I am a little bit excited about an upcoming interview on the Drew Marshall Show tomorrow, Saturday, April 20, 2013, at 2PM ET. Evidently, the Drew Marshall Show is the most listened to Christian talk show in Canada. Is that right, eh?
Feel free to tune in. It sounds like we’ll be talking about the lawsuit and other blog topics. Evidently one of YOU shared my blog information. I’m honored – thank you! I am all about getting the word about spiritual abuse. Thank you for sharing that passion. It is that important.
Have a listen live here on Saturday.
Ok, check this guy out. Below is a 2-part series (about 9 minutes each) and another video (about 5 minutes). The first video gets better as it goes. I think a lot of my readers will connect with Drew. He’s a little edgy (yea, I could tell that from our e-mail exchange). I like edgy. He’s authentic about real Christianity, and fed up with fake Church E. Christianese. I like him already.
The summary for the first two videos:
Watch as Drew (host of The DREW MARSHALL Show, Canada’s most listened to spiritual talkback program) makes his first (and LAST!) appearance on 100 Huntley Street. Find out why…
In this final video, Drew shares how he pays to take 5 atheists/agnostics/pagans/unchurched people $500 to attend five churches to get their opinion of the experiences. What a cool idea!
A little update on me – -I had a better day than the other day. But I want to tell you why. It’s because I experienced real church. Not the church in a building where they collect tithes. I didn’t experience a sermon using the right bible translation, but real, genuine church where two or more are gathered in His name. Thank you for loving me, encouraging me, sending me verses, the YouTube videos of songs. They were music to my soul. To the individual who risked and gave me a verbal a$$-whoopin’ regarding my negative self-talk, thank you. I needed it. You knew I needed it. Thank you for helping me to replace those lies with truth. I love you.
I got really, really low. I mean really low. The kind of low where you are left with nothingness. Where you say, “God – – – if you are there – – – – I need you now.” The response I got wasn’t anything earth shattering. There were no audible voices from heaven. I read some verses. I shared with a few close friends. I got good counsel. I’m ok now, but I am still working on stuff. I’ll likely go down again. I’m vulnerable and weak. But I am spoiled here. I know that very well. Having a visible blog allows me more connections with people than if I didn’t. I am very thankful for that.
But I want to make sure you know if at any time you are going through something dark and deep and need help or encouragement, or to ask for prayer, please post a comment on a current thread. You are always welcome to post using pseudonym. You are NOT alone here. You don’t need to walk difficult times alone. You guys were the Body of Christ to me and I know there’s enough love and support for all. He gave us that love to share. Let’s do that.
