"Building Steps to the Hindu Shrine"; by Pastor Steve Grace (Podcast #11)

I'm rebooting the podcast here in This Strange Land. I had tons of technical trouble with my audio file server that I had signed up with and so for a long time the files were unavailable or missing. I've fixed part of that. I lost all of the files and was able to regain some of them. You'll notice that some of my old posts have been deleted because I wasn't able to recover the audio files from the hosting service I was using (they went out of buisness). However the new and improved Broadcasts from This Strange Land is now live. You can subscribe by clicking on the button on the sidebar or click on this link to take you to the iTunes store. The podcast mission is to bring you the best audio for life, faith, and family. For now most of it will not be original content, rather things I have listened to recently that I either found helpful, challenging, faith-building, convicting or just plain entertaining. Some day I hope to put out some original stuff but am a little too busy at the moment. Today's audio is a sermon that my good friend Pastor Steve Grace preached at Fellowship Baptist Church in Joplin MO. The title of the message is "Building Steps to the Hindu Shrine." I listen to quite a lot of sermons on a weekly basis and this one hit me right where it hurts, namely loving my neighbors. Steve is hands down one of the best Bible preachers I know of. I'm not going to say too much because I think he tends to stop by this little spot on the internet from time to time so I don't want him to struggle with pride. In full disclosure I used to work with and for Steve as his lowly youth intern. I hope this changes your perspective on Jesus and challenges you as well. Enjoy!
