What if Hope is Across the Street?
This episode was originally recorded at Immanuel Bible Church in Springfield Virginia.
Jim Traficant, Frank Finelli, and Jeremy Traficant share how God moved powerfully in the midst of multiple urgent health crises, weaving their stories together in ways that can only be called miraculous.
"I've been to the brink of death three times and I want to tell you what I've learned:1. We can't do it ourselves.2. When all else is gone, Jesus is enough.3. Christ's death and resurrection were for you and me. No matter what we've done, no matter what's been done to us, no matter how far we might drift, we're just one step away. We're never beyond His grace....Sometimes you have to wonder if what's happening to you is really happening for you, no matter how it feels."

Live Your Truth and Other Lies with Alisa Childers
Alisa Childers began re-examining her faith after a jarring experience in an unexpected place left her questioning what she believed, and why. In this episode, she talks with Michael about rebuilding her faith intellectually through studying apologetics and hermeneutics.
Alisa's newest book, "Live Your Truth and Other Lies," exposes five damaging lies that permeate our culture, both inside and outside the church. These lies generally feel good to hear, but ultimately leave us "anxious, exhausted, and self-obsessed."

In My Father's Wake with Dave Gibson
Glad to have my dear friend Dr. Dave Gibson back on inContext today to talk about his new book, In My Father's Wake: How an Anxious Boy Learned to Love a Difficult Dad.
Hardwon wisdom shrouded in humor, Dave's storytelling offers belonging, comfort, and a gentle challenge to any (many) of us who bear a father wound.
Making Disciples that Make Disciples with Dr. Dann Spader
Dr. Dann Spader is back on inContext with a deep well of wisdom and practical encouragement for making disciples.
A disciple is someone who follows Christ, is being changed by Christ, and is committed to the mission of Christ.A disciple-maker is someone who helps others follow Christ, helps others be changed by Christ, and helps others commit to the mission of Christ.When you fall in love with Jesus, you want to do what He told you to do. What's that? Go make disciples.It's not about a strategy, program, class, or curriculum. It's about imparting Jesus—the real Jesus—to people on the face of the earth.
Healthy Discipleship with Dr. Michael Lawson
Dr. Michael Lawson joins Michael to discuss discipleship, common barriers preventing healthy discipleship today, and how to foster communities where discipleship can thrive.

Great interview on CRT, very informative! Your ministry is a blessing to me!
I am a believer. I first saw Dr. Easley with Joni Eareckson Tada as guests on The John Ankerburg Show a few years ago. They shared their incredible journeys through
pain & suffering.
The Lord used them to really open my eyes to how to walk through “pain & suffering”, how to keep doing “the next right thing”, “don’t compare your pain- it’s not a competition”, how to keep seeking God & to keep reading, memorizing & studying His Word, to always remember “nothing can separate us from the Love of God”….& on & on……God has given me His Infinite Strength, Love, Comfort…..Everything…….I have ever needed, because of Who He is & because He used, & continues to use, these faithful children of His.
I am a nurse. The last several years I’ve taken care of my mom-in-law, my mom & now my husband. Thank you for the various “venues” you use to teach His Word to the rest of us. I’ve been “drinking from a fire hydrant” & I’m still so very thirsty. Please never give up Dr. Easley. We all desperately need the Lord.
Grateful for this podcast
Michael Easley was my pastor when he and Cindy were at Immanuel Bible Church in Springfield, VA. His teaching and interview style are very clear and always interesting. Each podcast is full of information and insight while bringing a bit of humor and much food for thought.
