What whelms you and what to do when you’re overwhelmed | Good Gossip? | Brexit | Abortion and gay marriage in Northern Ireland | Christians in Hong Kong
Carmen leads off this hour with a question: What whelms you? When was the last time you whelmed (bowled over as if by a powerful wave)? Maybe it happened when the lines of song cut you to the heart? Maybe you were awed by God’s presence or experienced a sense of the peace which passes all understanding. Listeners responded with some of their whelming experiences and recommended two songs, Reckless and Overwhelmed by You (Big Daddy Weave). What whelms you?
That lead to a conversation with Dr. Linda Mintle about all the stuff that overwhelms us – and how to deal with it. Carmen and Linda also discuss gossip – and whether or not it’s ever good. (Spoiler: it’s not!) Carmen persists in her desire to redeem gossip through GossUP! Saying positive things about one another behind our backs! So, go ahead and GossUP today!
In the second half, Carmen talks with Dr. David Aikman from Godspeed Magazine about the time change (it’s already Daylight Savings Time in Europe), the death of al-Baghdadi, Brexit, Northern Ireland, Christians in Hong Kong and protests in Lebanon.
