Rather than spending money on morally-neutral merchandise, why not buy soul-building books, movies, music, and Catholic items? We’ve opened the JOE’S PEOPLE store to supply you with all the Catholic books that I actually read, recommend, and discuss on the big show. We also feature some of the movies closest to my heart, some of which I’ve promoted and screened for hundreds of people. Come and browse! No Black Friday crowds! Check us out here.
Our friend Angela will be traveling to the Holy Land soon and could use some support in prayers and donations. From one of our favorite Christian actresses:
Here is what I will be doing:
I am so excited to announce that I will be traveling to Israel in February on an Adventure of Love! I will be going with Global Celebration Ministries and during our time there, we will minister to the local refugee camp, bringing love and joy to the families and children there. We will also get to visit wounded soldiers in Tel Aviv and bring food packages to the widows, whose families have been torn apart by war. As soon as I heard about this trip, God gripped my heart and told me to go! Here is the Scripture God has laid on my heart for the trip:
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is on me; because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings to the meek; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint to them that mourn in Zion, to give to them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.” Isaiah 61:1-3

My listeners across the UK. I do like the idea of the Brits listening in to the podcast, saying “Yes, I rather quite like this Yank.”

Ok, I’m not sure if I should admit this publicly, but I might be addicted to Bad Lip Reading’s version of “Morning Dew”. It was Jen Fulwiler’s blog where I first stumbled across it, so it’s mostly her fault, I suppose. It might possibly be the best video I’ve ever seen…or not.
