Francis Chan & David Platt

This week we talk to Francis Chan and David Platt about their new project, The Multiply Movement. The prominent authors and speakers talk about the very practical side of Jesus' desire for us to make disciples who make disciples. We also get a listener on the line to compete in a summer game, discuss the separation of church and state, and salute the queen of summer (and master of thighs), Suzanne Somers...

Question of the Week

If your summer was a movie co-starring Suzanne Somers, what would the name of the movie and the tagline be?

You and Suzanne Somers are starring in a movie about your summer. So we need to know the name of the movie and the marketing tagline for this epic blockbuster.

Title: A Somer To Remember
Tagline: "...and step, by step, they'll see, it will be a Somer to remember."

Plot: A romantic comedy taking place in malibu (or as Kanye West calls it, mali-booyah), serves as the only movie you'll need to see this somer. Suzanne Somers stars as a lonely ice cream parlor worker named Summer who falls in love with local billionaire, Cody (played by Max Elliott Slade [who also played Colt in The 3 Ninjas Kick Back]). through a series of chance encounters, they find themselves falling for each other. inspired by (not at all) true events, their quirky, 90's sitcom-like romance, will have you longing to be on the beaches of 'the bu' while thinking "hmmm, the plot synopsis of this movie wasn't lazy at all!"

Title: Poisoning the Well
Tagline: Sometimes... Water's Thicker Than Blood.

Summer Glau and Summer Sanders play sisters and investigative journalists who find themselves trapped in a web of lies and conspiracy when they try to discover just WHY the government insists on adding fluoride to the drinking water. This conspiracy goes all the way to the top and the city's mayor, and the duo's mom, (played by Suzanne Somers) will do whatever it takes, even kill, to keep the truth from getting out.

I know that's not really about "my summer" but, trust me, this is way more interesting.

Chrissy vs Chrissy, The Ride, The Movie

"You'll see that life is a frolic, and laughter is waiting for you."

Chrissy Schofield happens upon Chrissy Snow (role reprised by Suzanne Somers) moving in to in her quiet Minnesota neighborhood. Her arrival marks a dramatic increase in confusion and misunderstandings in the neighborhood. A friendly rivalry emerges when Ms. Schofield urges Ms. Snow's household to simply communicate directly with each other. Ms. Snow takes offense in loud, boisterous, cries. Things come to a head in a completely logical dance-off in the street on National Night Out.

Well, I'm being deployed this summer and while in actuality it should be a fairly benign deployment it will be slightly dramatized for the movie.

Movie Name: Red Hot Heat
Tag Line: "Summer is just too hot for war"

Susan, playing herself, is on mission to convince the local populace of the dangers of water fluoridation. This gets her into a lot of trouble as the local populace is well informed of the cost effectiveness and public benefits of water fluoridation. Not wanting an international incident and to prevent summer from coming to an abrupt end, for Somers, the president dispatches an elite troop of soldiers to extract her.

I may have said too much.
