The reason why we’re doing a podcast on life and Scripture meeting is simple. At times, we all struggle with how real life and Scripture actually meet. However, as Christians, we have the privilege and challenge of exploring how the Bible gives words of life and perspective for the complexities of our current day. From dealing with extreme trauma, all the way to growing in the skill of daily rest, I hope you’ll join me, Alasdair Groves, in musing about how Scripture really does meet us in day-to-day life, and that it will be as energizing to your walk with the Lord as it has been to mine. Welcome to the CCEF Podcast: Where Life and Scripture Meet.
Episode 4: Negative Emotions
Let me ask you a question. Is it okay for Christians to feel really bad? Is it okay for Christians to get upset and feel terrible? Do you have a place in your theology for a Christian to be sad or angry or afraid or any of a host of other negative emotions?
Episode 3: Hope
“God is passionately interested in giving us encouragement that shapes our ability to endure hardship every step of the way.”
Episode 2: Trauma
“Staying connected to the living Christ in the wake of trauma gives us the opportunity for a transformation that is as deep as our soul and as long as eternity—that is redemption.”
Episode 1: Rest
Is our rest actually restful? In this episode of the CCEF Podcast: Where Life and Scripture Meet, Alasdair Groves sits down to expose the ways that chasing after rest can feel like a never-ending, unsatisfying cycle, and discusses how viewing rest through a Christ-centered perspective frees us to embrace true rest in whatever capacity it might come.
