Talk church is better than talk radio. Its talking points are about the living, resurrected Jesus Christ.
Sit-back-and-listen-church makes people passive. Open line, talk church makes people powerful in God as they show and tell what God has done on an open mike!
Talk church isn’t new. Here’s a quotation where John Miley described talk church in 1854 (as he wrote about Methodist class meetings):
“Should there not be regularly appointed times when those that fear God may meet together and speak to one another? Times when all may participate in the (church) meeting? The habit of speaking on the subject of religion, of giving expression to religious feelings and purposes, will increase people’s confidence in the cause of Christ. To speak of our faith is to secure its increase. To declare our decision for Christ and His cause is more fully to determine and settle that decision. To give expression to our love to God is to kindle its fires anew and to cause it to grow with fervor.
