Adversity comes to all of us. Ever since the fall of man, and sin entering the world- all humanity faces struggle, pain, and difficulties. Understanding this reality can help ground us- so that we are not disillusioned and overtaken when adversity comes. In this episode, Pastors Alex and Melissa talk about three practical yet powerful things we can do to navigate through adversity and ultimately be over-comers.
In this episode we have a conversation about the power of gratitude. It can completely change our perspective in a situation without anything in our situation changing. Gratitude has to be intentional. It’s a powerful thing, but only works when you use it. You can have a toolbox full of tools, but if you don’t take them out to fix something, things stay the same.
Another adjustment most of us have been dealing with during this season is working from home. How do we manage this change and adjusting to living with our family and working under the same roof? It takes communication, cooperation, intentionality, and understanding. Listen in as we welcome our special guest Scott Kaczmarek, as he shares some practical tips on successfully working from home.
What does it look like to connect with God right now? Many people are having a hard time connecting, or feeling the Lord is quiet or distant. On this episode, we are going to spend some time talking about how can we just be with God, hear from God, so that we can connect to God in the midst of all that is going on right now.
In the second episode of Grief & Loss, we continue the conversation about the importance of identifying the losses we have experienced, share helpful tools with processing through the grief process, and the long term effects when we don't address grief in our lives.
In the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, there is a focus on so many different things going on around the world. Something we haven't heard a lot about is the many losses and corresponding grief we are experiencing right now. The question is- are we aware of these losses on an emotional level, how they are really affecting us, and how important it is to grieve in a healthy way?
