“The Wrecking” in Napa

The Wrecking is a Christian progressive rock band made up of men whose desire is to be a voice for the voiceless.
Tonight I had a chance to catch up with Daren Elder, the drummer of the band (his brother Doug is the lead singer).
They are laying down their lives to bring attention to the terrible scourge of human trafficing  and slavery.
When you hear some of the statistics it will make you cry.
Listen to the interviews I recorded with Daren and the “Not For Sale” representative Ethan Batsone

Here is a link to a short video  (for iphones) clip from a cover worship song

If you meet me in Napa this Sunday evening you can see them perform and meet a lot of other on fire people who are making a positive difference in this world.

Interview with Jason Jones co-producer of ‘Bella”

I have met a few ‘on-fire’ people this summer…
Jason Jones has been ‘burning’ with the love of God and the Life He created for many years now!
Listen to a 15 minute conversation I had with Jason at the National Family Conference last weekend:

Here is the Movie To Movement site:
When you buy your movie tickets from Fandango through this site you can bring drinking water to a family in Sudan!!! Just do it!

You can read more about Jason’s story on the World Net Daily site:

I will post the interview with Joseph and George soon!

I have been a lay minister in the Church for 30 years and…

…and I still am amazed at how personal witness to Jesus Christ through one’s example in life ‘gets more evangelization done’ than any amount of degrees, Chancery titles, or ‘workshop presentations’.

“Modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers, and if he does listen to teachers, it is because they are witnesses. (On Evangelization in the modern world – Pope Paul VI)

We teach with our lives, and if we are good teachers, people listen as they watch, and see Jesus. Period.

Obama and Franciscan University of Steubenville

I know who wins in the end.
