In referring to Elijah of the Old Testament, James makes the observation that the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. But I wonder. Even when we find our righteousness in the healing of Christ opposed to our own merit, are our prayers really powerful? Are they truly heard by the God of all creation? Tune in Sunday night at 8p Central as our special guest, Rick Stedman, believes so. Rick founded and for two decades led Adventure Christian Church in Roseville, California. His real desire is getting people connected to God and borrowing from Eugene Peterson, Rick has suggested that the number one job of pastors is to teach their people to pray. Would you agree with that? What other questions about prayer or living out the loving Kingdom of God would you have for Rick? Feel free to send in questions early and join us for the live discussion Sunday night. We will also be giving away a copy of Rick’s new book, Praying the Armor of God. Questions and comments can be taken during the webcast via our SND Google + page or here.

What is God doing in our day around the world? Most of my kingdom work is centered in an American cultural context. But what is God doing beyond the box of Western and American thinking about Christianity? Join us this Sunday at 8p Central as we welcome Dr. Chris DeWelt to the show. We will be looking at God and global Christianity. Chris comes to the discussion with the experience of having lived in the cultural context of Chile for 8 years and has served in close to 80 other countries and cultures. Presently Chris serves as Director and Professor of Intercultural Studies at Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Mo.
What is God up to around the world? What does authentic Christianity look like in other countries and cultures around the globe? What is it about authentic Christianity that transcends culture? How can we be involved in God’s work no matter where we are on the earth? Those and many other questions will be part of the discussion Sunday night. Don’t miss this exciting internationally charged live webcast. You are welcome to send in questions ahead of time or you can participate live through our SND Google + page, our SND Face Book page, or through the comment section here. So be sure to plan ahead and grab a friend and we’ll see you tomorrow night.

“You are the salt of the earth and the light of the world.” Those words were spoken by Jesus Christ 2000 years ago. When I think of the enormity of that statement, Church Planter and Pastor, Ken Hasekamp, is one of the guys who always comes to mind. If anyone knows experientially about influencing people with the love of Christ, it’s Ken. Patterson, CA is where we find Ken these days and it’s amazing to see the stories of how God is working through his life to love his community and make an eternal difference. Join us this evening as we dive into the question of “how to be the light of Christ in our 21st century communities.”
The Discussions begin tonight at 8p Central and you can find us here or on Google +. Feel free to join in on the conversation with your questions and comments. Looking forward to hearing from you this evening.
