Creating a Learning Network for Community Builders!
I am committed to starting each of my shows with an opening prayer and devotional. I am "wired" as a Christian, but aim to be inviting to ALL.
I can incorporate a Kingdom Insight segment into the show. Mp3 messages can be pre-recorded and played on the show and/or live guest segments can be done.
The main purpose of my show is to prayerfully promote "Palin" politics, and help to be a voice from the "choir" to the rest of the nation/world. I believe the state of our nation will stir many to seek the Lord, and my hope is that my show will help to serve Him as a gateway for others to enter into loving and serving God and country.
My show contributor, Julie Nazarian, is already a huge prayer warrior by nature and provides the devotions/prayers for the show each week. She is a pastor's wife and already has a full plate, so I don't know exactly how to bridge her efforts without causing her any extra burden.
I am also working on having the show audio podcasts set to slideshow "movies" so they can be posted on YouTube. This type of audio/visual imagery can also be used to reach and inspire the YouTube audience.
Currently, I post the podOmatic version of the show as a "welcome mat" to new members on Team Sarah (starting up on Patriotic Resistance also) and this is generally warmly received. All that is needed for podOmatic is an mp3 file. Perhaps this is a way to develop a Kingdom Insight welcome message that is not only easy to post but easy for those who receive it to pass along as well. It will also automatically make the podcast available through Podcast.com.
These are my "idea" nuggets I offer up:) Please do not feel obligated to accept any of my ideas. I'm still learning about the Vine:)
Having said that; I will be out of the country for the next month and plan to return Mar 18. Until then, my internet access will be minimal:) Richard Frattone is my co-host, and he can help coordinate anything you may be interested in for the show while I'm gone.
My main goal/strategy is to manifest the Kingdom of God which is righteousness, peace and joy in the spirit. We can not perfect flesh, nor do we wrestle against flesh and blood. The rightly divided word is very effective and powerful to the pulling down of strongholds. We are to do the work of Christ and even greater, which is teaming with God in being powerful in action. Within that framework of action is earnest prayer by the righteous man/woman of God, which is the right direction, in Christ. That is real power. "God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the power that works in us." Eph. 3:20 That power is the resurected power of Jesus Christ, who sits on the right hand of God, making intercession for us. This is a wonderful image we all must grasp and not let it go, to see past the problems of this world. We must see ourselves as world over comers. Fearless!
My goal & purpose is to reveal Christ. Truly Christ, not a religious figure but the person Christ, the Savior Christ. I am begging the Lord for an ability to simply reveal Him in a simple, irrefutable way that He is who His Word says He is. My passion is to cut through the wall of lies the enemy has built around our perception of who He is and expose all that I am capable of to Him. To do this, I need to know Him intimately myself. I want to open my mouth and trust the Lord to fill it! I want to be an instrument used by Him to bring true honor and glory to His name! I want to be used to set captives free and open blind eyes! I want people to realize our God is not a far off God who wants to cast judgment on us, He wants to reveal Himself so that we can avoid judgement by receiving Christ as our personal Lord & Savior! I want to reveal what true repentance means. I want to expose what the love of a heavenly Father is. I want to be used to disciple others to real relationship with Him. To learn to pray, to trust and to believe and they in turn to do the same!
Juanita you are absolutely correct that we are quite often preaching to the choir....I know I am working on narrowing down my involvement in so many groups to be able to concentrate more on the area of my passion, giftings, and abilities. blessings,

I'd like to see a group of intercessors who will form a group and then visit and post prayer/encouragement on various blogs, threads and comment walls.
TheVine has been proven in 'real life'... if we can model and prove it on the web, we can multiply the number of disciples
We need to build the number of committed 'warriors' -- that means connecting with people on this and other sites. Building a web or relationships and helping move more and more into effectiveness. Too many people are 'preaching to the choir!"
