The Family International Podcasts ROCK!

I’m loving the podcasts that this team has been putting together regularly. Sometimes you just want a little variety in your devotions or a short pick-me-up and there’s lots of great material at The Family International Podcasts. (You don’t need an iPod to listen to them, there’s a host of ways to subscribe.)

The BiblePod is just like what my dad used to do when I was a kid, he’d read us a Psalm each day in the morning and I’m thinking of playing these for my kids when they wake up in the morning to help them start their day.

If you were to string together the Daily Praise with the Daily Might and From Jesus With Love and top it off with Connection through Meditation that’d make between 10-15 minutes of variety.

And hey, that’s not to mention all the great Activated material on there too. I just haven’t gotten around to listening to those yet. I’ll bet you could put together a great playlist for the day. But what are you listening to me for? I’m sold, but the site sells itself, check it out: http://podcasts.thefamily.org

Getting some peace of mind in changing times

Most of us are thinking about our futures right now, it’s almost as though with “The Change Journey” the ceiling and all consecutive ceiling’s have been ripped off my personal skyscraper and I’m looking up from ground floor at all the possibilities, it’s dizzying, frustrating, scary, and exhilarating all at the same time.

Feeling this way made Simon Wilson’s article: “NL-2009-7-Exit, Novi Sad, Serbia” stick in my head.

I see that no matter what these changes bring in our mission center & even the Family International as an organization, the fundamentals of our job & our faith will never change. No matter how much our methods change the message will always essentially be the same. It’s amazing to me that in 2000 years the message of Jesus is just as relevant to the world as it ever was.

That’s just so real to me. It’s amazing to go back and re-read Jesus’ words that have been around for over 2000 years and find them “just as relevant”. His post rocks, so head on over and check it out along with the slideshow of snapshots from the festival.

ROCK ON team!
