this week on the show we talk with church planter, blogger, podcaster and #outlawpreacher Pastor Nar.
Pastor Nar talks about his upbringing in a fundamental evangelical church and how that contrasted with the relationships he was building with folks on the streets of Hollywood. he also talks about how he ultimately found permission and freedom in following God beyond the traditions of his youth. Nar also tells us some of the history and background behind the #outlawpreacher hashtag and how he got involved.
this week we chat with Tall Skinny Kiwi, Andrew Jones, about his emerging faith and how he’s evolved from a street evangelist to an event driven ministery to a real incarnational and relational way of sharing Jesus with others.
this week we hope you’ll enjoy a break from the norm (if there is such a thing). we’ve put together what we believe to be a steller collection of music and reflections from our listeners around the world. it is a true Advent Christmas Extravaganza.
thanks so much to everyone who participated in the process and submitted Scripture readings and reflections!
