Episode 20 Peter Takes The Helm
In this episode we look at the the moment where the apostle Peter rises to assume the leadership of The Following. As we observe Peter learn and lead we will get a clearer sense of what it means to be in The Following. How did Peter show those who " have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him." That's important because that is us.

After Pasta-A conversation with Seth Lester
Our son Seth dropped around for pasta after church. I used the opportunity to have a brief chat about The Following. Seth is one of the smartest, well read and theologically formed people I know. He takes after his mother. I asked him to give some thoughts about the challenge of trying to get back and behind the 2000 years of commentary and religious forms and imagine ourselves standing shoulder to shoulder with the first "followers". Remember we now have an email address if you would like to get in touch. email@example.com

Episode 12 The Long Game
What is “the Following”. “The Following” is a way of envisioning your life in Christ. More particularly, “The Following” pictures our participation, with all the people of God of every age, as we daily respond to the call of Jesus, Follow Me." Jesus' resurrection proved he had the power over sin and death and validates His claim to be Lord and King. He invites us on a journey as one who follows. He is the Leader. Our Christian life reflects the choice we made to follow Him is what places us in "The Following,"

This begins with an explanation of the new podcast name "The Parkinson's Progress". That is the broadcast's name and it is presenting "the Following." That is followed with a brief look at the challenges we may find along the way. The music, is again, from Seth Lesters/ all rights reserved. I posted the following in Facebook I put it here because not everybody is on Facebook. Usually I do all I can to edit out Parky's influence, this time I didn't. Pray for me.. I have always been one of those people who puts bad news in my pants pocket and then throw the pants away when they need a wash. Around twelve years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. I told a very small number of people in Oklahoma and close family. My mother’s siblings, if you tried to tell them bad news, would likely reply, here let me have those pants and I’ll burn them for you. Absolutely fine with me. I told virtually no one in New Zealand, not even the church I was pastoring. The fact was that it really changed everything. From that first day, every other day has involved grabbing Kitty and dancing with Parky. That dancing recently led to me to begin a new facet in ministry. Today I’m launching a podcast based ministry called, ‘The Parkinson’s Progress.” It will be a Jesus based ministry and not a Parkinson’s based ministry. I was going to call it “In Spite of Parkinson’s.” Kitty wisely suggested that wasn’t the right tone. The truth is behind God, Kitty, the Kids and until two days ago the Thunder, Parkinson’s is the most domineering influence in my life. There you have it. You can help us by passing on the podcast “Timothy Lester’s The Following.” Blessings-Timothy
