Evangelism Now & Post-Pandemic w/ Rico Tice
Evangelism is always difficult but the pandemic of the last year has made it feel considerably harder. It need not be so! Questions people are asking are changing and a hunger for "something more" is growing! In this episode of The Intersection Rico Tice, Senior Ministry of All Souls Church & Founder of Christianity Explored, joins Pastors Eric Targe and Justin May in a conversation on how to be a faithful witness to Jesus now and post-pandemic.
Welcoming The Foreigner w/ Matthew Soerens
And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt (Deut. 10:19). When God's people come across immigrants and refugees they are not left without instruction from God on how to behave; they are told to love.
Join Pastors Eric & Justin as they speak with Matthew Soerens, U.S. director of church mobilization for World Relief and coauthor of Welcoming the Stranger, as they continue The Intersection's fall series: Life & Breath.
Finding Courage To Stand w/ Dr. Russell Moore
Often advocacy requires courage as systems and structures that exclude and oppress can be intimidating. We fear we might lose our belonging in whatever tribe in which we seek safety, we fear standing alone.
In Dr. Russell Moore's new book, The Courage To Stand, he challenges readers, from the life of Elijah, to reject cowardice and embrace gospel courage, not the bravado of our very anxious times, but the gospel courage that calls us to be crucified. Join us for this conversation with him.
How to Love the Homeless w/ Pastor Larry McCarthy
There are three main groups that we are talking about when we talk about homelessness; the homeless, the houseless, and the unsheltered. How do we care for each of these groups, as intervention could curb human trafficking, crime, substance abuse, and so much more. No wonder the Lord is regularly rebuking His people for not caring for those who are in great financial need.
