Faith is a gift. Why it’s not received and lived by all people is a deep mystery. “There but for the grace of God go I” is a phrase we’ve all likely heard many times during our lives. When we really, really think about what we’ve been given, and that it’s possible that countless other people don’t have faith, it’s mind boggling. Living out our faith in total dependance on God is the path to heaven. That’s how serious this matter is. On Tuesday, join Jerry and Debbie and share how very grateful you are for the gift of your faith.
It seems the information about the COVID-19 virus changes hour by hour. It’s impacting the globe like few situations throughout history have. While we pray and beseech the Lord to guide those who are leading the charge to develop effective vaccines and treatments, everyday life has to go on. And, sadly, for many that means their employment situation has been impacted – if not wiped out – by the reactions to the pandemic. Have you lost your job recently in its aftermath? Perhaps your employment has been scaled back? If you fall into any such categories, call Jerry and Debbie on Monday and let’s talk about it. If nothing else, it can spark worldwide prayer for your present circumstances. Talk to you on Monday!
There has been a change in plans for the rest of the week. The coronavirus and the impact it’s having on every aspect of our lives led us to decide to give you the opportunity to call and share anything you’d like for the rest of the week. It’s known as our Unscripted shows, which we usually feature once a month. But we know there’s a lot on your minds and in your hearts that you’d like to discuss. Therefore, bring whatever take you want on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
As we go through life, we experience many surprises. One of the more pleasant surprises is somehow discovering that a family member, neighbor, co-worker, gym buddy – anyone you’ve had a relationship with – is a devout Christian, and you hadn’t known that before. It could be someone you’ve known since high school, but never talked about the faith with before. Maybe it’s someone who has converted to Christ, and you weren’t aware of that. This type of discovery can unlock beautiful new – or deeper – relationships with these individuals. On Tuesday, call and share if this is something you have experienced.
This is a special post of the prayer Jerry read on the air at the end of today’s show. Many people have asked to be able to pray it. Take 2 Family, let’s commit to praying this prayer often in the coming days. It can help us keep things in perspective. Have a blessed weekend!
In life, we hurt others. They hurt us. Sometimes the damage we do to one another lasts a long time in the form of grudges. Forgiveness and moving on with our lives is so vitally important. I can take time, but a grudge can be unloaded. Have you managed to do this in your life? Maybe multiple times? To close out the week of live shows, Jerry and Debbie invite you to join us for a candid conversation about this important topic.
How much has changed in just the last twenty four hours! The Archbishop of Seattle has ordered the indefinite suspension of all public Masses. The National Basketball Association has suspended its season. Much more is ahead. We’re obviously in for a very bumpy ride. On Thursday, Jerry and Debbie will field more of your calls about how your life has been impacted by this latest health crisis, how you’re trying to maintain some semblance of “normalcy” in your life, how much you’re doing to stay abreast of developments and keep yourself and your loved ones safe, and more. Most of all, what are you doing to pray and sacrifice for the world at this critical moment? Call with your takes on Thursday.
