We continue our examination of the book of Ephesians by reviewing the second chapter of the book. Paul starts by reminding all of us where we have been and then reminding us of what God has done for us in Jesus. That the God who is rich in mercy and love has given us who were dead, life. And He did it “all on his own, with no help from us!” Furthermore, he brings all of us together in Jesus Christ — the great uniter — to make us all part of the house of God.
We also take a look at an older release from Narration by George. Seasons of Changefeatures a protagonist who uses Godly principles to lead a people out of the danger of slavery to a life of freedom.
We continue looking at the book of Ephesians by studying the second part of chapter one. As Paul discusses the key to unlocking the spiritual blessing we talked about in the first study, we find that the key may not be a popular one. In fact, it can be down-right unpopular — but necessary. Are you willing to do the unpopular?
I also play an extended excerpt from a recently released audio book, The Swaddling Clothes by Amber Schamel. This is great historical fiction tracing a history of God’s people from King David to the time of the birth of Christ, focusing on the Swaddling Clothes which ultimately covered the baby Jesus.
This is the first in a series of podcasts with teaching from the book of Ephesians. The Apostle Paul wrote this letter to a church he loved deeply from a Roman prison. He clearly outlines the Good News of Jesus and then tells his readers what that means for people who follow Him.
In this section from Chapter 1, Paul tells us about the “spiritual blessings” God has bestowed on us; what they are and how to attain them. Join me as we enumerate these blessings and talk about the key to unlocking them.
Sometimes, life just interferes with the best laid plans for the week, doesn’t it? This week has been that way. I have taken on the duties of a tax preparer (I used to work for the IRS). In getting up to speed for those duties, I don’t have the physical time to complete a podcast this week. So, I’m declaring a one-week hiatus! Check back next week as we take a look at a re-release of another book, The Swaddling Clothes. This book is currently available for download at CD Baby and will soon come to audible.com and the iTunes store. Maybe next week, I can announce that this book and another have dropped into the audible library! Check back then! See you on Wednesday!!!

We continue sampling from the stories found in the book, Avatars of Websurfer. This compilation of stories by authors Andrea J. Graham (who created the world), Cindy Koepp, H. A. Titus, and Travis Perry (who compiled and published the stories under his imprint, Bear Publications) tells of the world where an artificial intelligence named Sander controls most of the computers in the world. However, Sander is more than an AI; he is human. And he longs to be free of the constraints which his users put on him. What if he broke free? What would that mean to the world; to the users in this world?
This is the first of two weeks that we’ll spend sampling the latest offering from Narration by George. Avatars of Websurferis a compilation of 10 stories by four different authors about the world of Websurfer. Websurfer controls most of the computers in the world through an Artificial Intelligence named Sander. But, Sander is more than an AI; he’s also human. And he longs to break from the chains which bind him to his users in ways that are not to his liking. Take a listen to samples of the first five stories from this book. We’ll look at the next five next week.
What did we do in 2016? What’s coming for 2017? That’s the subject this week as we look back and look forward. I play samples from some of 2016’s audio book releases. And I summarize our schedule for the coming year. It’s a full one! Join me for the review and the preview.
Being the Wednesday between Christmas and New Year’s Day, let’s take a “podcast break.” So, there will be no new audio this week. However, the Holiday Giftawayis still on. Just answer one of the questions I’ve posed in any of the past three podcasts, send me an answer via Facebook, Twitter,or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll send you the instructions to download one of the books in the Narration by George Library of audio books.
Join me in 2017 for more on audio books, spiritual ideas, and other items of interest.
