    S2-E32 Face To Face: Jesus & Peter- The Failures That Haunt You ...Can You Ever Come Back From Them?

    S2-E32 Face To Face: Jesus & Peter- The Failures That Haunt You ...Can You Ever Come Back From Them?

    Every Christian knows that God forgives, but are there failures in a person's life they can never come back from? We all fall and fail at times. God might forgive us, others might forgive us, but if we're honest, our bad decisions, our poor choices have a way of haunting us. When someone we trusted or looked up to falls, it oftentimes shakes us and changes the way we see that person. In this episode, Carl and Josh talk about the failure of Peter. They look at his shame, his struggle, and how Jesus not only forgives Peter but also restores him. We hope you're encouraged.

    S2-E31: Do You Decide Your Destiny?

    If God is sovereign, do you have a say? If you fail to follow God's plan for your life, do you get put into a purposeless "no man's land"? Questions about calling/destiny and how God's will plays onto it are at the forefront of a Christian's mind. In this episode, Josh and Carl explore the tension of believing that God is in control/in charge & that our response to him matters for our lives.

    S2-E30: Face to Face- Jesus and Thomas- Quit Hating on People With Doubts.

    Doubting is not a sin. Let's just get that out of the way. Many Christians equate doubt with disbelief and unfortunately treat those who have questions or curiosities as people who are trying to disprove faith altogether. In this episode, Josh and Carl explore Pastor Marvin's sermon about Jesus' conversation with Thomas after the resurrection. How should we approach our doubts? How should we treat other Christians who have doubts? What is the difference between doubting and disbelief? This and so much more got covered this week.

    S2-E29: Face to Face- Jesus and the Disciples: Fear Can't Stop God's Spirit From Keeping You Focused & Strong.

    Fear can drive you insane. The fear of losing your job, the fear of being trapped in your house for months, or the fear that you or that someone you love will get sick can drive the way people live. In this episode, Josh and Carl explore the conversation that Jesus has with his disciples after his resurrection. Jesus calms their fear with reassuring them of his presence with them, by giving them His Spirit and by refocussing the thoughts in their minds.

    In this episode, Josh and Carl explore Jesus' conversation with Mary Magdalene that happens right after the resurrection. As you listen, we hope you're encouraged and that in the middle of this cultural moment that you are reminded that God knows who you are & is with you.

It's easy to move to an extreme on either side of the COVID conversation. In this episode, Carl and Josh take time to discuss the tension point of being a person of faith and why we should not allow panic and fear to influence our decisions during this season. We hope you're encouraged.
