    Rex Dickson - We will give our reactions to Rex's surprise call to the show last week. What exactly is he saying? Why is there so much push back to the information he'ssharing? Do you believe that they are trying to do the best they can with Madden?


    Madden Ratings - We will discuss a recent article on fivethirtyeight.com written by Walt Hickey. What ratings should be tangible in the game? How can we get the combine to be more of a factor to determine ratings and skills in CFM? Should ratings be more than just Letter grades and numbers?

    Beyond the Standard—Healthy Church?

    in Christianity

    In the January issue of Christian Standard, more than a dozen church leaders give their prescription for making your church healthy. In this special episode, we talk with three of them.



    Nate Bush, lead pastor with New City Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico, wrote, A Healthy Church Helps Make a Healthy Community.
    Jeff Faull, minister with Mount Gilead Church in Mooresville, Indiana, wrote, A Healthy Church Is Doctrinally Strong.
    Joe Putting, senior pastor with Tomoka Christian Church, Ormond Beach, Florida, wrote, A Healthy Church Is a Giving Church.


    Read their pieces in Christian Standard (here’s how to download it today: http://christianstandard.com/subscribe/digital-subscriptions/). Then plan to join our conversation. Each of these fellows has more to say than print space allowed. And we’ll talk with all of them about more than their assigned topic!


    We’re looking forward to a rich discussion about earmarks of a healthy church.
