S2:E4 Turning to Hope for the World and in Our Lives

Just like the disciples who heard the call to turn from their fishing nets toward Jesus, we are each beckoned to reorient our lives to God, falling in love again, again, and again. But what exactly are we turning from? And what are we to turn toward?

Just like the disciples who heard the call to turn from their fishing nets toward Jesus, we are each beckoned to reorient our lives to God, falling in love again, again, and again. But what exactly are we turning from? And what are we to turn toward? In this episode, Bishop Michael Curry and hosts Kyle and Sandy discuss turning on the Way of Love: pausing, listening, and choosing to follow Jesus. Bishop Curry reflects on people who are helping us to find a new way in society, assisting us as we turn from fear, anxiousness, desperation, and sin, back toward confidence, boldness, hope, and redemption.

We also hear from Ruth Anderson and Greg Farrand of the Second Breath Center in Greensboro, N.C., where people who are “overloaded, overscheduled, overwhelmed and overstimulated” can step away and reorient their lives. Ruth and Greg offer tips and ideas to get started along that path as we bring ourselves back to the most important things in life.

S2:E5 Worshiping in Public as Witness

When we worship, we gather with others before God. We hear the Good News of Jesus Christ, give thanks, confess, and offer the brokenness of the world to God. So many of our worship experiences take place within a church building - it can be hard to imagine worship without candles and stained glass and pews - but there are many ways we can bring worship out into the wider world, knowing that God is waiting out there, too.

When God’s Word becomes ingrained in our lives, we can better see God’s activity within and around us and others. We can then tell that story in ways that are authentic to us and that others can understand.
