Have there been times in your life where you have been shunned? Pastor Matthew Dehnert of CrossRoads Community Evangelical Free in Casselton, ND church joins us to talk about The Man Born blind and how we can tie in this man’s experience to our own lives and look even deeper as how this connects to this time of Lent.
We have all been affected by addiction in some way-whether we are the one who has faced the addiction or it is a family member or friend. One thing we know is that the days of deprivation, testing and temptation are familiar to any addict. Pastor Jim Mucerino of Bemidji Baptist Church joins us to talk about the connection to Addiction and our experience during Lent as well as the hope that comes from Jesus and how chains are being broken, especially through their Simple Steps Recovery program.
The Transfiguration of Jesus is a pivotal moment in Christian teaching. The setting that takes place on the mountain is presented as the point where human nature meets God with Jesus himself as the connecting point, acting as the bridge between heaven and earth. Pastor Joel Newton of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Park Rapids joins us to talk about The Transfiguration and how this moment ties into your journey with the Lord.
We know that Jesus spends 40 days in the desert but what does this experience show and reveal to us? On the next Live JOY Share Joy, Pastor Paul Rose of the First Assembly of God Church in Bemidji joins us to talk about this time in the desert and connect it to our experiences but how we draw closer to Jesus and ultimately deepen our walk as a Christian.
