The podcast began as a way of preparing for Anthony's one-man show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. It was a solo project where Anthony would talk out loud about various subjects. Unsatisfied with the initial results, Anthony decided to change to a history focus, and invite other comedians to listen to the stories. Gareth Reynolds was the first guest; after his performance, Anthony decided to keep him as the only permanent guest. Anthony was inspired by the book A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn because it taught him that the history he was taught as a child was full of lies

It's that time of year and during this holiday season "A Night of Hope" may just be the family or friends outing that you're looking for this weekend (December 15, 2018).

"We are so excited to be gearing up to bring our home to yours this Christmas for the Night of Hope tour. With the entire family in tow it will for sure be a night to remember. From classic Christmas Carols to originals from “The Thrill of Hope” I want to invite you and your family to pause and set our hearts around the Savior and the season together this Christmas. From my family to yours – we can’t wait to see you there!" says Christy Nockels. USA, LLC

Christy Nockels has long had a huge appreciation for music and its role in the kingdom of God. As a worship leader for many years, she’s seen first hand how music can usher people into the presence of God in a powerful way. On her newest album, Let It Be Jesus, Christy’s prayer is to further explore biblical truths that elevate our worship and bind us our hearts closer to our

The daughter of a pastor, born in Fort Worth and raised in Oklahoma, Christy grew up singing in church. In 1993 at the Christian Artists Seminar in Estes Park, Colorado, she met her husband, Nathan, and they went on to record an independent record with fellow worship leader Charlie Hall under the name Sons & Daughters. This partnership led to an invitation from Louie Giglio to participate in the first ever Passion Conference in Austin, Texas.

Christy’s voice gained a national platform when she and Nathan formed the duo Watermark, recording four acclaimed albums before that musical season ended, paving the way for Christy’s solo career. In 2008, the Nockels family moved to Atlanta to become part of Passion City Church where they served on the worship team with Chris Tomlin and Kristian Stanfill.

The following year, Nockels released her acclaimed solo debut, Life Light Up and spent much of the next two years touring with Tomlin and Passion. The collection showcased Christy’s warm, passionate voice and vulnerable, intuitive songwriting.

Those gifts continue to anchor Let It Be Jesus. Produced by husband, Nathan, the album’s live and anthemic production places the focus on the collection of songs clearly written for the Church to sing. Christy has a gift for imbuing each lyric with an authenticity and emotional integrity that resonates with the listener.

Everyone will hear Christy's work at "A Night of Hope" this weekend at First Baptist Church on their Cypress campus.
