In episode 31, my dear Aunt Shirley, who plays a key role in making this podcast possible by keeping and bringing me the Romans tapes, tells the story of how Larry and Linda's influence helped her begin the reveal a dark secret she had been keeping for most of her life.
While she doesn't reveal details, Shirley talks about her sexual assault at an early age, and how Larry and Linda were one of the few people in whom she could confide, many years after the assault occurred.
You'll hear how God wins over Satan, and how Shirley was helped by both Larry and Linda, and authors Justin and Lindsay Holcomb, who wrote the gospel centered book for survivors of sexual assault titled Rid of My Disgrace.
After Shirley's tells her story, I play a tape Larry and Linda recorded and sent to Shirley, sometime in the late 80s when Shirley was 26 years old.  The tape is a heart warming mix of theology and personal encouragement, from sister and brother in law to sister, explaining the gospel with graciousness and simplicity.
"It took nearly thirty years for that seed to sprout and grow in me. All the while Larry kept teaching and preaching the doctrines of grace. He kept talking about the Redemptive story of the Bible with Christ at the center, all the time! I was thirsty and hungry for spiritual food.
He had a hope for their future that was firmly anchored in Christ's promises...Larry had his eyes fixed on Christ. He would tell me, "Linda and I are going to be just fine, just fine."
This was Larry to me. My brother-in-law made Christ visible to me. Thank you Larry. I am forever grateful." -Shirley's tribute to Larry at his funeral

In episode 29, Larry begins a new chapter in Romans.  He preaches on the first three verses of chapter 5, our trials and tribulations as Christians.
Larry's daughter and my sister Joy join me on this episode to talk about the "2nd Salvation" so to speak she experienced when listening to this sermon during an enormous trial in her life.
While she knows she wasn't literally saved a second time, she recounts how this sermon brought her out of darkness and despair, and reassured her of the love her heavenly Father had for her.
Her story spans the course of two years, and needed two episodes to tell.  Listen to part one of Joy's story now, in this episode, and then play episode 30 to hear the remainder of her story.

In episode 28, Larry continues his study in Romans, focussing on faith, in verses 18-25 of chapter 4.
After the discussion I welcome back to the podcast Daniel, and we discuss the sermon.  
The main purpose for inviting Daniel back on was so that he could share with us his study of Song of Solomon, which his teaching verse by verse, at New Covenant Bible Church.
He explains the reason why he chose to teach through Song of Solomon, and the practical application Christian families may take away from this book in the Old Testament.

In episode 27,  Larry continues teaching in Romans, explaining how law and grace do not co-exist.
Larry preaches in Romans 4:13-17, and then lists 49 Blessings that we have as Christians.
The common refrain you’ll hear throughout the sermon is:
“God calls into being, that which does not exist.”
I invite Joy and Cheryl back onto the podcast to discuss the 49 Blessings Larry lists at the end of the sermon.
While we aren’t certain, Joy and I believe Larry wrote the 49 Blessings, which can be read here.

In this first "Companion Sermon" episode, Larry preaches from Hebrews 10:14, concerning sanctification, in 2002 at New Covenant Bible Church.
He speaks of sanctification in three contexts, the first two more rare, and the third being what most Christians are familiar with when they hear the word "sanctification."
This sermon is extraordinarily special to me because in it, Larry says that he wanted all of his kids to be in church the morning he preached it, so they might hear his new take on sanctification.

In episode 24, I break away from the Romans study and go back in time 2 years to play a lesson Larry taught at a church he and another elder pastored in San Jose California.
At the end of the lesson, Larry gives his testimony.  I then welcome back Larry's daughter Joy, and Larry's oldest son John to discuss their testimonies and explain what life was like growing up in a house of grace.
