@mygospelfriends I’m listening to the 25th episode right now. Not so great, guys…

Dan: You have some explaining to do! (Is it possible to talk about this show in an acceptable way??) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzqtXU0p7Ks From the Australian Children’s TV show, Round The Twist. Round the Twist is notable for having pushed the boundaries of what is acceptable for children’s television, to the extent that the Australian Children’s Television Foundation had difficulty finding a distributor for it: according to the ACTF’s marketing Manager Jenny Buckland, “the scripts were declared ‘too rude’, ‘not for television’ and ‘outrageous'”.[2]
Some episodes include references to flatulence, defecation, urination, body odor, underwear, birth, death, nudity, incest, and genitalia.[3] However these are all used for comic effect, and the series also engages with significant personal or social issues such as environmental conservation, or relations with the opposite sex.[4] Many episodes revolve around helping restless spirits of dead people or animals find peace.[5]

Google middlesbrough parmo //: also: ramsdens is the sponsor not Harry ramsdens but a pawn broker. The nickname is boro.
Also from Chris: @mygospelfriends as soon as a brother or sister who we dislike falls we seem to forget all sin is equal and we are just as bad as them.

@mygospelfriends I’ve seen most of these, but “john daker” is new to me. The subtitles put it over the top. Can’t stop watching it. Crying.

Kirk Cameron Wants to Save Christmas, Nick

David Platt to lead IMB, Chase

“The price is certainly high for people who don’t know Christ and who live in a world where Christians shrink back from self-denying faith and settle into self-indulging faith. While Christians choose to spend their lives fulfilling the American dream instead of giving their lives to proclaiming the kingdom of God, literally billions in need of the Gospel remain in the dark”

James Mc Sorley Hi Chase, dont know the guy in question but our own pastor is moving on after over sixty years in the ministry and it was heartbreaking! I pray that the church in Brookhills as well as our own flock in Belfast are able to transition quickly and accept and help the new pastors in our respective assemblys. Looking fwd to downloading the latest podcast!

@mygospelfriends Ep. 4, I knew all the NES quotes! Your nerd cards are hereby revoked. 😉 Can’t believe no “all your base are belong to us”
@mygospelfriends To be fair, I do have geek cred: started a band doing NES covers of pop/rock music. @NotEntirelyChip
@mygospelfriends We do take requests, any song you’d like to hear done Nintendo-style?  Jesus is a Friend of Mine – Sonseed.

Ep 13 Feedback from Michael Woodard (@RMichaelWoodard)
@mygospelfriends I remember High School where someone would sneeze and 5 class clowns would alternate saying bless you.

@mygospelfriends @RichardDawkins if we use abortion to stop people’s future suffering should we all be aborted?? As we will all suffer.

UPDATE on the ‘TheTwitter’ Voting from last week

Jon Lorbacher ‏@Jon_Lorbacher
@mygospelfriends lol at the “the twitter” haters. I’m cool with it. I usually chuckle when I hear the twitter.

Jeremiah Martin ‏@jeremiahdmartin 
@mygospelfriends I love the Twitters. Keep up the good tweats!

Elijiah Thompson (Hall of Dogma)
My vote: Thine Twitters #‎KJV1611

Alyson McConnell (@alymcconnell)
No to ‘TheTwitter’. And my vote counts for 10 – because I am a spouse.

@imsuperdad I shall be forever more angered by those who do not refer to the service as “The Twitter”.  @mygospelfriends

“To every toiling, heavy-laden sinner, Jesus says, Come to me and rest. But there are many toiling, heavy-laden believers, too. For them this same invitation is meant. Note well the words of Jesus, if you are heavy-laden with your service, and do not mistake it. It is not, Go, labor on, as perhaps you imagine. On the contrary, it is stop, turn back, Come to me and rest. Never, never did Christ send a heavy laden one to work; never, never did He send a hungry one, a weary one, a sick or sorrowing one, away on any service. For such the Bible only says, Come, come, come.”
– Hudson Taylor

Chris Susskin ‏@csusskin  31m @jdavidmcconnell Caught the VERY end of the podcast. Ha. You are in good company tripping over my name. Definitely a fan of @mygospelfriends

Rachel Cathey (@journeyofchuck) Gr8 show this week @mygospelfriends! Loved your take on Driscoll and accountability in ministry! Also, mega curious about chase’s dog story!

Jonathan (@jpboogie2381) @mygospelfriends enjoyed the Driscoll episode. The band was the Safeties. Back in the Slacker 66 / Crush days.

Jones Podcasting (@jonespodcasting) (Chris Jones) @mygospelfriends I enjoy how you jump from serious to silly and back again. It relieves the tension. Great podcast! Keep it up!

Chris stuttard ‏@ChrisStuttard  7h @mygospelfriends just listened to 8,9,10. Loved your attitude towards Driscoll situation. Also batman is Armenian.
