Recovering Discarded Dreams
During today's conversation on Back Porch Theology we're going to talk about a heart-warming story in Mark's Gospel narrative that involves a man named Bart, who much like the little engine that could of children's literature, persevered through significant adversity and by doing so, experienced both the miracle of physical and emotional healing. We're also going to talk about a Greek word that's used in the original telling of Bart's story - epitimao - which means, "to command with the implication of a threat" and how some of us have laid down God-authored dreams because of the cold water others have poured on our proverbial fires. Our deep hope is that the Holy Spirit will use today's conversation to spur some of you to pick up a divine dream you prematurely discarded and that much like Caleb, you'd begin to realize your latter years will be even better than your former and that our compassionate Creator Redeemer is not through writing the redemptive chapters in your story! Today might just be the day that real hope barges back into your battered heart, so please grab a cup of coffee and your Bible - unless you're driving or getting a head start on hanging Christmas lights, of course - and come hang out on the porch with Alli, Dr. Howard and me!

You're invited to hang out on Lisa Harper's back porch and enjoy conversations about all things Jesus, theological anthropology, biblical orthodoxy, Spanx, the merits of Tex-Mex and more!

We believe this podcast will help you dive deeper into God's word, understand that the gospel is great news for everyday life, not just when viewed in the light of eternity, and that God is for us, that He's always been in the process of redeeming our inherent value as imago Dei and restoring us into a vibrant, intimate relationship with Him.

And rest assured, this won't be a one-sided conversation because throughout the podcast, Lisa will be inviting friends, including some brilliant theologians and academics to join her in substantive but decidedly unstuffy segments. So come on, y'all grab some coffee or sweet tea and join us on the back porch!
