Show Notes

The Giving of the Holy Spirit

We turn back to Jason’s project of blogging through the Gospel of John, looking at the promised coming of the Holy Spirit that Jesus discusses in the Upper Room Discourse (John 13-17).

Sponsor: FaithTree Men’s Bible Study

Jason and Tim discuss the FaithTree Men’s Bible Study which is going through the book of Acts. You can join online Thursday evening at 7 pm.

Russell Moore, Church Abuse and Faithfulness

The Zippy Crew turns to Russell Moore’s departure from the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, in significant part due to the backlash he has received for trying to fight to expose abuse within the Convention. We think more generally about the problem of sexual and spiritual abuse within the Church and our call to do something about it.

Facebook v. Twitter

Tim and Jason turn to Facebook versus Twitter and consider how their former skepticism of Twitter has turned to a preference for the service.

Praying through the Socials

We then turn to the topic of using social media as a prayer prompt and how that can help change our perspective while engaging online.
