We're going to do something here that I’ve never done in the over 2,000 episodes of the Ed Boston Podcast that we've done over the last 11 years. We're pulling part of an interview we did with Ellis Lucas and make a total separate podcast with the part you are about to listen to. We've had several multiple podcast interviews before because of length, but never one like this. This is the touching story of Ellis and his parents. Unknown to us before the interview, Ellis' father had passed away just two days earlier.
Today's podcast ends with an original song from Ellis called "Outside Looking In".
A little about Ellis
While he never envisioned becoming an author, Ellis Lucas is a natural born storyteller nonetheless. And in an age where it feels like everyone, even the most inconsequential of public figures and celebrities, feels compelled to chronicle their life’s journey in memoir form, Ellis Lucas’s The Potter and the Clay isn’t yet another ho-hum account of a few of humanity’s shared experiences. It’s a gritty, real-life story of utter transformation. A riveting and transparent page-turner of a story filled with love, a veritable mountain of loss, and eventually, sweet redemption, The Potter and the Clay also offers a powerful takeaway, namely that no matter how far someone feels from salvation, hope, change and, yes, total renewal are never out of reach.
“My life had been so completely destroyed that I’d come to believe there was absolutely no hope of ever changing, and all I had to look forward to was whatever awaited me beyond the grave—most likely judgment,” Ellis shares. “But while locked up in the Clay County Missouri Jail, at the end of life as I knew it, Jesus Christ stretched out His mighty hand of grace and showed Himself along with an astonishing revelation. God loved me and had an amazing plan for my life if I would open my heart and receive Him that day. And that’s a message I want the whole world to hear.” Read More!--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/edboston/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/edboston/support
