Two days ago, I posted Alaska: R. T. Kendall, author of “Total Forgiveness” (a forgive-others-&-be-free book) will be speaking at Abbott Loop on Sunday, in which I mentioned the ALCC podcast. But today, I’m thinking that maybe some would be confused if they would sign up for the podcast and then hear Rick speaking the most recent message.
For those unfamiliar with Abbott Loop Community Church (formerly called Abbott Loop Christian Center) in Anchorage, Alaska, Rick Benjamin had been senior pastor for 19 years until September of 2008, when Joshua Tanner took over. Rick mentioned this and what he’s been doing since in the introduction to his message, last Sunday, but ALCC cut this out of the podcast. I don’t quite understand why, but this could be confusing for listeners who had heard he’d stepped down. So I thought I’d clarify with this post.
Of their currently posted podcasts, the only message that I highly recommend people listen to (before it rotates out) is the message by Art Mathias about forgiving others. This message was a historical landmark in ALCC history for a number of reasons. Yay, Art — and the current leaders who allowed Art to speak!! Bravo!!!
And forgiving others is a key ingredient to real revival happening — so we can have church once again!!
