The most entertaining and enraging stories from mythology told casually, contemporarily, and (let's be honest) sarcastically. Greek and Roman gods did some pretty weird (and awful) things. Liv focuses on Greek and Roman mythology's (mis)treatment of women, the wild things the gods did, and the all around incredible minds of the ancient world. I mean, how did they come up with this stuff? Gods, goddesses, heroes, monsters, and everything in between. Regular episodes every Tuesday, conversatio ...

Bishop Erik Varden reads the Gospel of Mark in Greek. Doesn’t a bishop have better things to do? He answers: 'No!' And continues, 'The most essential thing a bishop can do is to engage lovingly, intelligently, perseveringly with the Word of God in its most authentic expression so that it may become part of him, a word he not only preaches but, by God’s grace, embodies and carries abroad.'
 
Phaneroo is a dynamic, life transforming and generational impacting ministry with a vision to transform nations and the entire world with the Word of God.

Consequently, what we want to see in this generation is that Christians start bringing forth things that men never thought existed yet they did in fact exist.
