COMING SOON: Response to “This I Used to Believe: Evangelism gone wrong”

May 29, 2009

One of the things I love about Twitter (and pingbacks, and Google searches) is that you can find out who’s been writing about things you’ve written or things you’ve done.

Jon M. Reid is a writer, a musician, and a Christianity-focused blogger who has been doing a series of posts that deconstructed the segment I did on “This American Life” called “This I Used to Believe.”

The first two segments are linked at the bottom of his third post, which focuses entirely on the radio story, but I encourage all of you to read the entire thing anyway because yes, this is a whole and full story.

I’m also going to be writing about my responses to these pieces, but first I know I have to tell you about my recent vacation to Texas and the three friends I have who are in various stages of grief.


COMING SOON: Last Words Ministry takes on “This American Life”

May 16, 2009

I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to listen to this live because it’s going to air on the West Coast at 9 pm Pacific, but on June 13 last night the folks at Last Words Radio did a piece about my “This American Life” piece, examining the conversation and (from their perspective) where Coach Hogan’s tactics went “wrong.”

Once I’ve had a chance to listen to it, I’m definitely going to be writing about it.
