Take Courage is a place to hear stories of courage in a world full of challenge. Join Matt Miller as he gives insight for living with courage.
In serving those who are vulnerable, we learn about our own vulnerability. In this episode, Matt talks with Jennifer, whose story of adopting a little boy revealed much more to her than she anticipated.
How does flourishing happen in our lives? How do we develop healthy practices when we often participate in things that draw us away from God and others? In this episode of Take Courage, I talk with my friend about a struggle of his that is common to men. Finding a way out of something dark when you are alone is really hard, but seeing the light within a community, helps us get to where we need to be.
