Number 30 on iTunes!

On the Poddy with Dave & Dan has made it to number 30 in the Religion & Spirituality section on iTunes!!!

We are ahead of the following:
>>> Matthiasmedia
>>> Max Lucado
>>> Greg Laurie
>>> Saddleback young adults
>>> Mark Driscoll @ Mars Hill
>>> We're only 1 off taking down Joel Osteen!
>>> I can't even see Sydney Anglicans in the top 100 anymore!

Give us one week and I'm confident we can make it into the top25 (which puts you on the front page!). Two weeks and we can maybe even make the top 20!

    Now that I've worked out how to download stuff onto my phone, I'll have to have another listen! I went jogging with my phone last week listening to a Dominic Steele sermon, but the volume was poor.

    By the way, who's Joel Osteen? That's about the 4th time I've heard his name come up in the last week. top

    i think he may have been on craig s' blog recently on the frontpage of something like BRW???? top

    yeah, Craig's blog was one place I'd recently seen him. Also saw books authored by him in a Christian bookstore in CBD I popped into last week to check out, but didn't pick up the book.

    What kind of pasta - fettucine, penne, spaghetti, lasagna??

    Is he like a Christian version of an Anthony Robbins style motivational speaker? top

    this is from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joel_Osteen

    Joel's father, John Osteen, a former Southern Baptist pastor who became Charismatic in the late 1950s, founded Lakewood Church on Mother's Day, 1959.

    Osteen's father developed Lakewood into a body of approximately 6,000 members with an active television ministry, crusades, conferences, missionary support and food distribution. He died of a heart attack in 1999. Having produced his father's television program for years, Joel Osteen--despite having preached only one time in his life, the week before John Osteen's death--succeeded him on October 3, 1999.

    Despite concerns regarding Osteen's selection (mainly due to his lack of experience in preaching and concerns about the son of a famous minister being able to "fill the shoes" of the father), Osteen's low-key, positive style resonated with crowds. Adopting the slogan "Discover the Champion in You," Lakewood eventually had to hold six weekly services in its 7,800 seat sanctuary, before moving to a new facility, the former Compaq Center which can seat over 16,000 at one time, in July 2005.

    Osteen lives in the Houston area with his wife Victoria and two children, Jonathan and Alexandra. top
