EPISODE SEGMENTS

The Sin of Worry

Spiritual Growth|Roundtable
Guests: Megan Sammons, Kathryn Sill and Kevin Smyth

[21:12] - 

Worry is one of those things Christians brush off as "not that bad" — even admirable. After all, shouldn't we be "concerned" about our lives and the things going on in the world? The Bible has some stark things to say about worry. How do we apply them to the practicalities of life in a fallen world? Our panel weighs in.

I'm Not Who I Was

Sexuality|Culture
Guests: Janet Boynes

[19:05] - 

Janet Boynes had a rough childhood that morphed into a rough adulthood. Along the way she questioned her identity to the core, eventually choosing same-sex emotional and physical relationships to gain meaning and a sense of belonging. But the hurt remained. A combination of biblical truth, loving friends and Holy Spirit conviction started her on a journey out of darkness. Janet shares her hopeful story of being Called Out, and reflects on where the United States is in light of the recent Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage.

The Only Child

Marriage|Inbox
Guests: Roberta Perno

[4:27] - 

Our listener is an only child, and is concerned that dating and marrying another only child is less than ideal. Isn't the presence of family — particularly a large family — important? Do "only children" have the relational chops to do marriage and family well? Counselor Roberta Perno offers advice.
