Faith Runs Deep and How to Share That with Karl Faase

Tina Waldrom speaks with Karl Faase about Faith Runs Deep and How to Share That.  Karl and his team from Olive Tree Media travelled Australia to unearth the stories of faith from history and today. Men and women who have been influenced by the Gospel and have gone on to influence Australia. These stories are great conversation starters that can be used when talking to friends, neighbours and work colleagues. Did you know that the Aussie Ute was originally designed for church purposes? Listen to some of the stories from Faith Runs Deep and start using them to help others connect to Christianity.

The stories of faith in Australia need to be told. Karl reminds people that a ‘fortress of memories’ needs to be built. God has done remarkable things in Australia; the stories need to be exposed and told. Using these stories in conversations with others is one way to spark conversations and share the Christian faith. Stories of people from many walks of life, who thanks to the Gospel, have a national impact in sports, politics and the overall culture of a nation.

In this episode, Karl starts by talking about the iconic car, the Aussie Ute and how it was originally built for church purposes. This story and many others were uncovered as Karl and his team researched and then travelled to interview key people in Australia.
