Cracked the Southern Hemisphere

Woo-Hoo, we finally did it, the >>beyondcast>> has cracked the southern hemisphere. 

It’s crazy how this thing has downloaded. Over the past week we have had 5 downloads from Washington State, 10 from San Francisco, 21 from Colorado, 21 from Bejing, 3 in europe, and now one in the southern hemisphere, South Africa.  Absolutely Crazy. 

I tell our students often that we are a part of something bigger than ourselves and this is evidence of that.  We truly are connected to the entire world by the internet and now we have incredible opportunities to reach the world with the gospel.  Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!! God is good.

Happy Reformation Day

For some it’s happy Halloween, others it’s happy harvest day, and yet still others today is Reformation Day.  The day that Martin Luther put the worlds biggest sticky note, on which he wrote his 95 theses.  This act was the catalyst that led to what we call the protestant reformation. 

The reformation was the mother of all church splits, wars were fought people were killed nations were formed.  It’s a pretty big deal.  If you have never read anything about the reformation I would highly recommend that you google

One of my favorite classes at NC (now NU) was Church History with Dr. Heugel.  Brilliant guy, brilliant class.
