Show Notes

Why is it that you never see your favorite superheroes checking in to the doctor’s office? Is it that we portray the image that in order to be a “hero” to someone that you have to be almost invincible to pain or suffering?

Depression and other mental health struggles do not discriminate. An important part of any kind of human service or ministry is to be mentally and spiritually well. Too often, in our flesh, we try to mask the perceived weaknesses associated with depression, anxiety, and emotional suffering that it eventually leads to burnout or a host of other problems.

This week, we’re saying, “NO MORE!”

It is time to step out of that darkness and open the doors for conversations to save our leaders, healers, and ministers. But how do we do it? Where do we start? Is this even possible in a world that tends to shy away from embracing vulnerability?

On this Father’s Day, we are thinking of the fathers in Orlando grieving the loss of their son or daughter. The headlines rip at the heart of every father of the senseless shootings of Christina Grimmie and the patrons at Pulse, and the toddler killed by an alligator at Walt Disney World.

Show Notes

Pulse shooting in Orlando is being called the biggest terror attack on the US since 9/11. How do we process tragedy like this as it impacts an entire nation? Here are 5 ways Christians can respond

The truth is, we don’t really know why the shootings happened, except that we live in a world full of sin around people who have their eyes set on destruction. Some think it had something to do with ISIS or simply out of hatred for LGBT people. Who knows, really? These shootings have no rationale. And how we respond is critically important. Our only remedy is to call this nation back to God.

 

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu gave an appropriate response in light of the attack on Pulse.

Remembering Elisabeth Elliot and her legacy despite living through tragedy

Books by Elisabeth Elliot

Elisabeth Elliot was one of the most influential Christian women of our time. For a half century, her best selling books, timeless teachings and courageous faith have influenced believers and seekers of Jesus Christ throughout the world. She used her experiences as a daughter, wife, mother, widow, and missionary to bring the message of Christ to countless women and men around the world.

Read John Piper’s thoughts in the days after she passed in 2015.[/threecol_two_last]

 

Check it out

Ephesians 5 | Titus 3

 

There are enough things that divide us, that create a barrier of connection and affect interpersonal relationships. If tragedy has any upside, it’s that those barriers can come down and we can mourn with those who mourn. Differences don’t matter. Love does. Love matters. And love will win. Faith, hope and love remain. The greatest of these is love. And the truth is, we will get through. We are going to make it. -Jeff

When I think of the word, reframing, I think of a building or room that’s being restored. At one point, it was new and in great shape. After a while, especially if it’s been vacant for years, things begin to warp and sag. And sometimes, in order to get back to great physical shape, walls, doorframes, ceilings and stairs have to be stripped down and rebuilt.

I think the same is true for people, too. This week, we’re sitting down with Joshua, a 17-year-old refugee from Uganda and The Republic of Congo.
