There's a ton of really beautiful and dramatic imagery in Mark 13, as Jesus stokes to fires of revolution ahead of Good Friday and Easter. But is there a hidden message buried within the text that can be used to help us deal with the anxieties of the day? Josh and J.D. talk it out.
On a bright blue Georgia morning at one of our favorite coffee joints, the Rev. Joshua Bower and myself talk a little bit about what the Bible and Christ have to say on the topic of love. What does it mean to love others the way you love yourself? What does it mean to love oneself? We could've easily called this podcast "Love in the time of Covid19;" how do the stresses of life such as work, kids, marriage and pandemics impact our ability to love? We talk about it all on this week's episode of "Christianity in Action."

Jesus didn't literally mean to pluck out your eye if it sins, did he? It's easy to get distracted by all kinds of things that want to pull you away from the life that Christ wants you to live. What are you prepared to do help eliminate those barriers? Can you recommit yourself to avoid those distractions and focus on God?
