    Abraham & Sarah

    Abraham & Sarah

    As dawn breaks and the coffee brews, Kara R. Hunt and Cheri Swalwell are already deep in conversation, exploring how the world’s issues might just be a grand-scale sibling spat. Our whimsical musings suggest that maybe, just maybe, a simple snack and a nap could do the trick for global peace, drawing inspiration from the refreshment Elijah found in the biblical narrative. We invite you into our light-hearted banter that seamlessly weaves through spirituality, the comfort found in the changing seasons, and the notion that our shared humanity might hold the key to understanding each other a little better.

    Venture with us as we traverse the lives of Abraham and Sarah, a couple whose story is bound by promises, patience, and faith. Their narrative, stretching from Genesis 12 through Genesis 25, is a rich tapestry highlighting the imperfections of God's chosen and the beauty that unfolds when divine timing takes the lead. It's a journey that speaks to the heart of every listener who has ever waited for a promise to be fulfilled or has doubted their place in God's plan. Through their episodes in Egypt and their long-awaited childbirth, we reflect on the ways fear and frailty are part of our spiritual growth.

    We wrap up with an eye towards the horizon, teasing the tale of Isaac and Rebecca for our next episode. The generational dance of challenges and blessings beckons us to ponder the legacies we inherit and the stories we continue. As we close this chapter, we leave you with the reminder that the journey of faith is marked by endurance and 'holy fear'—a reverence for the divine that empowers us to stand steadfast amid life's storms. So, grab a cozy blanket and your favorite morning beverage, and join us for an episode that promises to stir your soul and tickle your funny bone with a divine perspective on the everyday.

    Noah

    Noah

    Have you ever felt lost in the vastness of the Bible or struggled with understanding the true nature of God? Join Cheri and me, Kara R Hunt, as we embark on a compelling journey through the sacred pages, with an eye-opening focus on the Old Testament. In our latest episode, we unveil God's profound love threaded throughout the narratives. We share our personal experiences of reading Scripture cover to cover, and the surprising ways it can transform your understanding of Jesus' ultimate sacrifice.

    This week's heartfelt discussion takes a deep look at one of the most relatable biblical figures: Noah. His story is more than a Sunday school favorite; it's a testament to obedience and faith amidst adversity, offering us a mirror into our own lives. Cheri and I discuss how stories like Noah's can lead to a profound understanding of our shared humanity and the significance of surrendering to God's will. Moreover, we examine the power of personal Bible study in uncovering new insights, as we did with the story of Ruth and Boaz, encouraging you to find revelations that speak directly to your heart.

    As we wrap up, we extend a warm invitation for you to return next week for another session brimming with exploration and spiritual connection. Cheri and I are excited to continue our conversation on the Old Testament's fascinating figures, not from a podium of academia, but as friends in faith keen on growth and learning. It's about engaging with ancient wisdom and discovering how it can illuminate our modern lives. So join us, bring your curiosity, and let's journey together through these timeless tales.
