Trailer | Season 7: Episode 2 | Justin Brierley | Are We Seeing a Rebirth of Faith?

I think sometimes the problem is that the Christian church can be answering the questions of 20 years ago, you know, basically responding to the new atheists and asking: Do you have any evidence that God exists? And you go off and have a, you know, an interesting philosophical, scientific debate. But actually, that's not...I think the questions that most people in the secular culture are asking right now about God. They're more asking: How do I make sense of life? How do I...give me a reason for getting out of bed in the morning. Why do I feel so depressed? So I think where we could learn from that, in a sense is that actually we need to be answering the question that people are actually asking. We could take a lesson from sort of looking at what the existential issues are actually.---Listen to Justin Brierley being interviewed by author and theologian, Andrew Ollerton.

Trailer | Season 7: Episode 1 | Ann Voskamp | Is God Still Good When Tragedy Happens?

If you pick up a pen every day and you write down what you're grateful for, when you are in crisis, your soul will have a memory of what it is supposed to do. How can I give thanks to God in the midst of this valley and trial? Because ultimately what we need...can we position our soul to remember the truth? God is always good and I am always loved. Because when difficult things happen and the waves hit us, what the enemy of our souls can hiss: Is God really good now? Is God really kind? Does God really love you when this tragedy happens twice in your life? When you have a memory muscle, a gratitude muscle that knows that in crisis I keep giving thanks, what that means is that gratitude muscle will mean that you are strong in joy. And that if you let...don't let anything go ahead and steal your joy, because the joy of the Lord is your what? Your strength. So gratitude and joy are intimately connected right there at the Lord's Supper.---Listen to Ann Voskamp, the four-times New York Times best-selling author of WayMaker, The Broken Way, The Greatest Gift, and One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are being interviewed by seasoned journalist Lorna Dueck.
