On this week’s podcast, singer/songwriter & worship leader Phil Wickham stops by for a live, acoustic, in-studio performance. He plays us two songs from his brand new album, “The Ascension,” and you can watch the video of one of his performances below. We also talk to Jeremy Courtney, founder and executive director of the Preemptive Love Coalition, and author of the new book Preemptive Love: Pursuing Peace One Heart at a Time. He’s doing some life-changing work in Iraq, and you won’t want to miss his story. And it wouldn’t be a podcast without the latest from Stallone & Schwarzenegger, teaching Jesse the importance of sportsmanship, and awarding Nic Cage a global actor award…

In 140 characters or less, tell us the plot to the new Stallone/Schwarzenegger film, “Escape Plan.”

The movie isn’t out yet, but that doesn’t matter. Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger have teamed up with Jim Caviezel (you probably know him as “Jesus” from Mel Gibson‘s “Passion of the Christ”) for a new movie called “Escape Plan.” And this week we want you to tell us – in 140 characters or less – the plot to this movie. We’ll read the best plots on next week’s show, and we’re going to take our favorite response and send that person a copy of Jeremy Courtney’s incredible new book, “Preemptive Love.”
