Voices In My Head Podcast Episode #116: Questions From God - Part 1 of 10.
A Sermon series by Rick Lee James
Karissa Knox Sorrell is a wife, mother, writer, and educator. She love books, coffee, early mornings, good friends, and the ocean. She grew up as a preacher’s kid and missionary kid in the Church of the Nazarene and lived in Bangkok, Thailand from the ages of 11-18. Now she makes her home in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and two children. In her twenties, she and her husband began to learn about liturgy, which led them to the Eastern Orthodox Church. They’ve been there for the past nine years. She has a passion for immigrants and people from other cultures and was an ESL teacher for eleven years. Karissa has also been pursuing creative writing for the past several years and is almost finished writing her first book, Transfigured Faith, a spiritual memoir about growing up in the home of Protestant ministers and later discovering Orthodoxy. Hear more about her writing, her family, and her faith journey on this week's episode of Voices In My Head, the official podcast of Rick Lee James.
We know Jesus the Savior, but have we met Jesus, Prince of Peace?
My guest this week is Gotee Records artist Ryan Stevenson. Ryan is a husband and father of two boys who currently serves as worship leader at Vertical Church Boise. Prior to his full-time music career, Stevenson spent seven years as a paramedic. He has performed at Creation West, Fish Fest and Lifest, among other top Christian festivals around the country, and has toured with such artists as Toby Mac, Group 1 Crew, Rachael Lampa and more.
“Ryan is an impressive songwriter who understands the delicate balance of writing songs about his faith and walking it out in a cold, cold world,” said TobyMac. “He never shies away from a 'Jesus' lyric, 'cause he is fully aware of where his strength comes from.”
On the podcast this week we have an exclusive live show with Ryan recorded at The Depot Coffeehouse in Urbana Ohio.
I was honored to be a guest on The Reel World Theology Podcast as the Spider-Man Comic Book semi-expert. I had a great time discussion the hit movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with Laura and Fizz. They were gracious enough to let me include our conversation on my show this week. If you're a fan of comics and/or movies then I know you will enjoy this discussion of the good, the bad,and the sinister in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
