Shame and Guilt in Psalm 32–Roche Coleman

Dr. Roche Coleman

Roche Coleman is Senior Pastor of the Impact Church in the Woodlands.  He is a frequent patron at the library; in fact, he just finished his PhD at the University of Pretoria spending a good bit of time studying and writing at the Lanier Theological Library.  He joins David Capes on “The Stone Chapel” to talk about his ministry and to talk about his dissertation which we think soon will become a book.  Shame and guilt are “strange emotions” according to Dr. Coleman precisely because they go against the grain of the imago dei(image of God) in us.  We are made for honor and dignity, yet we find shame and guilt to be a debilitating duo when it comes to our lives.  Psalm 32, a Davidic psalm, is written against the backdrop of a time when the king faced soul-crushing guilt over his sin.  But even as it begins in pain; it ends in joy.  For those who struggle with the weight of sin, shame, and guilt, this podcast is for you.

“Then Sings My Soul”–Robert Morgan

Robert Morgan, Teaching Pastor,
The Donelson Fellowship

Robert Morgan, teaching pastor at the Donelson Fellowship in Nashville, TN, has authored more than twenty books.  He lectured at the Stone Chapel on August 21, 2021. While at the library, he talked with David Capes on “The Stone Chapel Podcasts” about his series, Then Sings My Soul published by Thomas Nelson, particularly the third volume in that series. Morgan has been dubbed “the dean of American hymnody” by our own Dr. Capes and is doing more than anyone we know to promote the singing of music old and new in our churches. Older people, he says, need to sing the latest music, and young people need to sing the legacy music. Rather than segregating traditional and contemporary services, which effectively creates different congregations, Morgan advocates for intergenerational worship and training young and old alike to appreciate the music o.

Mark through Old Testament Eyes

Andy LePeau

Andy LePeau has been in academic publishing for many years with InterVarsity Press.  He is also a talented writer and the author of a new book with Kregel Academic entitled Mark through Old Testament Eyes.  He serves as series editor for this new background and application commentary called “Through Old Testament Eyes” and stops by to talk with David Capes on “The Stone Chapel” about the series and about some of the things he discovered about Mark’s Gospel after teaching it for over fifteen years. The book begins: “The New Testament writers were Old Testament people.”  He goes on to demonstrate the many ways the Old Testament shaped the minds and hearts of the first Christ followers. He estimates that 90-95% of the Gospel is clarified when we understand the Old Testament view of the God and his people.  It is a terrific book and an impressive series.  In case you were wondering, you can find it at the Lanier Theological Library.  To learn more about Andy, go to his blog “Andy Unedited”: www.andyunedited.com
