This week on “The Boundless Show”
How can you practically draw close to God when you experience longings to be seen?
Roundtable: The Ugly Truth About Beauty
Boundless contributor Joshua Rogers wrote this week’s feature article titled “When Guys Don’t Notice You.” Let’s just say the article didn’t have that problem; it got noticed. Readers were divided on whether they found the article helpful or hurtful. Some thought it downright vicious. We thought its points merited further discussion, so this week we dig into beauty, attraction, worth and wounding in an attempt to separate the inevitable from the inspired.
Culture: It’s OK to Be Unseen
Ever wish someone was thinking about you all the time? Yeah, we do too. But instead of pushing away that longing, we can use it to draw closer to God in little moments of everyday life. It sounds cliché, but it’s actually very doable, and it changed author Sara Hagerty’s life. Join us as Lisa and Sara talk about how to feel like God loves and sees you, even when you’re not doing “big things.”
