Rank #2: This Isn't New Testament Christianity - Russ Moore

Podcast cover
Read more

Russ Moore felt God’s call to ministry at the age of 12, but by the time he was 15, he faced a crisis of faith. As he studied the spiritual landscape around him, taking the measure of how church leaders performed, he concluded that “this isn’t New Testament Christianity.”

Rather than walk away from the faith, as many young people do, Moore decided to “go into ministry and show up as myself and see what happens.” Despite his commitment to the church, Moore always seemed to end up in politics and spent time in Washington working for a Democratic Congressman from his home state of Mississippi.

Russ Moore’s career straddles the line between faith and politics and faith and culture, and in his role as President of the ERLC, he is often called upon to speak to both Christians and the world at large about the implications of everything from the Trump phenomenon to the corrosive effects of technology on families.

We are grateful to have had the opportunity to sit with Russ and draw warmth from the glow of his optimism about the church, despite a rising tide of secularism and apathy in the general culture.

Rank #17: God Saved Me For A Purpose - Phil Keaggy Pt. 1

Podcast cover
Read more

There’s a story that’s been passed around that dates back to the late 60s or early 70s where a guitar legend like Jimmy Hendrix is asked what it’s like to be the best guitar player in the world. Hendrix (or any number of other guitar titans of the era) is reported to have quipped, “I don’t know. You should ask Phil Keaggy.”

That’s the mantle Keaggy carried as his band Glass Harp gained the respect of the bands they opened for in countless gigs. That is until Keaggy put down the electric guitar for a time and took up the acoustic guitar shortly after answering the call to follow Jesus.

This week is the first of a two-part interview, and in this installment, Keaggy walks Mike through his fascinating career gently and unpretentiously dropping some pretty big names along the way.

Cultivated is a production of Harbor Media and Narrativo Group. This episode was produced by Mike Cosper, recorded by Eddie Morris, Edited by Quinnette Connor and Mixed by Mark Owens. Music for this episode is from Glass Harp and Phil Keaggy, with our theme song by Roman Candle. Special thanks to Jeremy Kinsella for making this episode possible.
