John and Louisa Lotzgesell serve at the Rio Grand Bible Institute along the border of Texas and Mexico. We talk about the spiritual life behind a fruitful one. John and Louisa are both very warm communicators, each in their own way, and have knowledge and wisdom about the spiritual life. It was a privilege to spend time with them.
I met Brian at the gym. Even though we enjoyed some conversations together, I don’t think I even knew his name at that point. But I asked him if he would like to be on my podcast. Brian is a Christian, and he’s also Roman Catholic, so that was interesting to me. I was interested in what Christianity is like for a fellow Christian who is of a different church tradition from me.
Near the end I talk about a discipleship group I’m interested in. If you are interested in joining me or doing something similar on your own, feel free to contact me.
The book I mentioned, Discipleship Essentials by Greg Ogden
Wendy Sapp was the pastor of Compton Heights Baptist Church in St. Louis, MO when my wife and I were married there in 1986. I left for the navy with my new bride and have only seen Pastor Sapp a handful of times since then, so I was happy to sit down with Pastor Sapp to get to know him better. I admire the joy Pastor Sapp has in serving God.
Pastor Sapp talks about what the church is like, his growing up experience, becoming a Christian and then becoming a pastor. He also talks about his daily prayer practice.
