The Hamster Wheel of Life
Guests: Joe Degelia, Heather Howes
Hamsters seem perfectly happy running in a wheel that's not going anywhere, but people have a lower tolerance for such things. What do you do when you feel your life isn't going anywhere? How do you remain faithful in the present while keeping your dreams for the future alive? We explore these questions and more in this week's roundtable.
Guests: Michael Ross
In a survey of 70,000 believers, Back to the Bible discovered that only about 40 percent of teens, young adults and people 25 and older consistently turn to God's Word for spiritual growth and daily direction. Why does reading the Bible feel like such a drag, and does it really make a difference? Michael Ross, co-author of Unstuck, explains the importance of engaging Scripture and how doing so has changed his life.
Guests: John Thomas

How can she continue to build a God-centered friendship with a guy she's attracted to but has a girlfriend?
