From the Faith in a Fresh Vibe Podcast
Episode #4 – FAITH IN FRESH VIBE PODCAST featuring Riley Rossmo. Riley is a professional illustrator who is currently working with DC Comics on such projects as Batman, Wonder Woman, and Martian Man. It’s easier if you just visit the DC page to see how many books he’s recently completed. His past projects with Image Comics include Green Wake, Rebel Blood, Proof, Drumhellar, and Cowboy Ninja Viking. The last one is the movie option we talk about mid-way.
In this episode we begin by tracking the career of Riley and analyze the process of making it big.

An article over at Christianity Today drew my intention as it connects to the central thesis in my book, Thrive. "Bonhoeffer Convinced me to Abandon my Dream," reflects on contemporary church leadership trends through the lens of Bonhoeffer's book, "Life Together".*...
Thrive. Ideas to lead the church in post-Christendom.
“Thrive”, is a guide to help unlock features in you, and your church, to emerge as leaders and co-creators in our cities, neighborhoods, and beyond. With the increasing number of people claiming no religious affiliation, it may be surprising to learn core values like purpose, justice, spirituality, and love remain important. The stage is set.
