Big_Picture_Thumbnail_Big

[display_podcast] Welcome to the Big Picture Podcast. I’m Joel Fieri and this podcast seeks to begin and hopefully sustain a conversation about current trends, ideas and issues in the Church and greater society. Today I wanted to follow up on my podcast from a couple weeks ago with the Backrow Baptist, the guy in the back pew who can’t quiet keep the rhythm or sing on-key. You’ve seen him, and he’s seen you. On that podcast we were talking about how to respond to our rapidly secularizing cultur … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] Many times, local pastors accompany teams overseas on their missions trips, but the truth is that often these pastors don’t have much experience ministering in other countries in foreign cultures. It’s particularly in these experiences where we see these “advisory pastors” discover God’s hand in their lives like never before and in unexpected ways. One such trip took pace in Silchar Assam, India with Pastor Norlyn Kent:This was absolutely the most exciting time in my life. … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] John, a pastor from the San Diego area, returned from his trip to Manipur, India and came back with one story after another of modern-day occurrences of situations we read about in the Gospels and Acts:You know how Luke writes in general that “a bunch of people got healed in this town, or that town…” He often didn’t record all the specific healings because there were just too many of them to count. That’s what it was like for us in Manipur! Even when I tried to journal them … [Read more...]

I want to focus on an interesting question that seems to me very relevant for today, and the question is: “who’s in charge of Doomsday?” You might think that’s an odd question, but bear with me. For all of my childhood years and really for most of the second half of the 20th century, it was widely believed the world would end in a holocaust of thermonuclear war. To give you an example from my world, I grew up in a house with a bomb shelter. My father actually made a living for a while building t … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] Bryan was only 12-years-old when God put it on his heart to go to India and Bangladesh… all by himself, without his parents!  Here’s his story:I actually got sick for a few days, so I had to stay in the hotel and rest while the rest of the team went out to the nearby villages to spread God’s word.  While I was sick, I spent a lot of time praying for each person on our team as they were out sharing.  We’d write down each person’s name and then go through the Bible, praying f … [Read more...]
