Monday, November 28, 2011Can Martha Have a Mary Christmas? Host(s): Lynne Ford
Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

For most women, the mention of Christmas creates visions of meals to cook, gifts to buy, cards to mail, parties to organize, and events to attend (in full fashion, of course). Somewhere in the mix…we lose sight of Jesus. Speaker and author Brenda Poinsett, author of Can Martha Have a Mary Christmas?, (New Hope, ISBN# 1-56309-931-4) understands the temptation to forget resting at Jesus’ feet in favor of planning a party in His honor. With tender insights and touching stories, she untangles expectations and teaches us how to truly experience Jesus – at the season of His birth.

Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

Recent studies show that 75% of Americans say they are fans of Jesus. The problem is…Jesus doesn’t want fans. He wants souls completely committed to following Him. And less than half of the “Jesus fans” would commit to being sold-out followers of Christ. Pastor Kyle Idleman’s thought-provoking book Not a Fan (Zondervan, ISBN# 978-0-310-33193-3) awakens apathetic Christians and motivates them to go on a journey of soul-searching to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple. Join Kyle on this encore Mid-Morning to hear more about Jesus’ invitation…not to be a fan…but to be a follower.
