Ericast 127 - Happy Birthday, Ericast!

Five years! Five years! Well, actually more like "Into our sixth year!"... but that doesn't have the same ring to it.

This week, just a couple quick reflections on how how the world of podcasting (and a couple other aspects of the world... but mostly the "world of podcasting") has changed in the past half-decade... or how much it hasn't changed, in a lot of cases.

Comments, questions and criticisms go to 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC) or can be e-mailed to me (eric) at Keep 'em coming!

Ericast 126 - Dying to Live

Going a different direction for this week's Ericast... we have a clip from Tim Vanderveld, Worship Ministries pastor at Berean Baptist Church in Burnsville, Minnesota.

So what?

Well, barring a miracle (which is certainly possible, in theory... but not likely, because miracles aren't "normative")... Tim will be dead in a few weeks.

But for now he's fine, and he spoke to a gathering of "adult Sunday schools" this past Sunday. It's a very strange situation, and one that I think has not only given Tim a lot of wisdom but has allowed him the strength to voice that wisdom to others. I thought there would be a lot of value in sharing his words with a wider audience.

(For those of you not tied to Berean, Tim's initial remarks have a few family notes that might not seem very interesting -- do you really care about his daughter's college schedule? -- but I left them in because it gives context to how Tim is living out his final days.)
