Join us as we travel ‘down under’ to visit with our favorite Scottish apologist. We will discuss Australia’s interesting relationship with Facebook and answer the question: Has the Western Church forgotten God? And, we will discover why prayer might be outlawed. Get ready to lengthen your prayer list and discover how to think both critically and biblically.
The healthy Christian life is one of continuing spiritual, emotional, and relational growth. But so many of us feel stuck or stagnated at one stage of the journey. It's not always clear to us where or why we are stuck, making it difficult to take the next step on our journey of the soul. That's where our guests come in. After decades in private practice as counselors and therapists, they have developed a unique model for growing in grace. They join us to show us how to identify our current stage of faith and the next steps to take based on your unique needs and struggles.
