Chris Fabry Live! - Technology and Communication // Harvest of Rubies
Air Date June 27, 2012
Hour 1 - Technology and Communication
Chris had an experience the other day at the theater. His son really wanted to see a movie and Chris took him. There were five middle aged men sitting in front them, and all five were doing the same thing. Chris was fascinated by what unfolded in front of them and around them. It’s a phenomenon that’s telling a lot about us as a society, and sadly, a lot about us in the church. We have a conversation about it on Wednesday.
Hour 2 - Harvest of Rubies
We welcome author Tessa Afshar—born and raised in Iran, she moved to England and finally came to the United States—and came to faith in Christ. A fascinating life story—and she’s written some great stories as well—don’t miss it!
