    #15 - Becoming Blind to See (Jon-Marc and Meg Haden)

    Jon-Marc and Meg Haden read through the story of Saul's conversion in Acts 9, reminding us that Jesus meets us wherever we are in our messy lives, and also that sometimes we have to be led through blindness in order to see things more clearly.

    "What's Good" recommendations for this week:

    Meg - Spending time outside in the James River

    JM - New tracks from Sandra McCracken, specifically the song "You Are With Me."

    #14 - What's Your Herd of Pigs? (Zeke Smith)

    #14 - What's Your Herd of Pigs? (Zeke Smith)

    Today Zeke looks at Matthew 8:28-34, where an entire town experiences a miracle firsthand and yet tells Jesus to leave. It may seem crazy, but each of us is not so different - encountering Jesus will cause disruption and sacrifice, so we have to choose between seeing the miraculous good or the short-term sacrifice.

    #13 - Who's Really on Trial? (Sarah Luck & Zeke Smith)

    Sarah Luck and Zeke Smith talk through John 8, where a woman expecting to be put to death instead finds incredible grace from Jesus' response. We ask who's really on trial, examine how Jesus forgives and also calls us to begin again, and think through what that means for us.

    #12 - Jesus, Have Mercy on Me (Olivia McLean)

    Olivia McLean opens up Mark 10:46-52 and the story of Blind Bartimeus, and what we can learn from his example of throwing aside what belongs to us to simply ask Jesus to have mercy on us, no matter what we're feeling.
