Did you ever wonder how many children in your neighborhood might be in need of help? There are probably quite a few, signaling their needs in ways even they don’t understand. It takes some attention, compassion, and discernment to identify those signals, and then it takes courage, love, and patience, to offer help.
We heard about this in a previous Reunion Roadmap interview with Susie Boyle, Outreach Director with Fostering the Family in South Carolina. Now we have the blessing of hearing from the child Susie and her family helped. Kennedy Rios is all grown up now and pursuing a promising future in her hometown of Detroit, Michigan. She’s got quite a story to tell of overcoming obstacles just to connect with the gifted, strong woman God made her to be. We get to hear some of that story in this two-part interview!
Kennedy’s story provides a powerful introduction to the discussion Barry Phillips and David Jones call “Pray.” If the prayers of our parents and grandparents have made a difference for good in our lives, what kind of difference are we making in the lives of our children and grandchildren? Will Spires and Teshuva help us process that question with their musical offerings.
How should we pray for Israel? Given the constant turmoil in the Holy Land, what should be the focus of our intercession?
That’s a question we asked Barbara Foerster during our conversation about her recent visit to Israel. This latest sojourn of five weeks in the Blessed Land covered Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, as well as many interactions with new and old friends and Israelis of many different backgrounds. As you might expect, Barbara’s intimate knowledge of the land and people of Israel, and her heart of faith in Israel’s God, fill her answers with wisdom!
Our focus on Israel continues through the music of Teshuva and Mason Clover, and in the concluding segment of the midrash Barry Phillips and David Jones call, “Home.”
What? You’ve never been to the Promised Land? Well, then, maybe you need some incentive to go! Barbara Foerster can help with that. Her recent sojourn in Israel was her first since the Covid pandemic severely restricted international travel. Barbara is no stranger to the Blessed Land, having traveled there so many times that she now regards Israel as home. She speaks so fondly of that home in this two-part interview that you will be inspired to go there and see for yourself the miracle of Israel!
“Home” is the theme of this show, as we hear in the midrash from Barry Phillips and David Jones in which they look into what scripture says about the eternal home of Yeshua’s people. We also enjoy music about our eternal home through the artistry of House of Aaron and Teshuva.
