Video Killed the Radio Star

I'll be on the radio twice this week, for those of you who are really bored and lonely.

On Tuesday, I'll be on the Kim Jeffries Show on KTIS 900AM in the Twin Cities (and some other stations in the Upper Midwest) from 12:30 - 1:00pm CST. I'll be talking about The Sacred Way. You can listen to a live stream here.

On Wednesday, I'll be on the Louie Free Radio Show (in Youngstown, OH) WASN 1500AM, sometime between 8 and noon EST. There I'll be talking about Bush's State of the Union Address.

KTIS is an evangelical Christian station; the second is an Air America station.

That's called radio whiplash.

be careful not to dabble too much in politics...you will eventually sink your own ship in this country...for you will polarize yourself and alienate half (perhaps over half) of your audience.

You are a rock star! ;-) Good to hear the updates. Hate I couldn't swing up to Waco while you were there.

Dude- you are KILLING me. I'm listening to the KTIS radio broadcast (17 minutes in) and my intellect is being assaulted. Perhaps a little "heads up" as to when YOU actually appear....

Tony, off topic - how do I contact you for booking a Sacred Way gig on Canadian west coast?

Tony writes, "I've presented at places as diverse as Princeton Theological Seminary, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Church Divinity School of the Pacific, and Wheaton College"

Is this a joke? Diversity? That's like saying "I read a diverse spectrum of authoers such as Max Lucado, Chicken soup for the soul, the Left Behind Series, John Calvin, CS Lewis, The prayer of Jabez, and the Holy Longing"

That's like saying, "I have a diverse range of international experince including visits to countries like Canada, the US, and England.

Wheaton College, PTS, SBTS, and CDS of Pac are all the same, arn't they?

Laughable man....

monte -

you must not be familiar with how pidgeon-holed most christian writing speaking is. sure, all of these places more or less represent evangelical higher education, but their theological perspectives represent some pretty serious lines in the sand for most people.

sbts and pts would probably consider your comments to be grounds for a holy war, just to prove that they are not similar.

that's one of the things i love about what emergent is doing: they're talking with people from all across the evangelical/mainline/catholic/(even jewish) spectrum. something a lot of people are very afraid of. most prefer to saty in thier own little tent.

suburban Jesus,

you write, "they're talking with people from all across the evangelical/mainline/catholic/(even jewish) spectrum. something a lot of people are very afraid of. most prefer to saty in thier own little tent."

a lot of people? a lot of people? No no, only the conservtive evangelicals (and not even all of them) would be afraid of that...but MOST people in this world, most people are normal and think it NORMAL to talk accross lines...it's only the religious nuts like you find in conservative evangelicalism...or the dogmatic positivists in catholicism who are tunnel-visioned....not to mention those psycho terrorists in ISlam....

I don't see it like that at all - it goes both ways. In general (not everyone mind you) people like to talk to those who agree with us the most because that's the most comfortable. The "far left" from Harvard isn't calling up their peers at "far right" Wheaton and proposing that they work together. But neither is Southern Baptist Seminary calling up Princeton and saying "let's work together". It goes both ways.

(Disclaimer: I disdain labels of right and left, because they're purely subjective constructions that are entirely based on perspective, so don't pin me to the ground on them. I know a lot of people wouldn't consider Wheaton "far right" (I'm among them) but that's how it gets characterized)

Brian - you are right...Emergent is the best! They are always right! They also know what is best. They are just a grown-up evangelical middle-to-upper-class proterstant white hipster/groovie/funky coffee slurping pill-popping artsy (but really un-original) theology group that pretends to listen to everyone, but really they don't - but you are right....emergent knows best like always, I guess and if you are not with them, then you're against them, right?

Wow. Things certainly get heated over here. I am kinda lost as to how all this became such a major issue...

Praying for you, Tony.

Peace

PTS, Wheaton, and SBTS the same? man, you gotta give me some of whatever you're smoking--it must be good stuff. as a baptist, PTS and SBTS are, though both confessional, light years apart in their approaches. for example, you'd never see anyone at SBTS wearing a "gay? fine by me." tshirt.

Emergent must find its way within confessional places, diverse as they are, for Emergent is ultimately, as i understand it, about the churches.
