Thanks for listening to Signposts. I mentioned previously that I’ve launched a new project called the Russell Moore Podcast. As a bonus for Signposts listeners, I wanted to share a preview of the series in Genesis, which is the series on the new podcast. Here’s the first episode of that series, which I’m calling “First Word.” — In my new podcast, we are going to start by journeying through Genesis. I’m calling this series “First Word: The Book of Genesis and the Kingdom of Christ.” In today’s text, we cover Genesis 1:1-3. This is a short passage of Scripture, but there is so much to unpack that sets the stage for the rest of the storyline of the Bible. Join me each week as we journey through Genesis and see what this first book of Scripture reveals about the Kingdom of God.  Genesis 1:1-3 English Standard Version (ESV) 1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. 3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. I hope you’ll subscribe to the new podcast and leave a review or a comment. The post Preview: First Word appeared first on Russell Moore.
In the Russell Moore Podcast, I will be teaching through books of the Bible (the thing I miss most since entering this new role), as well as reviving some older podcast topics. One of these is “Questions and Ethics” where I answer your questions about moral decisions you or those you know might be facing. Another is “The Cross and the Jukebox” which explored religious themes and cultural currents in country music. I hope you’ll subscribe and leave a review or a comment. The post Announcing My New Podcast appeared first on Russell Moore.
In this episode of Signposts, I am joined by Governor Bill Haslam, the former governor of Tennessee. In this conversation we talk about leadership and decision-making, criminal justice reform, handling approval and disapproval, and how his faith informed his work as a governor.
