck

    Hello Family Shield Ministries Network. We have a very precious opportunity to have a conversation once again with the incredible Rev. Dr. Gary Chapman. That's one of those names that if you're a minister, you know exactly who it is. If you're not in ministry, if you're not a major churchgoer or book reader, I guarantee you people have been using his stuff on you since 1992 with The Five Love Languages. And this has been a legendary book, and it's early in your ministry, early in your career, Dr. Chapman. But that is not the only pony that you have put on the field. You have just come out with an incredibly awesome book that is just even more practical in my opinion, than The Five Love Languages. Called Five Traits of a Healthy Family:  Steps You Can Take to Grow Closer, Communicate Better, and Change the World Together. So this is another conversation, and I'm excited about where this is going to go. We're going to review the book, not as a replacement of the book, but just to showcase how awesome this book is. And then I've got a couple of questions that I really wanted to share with you that in my opinion, nobody else is asking you. So I want to make this as practical as possible because there's a lot of theoretical books and I appreciate how you write. My goal today is to help people avoid a shipwreck. I'm not a sailor, but I've seen a lot of movies about sailing and I talked to a lot of people in the Navy. There are a few ways to sail a ship right. And there are a lot of ways to sail a ship wrong. So Rev. Dr. Gary Chapman, thank you for being on our show today.

Insightful podcast!

Host Kay does a great job asking insightful questions that really make the listener tune in to what she and her guest are discussing. I have listened to several of the episodes on discipling to Mormons and found it very interesting. She does a great job of having a graceful and mindful take on how to approach this topic. It’s an all around great listen!
