Reunion Roadmap 2/22/2020

Barbara Wilkins has had an interesting life. What would you expect from the daughter of a Florida cowboy? Handling livestock imparted many important life lessons to Barbara in her childhood, laying a foundation of faith and appreciation of God’s creation that has helped her in her journey as an intercessor. That journey lately has taken her to the intersection of the Christian and Jewish, or, as we at BYNA might say, the place where Ephraim and Judah meet. That brings us the the reason for our visit with Barbara: her calling to the Nations’ 9th of Av. What is it that drew her into this work that seeks to help us from the Christian side of the family understand our history with the Jewish people, and humbly commit to making a better future in our relationships with our Jewish brothers and sisters? As you listen to Barbara, you just might find something that resonates with your own story! 

Later in the program, Barry and David continue their discussion of prophets, this time wrestling with the issue of Self Deception. The music of Mason Clover and Will Spires completes our show with praise to our King!

This week we conclude our visit with Steve Wearp of Blessed Buy Israel. As he explains, something significant happened a few years ago that made him aware of his personal connection to the great division between Jews and Christians. As you listen, you just might hear something in Steve’s story that resonates with you as well. In other words, what is it that each one of us can do to help repair the breach between these two parts of our God’s covenant family? 

Kelly Ferrari Mills and Jimmie Black are our musical guests this week. Our midrash segment carries the title, “Exposed,” which is another way of saying, “your sins will find you out.” Listen as Barry Philips and David Jones unpack that bit of folk wisdom in light of Scripture!

Reunion Roadmap 2/8/2020

What happens when a family makes a decision to be a difference for good in the longstanding division between Christians and Jews? That is what Steve Wearp and his family have been doing for many years! Their journey had begun even before they helped establish the March of Remembrance, the US edition of an initiative that began in Germany to honor survivors of the Shoa (Holocaust) and bring healing and restoration between victims and perpetrators and their descendants. The Wearp family then took another significant step by starting Blessed Buy Israel in 2017 to stand with the Jewish people and combat the rise of anti-Semitism by the simple process of making products from Judea and Samaria available to purchase on the internet, thereby giving people around the world a way to sow directly into the families living in the Heartland of Israel. Most recently, Steve and his family have been an integral part of the Nations’ 9th of Av, a new outreach helping Christians and Messianic/Hebraic followers of Yeshua understand the history of Christian persecution of Jews, and joining with Jews to mourn on Tisha b’Av, the “Fast of the 5th Month” (Zechariah 7:1-3, 8:19), in compassion and contrition for our part in their suffering through the ages, and in commitment to heal the breach between the two halves of God’s covenant family. 

Our visit with Steve is punctuated by musical offerings from the House of Aaron and the Aleph Tav Band, and by a new midrash from Barry Philips and David Jones on “Discerning A Prophet.” Together, these messages in word and song bring us along on another challenging and uplifting journey down the highway of restoration!
