SERMON – How to be Missional Every Day by Tope Koleoso

I recently posted what I trust will be a series which will be about sermons that have changed my life. It is way too early for me to claim that this past Sunday's talk by my pastor and dear friend, Tope Koleoso, will be one of those.

As far as I'm aware, this is the first Christian iChat interview recorded and then shared online. If anyone knows of someone who has … [Read more...]

Earlier today I interviewed Hugh Palmer. Tonight, in typical wry self-depreciating humor, he began his talk by saying that we would be moving from the American passion we saw demonstrated last night, to the British understatement we could expect to experience now.He began by telling us that we don't tell people the gospel for one of two reasons—either because we don't believe the gospel or because we don't love them.
