Andy Needham Band and Jaime Jam at FBC


I want to thank Andy Needham Band and Jaime Jamgochian for coming to FBC for a fundraising concert for Open Hearts Ministry!

I want to introduce you to Andy Needham Band, a band here in the greater Boston area, starting off as a summer camp praise & worship team and growing into a full-time ministry band with a large and growing influence. One of the things I love about their ministry is a church-base focus. Andy Needham said, “Being in a local church helped ground me in God’s passion for His people, I have always loved worship, but I needed to be reminded that when Jesus left the earth he didn’t start a camp or a band, He started the Church.”

Jaime Jamgochian comes to us from Nashville, TN, but she is a Boston-area native. A well-known Christian artist, with a passion especially for reaching teenager girls, with her Modest is Hottest campaign. She came to know the Lord at the Berklee College of Music, which completely changed her life. In addition to concerts and events, Jaime leads worship at her local church in Nashville, where she also mentors girls.

Return to Rome?

All right. Here is my first question to throw around to everyone: "Why am I not Roman Catholic?" (of course, if you are, help us understand why you are and why we should be(?)) Sounds like an easy question, but not so easy. Let me ask a few penetrating questions to get us going. These are all questions I've heard in different forms...

Does Christ not have only one church?
Does Rome not have the onlyconsistenthistorical connection to the early church?
Did not Rome determine the new Testament cannon of Scriptures?
Does not Rome have what so many evangelicals lack: mystery, awe, contemplation, etc.?
One more, does our theology go asunder so irreparably?

Consider these Evangelical favorites: J RR Tolkien, G K Chesterton, and Mother Theresa. Are they not a sterling model of Christian imagination, thinking and service?

Hope this gets some discussion going.

The 'Greatest' Theologian/Preacher/Christian Philosopher

Here's a fun little discussion for us. Who is the greatest theologian since the apostle Paul? Sounds too subjective, but here are some criteria to evaluate by:

1) Personal life - Did this person's personal character reflect his convictions effectively?

2) Breadth of Influence - How wide and long has this person's influence effected the church and the world?

3) Depth of thought - How careful, biblical, and articulate were this persons's works?

My vote to come...
