Podcast 69: Behind the Scenes of FOT Planning with Mr. Rod McNair!

Before we all sing that first hymn on opening night of this year’s Feast of Tabernacles, it’s helpful to know that a lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to make that night—and the eight days that follow—possible for all of us. Join us today as we chat with Mr. Rod McNair, Assistant Director of Church Administration, and get the scoop on what it takes to make our Feast observances happen—and hopefully get inspired to pitch in yourself!

[Also, this episode refers to a recent LCN article by Mr. Gerald Weston titled “How Does God Place His Name?” Very fitting reading before the FOT. Check it out at the link.]

Podcast 68: Feast of Tabernacles Memories

A pleasantly laid-back podcast this week, as we pause to reflect on favorite memories of Feasts of Tabernacles past and encourage you to plan on making wonderful memories yourself this coming Feast.

LYP Adventure Camp 2023

In the last week of June 2023, fifteen campers and seven staff hiked in the Olympic National Park in Washington. They hiked the North Coast Trail for four days and three nights, enjoying spectacular views of sea stacks and rockfaces while navigating the challenging beaches. It was a wonderful experience by all accounts, and we hope you enjoy these pictures from their journey!

Podcast 67: Is the Door Closed?

A common refrain from some who once knew better is that the “door” to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God is now closed until Jesus Christ’s return and that we should focus on “preparing the bride.” But is this true? It’s not. In fact, seeking to reach the world with God’s truth is essential to the health of the Body of Christ—including its growth as Christ’s bride. On today’s program, we talk about why. Because that door is very much still open!

We mention two Living Church News articles in this episode. Here are links to both.

Living Ed Video! Looking Back on 2022–2023

I just saw this was online and realized many of you may have never seen it. So, as the Living Ed school year begins anew here in Charlotte this week, we thought it would be good to highlight this video featuring last year’s class—that is, the class of 2023—and illustrating a little about life at LE! This year’s group, the class of 2024, is the largest yet at 22. Looking forward to what the next nine months has in store for them.

Podcast 66: Reject Fake “Tate” Masculinity (Part 2)

In this week’s episode, we conclude our discussion of God’s design of men and masculinity, contrasting it against the fake masculinity on offer from too many hucksters out there.

Also, we mention three other resources on the podcast. Here they are!
