420 – BYO Popcorn

Thanksgiving week on WELSTech brings lots of video blessings (enjoy some popcorn while you watch) plus a great conversation with Gail Potratz on the life of a school/church tech director. We introduce a new book which helps us focus on our many reasons to be thankful, and we enjoy a taste of heaven with a special version of Jerusalem The Golden.

A special tribute:

We celebrate the life and legacy of Pastor David Witte, the voice of WELS Through My Bible series, who recently passed away.

    Doing a deep dive trying to learn more about Pastor David Witte and thus landed on this particular broadcast. I’ve so enjoyed his voice and the expectancy in my heart as the little opening music begins. It really has become an expected and nourishing way to encounter the scriptures daily.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know about your use of the Through My Bible podcast. I stand by my words from that show and continue to smile when I hear his voice each time as well!
