PP039 Unity is Possible

How many disagreements could be overcome if Christians really understood that their own faction and the one they are fighting with are both fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God? In this second half of Vincent Kember’s discussion on Christian unity, we consider some of the threats to unity and the way to enjoy unity. While unity is not something we can conjure, it is something we can nurture. Listen for Vincent’s three practical, concrete ways in which we can do that.

PP037 United by…?

It is easy to mistake uniformity for unity, but true Christian unity isn’t dependent on wearing the same color tie or reading the same type of literature in your spare time. Biblical unity is centered on Jesus Christ. And sometimes the external differences that initially catch the eye of man can even serve to amplify true Christian unity.


Scriptures Referenced: Ac 2:1-11; Ac 11:23; Rom 15:5-6; 1Cor 12:12-13

PP015 Getting Excited about the Ascension

We are deeply moved by Christ’s incarnation (birth) and death on the cross. Most of the time we also remember to glory in his resurrection. Do we forget to be similarly moved by the Lord’s ascension? If so, we’re missing out! The truth is, we all get excited about all kinds of ascension stories from every day life. When we see the ultimate ascension story in light of these other ascension stories, we’ll find ourselves rejoicing in it as well. In this episode, Mike shows us five images from everyday life to help us: the ascension as linchpin, punch line, laser level, rags to riches story, and navigational aid.
