Reunion Roadmap 10/16/2021 – with Special Guest Samuel Wearp

What could  the church gain from connecting with the Jewish people in a positive way? What has the church lost over the centuries by not doing so? These are questions Samuel Wearp covers in this second part of our three-part interview with him. He should know. As a key part of his family’s ministry, Blessed Buy Israel, and of the Nations 9th of Av, Samuel has had opportunity to develop lasting friendships with Jewish Israelis, and to experience tremendous blessing through those relationships. Along the way, he has learned much of what the Bible says about the central place Israel occupies in God’s redemptive plans.

The music of Teshuva highlights the messages brought by Samuel and by Barry Phillips and David Jones in their midrash, “Honesty or Truth.”

Reunion Roadmap 10/09/2021 – with Special Guest Samuel Wearp

Samuel Wearp has worked his entire life to connect the two parts of God’s covenant family. That’s not a long time in years, but an impressive accomplishment nonetheless! The Wearp family is embarked on a calling to connect with and support the Jewish people and the state of Israel. That’s the purpose of their family business and ministry, Blessed Buy Israel, and of their involvement with the Nations 9th of Av. Samuel is living out his passion to see Christians and Jews come together in peace and mutual respect based on their shared allegiance to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and their faithful expectation of His restoration of all Israel and redemption of all nations in the Messianic Kingdom. In this first segment of a three-part interview, Samuel talks about the most recent Nations 9th of Av observance of the Fast of the 5th Month (the ninth of Av), and what has motivated him to play a significant role in this initiative to deal with the tragic history of Christians and Jews, and to make a difference for good for the future.

Samuel emphasizes the theme of repentance, or “teshuva,” in what he shares. That’s the topic of the midrash by Barry Phillips and David Jones. Teshuva is also the subject of our musical presentations, delivered, appropriately, by the band, Teshuva.

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.

Reunion Roadmap 11/21/2020 – with Special Guest MelanEE Lisa Davidson

Every testimony of redemption is improbable to some extent. Think about it: a person is heading down a certain path with no desire or ability to change – and sometimes even without knowledge that there is an alternative to the life they are leading – and then the Creator intervenes!

That is the reason Messiah Yeshua had to come to earth to take care of the deadly effects caused by our willful rebellion against the God Who made us. And then there’s MelanEE Lisa Davidson, whose testimony of redemption reaches to the high end of the improbability scale. Not only did she have no desire to depart from her “radical feminist lesbian dyke” lifestyle, she had told God in no uncertain terms that she wanted nothing to do with Him. Yet He stepped in anyway – and continued to step in even when MelanEE pushed Him away.

We hear more of this in our interview segment, the second of three parts of our visit with MelanEE. It’s a story not only of redemption, but of cleaning out the nasty things that had blocked the flow of living water in her redeemed life! Which, by the way, is something Will Spires and Solomon Lopez sing about in their musical offerings, and that Barry Phillips and David Jones discuss in a midrash they call, “Digging Wells.”

Check out MelanEE’s memoir, Loved. I. Am! One Woman’s Journey of Shattering Shame Through Experiencing PAPA’S Great Love!, available at Amazon. Also check out her website at www.hisgreatlove1.org/.
