russell ramirez (aka the rocking chef) is a “culinarian” who works as a chef in austin, texas. he shares with us his journey on how God led him from a “calling to ministry” to being a chef and to a new understanding of what ministry looks like in a missional 24/7 context.
UPDATE: Help Elora and Russell raise funds to bring home their forever child:
this week we talk with Gerry Hanan. Hanan grew up in Ireland where his dad owned a toy shop and he went to the same school as U2. that wasn’t enough adventure for him though so he now lives with his wife and kids in Austin, Texas, where the weather is better. he spends his time shooting fashion and beauty photographs, walking his dog and having adventures in prayer.
it’s that time of year, when all our listeners are invited to join in and help us celebrate the birth of our Savior.
thanks to everyone who joined in with a reading or sharing their Christmas thoughts, reflections and wishes!
we hope you enjoy listening and are able to share it with your family and friends this holiday season.
we look forward to many more great stories and episodes to come in 2010!

this week we continue our chat with Drew Tatusko. he’s a graduate of Pinceton Theological Seminary, where he earned his M.Div. and Th.M. currently he is the program activity director for a Title III grant to integrate technology into teaching, learning, retention and advising at Mount Aloysius College in Cresson, PA.
he currently lives in Duncansville, PA with wife Brenna, sons Alexander and Evan.
this week we talk with singer, songwriter Ben Thomas of the band so elated. the band recently followed up their Christmas album, “the bewildering light” (released last year via NoiseTrade), with a new self-titled album.
Ben talks about the new album and shares with his story with us and how growing up and listening to “decent music” taught him that God can be found in all types of art, and not just in clean, wholesome “Christian music.”
From so elated’s website ::
Influenced by artists such as David Bazan, Wilco, Sufjan Stevens, Iron and Wine, Derek Webb and Bright Eyes, So Elated conjures up music that is both eclectic and unique. Several songs from the new abum have already been chosen for TV/film licensing, including “Strangers”, which was placed on Shatter Records latest compilation disc.
