David Ould on Channel 10 Australia’s “The Project” Next Wednesday

I’m pretty excited (and not a little bit terrified) to announce that I will be appearing as a panel member on Australian Channel 10’s “The Project” show next Wednesday evening.

Last week I entered the “Your Chair” competition run in conjunction with the Jonesy and Amanda breakfast show on WSFM101.7 here in Sydney and was stunned to get a phone call on Tuesday telling me I’d been shortlisted followed up with a call on Wednesday inviting me to take part in the show next week.

The prize is a place on the panel for the whole show alongside their regular team. I’ll get to have a little say on whatever the topics of the day might be.

The full list of winners is a wonderfully diverse group of people as the media release shows:

I feel incredibly privileged and not a little over-awed to be included amongst them and to find myself here. As part of the application process I told them I think Christians often didn’t get a fair go on TV. I suspect they were also really interested in our work at Break the Cycle, Glenquarie. Whatever it was that got me the place, my week has suddenly become much more full with phone calls from producers and publicists and emails with call sheets and flights and hotel stays. I’m already struck by just how nice everyone involved is as they help me get ready.

Over the next few days I have a live TV slot on the show’s “Whip Around” this Friday evening (with Jonesy and Amanda!), some stuff going on in the smh, a breakfast radio slot next week and then the show itself on Wednesday 6:30pm.

They’re all obviously (brief) opportunities to have a little fun and hopefully to present a credible Christian voice and so I covet your prayers.

Something to pray:

Col. 4:5-6 Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
