Reunion Roadmap 6/12/2021 – with Special Guest Georgina Saunders

When a follower of Messiah Yeshua experiences a connection and call to Israel, then it only makes sense that God would send her to China. Well, it may not make sense in our way of thinking, but that is exactly what happened to Georgina Saunders! As she learned by experience, her time as a teacher in China strengthened her in many ways, and taught her many lessons that would be essential in her journeys to Israel and other places she followed the Holy Spirit’s leading. As each journey unfolded, she gained a new appreciation of her connection with God’s covenant nation of Israel, and an understanding of her identity as part of that nation!

Georgina’s experiences have taught her much about proper perspective about her identity in Messiah Yeshua and how that impacts her daily life. Perspective is exactly what Barry Phillips and David Jones discuss in their midrash, and having our Creator as the center of our perspective is the message in music we hear from Mason Clover and Jimmie Black.

Reunion Roadmap 6/05/2021 – with Special Guest Georgina Saunders

At 95 years of age, Georgina Saunders has a few stories to tell. We cover a few of those stories in this three-part interview! Among the amazing things we learn is that Georgina’s intimate walk with the Lord began at about the time many people are entering their twilight years. Her life was already eventful and fascinating before then, but the real adventure began when she surrendered her life to Yeshua, embraced an enduring love of Israel, and made herself available to her Redeemer to go where He directed. As we learn in this show, that commitment took her immediately to the ends of the earth!

One thing we hear in Georgina’s story is a willingness to stand alone in service to her King. That’s a topic Barry Phillips and David Jones explore in a midrash they call, “Stand Alone When Necessary” – a message with echoes in the music of Will Spires and Melody Joy Cloud.

Reunion Roadmap 5/15/2021 – with Special Guest Pete Wilson

At what age do young people become capable of understanding complicated biblical themes? Maybe at the same age they are assaulted by the hard things of life that could plague them into adulthood – things like sex, drugs, gender confusion, and all the other areas of life under assault by the relativistic culture of our day. Pete Wilson might say that it’s not really a question of whether teenagers can grasp complicated subjects, but which approach to those subjects they will adopt. Thus the real question is how they can be helped into choosing the right approaches that will equip them to be image bearers of Messiah Yeshua, the King Redeemer we also know as Jesus Christ.

In this final episode of our conversation with Pete, we hear how he has dealt with this specific challenge to youth ministry. It’s why he is willing to engage them with heavy topics like systematic theology, making it relevant to their young lives. It’s also why he meets them where they are to help them deal with the challenges they face, such as pornography (for which he has found a powerful resource called Fight the New Drug (https://fightthenewdrug.org/). This is what has made Pete an effective youth minister at Founded in Truth Fellowship.

In a real sense, Pete is breaking down barriers that hinder inter-generational communication. This is an aspect of what Barry Phillips and David Jones talk about in their midrash, “Breaking Boxes.” This is a process that requires love and forgiveness, two topics Mason Clover and Will Spires explore in song.

Reunion Roadmap 5/08/2021 – with Special Guest Pete Wilson

If you have teenagers in your life, then you probably know it is difficult sometimes to communicate effectively with them. Is there a way to know how to connect with young people? Pete Wilson will tell he doesn’t have all the answers, but in his leadership of the youth ministry at Founded in Truth Fellowship, he has found some things that have worked well – such as Fight the New Drug (https://fightthenewdrug.org/), a program he has used to help teens who struggle with pornography. That’s one of the things we learned about in this second part of our three-part interview with him.

A big part of Pete’s success is in meeting teenagers where they are. This is an aspect of what Barry Phillips and David Jones discuss in their midrash called, “Self-Centered or Yah-Centered?” That’s also something we hear in this show’s musical offerings from Eved Adonai and Gregory Brown.

Reunion Roadmap 5/01/2021 – with Special Guest Pete Wilson

Do you ever wonder what young people are thinking, or how to communicate with them? Pete Wilson has devoted much of his life to those questions. That is why this father of 7 (soon to be 8!) stepped into the role of Youth Pastor at Founded in Truth Fellowship in Rock Hill, South Carolina. We learn Pete’s story in part one of our three-part visit with him. If you have teenagers in your life, you will appreciate Pete’s insights!

Our musical guest is Rut Banks, bringing to us two special songs about her walk with Yeshua. Rut’s music introduces our Elders Barry Phllips and David Jones as they take up the topic of the Generation Gap in this week’s midrash.
