Here & There Podcast S01E15 - Splish Splash, I Am Taking A Sabbath - March 31, 2015

March 31, 2015

"Remember the ‪#‎Sabbath‬ day by keeping it holy." - God (Exodus 20:8)

In his first appearance on the Here & There Unofficial Global Worker Podcast, Darcy McAlister shoots straight about the disease of workaholism and how we all need to be better with shutting down and taking a regular break. Darcy gently reinforces this bridge command from The Big 10 and calls Matt a ‪#‎Pharisee‬ while he's at it. Don't miss his recommendations for ‪#‎sex‬ on the sabbath, and what his favourite sabbath activity is! Leanne joins in the conversation from the peanut gallery and can be heard drilling out her own cavity near the end of the episode. ‪#‎takingabreak‬ ‪#‎keepingitholy‬ ‪#‎rest‬ ‪#‎relax‬ ‪#‎enjoycreating‬ ‪#‎eatlife‬ ‪#‎bringlife‬ ‪#‎personnelandfamilylife‬

Here & There - S01E14 - Meet the Home Team - March 24, 2015

March 24, 2015

"He shoots, he scores!" (Or for our French listeners: "le tire et le but!"). With the NHL playoffs just around the corner (Matt's team will not be playing this year but Shel's team will be...) we thought we'd do a bit of a sports-centresque show this week. Now before you turn away in disgust because you can't stand sports, we want to let you know that this is a sports-free episode. Instead we look at the highlights from Matt's great roundtable discussion with the future prospects of the global working world; we play another round of the ever popular "Does Matt Care?" AND we talk about being on the home team vs the away team. To top it all off we have a great interview with newcomer Felicia Empey that you do not want to miss. GO TEAM GO!

Here & There Podcast S01E13 - Out Of The Mouths Of Babes - March 17, 2015

March 17, 2015

I was 33 when I walked out of my first International Missions Operations Committee meeting when Bill Morrow (name dropper, I know) said to me, "It's good to have a younger guy at our table, you know...someone whose leadership is ascending." After Googling "ascending" to make sure I hadn't just been dissed by the Gen Supe, I wondered why 33 was considered young and why I was still ascending. By that age, many of my risky notions or radical ideas had been deflated by the reality of everyday life, practical planning, and common sense. In a brand new road trip edition of the Here & There Podcast, I had the chance to ask 12 truly young (late teens/early twenties) and ascending leaders from Master's College & Seminary what they thought about the future of global work. It might be time to invite a few of them to our tables.

HnT The Missionary Position on International Churches - March 10, 2015

March 10, 2015

How do you move a Fortune from Baku to Basel? On this week’s Missionary Position we don’t talk international banking trends but what it takes to pastor an international church. Whether it’s the world of Big Oil companies or Big Drug companies, David and Rhonda Fortune have been there and done that. They talk with us about what it’s like to live in two vastly different locations, how to relate to and lead people who are much, much smarter than David and also share about how important the International Church is within the world of missions. Plus we do a HnT Rapid Fire first: “Double Barrels!” and David brings the debate over yoga pants to a stunning conclusion.
