That Didn’t Hurt a Bit!

Every day, priests around the world hear the confessions of people who have been away from the sacraments and a practice of their faith for quite some time. In some instances, it has been as long as seventy years or more. While many factors could keep someone from returning to their faith through the portal of the confessional, it often boils down to shame, embarrassment or fear of what Father might say to them. They get up the nerve, anyway, and, lo and behold, it turns out to be a peaceful, joyous, healing, and even tearful encounter. Have you been down this road? If so, Tuesday is when we ask that you call the show and share your journey with the world. Who knows how many people you could inspire to return to the Sacrament of Confession and an active participation in the life of the Church!

Has God Moved Mountains For You?

Every person who ever lives will experience it. You want something. You desire something. You believe God is calling you to do something. You’re absolutely certain that you’re supposed to pursue it. Yet, all around you are obstacles. People who disagree or disapprove. Lack of human or financial resources. Physical limitations. You name it. The phrase that’s often used is, “God has to move mountains for me.” One of Debbie’s favorite Bible verses is Matthew 19:26, which rightly points out the limitations of mankind, but notes “with God all things are possible.” Jesus even noted that we can move mountains if we have faith the size of a mustard seed. Has there been a time in your life when God has indeed moved mountains to allow you to achieve something? This will be a lively and vibrant discussion as we celebrate the fourth anniversary of the show on Friday!

A beautiful song about God moving mountains.

What Discovery or Invention Do You Believe Has Most Benefited Christians?

Human history is filled with the discoveries and inventions of man. We have always sought to do things better, faster, more efficiently, more cost-effective, etc. If you were to give it a little thought, what do you think has been the single most influential advancement made by man throughout history? The wheel? Fire? Running water? The Internet? Scientific or medical progress? Do you believe the advantages of all of these have outweighed the potential negatives, especially in recent decades? Call with your take on Thursday.

Do You Worry About What Others Think Of You?

T2- June 11-2019- -others-think.jpg

It can be such an easy habit to fall into.  Even small children worry about what others think of them. It is human nature to want to be liked by everyone.  The need to be loved is so strong that worrying about what others are thinking or feeling can consume our lives. We are children of the Most High God and yet we spend countless hours worrying about something that may only exist in our minds.  We cannot control what others think or feel but we can realize our own self-worth and that can free us to be the best version of ourselves.  If you can relate to this topic on some level, please call in and share your story. 1-833-288-3986.

Romans 8:31… If God is for us, who shall be against us

Crushed Dreams

T2- June 10-2019- -Crushed

It happens to most of us.  We envision something great in our lives and we cannot stop obsessing about it.  The dreams we imagine seem right within our reach. We can even picture ourselves living out that dream.  But then something or someone comes along and crushes that precious dream.  We are devastated and sometimes unable to ever dream big again.  Has this ever happened to you?  How has a crushed dream affected your spiritual life?  Let’s talk about this and more on Tuesday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie. 1-833-288-3986.


Hurry Back, Jesus!

We know that Jesus is coming back. Scripture says – in the words of Jesus – that we do not know the day nor the hour. It could be Monday, or it could be 5000 Mondays from now. The Bible tells us that God’s patience is for our benefit. We all have family and friends who are not practicing their faith. The Book of Revelation exhorts us to pray for Jesus’ second coming. But, what would happen to our loved ones if He returned today? What would our own fate be? How do you handle the tension between wanting Jesus to return soon, and knowing people who might not be ready? On Monday, let’s talk about this, and share with us what you think of this question.
