  • Rob Bell — New York Time's Bestselling Author of How to Be Here: A Guide to Creating a Life Worth Living
    The popular pastor and New York Times bestselling author of Love Wins and What We Talk About When We Talk About God shows us how to pursue and realize our dreams, live in the moment, and joyfully do the things that make us come alive. Each of us was created for something great—we just need to figure out what it is and find the courage to do it. Whether it’s writing the next great American novel, starting a business, or joining a band, Rob Bell wants to help us make those dreams become reality. Our path is ours and ours alone to pursue, he reminds us, and in doing so, we derive great joy because we are living our passions. How to Be Here lays out concrete steps we can use to define and follow our dreams, interweaving engaging stories, lessons from biblical figures, insights gleaned from Rob’s personal experience, and practical advice. Rob gives you the support and insight you need to silence your critics, move from idea to action, take the first step, find joy in the work, persevere through hard times, and surrender to the outcome. Like Stephen Pressfield’s classic The War of Art, How to Be Here will inspire readers to seek the lives they were created to lead.

  • Christy Beam — Portrayed by Jennifer Garner in MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN
    Miracles From Heaven (in theatres now) is produced by T.D. Jakes, DeVon Franklin and Joe Roth; the same team who produced Heaven is For Real, and is being distributed by Sony Pictures Entertainment in association with AFFIRM Films, known for faith-and-family hits such as SOUL SURFER, COURAGEOUS and RISEN. Miracles from Heaven is based on the incredible true story of the Beam family and the book of the same name by Christy Beam. When Christy (played by Jennifer Garner) discovers her 10-year-old daughter Anna, has a rare, incurable disease, she becomes a ferocious advocate for her daughter’s healing as she searches for a solution. After Anna has a freak accident and falls three stories, a miracle unfolds in the wake of her dramatic rescue that leaves medical specialists mystified, her family restored and their community inspired. *Christy Wilson Beam is the author of MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN: A Little Girl, Her Journey to Heaven, and Her Amazing Story of Healing. She was born and raised in Abilene, Texas and graduated from Hardin Simmons University with a degree in Education and specialization in Reading. Christy is happily married to her husband, Kevin, and mom to three beautiful, amazing girls! Christy and her family currently reside near Burleson, Texas where they are grateful members of Alsbury Baptist Church. Christy and her family witnessed a live miracle through their daughter Annabel. It is because of God’s unending mercies and faithfulness that Christy felt the story of this miracle must be told. Christy’s Message: “This journey has taught me to remember that no matter how hard things get, I am now and have been BLESSED beyond measure and for that I am so GRATEFUL! I have always been passionate about reading and developing readers which has led me to write my first book and share God’s message. The message I want to share is to stay faithful to God in all times whether it be trials and tribulations or seasons of blessings because God is FAITHFUL!”

  • This Week's Recording Artist: Jacob Moon
    Every artist starts out with heroes. But not every artist gets asked by their heroes to join them, as artists, on their stage. It's a compliment that Jacob Moon keeps getting from the musicians who have inspired him since he started as a singer-songwriter out in Hamilton, Ontario. Artists like Rush, Marillion and Gordon Lightfoot have taken a shine to Moon's renditions of their songs and have lavished him praise and a spotlight that has gained him international attention. It is these inventive covers that draws the fans in, but it's Moon's original material and his compelling live show that make them pull up a chair. Ron Sexsmith has said: "Jacob Moon is an exceedingly gifted and watchable performer....seems completely at home on stage" and Danny Miranda (bassist for Queen) concurs "Tremendous command of the instrument...amazing voice. I can honestly say that I am overwhelmed by his music". Jacob Moon is known for his giftedness as a singer, songwriter of award-winning pop and folk songs. He is also a master of the art of ‘live looping’, a performance style where he records what he’s playing in real time and layers sound on sound to make one guitar sound like an orchestra.

    This Week on The Pub Crawl: Tal Bachman & Jerry Agar

    1/ Is extending grace to Rob Ford after his death hypocritical or the right thing to do?
    Toronto's media seemed to gush about a man they used as sarcastic news fodder for so long. Is that hypocritical or graciously Canadian/classy? Apparently, this was a man who subjected his family to some not so great treatment. Does that side of a Rob Ford get swept under the carpet now that he's sadly passed at the age of 46? I guess we all say nice stuff at funerals, but should he be honoured as opposed to simply remembered? What is grace?

    2/ What's the REAL question behind the Ghomeshi trail?
    CBC icon Jian Ghomeshi has been found innocent of all charges against him. (four counts of sexual assault and one count of choking) Lawyers have praised the decision even amidst a groundswell of #IBelieveSurvivors protest. Is this simply “battle of the sexes” played out in an extreme and public forum? Oscar Wilde said “Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.” Or is it just an isolated incident of a bad man doing bad things to women?

    3/ Who would you rather have lead the fight against ISIS? Hilary or Trump?
    If the American election comes down to:
    A/ a “political woman” on the inside
    B/ a “misogynistic man” on the outside
    Who would you vote for when it comes to protecting Canada from terror? ('Cause our Prime Minister Justin might need a really big brother!)
