Wagons, Ho!

Taking a trip across the wide prairie in this episode. Dan reads a summary of the book, Western Theology, written and illustrated by Wes Seeliger, an Episcopal priest who passed away a number of years ago. The book is actually a satirical look at the church as seen in the context of the Old West. The author compares two kinds of Christians, the Pioneers and the Settlers. Dan, adopting the persona of an old cowboy reads a summary of Seeliger’s book from yet another book, Lion and Lamb, the Relentless Tenderness of Jesus, by Brennan Manning.

Will House Churches Come to Croatia?

Today’s guest is Sinisa Hamp, a former pastor from Croatia presently studying in Calgary. This interview examines the landscape of the church in this predominantly Catholic country. The question that emerges from this conversation is whether there is a nascent house church movement in Croatia? Are the youth of the country beginning to seek a church of a different kind? Are Croatians open to a new kind of church?

The Jesus Circle

The Summit Fellowships occasionally do something called The Jesus Circle. It’s a story-telling activity where we practice telling the story of Jesus as though we were sitting around the campfire remembering a friend or an event. In this episode Dan talks about how we do this when a fellowship gathers. A written description of the Jesus Circle is also available at the resources menu of the summithome.org website. We’d love to hear about your experiences with the Jesus Circle. Let us know!
