Steve’s Talks & Real Audio

I gave a parish mission and the folks said this was the best of my three talks. You can now purchase it on MP3. CD audio disk coming soon.

This is no warmed-over churchy homily on stewardship and tithing. This is about YOU, your life and your commitments.

Our time is short, our lives are fragile and last time I checked, nobody get’s out alive. Are you a disciple of Jesus Christ? Have you offered everything to God?

Are you a true follower of Christ—even to the point of martyrdom? This presentation with open your eyes and make you take inventory of your life. Prepare to be rekindled and inflamed for God.

Atheism is growing in America and around the world. But is there a good reason for its popularity? Do they know something we don’t know — or do they just not want some supreme being or a “God” to tell them what to do and not to do?

Is it reasonable to be an atheist? Which takes more faith: atheism or theism (belief in a God)?

I gave a talk a while ago called “Atheism: What You and Your Kids Need to Know.” We will eventually have this talk for sale on our site. The talk was fun and hard-hitting. In a simple way I helped the audience understand the reasons and implications for atheism and theism. 

OK, you are the detective and you have clues. There are very few possible options so it is really quite easy. My 3-page chart below helps you work through the clues. I used this chart in my talk to help people look at the clues and decide for themselves. Hope you find it helpful.  (To have this talk at your parish or conference, visit www.InviteSteve.com)

First aerial photo of Jerusalem

In Rochester Hills I will be giving a talk I usually give overlooking Jerusalem from the south. I tell the story of salvation history from Adam and Eve until today, emphasizing the life of Christ. It is great to see the whole story right before your eyes!

Tom Govern has joined up multiple times on pilgrimages and asked, “Have you ever recorded that talk?” I said, “No.”

So he invited me to his parish tonight to extend my talk from 20 minutes to one hour. I will record it and make it available for sale at a later date. I prepared these two pictures for everyone to use as a reference, to simulate standing on the promenade in Jerusalem looking north over Jerusalem.

Yesterday I gave another new talk at the Midwest Apologetics Conference which I will soon make available. it was entitled “The Church, the Priesthood and Confession.”
