You might find members of this week’s panel hiking, snowboarding, hunting or any number of other outdoor activities. Lisa is also outdoorsy, but don’t ask her to go snowshoeing. For many of us, being outside helps us feel closer to God. It also helps us focus, find healing, and get away from the daily rat race. The panel has a few warnings, though, for nature lovers. Listen in (you can even listen outside!) for the full discussion.
Guests: Tim Sanford,
We’ve all been wronged in one way or another. How we deal with that pain can often determine our long-term well-being. We know forgiveness can free us from the baggage and bitterness, but do we always (or ever) forgive for real? What if we looked at forgiveness as a legal transaction? Can we get the debt owed us “paid in full,” especially if the person we need to forgive has died or is unreachable? What’s the difference between forgiveness and reconciliation? Is confronting a person necessary? Counselor Tim Sanford gives us a fresh perspective on forgiveness in part one of this two-part series.
A listener who’s been going to the same small group for years suddenly realizes she’s the oldest one there. She thinks the group’s leaders are amazing, but when she remembers the youngest person there is a teen, she wonders if it’s time to find a new group. Lisa has some thoughts.
