As an atheist CS Lewis dreaded death, but after Jesus crashed into him, he saw it as “an approaching adventure.” And the hope of the adventure to come propelled him to live his life to the full for the one who loved him—and the reality of our death and the hope that’s beyond death is meant to propel us to make the most of every single moment! Then Shawna shares a moment she regrets, a moment her words wounded her daughter and why that’s one of the reasons for launching The Abstaining From Complaining Challenge in November. Then how The Challenge transformed what should have been a horrible day into laughter at the end of that day for Andrea’s family. And finally, if you’re in Jesus’ family but you have this nagging feeling that one day he’s going to kick you out, find out from Jesus’ words how that will NEVER be the case.
