Francis Chan & David Platt

This week we talk to Francis Chan and David Platt about their new project, The Multiply Movement. The prominent authors and speakers talk about the very practical side of Jesus' desire for us to make disciples who make disciples. We also get a listener on the line to compete in a summer game, discuss the separation of church and state, and salute the queen of summer (and master of thighs), Suzanne Somers...

Question of the Week

If your summer was a movie co-starring Suzanne Somers, what would the name of the movie and the tagline be?

You and Suzanne Somers are starring in a movie about your summer. So we need to know the name of the movie and the marketing tagline for this epic blockbuster.

Well, I'm being deployed this summer and while in actuality it should be a fairly benign deployment it will be slightly dramatized for the movie.

Movie Name: Red Hot Heat
Tag Line: "Summer is just too hot for war"

Susan, playing herself, is on mission to convince the local populace of the dangers of water fluoridation. This gets her into a lot of trouble as the local populace is well informed of the cost effectiveness and public benefits of water fluoridation. Not wanting an international incident and to prevent summer from coming to an abrupt end, for Somers, the president dispatches an elite troop of soldiers to extract her.

I may have said too much.
