"Once we agree with God that we exist for His pleasure and His glory, we can accept whatever comes into our lives as part of His sovereign will and purpose. We will not resent, resist or reject the 'hard things,' but embrace them as friends, sovereignly designed by God to make us like Jesus and to bring glory to Himself. "

Bob Beeman: I Love That Guy

I still remember seeing his smiling face from the inside of cassette tape covers. Founder of Sanctuary Church in California, Bob Beeman became the "Heavy Metal" pastor and a lot of Christian metal bands attended his church or were sponsored by it.

Bob's in Nashville, TN now and I had the privilege of running into him at the Christian bookstore where I worked. Bob is one of those people that makes you feel important just by talking to you. Pastor Bob is one of my heroes, and this recent edition of his daily podcast/video cast (called "Pastor Bob Daily") is yet another reason why.

Thanks for sharing Phil. I too looked up to him back in the day. I remember ordering/listening to a couple of his sermons on tape back in 89. He still has that fatherly voice with a tone that says 'everything is going to be OK'. And he kept all his hair as well :)

If you have a chance watch a few of his "Pastor Bob Daily" videos at his youtube channel or website - http://www.pastorbobbeeman.com/

He's awesome. No, he's not going to be invited to speak at "Desiring God" conference. He is great at what he does, being a sweet (and true) pastoral voice to those who might not otherwise be getting one. His answers to people's questions are good.

A(stinkin')men, Pastor Bob!

I don't know him, but I liked the video.

So much Christian energy in the US is spent on sitting in front of the tube (or typing on Facebook) about what's being said on Fox News.

So little (in comparison) is being done about loving our neighbor....and I'm chief among the guilty there too.

"people that are down on their luck...people that need a friend... people that need...uh...some FOOD!"

I love that line!
