Who Shapes Your Spirituality

Podcast_Art2Welcome to the weekly podcast of “MY Brother’s Keeper,” inciting a conspiracy of kindness and good deeds. This podcast is your weekly 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”

Key Thought:  “The late Michael Spencer, in his book Mere Churchianity observed that ‘Most of us have a spirituality which has been formed by the lukewarm church of Laodicea, rather than the bold counter-cultural church of Smyrna.’  And that raises a question: Who Shapes Your Spirituality? Is it Jesus, or is it something else?”

On this week’s radio program and podcast I share thoughts from Chapter 3 of my  book The Least of These: The Role of Good Deeds In A Jesus Shaped Spirituality (see it in the right hand menu of this page) concerning what it means – as Christians and “disciples of the Kingdom” – to walk in a Jesus-shaped spirituality. This is a spirituality which looks like Jesus and reflects the values of the Kingdom of God, particularly as it relates to the importance of “good deeds.” I hope you’ll take the time to join me!

Next Week’s Program

On next week’s program (Sunday, November 2) we will begin a NEW :30 minute (that would be half-an-hour for the rest of you) format. The theme will be how ordinary people starting extra-ordinary ministries. The program/podcast is entitled “Meet Me Under The Bridge.”  I’ll interview Mike and Jessica Kovac, founders of Blessings Under The Bridge in Spokane.
