Living at Peace in a World Gone Mad

Really? That’s Possible? Brant Hansen joins Perry to show us that it is possible! Brant’s the host of the award-winning radio show, The Brant Hansen Show and his newest book is Life is Hard, God is Good, Let’s Dance.

So first, to live at peace in a world gone made we need to let the words of Jesus recreate us, we need to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, we need to stop listening to ourselves and start talking to ourselves. Then, professing Christians are deconstructing their faith and walking away.

Brant and Perry share how the power and love of the person of Jesus and his kingdom keep them from being swept away. Next, Brant’s dad was a pastor, and also a complete hypocrite. He caused Brant and his brother to fear for their lives. And yet, it was actually Jesus’ words about hypocrites that brought Brant back around to Jesus.

Then in an age of Jesus superstars, hipster preachers and singers and their expensive homes it can be easy to get jaded and critical. But first we need to look at what’s in our own hearts and then be captivated by Jesus. Brant says, “I’m not giving up the beauty of Jesus just because of some hypocrisy in the church.”

Next, how Jesus healed a 17-year-old young woman with a hole in her face. And how seeing the goodness of God in such beautiful miracles reminds us that God is good and we can trust him. Last, Brant encourages us to outsource our worries to Jesus!

Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
