It’s time for week three of our video podcast experiment called The Filter. We tried as hard as we could to keep it under 30 minutes and managed to cut the time to just 47 and a half minutes. Actually, we are just having too much fun. We’re talking about what has happened in the last week of ministry that caught our attention. For example… did you know that Kenneth Copeland actually had a hand in the fall of the Berlin Wall? Or that a pastor went to jail for stealing a sheep (literally)? We also talk about caffeine; National Pornographic magazine, super-sized communion cups, online interpretation of tongues, a movement that’s planted 7000 churches in the past decade, two megachurches that are merging, a threat to the pastor’s housing allowance; senior pastor salaries, sushi, and (not to mention), Euphemisms for sex from the 1800s. Yes, it was a packed show… I hope you’ll take a watch. I think you might enjoy:
