EPISODE 2: Curt Gibson Interview
– John didn’t think we were mean to Ray Comfort in episode 1
– we’ll only mention Carla (the direct supervisor for each of us at UYWI), who is one of our 8 subscribers. (link to UYWI staff page to see Carla’s pic)
– John referenced “Cities of God: The Real Story of How Christianity Became an Urban Movement and Conquered Rome” by Rodney Stark (at Amazon and Paperback Digital) and 2 reviews (a DETAILED review and another opinion)
– sorry for the Skype alert noises and typing the background. Another UYWI staffmember was trying to get Ben into a meeting, and Ben was doing the recording (and wasn’t muted). Ben now has his alerts turned off, so it doesn’t wreck future podcasts.
– “vietmanese” means “vietNAMese” in John’s terminology.
– John references “Emerging Worship: Creating Worship Gatherings for New Generations” by Dan Kimball (on Amazon) though Ben’s not sure if he meant to reference “The Emerging Church: Vintage Christianity for New Generations” (on Amazon) which is also by Dan Kimball.
– John also references UYWI06 speaker Shane Claiborne’s book “The Irresistible Revolution” (on Amazon, and as an audiobook on iTunes)
– Ben then references Tony Campolo’s podcast (iTunes) of his weekly Great Britain radio broadcast “Across the Pond” on Premier Christian Radio at www.premier.org.uk Ben’s not real good with references and listen to dozens of podcasts, so it could be the wrong podcast. It might be THIS podcast (Saturday’s with Mark & Tony)
– Curt Gibson joins us on the phone and is Lake Ave Church’s (Pasadena, CA) Director of Neighborhood Student Ministries
– Curt first learned evangelism at Rockmont College (now Colorado Christian University)
– Curt references “Dissident Discipleship: A Spirituality of Self-Surrender, Love of God, and Love of Neighbor” by David Augsburger (on Amazon)
– John is a fan of ESPN‘s Hot Seat.
– Curt thinks hip-hop music is evolving.
– we still need a ending phrase… “it all sounded so good” seemed lame.
“John & Ben” Intro and extro music is “Rocket” by Dan Eash of the group Modus Tolens.
