Hanging with Chuck Smith and Raul Ries

July 19th, 2008 Posted in lost boy, travel

We had a great time on the Praise the Lord program Thursday night on TBN. If you go to iTunes, you can actually download the show for free.

I was a guest, along with Raul Ries and Chuck Smith, and we were interviewed by Paul Crouch Jr., who I thought did a really good job. Chuck actually teared up when he was sharing about his Christian upbringing.

The whole two-hour show was a wonderful tribute to Chuck’s life and ministry, which was richly deserved. It is well worth watching.

Raul also shared his powerful story of coming to Christ and I was able to share my story as well. They also showed a few clips from the Lost Boy film. I will post a couple of clips from the show on Monday for you.

This Sunday at Harvest

Don’t forget, this Sunday I am back in my Acts series Upside-Down Living with a message titled “Unsung Heroes.”

Our special musical guest will be my friend, Marty Goetz. Marty is a Messianic Jew, who uses his incredible gifts of songwriting and singing to glorfiy God. I often think of what the Psalmist David might have sounded like when I listen to Marty.

I am preaching in South Dakota on Sunday night

I will be there speaking at the Hills Alive Festival on Sunday at around 7:30 P.M., South Dakota time.

I will also be meeting with some pastors there the next day about a potential Harvest Crusades event in South Dakota. I am also going to take a Harley ride and we are going to see Mount Rushmore. That is a first for me, and I am really looking forward to it.

Etc., etc.

Here is my column this week from WorldNetDaily. And here is my long-form devotion.

    It was wonderful to see your faces on TV. I listened to Pastor Smith and Pastor Ries while living in CA on my commute to work and back. Of course I attended Harvest so I saw Pastor Greg on most Sundays. May God bless you as you continue to preach the Word of God without compromising its true message. BTW it was a powerful ending when you all took turn in sharing about your faith and Pastor Smith leading the viewers in prayers.

    It was great to see you all on TBN. I live in Atlanta, GA. I called my dad immediately. My mom and he were saved during the Jesus People Movement at Calvary Costa Mesa. They saw you all come on to the scene as well. My dad was on staff at Costa Mesa in 83 and 84. I came to the Harvest Crusade in 2002. Ricky Ryan got me in good seating with all the Pastor’s wives in the stands and I had an opportunity to come down to the green room to meet you and say hi to Chuck. I really enjoyed that opportunity. Take care. I am still trying to find the Song book you illustrated. I lost my dads. He was quite upset at me. So if you happen to have an extra one somewhere I would really appreciate it.

    Being kind to others is very Christ-like. You never know when you may be entertaining angels and unaware of it. :-) Be ye kind, one to another. Ephesians 4:32

    Really great job on TBN the other night Greg!
    It was such an awesome program that I watched the full two hours of it and didn’t fall asleep! Loved Chuck Smith’s smile, loved your impressions, loved the stories that you guys shared!
    Its amazing to see God use men from such totally different upbringings (whether they be dysfunctional or they be raised in a Christian home) and use them in a mighty way!!
