The Fallout From Divorce

The Fallout From Divorce

3-16-18_LA_Congress

We are LIVE this Saturday at the L.A. Religious Education Congress.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!  We decided to pick a topic that impacts most every one of us.  The Fallout From Divorce is the title and sadly it speaks for itself.  We know that the real casualties of divorce are the children.  They did not ask for the divorce and the last thing they wanted is to have a house divided.  Divorce may be inevitable at times for a multitude of reasons, but that still does not change the reality that the children and the adults are forever impacted and not in a positive way.  This is a difficult subject to address because everyone has their own unique set of circumstances.  But, it is a topic we must talk about because unfortunately divorce is rampant in today’s culture. ​ Jerry and Debbie will be able to speak from experience on this matter and we hope you weigh in as well, by calling, 1-833-288-3986(EWTN).

Like Father, Like Son or Daughter

Join Jerry and Debbie on Monday as they welcome back John Finch to the program. John is the producer of the documentary, “The Father Effect,” which aired on EWTN Television. John is a “survivor” of a lost fatherhood. His dad was absent and abusive, finally taking his own life. This led to a desperate search on John’s part to find himself, and to come to realize who he is in the eyes of his earthly and heavenly fathers. John has a new book on this subject, and will share his hard-earned insights on the show on Monday. Be sure to call in with your own experiences of how you have spent a lifetime “looking” for your dad.

Preaching the “Bad News”

In order for the “Good News” to be good, there has to be “bad news” that it is countering. At least that’s the case with the gospel. The gospel is the greatest news ever to be proclaimed. That’s precisely because it’s the answer to the really, really bad news. Yet it seems we live in a world that increasingly either denies or doesn’t realize that sin exists, and that it can potentially lead our souls to eternal damnation. For many people, there is no right or wrong. Just “your truth” and “my truth.” Until each individual personally recognizes that he or she is sinful and in need of a savior, the good news will not be effective in their lives. It’s like telling a medical patient that there is a cure for his or her ailment. No cure is needed unless there is the knowledge of the malady and how serious it is. So, what can we do to help a world that has lost almost any sense of sin rediscover the “bad news,” so that it will wholeheartedly embrace the “good news?” Share your take with Jerry and Debbie on Friday.

Are You Able to Receive Praise?

The Christian faith teaches us all about humility. Everything good thing we do begins with God’s grace and inspiration and reaches completion with His help. So, can we take credit for any of our good works? Don’t we have to cooperate with God’s grace in order for Him to work in and through us? What about the gifts God gives us? Surely, they’re gifts from His hand to us. But they’re still ours, in a certain sense. When someone tells you you did a great job on this or that task, are you able to receive that praise, knowing that your talents ultimately come from God? So many people completely reject praise and honor for their achievements out a sense of unworthiness, or even a false humility. Let’s talk about this on Tuesday with Jerry and Debbie.
