A Left Behind Church

Podcast_Art3Welcome to the weekly podcast of “My Brother’s Keeper,” inciting a conspiracy of kindness and good deeds. This podcast of our weekly radio program is your opportunity to get informed and to join the conspiracy. We try to make certain that each podcast features information, lessons, insights and interviews concerning such issues as homelessness, hunger, and people in crisis. Our goal goes beyond talking about issues.  We want to combine practical solutions with personal encouragement and offer a challenge to our listeners to get personally involved. While our perspective is that of historic Evangelical Christian faith, and while much of our audience is Christian, the issues we discuss and the solutions we offer go far beyond the walls of any Church or religious organization. We hope you will listen, become part of the conversation, and join our growing conspiracy of kindness and good deeds.

“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can.”  – John Wesley

This Week’s Program Notes

Studio_ShotWelcome to another weekly “Radio Roundtable.” Our Roundtables air on Saturday mornings at 10:00AM on the 5 stations of the American Christian Network.  Find our full program schedule here!   All of our programs are also available as a FREE podcast subscription through  iTunes. This week’s Roundtable features host Maurice Smith and Rick Haffner, Pastor of Open Heart Chapel in Spokane. Together we discuss frequently offered reasons why Christians and Churches should limit their good deeds and service efforts to those within the Church. Maurice and Rick respond to real objections and then suggest that, unless the Church embraces its call to serve the greater community, the Church may find itself “left behind” by our Postmodern culture.

Here’s a link to the NBC News Story on the “Hashtag Lunchbag” movement which Maurice mentioned on the program. 

On Next  Week’s Roundtable

Next week’s roundtable will focus on the issue of Teen Homelessness with a Roundtable of people actively working with homeless teens.
