When asked “who was your most exciting interview?” I’m going to have to say hands down it was this week’s guests Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.

Arguably the most powerful producer couple in Hollywood, Mr. and Mrs. Burnett swept us off our feet with their grace, intensity, and focus!  They were on-set to help promote their newest series The Bible which begins airing March 3, 2013 - next weekend on the History Channel.  Watch as they tell Context TV about their sincere walk of being followers of Jesus and producers who took a great leap of their finances and faith to bring the world the best-ever depiction of The Bible on History TV

 

Mark Burnett and Roma Downey treated our team to four dozen “Bible” cookies with this note:
 “Thanks so much for putting together a great show – you guys are top notch." Mark and Roma

Just discovered your show today while scanning channels. Watched this interview. I was thinking of watching The Bible miniseries before and now I definitely will. I like the choices they made for the production, I think they will make it more compelling, even to non-believers.

Tried calling your feedback line but it wasn't taking anymore messages so i called your 1866 number and reported it to them.Now am here writing to let you know that am watching your interview with Roma and Mark and am very excited. I believe I have watched every Biblical show or movie out there and some over and over year after year. Without a doubt in my mind, I can't wait for this show to air. I would love to say thank you to all of you for putting this story together and all I can say the longer the series the better.Around Easter is a great time to show a movie or series like this. I will be siitting here in March waiting to see this EPIC picture. Regards DeDee Morie Edmonton Alberta T6E 1H8

It was good to see photos of this interview. When I first heard the movie THE BIBLE WAS COMING 3.3.13 I decided to write angel Monica Roma Downey and tell her abou an Arena in Kitchener. I can't paythe rental fee but it is available. Sent information about a community event with everyone welcome We can only organize something like this with more interested people and volunteers. In my Christmas 2009 Newsletter I quoted Erwin McManus My dream has never been to be rich but to be a benefactor of God. “There isan interesting relationship between the word generous & the word generative, & my challenge to you; you will never have community that’s generous until you have an environment that’s generative until you begin to unleash the divine capacity the talent the gifting the intelligence the passion in every human being but it starts at the moment you stop trying to convince people to buy into your vision & just follow you & you become visional leaders. Creates environment where you’ll begin to see the greatest movement of generosity you could have ever imagined. At the end of this great generosity wisdom courage & we begin to look like Jesus. His name is glorified & honored & we become magnets that draw others into the presence of God. UPRISING: Erwin McManus PEACE, [SHALOM] Mike Wolf
