241- The World is Opening. Are you?

“The world is opening back up, have you done the same?”

Spring is here, the economy and plight of humanity has reached the breaking point and people are easing back into life. For over two months, most of the world has been locked inside, and now we must take an inventory of how we handled this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

In today’s podcast and post, I will ask four key questions that will probe whether or not we squandered this unique opportunity. Did we get carried along by our impulses, emotions, and the media? Or did we navigate the storm with our bearings on true North? Join me now as we deconstruct the soul which we are bringing back to the world.

240- Perfect Imperfection

“Do you think you’ve known enough suffering? Maybe not.

As I produce this podcast, the pandemic is thrusting our world into countless forms of suffering. In Columbia, Brazil and Mexico, the starvation has already gone beyond the miles of food lines that Americans get to drive up to. We all want to turn our face from suffering, but when we do, we miss something transformative.

In today’s podcast and post I’m going to offer a definition of suffering that most will reject. Join me now as we see beyond the circumstances that have thrust pain upon us and stare deeply into that which can transform our world.

238- These are NOT uncertain times…

“Do you think there is a bigger story beyond the pandemic? 

I’ll bet your answer reveals your political bias. As our world splinters deeper into factions, I’ll show that our battle with uncertainty is not one of finding the truth, it’s that of authority. Are the expertsall telling the truth? Is there a conspiracy behind it all? 

In today’s podcast and post, we will look beyond the headlines into the most provable conspiraciesof human history. From there I will show you the prescription for humanity where both diversity and unity coexist and we discover that these are NOT uncertain times.

233- What’s so Good about This Friday?

“With the world turned upside down, what is so Good about this Friday?”

Throughout the world, Christians are trying to celebrate Holy Week in unconventional ways due to the global pandemic. With all the bad news that is happening around us, you may have wondered where God is in all of this. If so, you are not alone. Many are asking: if there is an all-powerful God, why hasn’t he/she done anything?

In today’s podcast and post, I will answer this pressing question in a way that will allow all comers to see God’s work as easily as they see their own hand. Join me now as we see beyond the suffering of the world and get a solid reason why today is called Good Friday.

Lockdown Exposes What’s Real This Easter

“Do you really want things to go back to how they were? I don’t.”

I told you last week, we’d be in this for a while and now the novelty is wearing off. So many memes and GIF’s circulating about how we are getting on each other’s nerves. While good for a laugh, the underlying truth must be exposed. In today’s podcast and post I will prove that the lockdown is not creating relationship problems, it is exposing them.

Join me now as we take a sobering look beyond the issues at home and into our communities of faith. This Palm Sunday, let’s hope the real Easter emerges from the inside out. If it does, the world won’t have to go back to how it was.

230- Are you Bored Yet? Annoyed?

“Are you bored yet? Are you annoyed?”

Our world has shifted and we are all trying to jockey for positions. Shutting down the world is an unprecedented event that will inconvenience some and cause others to suffer. In today’s post and podcast I will invite you to consider what lies beneath the surface of our boredom and our annoyance.  It’s not the kids being home.

Join me now as we learn to see beyond our sequestration and deeper into our soul as we learn how to reframe the worlds events into something amazing.
