And so we come to the end - the fourth and final chapter of Philippians. The story of Paul starting this church in Philippi was like that of a band on a very intense tour: he was doing concerts in a prison, had people heckling him in street performances, got beaten up, and eventually started a church with a fashion designer called Lydia, an ex-demon possessed girl, and a prison warden.
With the tragic shooting in Las Vegas, the guys share their thoughts on guns and gun violence in the U.S.A. They also discuss the impact that PlayBoy founder Hugh Hefner has had on our culture and Matt Chandler’s decision to only pastor one church with one location. Is there a random story by David you may ask? Well yes, indeed there is.
The guys sat down with Greg Boyd and discussed, speed metal drumming, the growing irrelevance of the church, and how not to burn out.

If the Apostle Paul Had a Band - Part 5

We’ve been reading through Philippians, and looking to Paul and his team to set the example for us in the art and music scene today. Paul toured all over the place, preached Jesus, and planted churches. We’ve been challenged by his love for his audience, dedication to the proclaiming of the message, and sacrifice for the cause.

You see, if Paul had had a band, they would have been different to most bands and artists today because they’d be completely sold out for Jesus. In Philippians chapter 3, Paul declares, “Indeed, I count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus, my Lord.”
In the ‘70s and ‘80s, punk bands were often hailed as radical or revolutionary, challenging social conventions. Some bands today like to wear “revolutionary” images and take political or social stands in their lyrics, as well. But if Paul had had a band, their commitment to the greatest cause of all would have outplayed any other band in history. If Paul had had a band, they would have radically poured themselves out, sacrificially serving the cause of the Gospel.
In this final episode of the road rules series, the regulars answer your questions and as usual David brings you a random story.
Everyone in a band hates each other… at least, that’s the stereotype we often hear. How can we deal with conflict in a band or even just in a group setting? How important is unity? The regulars will answer all your questions!! Well... maybe not, but they will talk about this issue and what they’ve learned through many years of experience in ministry. And this time on David’s Random Story, you’ll get to hear about the time that a punk put a rat on the shoulder of a pastor who was trying to impress the founder of YWAM.
Is leadership really necessary? Won’t a leader hold you back? In this 4th episode of Road Rules, the regulars discuss the importance of good leadership and knowing your giftings in a team setting. And, of course, there’s also another random story brought to you by David.
Matty Mullins (Memphis May Fire) joins the podcast and shares about overcoming anxiety and being bold for Jesus.
