    Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

    25/04/2007 Duração: 34min

    This is a sermon I preached at Grand Central. It was a part of a series Joe planned called "Frequently Asked Questions". Really it's an exploration of the question of evil.

    It's a Wonderful Life

    18/12/2006 Duração: 34min

    This is a sermon I preached around Christmas at Grand Central.

    Blessed to Bless

    19/09/2006 Duração: 27min

    This is a sermon I preached at Grand Central in conjuction with a presentation on a Hurricane relief trip we took to New Orleans. In it I deal with the nature of the people of God.

  • OVU Chapel: Truth in the Midst of Tolerance Part 2

    OVU Chapel: Truth in the Midst of Tolerance Part 2

    06/09/2006 Duração: 10min

    This is the second lesson in the two part series I was asked to do for OVU. I was very happy with how this one turned out, although for some reason the first two minutes didn't record. AE

  • OVU Chapel: Truth In The Midst of Tolerance

    OVU Chapel: Truth In The Midst of Tolerance

    06/09/2006 Duração: 15min

    I was asked to do a 2 part series on this topic. In the first lesson, I discuss tolerance, narrowmindedness and a third way that Paul seems to advocate and model. AE

  • The End of the World as We Know It: Part 3...Resurrection and Judgement

    The End of the World as We Know It: Part 3...Resurrection and Judgement

    30/08/2006 Duração: 41min

    This is the last lesson in the "End of the World as We Know It". Here we work out the implications of what we have already discussed as it relates to resurrection and judgement

  • The End of the World as We Know It. Part 2: The End?

    The End of the World as We Know It. Part 2: The End?

    23/08/2006 Duração: 37min

    This is lesson 2 of the "End of the World" series. Here we explore where the story of scripture, and thereby the story we live in, is going.

  • The End of the World as We Know It Part 1: The World

    The End of the World as We Know It Part 1: The World

    11/08/2006 Duração: 38min

    This is the first lesson in a series I'm teaching called "The End of the World as We Know It". In this lesson I discuss the beginning of the story (creation), which is crucial if you want to understand the "end". Lesson 2 will be on "The End?" and Lesson 3 will deal with the concept of judgment. I'm guessin that the perspective I'm presenting will be new to many of my students and listeners. I'm not really happy with the sound quality on this one. I'll use a better mic next week. AE

  • Life

    Life

    26/05/2006 Duração: 34min

    This is a Wednesday Night lesson I did for my youth group. The basic concept is that either Jesus offers the best life possible on earth or he's a liar and we should disregard everything he says. AE

  • Truth

    Truth

    24/05/2006 Duração: 41min

    This is the lesson I preached at Grand Central for Graduation Sunday. It deals with the concept of Truth in the context of faith. AE

  • Stages of Faith Development and the Story We Find Ourselves In

    Stages of Faith Development and the Story We Find Ourselves In

    26/04/2006 Duração: 01h18min

    This is a class I taught for adults at an event Grand Central hosted. In it I discuss a model for how faith develops and how we can respond to each stage to encourage growth. I also briefly discuss the postmodern transition and it's effect on the faith of the next generation. Finally tell an extremely brief version of the narrative of scripture. AE

  • McLaren Q amp A: Kairos 3

    McLaren Q & A: Kairos 3

    24/04/2006 Duração: 01h13min

    This is my last recording of Brian McLaren from the Kairos Gathering. There was one more session, but I had to come home early to attend a funeral, so I didn't get it. In this session, McLaren does a general Q & A. He covers subjects like the atonement, inclusion/exclusion, diversity in the emerging church, and more. Really interesting stuff. Later in the week I'll be posting a class I taught adults this weekend called "Faith Development and The Story of God" and a class I taught Sunday morning called "Fireproof: When (if ever) does a child of God fall from Grace". AE

  • Keith Matthews on Personal Spiritual Formation: Kairos Session 2

    Keith Matthews on Personal Spiritual Formation: Kairos Session 2

    21/04/2006 Duração: 01h03min

    This is the second session I recorded at the Kairos Gathering. Keith Matthews is the main presenter. To be honest, I had never really heard of him before, but through this presentation and through getting to know him over a couple of days, I am very, very impressed by the guy. In this session, Keith talks about our personal Spiritual Formation, particularly as ministers and church leaders. This is really worth listening to. AE

  • Brian McLaren on Spiritual Formation--Kairos session 1

    Brian McLaren on Spiritual Formation--Kairos session 1

    20/04/2006 Duração: 02h01min

    This is session one from a small retreat called Kairos. I know it is unusual for me to post it here, but I didn't teach this week and this is extremely good stuff. To my knowledge, these are the only recordings of this event. The speaker for this session is Brian McLaren, and he is speaking on spiritual formation in communities/churches. Tomorrow I plan on posting a session by Keith Matthews on Spiritual Formation in individuals (particularly those in ministry), and Monday I plan on posting a Q & A session with McLaren (which was excellent). There was one more session, but I left the retreat early to attend a funeral and wasn't there to record it. Enjoy. AE

  • Emerging Ministry To Students 3...Epilogue and Appendix

    Emerging Ministry To Students 3...Epilogue and Appendix

    05/04/2006 Duração: 45min

    This is session 3 of our class for the OVU Lectures. In this one we deal with finding the "Controlling Idea" of your youth ministry (or any ministry, for that matter); the question of where "the story" of God, us, and creation is going; and we share a few resources that we've found valuable. CLICK HERE for our resource list. AE

  • Emerging Ministry to Students 2: Story...Viewing the World Through a Narrative Lens

    Emerging Ministry to Students 2: Story...Viewing the World Through a Narrative Lens

    04/04/2006 Duração: 49min

    This is the 2nd session of the class Matt and I are doing for the OVU lectures. In this one we deal with the ideas of narrative and being missional. Enjoy. More tommorow. AE

  • Emerging Ministry to Students 1: Emerging Ministry to an Emerging Culture

    Emerging Ministry to Students 1: Emerging Ministry to an Emerging Culture

    03/04/2006 Duração: 45min

    This is the first session of a class session that Matt Wilson and I are teaching at the Ohio Valley University Lectures this week. We will be teaching through Wednesday and will post each day. The series deals with youth ministry in a postmodern culture. AE Note: I think I fixed the problem with Matt's audio. You might want to download again.

  • Are We Supposed To Do That? Week 3: Confrontation

    Are We Supposed To Do That? Week 3: Confrontation

    23/03/2006 Duração: 33min

    This is the 3rd Lesson in the "Are We Supposed To Do That?" series. This week I dealt with Confronting a brother or sister in Christ who are embracing sin. I was having a little technical problem with the equipment that messed up the audio a bit in places. I edited it some, but it's still kind of irritating. I think I have fixed the problem though, and it shouldn't be an issue for future episodes. Also, I've lowered the bitrate, which I hope will work better. AE
