Rad stuff coming up!
Radical Acts 2013 is all about reaching out to help and heal people. But it ain’t easy, or more of us would do it more often.
So this year Radical Acts will introduce you to some truly inspiring people. Connect with them through audio PROFILES and TAKEAWAYS. Chat with them via online comments. Ask them questions during our LIVE EVENTS — when we’ll address any challenges you may have with reaching out.
Starting September 2nd, we’ll be posting audio profiles of a few people who reach out in ways that are downright thrilling.
We’ll also post twenty-plus short podcasts featuring lessons learned when, for example,
- Julio Rivas forges an unlikely spiritual bond with a gang of thieves;
- Tricia Chantha gets too invested in trying to help a young drug addict; and
- Tom McElroy, at age 16, foils a friend’s suicide attempt through prayer.
You may never find yourself in the same situation — let’s hope not with thieves! — but the “takeaways” from these podcasts apply to all our efforts to reach out.
OK, inspired by Radical Acts, you’re now reaching out, or longing to reach out. You’re having challenges. You need HELP. Bring us your questions. Unpack your frustrations. Let’s get to a higher level on this stuff together.
BTW, every topic below can also apply to animals you may reach out to — not just people.

You want to reach out to someone who’s thought of as the “lowest of the low.” Maybe an unpopular kid, or a prison inmate, or another kind of “outcast.” But it’s WAY harder than you expected….
Valley of the Shadow
Monday, November 18, 8:30 – 9:30 PM EST
You want to reach out to someone who feels no hope. Maybe they’re crushed by a recent event, or stuck in a care facility. And maybe — maybe? — they’re starting to get you down….
Children of Light
Monday, December 9, 8:30 – 9:30 PM EST
You want to reach out to someone who’s convinced s/he can’t succeed. You know that’s not true. They rock! But they don’t get it, and every day brings them fresh disappointments….
Sound exciting? Join us for Radical Acts 2013!
