Welcome to the new Two for Thursday inaugural edition post.  From this Thursday and every Thursday afterwards, I hope to bring you at least two sources of information found on the web that will encourage, amuse, and educate us all as we continue on our straight, narrow, and sometimes crooked, path of following Jesus.  These resources may be in the form of podcasts, websites, Facebook pages, YouTube, or other articles that fit the purpose of this segment.  I will do my best to vet them out, but please be advised that I do not necessarily agree with all content presented on those sites.

For today’s two resources, I’d like to present two podcasts that you may or may not be familiar with.  The first podcast is one that I just learned of during the past week: Redeeming Productivity.  The podcast also has a website of the same name, and the description of the content says the program/site is “A weekly podcast where we talk about technology, techniques, and theology in the light of Scripture, to help Christians get more done and get it done like Christians.”  I’ve actually listened to the last four episodes, and I particularly like Essential Ingredients of a Great Morning Routine.

My second podcast is more for entertainment value, and I’ll admit that the content may not always be void of crude references or language, but for the most part, many of us admire Mike Rowe of “Dirty Jobs” and “The Deadliest Catch” (narrator) fame.  He holds to traditional values of hard work, commitment, and honesty, which I find refreshing in today’s culture.  His podcast is called The Way I Heard It.  The description of the podcast says “All good stories have a twist, and all great storytellers are just a little twisted. Join me for a different take on the people and events that you thought you knew, from pop culture to politics, Hollywood to history… The Way I Heard It is a series of short mysteries for the curious mind with a short attention span.”  There is also a disclaimer that states: “Each episode of The Way I Heard It is a true story about a real person, place, or thing. With respect to the facts, I try to be as accurate as possible. However, the Internet is full of conflicting accounts, and it’s entirely possible you might hear me say something about a person or an event that contradicts something you heard or read elsewhere. If so, feel free to bring any discrepancy to my attention. Just remember – I’m not wrong. It’s just the way I heard it…”

So there you have it.  Today’s post is short and sweet, but I hope that you’ll find value in it.  Also, if you have the time, please drop a comment to let me know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by!
