From beginning to end the Bible tells a story about marriage. Woven through chapter and verse is a story of covenant love between Jesus (the bridegroom) and the Church (his bride). And it is so important to your Father that you understand this story, that he etched it right into your body (your sexuality). Join Juli and her guest Christopher West for a conversation about how our bodies proclaim the love and redemption of Jesus.
Guest: Christopher West
This may sound like a conversation about being a gay Christian, and it is. But more importantly, it's a conversation about wrestling with the question: Can I trust God? I know what he says, but do I believe that what he says is best for me? In this episode, Juli's guest Rachel Gilson shares her story and how she came to answer that question. And whether you're married, single, gay or straight, you'll have to answer it too.
Guest: Rachel Gilson
Sometimes life gets so hard, we doubt that Jesus is still with us. Did he abandon us? Was our faith even real in the first place? Juli's guest today is Michele Cushatt, a woman who has endured the kind of physical pain that most of us will never know. And it took her to the depths of doubt and despair. If you're feeling beat-up by the world and disappointed in God, this conversation is for you.
Guest: Michele Cushatt
Is God sexist? Does he value men more than he values women? If you've ever wrestled with this question, a quick look through a few books of the Old Testament can really trip you up! Why would God allow women to be treated so poorly at times? Juli sits down with Jo Vitale, an apologist with a specialty in sexism and the Bible, to make sense of the way women were treated in the OT and shed light on God's goodness in a fallen world.
Guest: Dr. Jo Vitale
The goal of motherhood is not to raise a perfect child. The goal isn't even to raise a Jesus-loving child. (Yep, you read that right.) Join Juli and her guests for a special conversation for moms of all ages and stages about the only way to become the moms we want to be.
