    Episode 200: About Sabbath - What Does It Really Mean to Rest?

    Episode 200: About Sabbath - What Does It Really Mean to Rest?

    We live in uncertain times, and life isn't always what we expect. Even during the turmoil currently invading our lives, is it possible to experience rest? Is a day to stop and put our trust wholly in God exactly what we need right now? 

    One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:  What do you think about Sabbath’s role to remind us that we are worth more than what we can produce?

    So what about you?  Does this idea of our worth being more than we can produce make you as grateful as it does me?  As always we'll take your questions, your answers, or comments on something we said, didn’t say, or how you feel about the subject at hand.  You can leave us your insights by using one of the following:

    Episode 199: About Sabbath - What Does “Keeping It Holy” Mean For Us Today?

    Episode 199: About Sabbath - What Does “Keeping It Holy” Mean For Us Today?

    It seems clear from the commandment that at least part of what “keeping Sabbath” means has to do with the day being “different” from the other days of the week. Six are designed for working, and one designed for rest. Paul says the law is good, and that we are not “under the law," so how does this relate to Sabbath? 

    One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:  How has this time of “social distancing” affected your thoughts about Sabbath? About corporate worship? About fellowship?

    So, how have these last few weeks changed your thoughts about Sabbath, worship, and fellowship?  As always we'll take your questions, your answers, or comments on something we said, didn’t say, or how you feel about the subject discussed in this week’s episode.  You can leave us your insights by using one of the following:

    Episode 198: About Sabbath... What Did Jesus Do To Restore A Proper Understanding?

    Episode 198: About Sabbath... What Did Jesus Do To Restore A Proper Understanding?

    Jesus broke the Sabbath taboos, but he also never sinned, which means he “kept the Sabbath holy.” How do blessings get turned into curses? The way Jesus related to the Sabbath was to return to its original intent: it was made for people—people weren’t made for it! It fits the New Testament idea that the law is meant to be descriptive of the life of a follower of Jesus, not a means to please or appease God.

    One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked: What are some ways that Sabbath has been corrupted over time?

    Episode 197: About Sabbath... What Are Its Origins?

    Episode 197: About Sabbath... What Are Its Origins?

    It is often thought that the Sabbath is a Jewish construct beginning when the 10 Commandments were given on Mt. Sinai. It is important to remember that, whatever Sabbath would become in the culture of a fallen world, it preceded the fall. The Sabbath finds its roots in the story of creation, God’s story of what is ideal for his perfect creation in a sinless garden. How will this clear place of Sabbath’s birth change our relationship to Sabbath today?

    One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:  Why do you think God initiated Sabbath before anyone was tired?

    Episode 196: Rising From The Dust - #WholeLifeRetreat 2020 Edition

    Episode 196: Rising From The Dust - #WholeLifeRetreat 2020 Edition

    This year’s Retreat speaker was Dr. Carla Gober Park. Carla is currently the Executive Director of Faith Community Strategy at AdventHealth in Florida and the Special Assistant to the President at AdventHealth University. Before moving to Florida, she was Assistant Vice President for Spiritual Life and Mission at Loma Linda University Health and director of a center for whole-person care. Carla has degrees in four different fields: nursing, counseling, public health, and a Ph.D. in religious studies. She is also a storyteller and filmmaker. In 2015, she was the producer and executive producer of the award-winning film, A Certain Kind of Light, a short-form documentary film on whole-person care. Carla’s humor and deep commitment to God, community, and church form the foundation for everything she does. She married the love of her life in 2013 — a Scotsman in a kilt! Carla and Gordon, with their dog Cypher, split their time between California and Florida and love being out where you can still see the stars at night.

    Stay tuned next week for our first #WholeLifeTAKEAWAY!

    Episode 195: Biblical Ambiguity…Should I Doubt?

    Great Question 2020 - This annual series invites questions from young adults about Christian beliefs they would like explained more thoroughly. This week's question:  How can I keep from having doubt with such ambiguity in the Bible?

    This week our final #fhcTAKEAWAY, EVER… asked:   Does the fact that the Bible contains poetry, idioms, hyperbole, etc. diminish its authority? How would you answer that question for someone who’s wrestling with the validity of Scripture?
