Jesus, Desire of Nations

We know our world is broken. From Jesus follower to atheist we long for some kind of rescue. And out of this longing have come hero stories; heroes who win the day; who make all the sad things untrue. But only one story delivers. Because only one hero in time and space conquered death to launch new creation.

We meet up with pastor and author Eric Eichinger, with a conversation about his new book, Lord of Legends. Eric shows how all the great hero stories long for and find their fulfillment in Jesus.  First, Eric ran from his calling to the other side of the world. Then, Perry shares how the Holy Spirit spoke to him as a teenager through Luke Skywalker.

Next, how do we know that the Jesus story is not just another work of hopeful fiction. Then, the promise of a coming rescuer was embedded in every culture at the Tower of Babel. Last, how Jesus immerses us into his story by rescuing us and making us partners with him to heal our world!

Perry LaHaie

Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.


Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
