Anxiety & Mental Health – Thursday’s Theology Edition

After receiving such great feedback for my anxiety and mental health blog post a couple weeks ago, I decided to do a special episode of Thursday’s Theology dedicated to talking more in depth about my own experience. This episode dives deeper into some thoughts I have about mental health and why it is important to seek out professional help if you are struggling with anxiety or depression.

Thanks for tuning in this week!

The Parable of the Hidden Treasure

If I’m being honest, this parable really messed with me this week. I would like to say that the Kingdom of Heaven is worth everything that I am and is worthy of all my possessions, but to be honest, I don’t know if I’m there yet. Read More »

Anxiety & Mental Health

I struggle with anxiety. It has been something that I’ve struggled with for years, and it is only recently that I have sought professional help to understand the deeper issues behind it. What drove me to seek professional help is that I got to a point of recognizing that I couldn’t process through the anxiety on my own. I needed professional help to get at the root of what was going on. Read More »

The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant

What happens when we refuse to extend the mercy and grace we received from God to others? The answer is not good. This week’s episode we discuss the Parable of the Unmerciful Servant and why Jesus uses it to reveal what happens when we refuse to extend mercy to others.

Sitting in the Silence: A post-Easter reflection on Holy Saturday

Perhaps it’s just the season I’m in, but this year, I was drawn to reflect upon Holy Saturday – the silence, the uncertainty, the doubt and confusion, the sadness, loss and grief. And finally the waiting – wondering what to do with with this unexpected pause, sensing that there is something far off on the horizon, but not sure what and most certainly not ready to move on.

I can hardly imagine the questions racing through the disciples’ minds, struggling to embrace the reality of the last few days. They had given up everything to follow this man named Jesus. They had become is friends and close companions. They were just getting used to this new way of life, traveling around, gathering with people from every walk of life, sharing meals together, all drawn to Jesus, eager to hear his words, to catch a glimpse of his face, or simply to be in his presence.

Everywhere he went, this man named Jesus seemed to cause a stir. He brought life, healing, and restoration. Sometimes his words even seemed to reach through and expose things broken deep inside the hearts and minds of his listeners – compassionate and compelling words, full of grace and truth, illuminating a better way of life.

This new way of life spread seeds of hope and expectation for what could be.

How could it all just be over? This wasn’t how it was supposed to end.

What is Grace?

What is grace? What does it mean to live by the grace of God? What does it do to our sin?

In this week’s episode, we cover the idea of grace and what it means for our sin. Ultimately, grace is something that we experience. Any words we come up with to describe it will fail to capture the true essence of grace. As always, the concept of grace can not be boiled down in one episode, but we will highlight the story of the Woman Caught in Adultery to try and understand what grace looks like.

What is Sin?

What is sin? Is it a list of things that we can’t do? Is it things that bring us shame? Or is it more than that?

This week’s episode is dedicated to answering the question “what is sin?” We explore how sin, at its core, gets in the way of our relationship with God. Sin and God cannot coexist in the same space.

Sorry that this week’s episode is late, but the upload on Thursday didn’t go through, so we are a little late, but nevertheless, enjoy this week’s episode!
