I'm a little bit of a podcast-junkie. Yesterday I realized that I listened to four in one day! That was highly abnormal for me, but I typically listen to at least one a day.
Yesterday, I listened to Andy Stanley while I was working out, another Andy Stanley message while I got ready, a Beth Moore talk that corresponded with the place I am in my Bible study on Esther, and another DVD during Caedmon's naptime that a friend loaned me. Sometimes I listen while I'm cooking, cleaning, or if I have a long drive somewhere. It's a great way to fill my mind with truth instead of letting it sit idle or digress into something worse than idleness.
So I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite podcasts that I listen to on a regular basis.
Steven Furtick, Elevation Church--
very inspirational and motivating, powerful communicator
Mark Driscoll, Mars Hill Church--
lots of research, bold in his communication of truth, sarcastic/funny
Andy Stanley, North Point Church--
so wise. so simple.
Craig Groeschel, LifeChurch.tv--
passionate, innovative, awesome leader
Those are the ones I subscribe to and listen to almost weekly. They can all be downloaded for free on iTunes.
I know it's a little over-the-top to listen to so many podcasts and that there is no way that I could possibly absorb or remember all that truth. But, hey, most of us don't even absorb or remember the truth that we hear at church on Sunday, so I just keep pouring it into my brain and hopefully some of it will stick.
Most nights it takes me a while to fall asleep, so I lay in bed and try to remember the different talks I listened to that day. Kinda my system for review, I guess.
I'd love to hear any of your suggestions for favorite podcasts.
