Matt Webster is an Adventist film maker and graduate of Southern Adventist University's film production program. He's currently working at Hawaiian Mission Academy as a film instructor while working as a freelance filmmaker. We discuss the problems with Christian film making, the opportunities that are missed with evangelism through film, and the importance of storytelling.
There are plenty of topics out there that christians don't like talking about. Why is that? Why do people complain that we don't talk about things and then avoid talking about them when given the opportunity? I explore the seven reasons why churches and Christians avoid uncomfortable issues and tough topics.
Tim is a bisexual man with an incredible story of abuse, darkness, grace, and love who was introduced to church just three years ago. Michael is a gay man who has been in the church for over 30 years. Both attend church with me at Kettering Adventist church. In this episode I get to visit with them to talk about the weekend's sermon about LGBTQ, a drama I was in portraying a gay man, and hear their story about their journey towards peace within the church as gay men.
This week I get together with my friend Jessica who is an agnostic, pre-med college student and Romanian immigrant, to talk about what is going on with US politics right now. We analyze the Trump innaugeration, talk some politics, religion, and I get some understanding on what makes millenials so unique in today's culture.
I set down with a friend to talk about racism. How has he experienced it growing up as an African American in the United States? Does he have fear or hope for the future of race relations? And do Christians have a bigger responsibility to step up and do something about it.
