Mount Carmel Ministries

By Mount Carmel Ministries
Since 1938 Mount Carmel has been a place of rest, spiritual renewal, and Biblical education. Our historical roots as part of the Lutheran Bible Institute inform how we live our mission as an independent organization today. This podcast will provide free listening to all who are curious about what we teach at Mount Carmel. From historical episodes recorded in the 1970s to our most recent camps, we share it freely. We live out our mission through biblically-based, Christ-centered programming and hospitality.

7 Signs of John: Session 3: Pastor Dave Wollan
Unlike the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke, John does not record many miracles of Jesus. With each of the seven signs in John, we learn a little more about Jesus. From changing water into wine in Cana to raising Lazarus from the dead, Jesus reveals His love and power to the world. Journey through each of John’s seven signs with Pastor Dave Wollan from Faith Lutheran Church in Hutchinson, Minnesota.

--We are Family!-- "God wants relationship with us. That has always been true. You can see it in the creation story in Genesis all the way through the end of the Bible in Revelation. There are several types of relationships -- friendships, business associates, acquaintances... but none of these really capture what God is after. Instead, God thinks of and treats us as family. What might it look like to treat ourselves fully as members of the family of God? Join us as we explore together, through scripture, stories and experiences."

Jesus in the Storm: Dave Wollan
Mark 4:35-41  New International Version (NIV) Jesus Calms the Storm 35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” 39 He got up, rebuked the wind, and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” 41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”

Building Bridges: Faith's Impact on Politics: Dr. Mark Mattes: Session 6
Thomas Jefferson’s phrase “Separation of Church and State” raises our partisan blood pressure as it relates to various social and political issues of our day. Faith was vital in the formation of our nation, from the Puritans to the Enlightenment Deism of the Founding Fathers. How should Bible-centered Christians respond? Do Christians have some resources to help build bridges between people of opposite political persuasions? We will look at how our nation has become so polarized and seek to find ways faithful to our Christian heritage to help Americans be more understanding of one another. Mark Mattes is a professor of Theology and Philosophy at Grand View University.

Building Bridges: Faith's Impact on Politics: Dr. Mark Mattes: Session 1
Thomas Jefferson’s phrase “Separation of Church and State” raises our partisan blood pressure as it relates to various social and political issues of our day. Faith was vital in the formation of our nation, from the Puritans to the Enlightenment Deism of the Founding Fathers. How should Bible-centered Christians respond? Do Christians have some resources to help build bridges between people of opposite political persuasions? We will look at how our nation has become so polarized and seek to find ways faithful to our Christian heritage to help Americans be more understanding of one another. Mark Mattes is a professor of Theology and Philosophy at Grand View University.
