The Next Step Podcast
Season 1: When from Death I’m Free
Episode 11: “I Know that My Redeemer Lives”
Date: Easter Sunday, 2020
Guest: Visual Faith Illustrator Ann Gillaspie
Ann Gillaspie was the illustrator for Chapter 11, “I Know that My Redeemer Live,” beginning on page 107 of When from Death I’m Free: A Hymn Journal for Holy Week from Next Step Press. Ann joins author Justin Rossow as they pray, read and discuss Scripture, talk about the illustrations and the hymn verses in this chapter, and wonder together about what next step Jesus is shaping in their lives.
The episode of the podcast was recorded before Covid-19 was an international pandemic. You can tell there have been no shelter in place orders given not only because Ann and Justin are in the same room sitting at the same table, but because both of their next steps assume contact with other people in public.
Even though our next steps don’t always turn out as we imagined, the promise of Jesus that invited us into that adventure never changes.
You might want to color along as you listen; Ann will discuss her artwork on page 109, as well as the Secret Code Prayer on page 115, and the benefit she receives from slowing down and taking time with God.
We follow Jesus better when we follow Him together, so we invite you to join the Social Learning group sharing this hymn journal experience here: When From Death I’m Free Facebook Social Learning Group.
