I can't tell you how blessed I've been having this podcast. I began at Calvary Costa Mesa (my parents did marriage counseling w/Chuck, I was dedicated & baptized by him) Then we moved to Calvary Downey (Jeff has been instrumental in my growth) but there's something about Skip, his teaching is perfect for my style. With each MSG you get modern parables, lots of Jewish history & practical applications for living in today's times. And it helps that he was a former Catholic being that my husband is Catholic & for the 1st time he allows me to listen to my podcast on road trips & really enjoys them! Praise God! Ive been listening on the radio for years but Its great not having to wait for the broadcast & listen (pause & rewind for taking notes) on my own time. Even though he's many states away I consider him my pastor. My only complaint is there aren't enough studies! I'm almost caught up w/the latest sermon already, I WISH he would post some archive podcasts, in fact I'm going to pray for that, lol. My other fav is Alistair Begg. i also am growing to love Melissa Scott, you can stream her on the net but no pausing so it hard to take notes. God Bless our pastors!
