Film critic Mack Bates and host Betty Jo Tucker review two new Susan Sarandon films -- The Last of Robin Hood and The Calling. Scott Abramovitch, who wrote the screenplay for The Calling, plans to join the discussion, and Richard Glatzer, director/writer of The Last of Robin Hood, has been invited to call in.
The Last of Robin Hood follows Errol Flynn's scandalous affair with a star-struck teenager during the late 1950s. Cast members include Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon. This intriguing movie deals with the desire for fame and the high price it exacts. Kline plays Flynn; Fanning portrays the somewhat naive teen; and Sarandon is her fame-obsessed mother.
In The Calling, a mysterious and suspenseful thriller, Sarandon portrays a world-weary detective trying to solve a series of gruesome murders. With these two very different roles, this talented Oscar-winning actress again proves her versatility.
An avid Sarandon fan, Mack Bates conducted an in-depth interview with Sarandon a few years ago for The Leader, a University of Wisconsin student newspaper. He also contributed to Tucker's book about Sarandon (Susan Sarandon: A True Maverick) and now writes for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He also serves as a staff blogger for Milwaukee Magazine's official film blog.
Why do we Christians talk about callings? Is there a biblical basis for God's calling people to a particular task? First of all, God has a general call for all people and that is to salvation; God calls all people to Himself. Then all Christians have a call--to be a witness. But beyond that, some people are called by God into a particular service. Look, for example, at the way Paul begins nearly all the epistles. Paul was setapart; he had a particular call on his life. Join us as we discuss "Calling and Seperation" on the next episode of the Power Podcast Radio Talk show.

Millions of people struggle with abandonment issues. Parents and children alike rely upon that issue as an excuse for their own short comings, failures and mistakes. On the other hand, those who have abandoned those we love struggle with trying to figure out how to build a relationship without blaming themselves and others for their failures, mistakes and choices. Unfortunately, what we don't realize on both sides is this abandonment poses one of the most life changing questions of all time. Why am I here and What is all for? Tonight we will go deeper into the purpose, destiny and calling of those who struggle with abandonment.
Before I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and became a Christian, I would get together with a bunch of my friends and we would play cards, drink, swear, tell dirty jokes etc.
Now that I'm a Christian, I am not to be a part of this. How am I going to be a light if I partake of their sinful ways. However, That doesn't mean that we are to hide ourselves in a cave somewhere. We are in this world, we live and work amongst lost humanity but we are to be a light for Jesus to them.
2Corintians 6:14-16 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2Cor 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
2Cor 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them;
and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Cor 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the
Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
2Cor 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
