[display_podcast]Welcome to the Big Picture Podcast, I’m Joel Fieri and I’m back to hopefully bring come clarity and keep the conversation going about what’s happening today in the Church and greater society. And, I’m not alone this week.

Reflections of Grace 115: What Is It You Have That I Don’t?

[display_podcast] One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of  the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers—Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew—throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living.  Jesus called out  to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!”  And they left their nets at once and followed Him.”  (Matthew 4:18-20)I don’t have the gift of evangelism.  My husband does and he loves it!  I love people and have a shepherd’s heart, but I am not … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 143: The Gentle Shepherd

[display_podcast] Last week, I introduced you ever-so-briefly to the subject of shepherds. This because Jesus drew our attention to all-things sheep-and-shepherd-related when He defined Himself by saying, “I AM the door (gate) of the sheep.” This week, in this PODCAST, we’ll discover together exactly what Jesus meant when He identified Himself as the “door of the sheep.” The important point to remember from last week is this: Life for the shepherd was and is unpredictable and oh-so-diff … [Read more...]

I’m Waiting 9: Walking Hard with Marvin “Merv” Mattair

[display_podcast] This week, we wrap up our conversation with Marvin “Merv” Mattair and learn about his success in sending his message throughout his community.  Whenever any of us talk about sexual risk avoidance in the public square, we are faced with some of the most odd point of opposition.  Merv was able to overcome that hurdle primarily by communicating to his local school principals that he, just like they, are interested in what is best for the kids in their community.  It’s been proven … [Read more...]

Ouxano 100: If You Teach Your Kids to Brush Their Teeth, Teach Them to Follow God

[display_podcast] I often hear well-meaning Christian parents say the following, “I don’t want to force God on my child.  I want them to make their own decisions and create their own relationship with God.” I agree that an overbearing, hypocritical, legalistic way of parenting is just wrong, but let me challenge you with a different perspective: If it’s important to actively train our kids in matters of personal hygiene (brushing their teeth), education (attend and do their best in school), ma … [Read more...]

Ouxano 99: Discipling Your Kids Is YOUR JOB, Not Their Sunday School Teacher’s

[display_podcast] The definition of a disciple is:  one who attends upon another for the purpose of learning from them.  So, basically, a disciple is someone who follows another person with the expressed purpose of learning from them. Jesus specifically chose twelve apostles out of a group of about 120 followers. And then, from those twelve, he chose three – Peter, John and James – to give them even more intimate instruction and leadership. Now, Jesus didn’t have all the distractions that we d … [Read more...]
