One of the brightest stars ever in the Pacific Northwest, PAT built the biggest radio station in Seattle’s history, the one every musician and DJ wanted to be on…the first in America to play a Beatles record. Its audience was 7x larger than today’s most listened to Seattle stations. He ran the country’s largest concert promotion company, booking the earth’s biggest rock stars including Elvis. Along the way his glam life was hijacked by Jack Daniels and cocaine. But, thank God, this prodigal son has recently returned home. What a story!
If you and I worked for General Motors whose mission is to make the world’s finest automobiles, it would behoove us to get on board with that as our mission too. God’s Son said He came to earth “to seek and to save those who are lost.” In other words, those who are not on board with His mission. SEAN gets it! Since 2016 his innovative, online evangelism, while saturating social media, has welcomed more than 200,000 “lost” souls to God’s family. If this continues to grow at its current, year-over-year pace of 85%, his organization, Groundwire, will have led one million people to place their faith in Jesus Christ by the end of 2022. His video commercials are being viewed some 30,000,000 times per month! More than 200,000 viewers click through to his websites, JesusCares.com and WhenLifeHurts.com, and as many as 700 of them accept Jesus DAILY!

Now, many years later, CHESTER (“CHET”) STEWART is one of his state’s best-known, widely-honored, most generous business leaders. His career positions him at a turning point in his clients’ lives. Learn how one man finds the joy of living where you’d least expect it.
You’re in a serious jam. The year is 60-ish A.D. Your name is Epaphras. Normally unflappable, you seem to be unraveling. Having exhausted all your workarounds, you sorely need been-there-done-that wisdom that you can trust. Who’s your go-to guy?
“Life is endless frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hair stylist you like.” That gem is traced to “Anonymous” who wanted to be unknown if quoted at a Bible study. Born as “Saul of Tarsus,” Paul’s nasty street cred preceded him for three decades while planting churches along the Mediterranean. While terrorizing Jesus Christ’s early converts, this well-intentioned religious hitman is supernaturally transformed. God taps the most unlikely, sincerely wrong zealot to tell the Gentile world “Messiah has come!”
In 2008 Oprah devoted all of her radio shows to teach A Course in Miracles, a book by an atheist. It claims (1) Jesus is not God, (2) Satan, evil, and sin do not exist, and (3) the Bible cannot be trusted. The author insists that Jesus dictated the book to her.
It's not easy to make a name for yourself when the person whose cleats you must fill is Sonny Sixkiller. But our keynote speaker did that in stride, setting Husky rushing records in the 1970s that were unapproachable for decades. After four years at the University of Washington, he began his all-star career in the hospitality industry, manning the front desk at Seattle's venerable
B.I.B.L.E. = Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth Four sportswriters might profile the Mariners' inscrutable right fielder, Ichiro Suzuki, from different angles -- his quirky batting style, lightning speed, flame-thrower arm, or stratospheric success at bat with the sacks juiced. Four looks, same Ichiro. The Bible's four gospel authors cover Jesus differently. Matthew does Christ as King. Mark, Christ as Servant. Luke, Christ the Son of Man (God in human flesh). John, Christ as the Son of God (the God-Man, fully human yet fully divine). Four lenses, same Jesus. John states that Jesus is God, the Key to life, the One who died that we might live forever forgiven! Either we buy John's assertion that God loves us sinners and offers us eternal life instead of eternal punishment. Or we don't. No wiggle room.
Our audacious mission is to demystify the Bible. It’s been said, “To know God, you’ve must understand the Bible. To understand the Bible, you’ve must learn about Jesus. To learn about Jesus, you must read the Gospels.”
In this book John recaps seven of Jesus’ “I am” sayings and seven miracles, like turning water into wine, feeding 5,000 people out of a lunch bucket, walking on water, healing the blind and lame. The biggie in this chapter is the pinnacle of His “God-signs,” showing His dominance over death and galvanizing His enemies’ intent to do away with Him.
A gaggle of tempting voices claws for our attention. Each wants a piece of us. Whom do you believe? Most look good. If only we had a trustworthy search engine, a lie detector to separate sincere from sham. Perhaps that’s why you’re here. Something tells you that we’re not random acts of chance, that there must be a purpose for living, an afterlife and a Master Designer.
Jesus’ confrontations with the Jewish sect of 6,000 Pharisees is turning nasty as they seek to silence Him once and for all. They strictly interpret the Law and oral traditions. Sadducees hold that God is in total charge, and man is a puppet. Essenes believe man can actually sway God’s behavior. Pharisees cede to God overarching authority to do as He pleases, while giving man his free will. Where do you come down on this?
Each time we meet I’m reminded that what we’re doing is what really matters during our time on earth. Nothing’s more life-giving than hearing God speak through His Word. “Heaven and earth will pass away but,” says God, “my Word will never pass away.” True wisdom, wrote King Solomon, is found in knowing the Bible: “Nothing you desire can compare with (it).” (Proverbs 3:15)
Today we parachute into the world of two millennia ago. Rome's fist grips tiny Palestine who prays that their Messiah will come and toss Caesar. Bitter, melancholy Tiberius is running the early Roman Empire. The governor of Judea is Pontius Pilate who handed Jesus Christ over to that blood-thirsty mob. To observe their manmade traditions, 1st century rabbis will not stoop to touch lepers, prostitutes, tax collectors -- anyone "unclean."
Does God exist? If so, what's He like? Jesus Christ claimed to be God's Son come to earth. If true, by observing Him we can get to know God. That's why John wrote this book. For three years Jesus was teaching, hanging out and doing miracles to back up His radical claims. Strangely and sadly, millions have opted not to become associated with Jesus. It seems that hearing about Him, even seeing Him is not enough. Jesus says those who come to a personal faith in Him have been drawn by His Father.
