Episode 106 centers on a discussion about God being in all places at the same time (omni-presence). As a result, we never truly leave His presence.
Several writers of the past have likened this to an encounter that a citizen of a kingdom would have with his king or queen in a special room designed for such meetings. A Presence Chamber would be the place of such an encounter. This analogy is useful in helping us to understand the importance of knowing that with God in Christ, we never leave the divine Presence Chamber.
This episode also feature a reading from F.B. Meyer’s book “The Secret of Guidance.” The reading is from Chapter 8 is entitled “In The Secret of His Presence.” A link to this book on the Christian Classics Ethereal Library website can be found here.

Episode 105 centers on a discussion of re-thinking the devotional practice of Quiet Time. While supporting the essence of what Quiet Time seeks to do (spend time with God in Bible intake, prayer and reflection/meditation), it challenges a legalistic and rigid approach to conducting a Quiet Time. This post developed from my thinking about an article by John Grayston, formerly of Scripture Union in the United Kingdom and his thoughts about biblical illiteracy and the future of quiet time.

Episode 103 is a supplemental podcast for the Year of Biblical Literacy. It is a reflection on the implications of Pharaoh’s command to the Israelites to manufacture bricks but to do so with straw which they find, not already supplied. Just as the Israelites were being commanded to do more with less to take their focus off God and onto Pharaoh, how should Christians think and act today while living in a culture which demands more time and attention from us? Some ideas about how to recognize this and work through it in Christ are provided within the podcast.
