Fresh Air (D1962)
Confused about who the Holy Spirit is, what the Holy Spirit does and why it matters? You’re likely not alone. This book and DVD by Jack Levison, Professor at Seattle Pacific University, clarifies 2,000 years of history/thought/assumptions/teachings about the Holy Spirit. Endorsed by eminent theological thinkers/writers such as Eugene Peterson, Scot McKnight, Phyllis Tickle, and N.T. Wright, this resource shows that the Holy Spirit is about more than spiritual gifts and fruits – it’s about the highest human aspirations and deepest human breaths. It’s about being infused with the Holy Spirit for an inspired life.

Change the World (D2022)
Making a positive difference in a hurting world, serving the least, lost, and lonely in Jesus’ name, spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ, isn’t that what Christians are supposed to do? Isn’t that what Mission is about? This study will guide church leaders into the work of global mission by helping them find ways to use all opportunities and aspects of church life from worship to education to fellowship to budgeting to facilities for missional outreach.


Forged by Fire (D4740)
How we tell a story matters because stories are how we define ourselves. Forged by Fire is a collection of five stories about ethnic groups that have faced or are facing injustice, persecution, and/or marginalization in the United States. These stories, however, are sprinkled with hope as evidenced by the reaction and action of United Methodist Church clergy and members on behalf of those groups.

When Christians Get It Wrong (D4225)
Young adults seem to have opted out of Christianity and the Church in large numbers these days. Why? If asked, they give several reasons, but the most important one is that they don’t see many Christians being truly Christian. Young adults don’t have a problem with Jesus – just with those who claim to follow Jesus – yet live in ways that don’t represent who Jesus is and how He wants His follower to be. Specific attitudes and behaviors young adults mention are Christians being judgemental, hypocritical, condemning other people’s faiths, rejecting science, injecting politics into faith, and being anti-homosexual. In this DVD, Adam Hamilton tackles these issues and addresses the “hows” and “whys” of Christians getting it right (and wrong) when it comes to representing Christ in the world.

Ian McKnight serves as the interim Regional Media Center Manager.
