Beginning this week, CHRISTIAN STANDARD is offering a new, free monthly radio program available to you via the web at BlogTalkRadio.com.

Log on and listen in to “Beyond the Standard” this Thursday, May 23, at 11 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time to see what I mean.

Listeners that day will hear and interact with three contributors to our website. (Each of them also wrote for the May issue of our monthly print magazine.)

Blog-Talk_speakers_JN2bGeorge Ross, North Vernon, Indiana, talks about developing disciples, regardless of their past or the challenges of their current situation. He”s demonstrating a refreshing mixture of grace and truth as he discusses the relationship between sin and discipleship.

Tim Harlow, Orland Park, Illinois, has a new answer to “What Would Jesus Do?” It”s in the example of Dan Cathy, who reached out to gay activist Shane Windmeyer in the midst of the Chick-fil-A gay marriage flap. We”ll talk with Tim about how and why all of us might follow Cathy”s example.

Brian Mavis, Longmont, Colorado, proposes a new way to evaluate the ministries we lead. His question: are our activities, programs, and initiatives transactional or transformational? He offers a simple chart that can help every church leader move ministry to a new level. He wrote about this at our website. We”ll talk with him about it Thursday!

This hour-long program is just another way CHRISTIAN STANDARD hopes to help you. Every month we”ll go “beyond” what”s posted at our site or published in our magazine in our ongoing mission to serve the church and encourage church leaders. Added comments, unvarnished opinions, and the chance for you to ask your questions””that”s what we”ll offer in these monthly web-based dialogues.

Remember, the program is free, so encourage others to listen. You might decide to get together with other leaders and continue the discussion after our program is finished.

Follow this link, this Thursday, May 23, 11 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time.

We look forward to welcoming many of our readers to go “Beyond the Standard” with us.
