New for Radio this Father's Day

Kyle-Idleman-AHA-Fathers-Day

I remember the first time my sister Chloe threatened to run away from home (yes, she did that a lot as a child).  She was five.  And she was ready to be on her own.  With a small sack of her most sacred belongings, she confidently marched out the front door and down the driveway.

Seven steps into her expedition, she looked back and decided this was not her time for freedom.  As the older sister, my worry was relieved when she bounded back into the safety of our home.

Looking back on moments like these, we chuckle and think ...

#FathersDay

In Scripture the word "father" is found more than 1,100 times.  A father's involvement in the lives of his children is vitally important -- nearly every study conducted in the social sciences confirms what the Bible teaches . . . fathers matter.

I'm thankful to have many memories of my father -- some of which come vividly to mind when I hear certain songs like Nat King Cole's Stardust.

Whenever I hear this old standard, I'm 10 years old and back in the living room of the home I grew up in . . . sitting around the turntable and listening to LPs ...

Being Salt & Light

Bible-revival-outside-the-walls-barry-meguiarMy name is Selah.  It always has been … but recently, I’ve been learning to capitalize on it.  Here’s what I mean.


“Selah” is a term from Psalms that means “stop and meditate on the Lord.”  As a teenager, peers thought it was equally cool and weird to be named after that kind of thing.  As a pastor’s kid with this type of “branded” name, I tried to play down the Psalm reference—you know, so I could fit in.

That’s sad because being named after a biblical term ...

When Will Isn't Enough

Max-LucadoSeveral weeks ago, I fell prey to a nasty cold.  The first four days of the virus, I was in denial.  I went to work and church and ran errands, just like a normal week.

Then, on day #5, I finally admitted to being sick.  But I figured I could "out-will" the virus.  So I got ready for work like a regular Monday and stumbled into the office.  A few colleagues asked if I was feeling OK.  I told them "not really"but I was going to power through the day anyhow.  No need to worry about me!  I even ...

She's 35, Not a Christian, and Listening: Why?

Boundless

On this past weekend's broadcast of "The Boundless Show", host Lisa Anderson read a remarkable letter from a regular listener.  Read it and consider the implications for yourself.  Then ponder this question: What would you hope an unbeliever (or, a "not-yet Christian") would say about the content you produce?

Dear Lisa & the Boundless Team,

I wanted to write you a note of thanks and encouragement from an unexpected listener, I think. 

I'm not a Christian and have no plans to be -- no offense, it's just not my jam.  But I really love your show.

Lisa, you are ...
