In the Studio: Beyond Today

October 14, 2010

The Beyond Today team was together again on Wednesday and Thursday this week to begin production on several new programs. Each morning began with a production meeting with the staff. These meetings give the opportunity for all to mull over the program scripts. Also, during the meetings, ideas, suggestions and edits are offered to help improve the program’s effectiveness. It’s also a time to rehearse them and prepare for the panel discussions.

After a warm lunch, the full team headed to the studio for the actual recording session. Two programs were recorded on Wednesday. Darris McNeely hosted the first program titled “How Big is Your God?” It’s focus was on how to prove God’s existence. The next program, “The Proof of Prophecy,” was hosted by Steve Myers and centered on understanding the prophecies of Daniel 2 and 7 to verify the authority of God’s Word.

Thursday’s program hosted by Gary Petty was titled, “Why Do Governments Fail?” Mr. Petty made the point that man’s inability to rule himself can only be solved when Jesus Christ returns and establishes the Kingdom of God.

  1. Some one gave me a card. It said Don’t tell God how big your problems are. Tell your problems how big your God is.
    Keep up the good work. I know we will be blessed for our efforts. You spreading the word and us praying for fruits.
    Together we can get it done. Much thanks Fran Schuster

  2. Hmmmm — does a “warm lunch” lead to better programs than a cold one? Have we researched this? 🙂

  3. My enthusiasm for the Programs is dampened by there being no mention of prayer for God’s guidance in the preparation or production of the Programs. These emails are from Christians to Christians, and our heavenly Father should be acknowledged and honored by humbly seeking His favor, guidance and power in producing the fruit from these Programs as He wills and directs.

    With love in Christ Jesus,
    Ken 🙂

    • Ken, please be assured that prayer is given and God’s guidance sought throughout the process. We prayed on six different occasions as a group for this week’s Beyond Today recordings—plus personal, private prayer beyond this.
