I long to see you | Bruce Marchiano on portraying Jesus | PureFlix The Encounter | Catching up on global mission news
“I long to see you” are the words and the sentiment of the Apostle Paul to the Saints in Rome in the first century (Romans 1:11). We are pricked afresh the words as we consider all those familiar people and places we long to see but cannot because of the global pandemic. Carmen commends the reading of Romans 1:1-12 and then the doxology in Romans 16:25-27.
Bruce Marchiano has portrayed Jesus in more films than any other actor. He joins Carmen for a conversation about faith, the Bible, getting to know Jesus and portraying him in The Encounter. Seasons 1 and 2 are streaming on Pureflix.com this week.
In the second half, Carmen catches up with Ruth Kramer from Mission Network News on how Christians around the world are responding to the changes wrought by the coronavirus.
