264 - Third Space: Where Spiritual and Secular Intersect with Russ Matthews

Season 3, Ep. 264

Thanks for tuning into today's episode of the No Labels, No Limits podcast as we interview an interesting guest who joins us from across the pond in Australia.

Russ Matthews works as a team member of City Bible Forum, Third Space, and ABWE ministries in Sydney, Australia.

One of his key roles is quite unique, as he manages the ministry of Reel Dialogue. What does that mean, exactly? Well, he writes film reviews and articles for Reel Dialogue which are published in various publications. His passion is for film and getting conversations started on themes from visual creations. The discussions can include topics of life’s bigger questions that can include God the Bible, and Jesus.

Part of our conversation today centers around his new book, The Word Becomes Film: A Modern Day Parable That Introduces a Radically Easy Way of Talking About God's Story. We chat about the origins of the book, character development, and how we can make parallels within our own lives and gain personal wisdom through the progression of the story. Did we catch your interest? You can find the link to the book below.

Russ says, "Despite opposition and limited perspective of some, I can say that to stay true to the path you are on can help to overcome most of life's obstacles. Life has many seasons, you do not have to be limited to the one you are in currently. There will be difficulties and trials, but these make us better equipped for the future."
