My first time on CNN

Wow! It all happened so quickly. CNN called yesterday and wanted an interview with spazboy. On what? Halo 3! It seems a lot of churches are using it as an outreach. Since my good buddy and fellow Dare 2 Share associate, Lane Palmer, had been interviewed for the New York Times about the Halo 3 hubbub (Lane had written a Soul Fuel article on Halo 3) they wanted to draw me into the debate.

By God’s grace I didn’t bite.

My 3 minutes of CNN interview time focused on how to use culture to bring the gospel up. Christians have a tendency to rail on all things culture instead of using it to bring a spiritual conversation up. As for the churches that use Halo 3 as an outreach (personally I’ve not played the game) each of us stands or falls before our own Master.

I was on the Erica Hill Show and interviewed by Mike Galanos on the “Get to the Point” segment. Hopefully we’ll get a connection to a digital version of the interview at some point.

Oh, and I got to “slip in” a short gospel presentation (oops! how did that happen?)

Praise the Lord with me for this awesome opportunity!
