Friendship and partisanship | What would you ask: Presidential debate | Marriage in the Middle with author Dorothy Greco
Where in the Word are you today? Carmen walks around in I Peter 5:6-11
6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. 11 To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.
- trust God to be God (he is so good!)
- cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you
- be alert and of sober mind
- the enemy is real and he’s not going away
- resist the enemy by standing firm in the faith and remembering other believers suffering today
- God will HIMSELF restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast (resilient!)
- To Him be the power for ever and ever, Amen!
Carmen talks with Dr. Peter Kapsner about whether or not friendship is possible amidst the increasingly acrimonious political divides in America today. They also muse about what they’d ask if they had the opportunity to moderate the upcoming Presidential debate.
In the second half, Carmen talks with author Dorothy Littell Greco about her book, Marriage in the Middle: Embracing Midlife Surprises, Challenges and Joys.
