“Where Was God on October 7?”

The war in Israel has meant families are separated as the military reserves have been called to the front lines – sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters. Some separated by death itself.

It has meant fear and destruction for Israelis and Palestinians. It has also caused many to ask spiritual questions. Questions like, “Where was God on October 7?”

One for Israel stands ready to meet the needs and answer the questions. Dr. Erez Soref, President of One For Israel, joins us from Israel to share what God has been doing in Israel since the war began with Hamas.

Also, in this episode we talk about the pushback the He Gets Us campaign is getting from their Superbowl commercial “Foot Washing.”

Perry shares, “If you could look at the landscape of my life, it would be like looking at a landfill, with raw sewage and roaches and rotting garbage. That’s who I am apart from Jesus.”

Last, Leviticus 3:16 says, “All the fat is the Lord’s.” Would you wear a t-shirt that says that to provoke spiritual conversations? Share the podcast if you’re encouraged by it!

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.
