    Beyond the Standard—Worship: More Than Music

    in Christianity

    All of us know what a crucial role music plays in most weekly worship gatherings.


    But in this episode, we talk with two worship leaders whose worship planning does not begin or end with music.


    Laura Dingman creative arts director at The Creek, Indianapolis, Indiana, describes how the church moved from a sermon-centered to a story-centered model for worship planning. The result is worship experiences that engage worshippers in new and more meaningful ways.


    Join editor Mark A. Taylor  December 10 as he asks Laura, along with Tom Harrigan, worship minister at The Creek, to describe their church’s fresh approach.


    We’ll discuss not only their philosophy and strategy but also specific ideas for touching worshippers in new ways at your congregation.

    Beyond the Standard—Quitting Solitaire

    in Christianity

    How does a Christian leader maintain integrity?


    Four significant Christian leaders we know answered that question by looking to each other.


    For more than a decade, these guys have vowed to get together, stay in touch with each other, and hold each other to standards of holiness that guard and guide their ministries and their personal lives.


    Host Mark A. Taylor will ask them to explain how this works, in this lively discussion with all four of them . . .


    Ben Cachiaras, senior pastor with Mountain Christian Church, Joppa, Maryland


    Tim Harlow, senior pastor with Parkview Christian Church, Orland Park, Illinois


    Eddie Lowen, lead minister with Westside Christian Church, Springfield, Illinois


    Greg Nettle, president of Stadia, Irvine, California.


    Read Eddie Lowen's description of how this group works in the October Christian Standard. (Find it in our digital edition via the free Christian Standard app for your phone or tablet.) Then come ready for insight--and probably several laughs--in a discussion you'll want to hear and share.

  • #4HFA - The Double Standard Show: From Hulkamania to Brittney Griner

    in Sports

    Tonight, Wednesday, July 29th, the KINGS of the 7 o'clock spot will question everthing that "seems" like a popular opinion.  Sports is built on integrity, fairness, and equality.  However, with life being so unfair, we have to question how fair sports can be with human imperfection being a factor.  With that being said, tonight show will be dedicated to one of the most known unfair things in the world, "THE DOUBLE-STANDARD":


    We will discuss of there are double-standards in sports headlines like:


    1. Hulk Hogan's racist rant


    2. Brittney Griner's domestic issues


    3. The judgment of Caytlin Jenner


    4. The body image of Serena Williams


    5. The Buffalo Bills LeSean McCoy party


    6. LA Clippers Josh Smith's financial woes

    Beyond the Standard—Pursuing the Radical Center

    in Christianity

    "In a world of polarized extremes, the most  difficult position isn't pumping your fist for one extreme or the other, but moving to the middle to shake hands in the radical center, embracing the truth on both sides of an issue."


    That's the position of month's guest, Ben Cachiaras, who will talk with host Mark Taylor about all the implications and possibilities for embracing the genius of the "and."


    Jesus was both fully human AND fully God, he points out. Jesus challenges us to teach believers AND preach to unbelievers AND do ministry in the world.


    Read Ben's challenging article, along with those from several others, in the June issue of Christian Standard. And then tune in to see if you are one of those Cachiaras describes as "a new breed of Christian leader today . . . fed up with simplistic answers in a complex world."

    Sim Standard Radio Ep. 83 - Year 3 on Next Gen Consoles, Patches/New Engines

    in Video Games

    Happy New Year! Welcome back Sim gamers, were excited to kick off another year of Sim Standard Radio. Hope everyone had a great holiday season. Tonight we will be discussing year 3 on Next Gen consoles. What does that mean for gaming and what are you expecting? We will also revisit the topic in regards to the patching era. Are you in favor of patches? Are patches a good thing or bad thing? Are there too many patches that nerf realistic aspects of a sports game? This topic was inspired by the recent patch for NBA 2K16, many feel like the game has been nerfed drastically. 


    In addition to the patches we will discuss the benefits and negatives of implementing new engines in sports games. What is an engine problem vs a tech problem? Are some of the things we ask for able to be done with current engines? Once we are done with the topics we will open the line to the callers. We look forward to you guys being a big part of the discussion. See you guys at 8pm EST.
