#46 The Reformed Presbyterian Church in North America and Sexual Orientation

On this broadcast, we sat down with Howard Huizing and Ken Smith, who were on the committee of the RPCNA that discussed and drafted the Contemporary Issues on Sexual Orientation report for the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America. This was a very important discussion given the impact of this issue on the church today. In this discussion we covered the bulk of this report including the all important section regarding “pastoral implications.” The report can be purchased here: The Gospel and Sexual Orientation

#47 – The Angel of the Reformation

For this program, we interviewed Tom Ertl, president of Zurich Publishing, on this book: Pierre Viret: The Angel of the Reformation. This was an excellent discussion about a man who is not as well-known as Calvin and Luther (and others). Yet, Viret was very influential in the life John Calvin. The book's author, R.A. Sheats, resides in Florida. She is currently engaged in the translation of Pierre Viret’s original works from 16th century.

#48 – ARP General Synod Report

Our guest for this broadcast was GPTS Board Chairman Jeff Kingswood, moderator of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church General Synod. We discussed news and events related to the ARP, particularly items considered at the 2013 General Synod. Mr. Kingswood is the pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church in Woodstock, Ontario.
