Christian Turned Agnostic?

Pin It Now! This Saturday I am going to be on The Drew Marshall Show live around 12:15 P.M. (Pacific Standard Time). You probably won't be able to listen on the radio (unless you are in Canada), but there will be a live stream here. Drew Marshall is a Christian turned agnostic who is searching to figure if God exists.

I am excited to talk to him about my God encounters. I will be one of four guests for the day:
1. Tony Campolo who has written a ton of books, is a professor of sociology, former spiritual advisor to Bill Clinton, social justice activist, etc.
2. William Lubdell who wrote a book called Losing my Religion and says he lost his faith while reporting on religion in America.
3. Me, who in a moment of temporary insantity wrote one book and is really good at changing diapers . . . but not as good as my husband is. And I was on a little-known, short-lived TV show TWENTY YEARS ago. So not qualified as "prominent", but I don't care.
4. Sharon Baker who wrote about book called Razing Hell. (not a book about preschoolers though).

So join about 100,000 other listeners as I try and talk Drew off the ledge . . . or something like that. Or actually nothing like that, but it should be fun.

I've done the research on Christianity and other religions. I've looked into the historicity of the Bible, the manuscript evidence, evidence for the resurrection. I know what I have put my faith into. It is not blind faith, but it is faith. And I have had a season of doubt. I have experienced heartbreaking tragedy. And yet, I have seen God show up in tangible, ridiculous, amazing ways.
I have had some serious "God encounters" that I can't wait to share with Drew.
Pray for me please! And pray for Drew too.

After seven seasons as host of Canada's most listened to spiritual talk show, Drew announced to his listeners that he is no longer convinced there's a God. As far as we know, this would be the first time a host on a Christian station has openly admitted to a crisis of faith - at least publicly - and kept their job! So we invite you to join Drew on his search for an encounter with God.

Drew's Search For God

From now until our Christmas show on December 18, 2010 Drew will speak to a variety of prominent people during each show, asking them why they believe in God, and if they've ever had a legitimate personal encounter with Him. We'll even ask a few prominent atheist/agnostic guests why they don't believe there’s a God. Basically, we'll ask each of our DROOGLE guests to attempt to "talk him off the ledge!" Either to jump - or to climb back inside his faith. Our "God Guests" will include celebrities, apologists, theologians, and authors. Bottom line - Drew is asking for an "encounter" with God for Christmas.

What an awesome opportunity for you. That is so exciting. I will pray for the show. And for everyone who will hear it. Even if Drew doesn't get "talked off the ledge", you never know how many listeners may be reached.
God Bless this show!!!!!
