CTN 167: 12 Hours Trapped In An Airport

CTN 167: 12 Hours Trapped In An Airport

August 10, 2022

If you have heard anything about flights lately, you won't be surprised that our recent trip involved a flight cancelation, 12 hours in an airport, a flight reroute, and an additional two hour drive - just to get to our destination. In this episode, I will be sharing our story, how we passed the time, and my suggestions on how to handle it differently. We got a little emotionally worked up, and in the process - we didn't consider all of our options. I hope that this helps you if you get stuck in an airport at some point.

July 27, 2022

Whether you are a Lutheran or not, it's hard to deny that Martin Luther made a huge impact on a large number of denominations to this day. In this episode, we will follow the early Church up to the Reformation and take a closer look at some of the cities where Martin spoke up against the practices that the church was falling into in his day. We will also take a closer look at some of the places you can visit there today. (Although if you are watching this on our YouTube channel - you will be able to better see these places as well.)

CTN 164: Following The Footsteps of Paul in Greece

July 20, 2022

Did you know that Paul visited at least 5 different cities in Greece, and two of them received letters that we now know as part of the New Testament. In this episode, we will take a closer look at all 5 cities, what Paul did there, and what you can see there today. As Greece is largely known for it's philosophers - it comes as no surprise that Paul spent a lot of his time discussing concepts like the resurrection with them.

Egypt is known for many momentous moments where God intervened on behalf of the Israelites.

Can you imagine walking where Jesus once walked? Susan B. Mead is on fire for the Lord, but when she was blessed to go to the Holy Land, her faith grew tremendously! As she walked the streets of Jerusalem, was able to look to the north and south and see places she had read in Scripture, was able to converse with other Christians there - the Lord spoke into her life in wonderful ways. In this episode, Susan shares these beautiful stories and encourages us as we continue to carry out our own faith walk.
