Okay – so I’m not a huge podcast guy. But it turns out that spending a lot of time by myself either painting our new house (it takes two coats of primer and two coats of paint to cover that dark grey – who paints their house dark grey anyways?!) and my frequent treks across the prairies to visit my folks in Alberta (my mom is living with ALS) have given me the opportunity to explore a number of offerings. As you may know there are a lot out there but a particular podcast that has a lot of relevance to us at WCV is called “The Ferment: conversations about worship and transformation”.
As I’ve listened to various episodes, I’ve had so many “aha moments” I just had to pass along the treasure to you. It’s put out there by Vineyard Worship and features a wide range of guests and covers a broad gamut of subjects loosely gathered around worship and transformation.
Here are a few of my favourite episodes so far:
- “The Lasting Impact of the Toronto Blessing” with Dr. Caleb Maskel – exploring the nature and theology of renewal
- “Costa Mitchel” – on reconciliation and historical Vineyard stories
- “Millenial Whoa” – conversations with 5 millennial worship leaders
- “Dr Brittany Kim” – on understanding the hard bits of the Old Testament
- “Bob & Penny Fulton” – founding leaders of the Vineyard – great stories
- “Carol Wimber-Wong” – co-founder of the Vineyard movement – more great stories
- “Andy Squyres” – singer / songwriter on embracing transformation & suffering
- “David Ruis” – on worship & justice including some of WCV’s early story
