This week on Voices In My Head, my guest is Thomas Merton. Thomas Merton is a spiritual hero of mine and even though he passed away many years ago, his writings and life have been a major influence upon the world. Today I read selections from his book, No Man Is An Island, and share some Merton inspired thoughts on salvation.
My guest this week is the host of a great radio program call Under The Radar which weekly features gourmet music by both mainstream and independent artists. It’s pleasure to share airtime with this truly cool husband, father of 5, and connoisseur of pizza. It’s a really great show and we cover a lot of topics including Under The Radar’s summer show, Escape To The Lake, which will feature friend of the Podcast Sara Groves on their main stage. You won’t want to miss this great episode of Voices In My Head.
This week’s podcast was recording at 100.7FM WEEC in Springfield Ohio. It’s the first radio show I’ve done to promote my new book, Out of the Depths: A Songwriter’s Journey Through the Psalms. I get to share some music, some stories, and even read some from the book.
On this episode of Voices In My Head I get to join forces with Pastor and Podcast host (Storymen) J. R. Forasteros. We talk about Ant Man, Batman, Movies, and if Christianity is family friendly. Don’t miss this crossover Podcast.
