Episode 25: Emotions, Faith, and Boston

Release Date April 22, 2013


Last Monday many of us were overwhelmed by strong emotions as we heard the news about bombs going off at the Boston Marathon. How should we think about our emotions, especially in the face of horrific tragedy? How should our faith inform us in difficult times? In this episode, Melinda talks with Dr. Gerald Peterman about the emotional life of the Christian, and about a theology of suffering.
