Take2 - 11/20/2018 - What Does It Mean to be Lukewarm?

Revelation 3:16 quotes the Spirit saying to the Church in Laodicea, “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew you out of my mouth.” It adds that God would even prefer that a person were cold toward Him than to be lukewarm. What does being lukewarm mean to you? How do you understand that word and that passage? How can we know if we’re lukewarm or not? Given how easy it is for us to deceive ourselves, should we regularly check in with others about the condition of our spiritual lives, perhaps a spiritual director Have you ever sensed that you were lukewarm in your attitude toward God? What did you do to correct that? Do you believe you should warn people you know and love if you sense that they are not taking their relationship with God seriously enough?

Take2 - 11/19/2018 - What Dumb Thing Do You Wish You Hadn't..

What Dumb Thing Do You Wish You Hadn’t Done?

We have choices to make every day. Some turn out well, while others don’t quite meet with the same success. In fact, using hindsight, some decisions we make, or actions we take, turn out to have been just plain dumb. Are we more likely to do these types of things when we’re younger and less wise? Or, is the potential there for this to befall us at any stage of our lives? Some examples might be taking on a college friend’s challenge to down ten cans of beer in five minutes, blindly trusting that a wall outlet is working properly when your wife told you she saw sparks coming from it when she last tried to use it, driving at 90 miles an hour with your lights off on a windy country road, you get the idea. Perhaps you would never in a million years have even considered doing anything as outrageous as these things. But, if we’re honest, each of us has done something “dumb” at some point along life’s journey. Let’s talk about this, not simply for the sake of the colorful details, but with a view to how we have matured in our thoughts and actions as we’ve gone through life.

Take2 - 11/15/2018 - Ending Someone's Life (II)

It’s a situation we never hope to find ourselves in, and can never be fully prepared to face. A loved one is in an accident or becomes terminally ill, and you are the one God places in the position of having to choose whether or not to end life-support measures. This can fill a person (or a family) with incredibly conflicted thoughts and emotions. You want the best for your loved one. And you don’t want them to experience undue suffering. But, “pull the plug?” You know that your “yes” to that question means that your loved will pass away and come face-to-face with Jesus and their judgment. If you’ve had to make this gut-wrenching decision, call Thursday for part two of this impactful discussion and share your experience.

Take2 - 11/13/2018 - Have You Benefited From Counseling? PART

Have You Benefited From Counseling or Therapy?

For a very long time, and even to a certain extent today, to be in counseling or therapy was viewed by many people as a sign of weakness, or that a person had major problems adjusting to life. This is surely the case in some instances. But seeking out the help of a mental health professional has lost much of that stigma, and more and more people are benefiting and living better lives because of it. If you are, or have been, in some form of counseling or therapy, how has it improved your life? Many people are hesitant to take this step, so what you share could catapult one or more people into a life far greater than they ever imagined possible. Share your take on this topic on Monday’s show.
