TECH NOTE: This was supposed to be last week’s (12/6) episode but due to technical issues it didn’t post on the CPC site and we only discovered that over the weekend. Sorry about that! -A&A
Anthony and Amy laugh about their tech troubles, get in synch on “What Verse and Why!” and then talk about their favorite reads of 2021. Anthony gives an update on how Jesus Changed Everything is doing and a plug for the Christian Podcast Awards.
It’s a powerful truth that even though the world may be engulfed in flames around us, Christians can have calm in the face of calamity. Ironically, many believers are ill-equipped or even ignorant of the ways God provides hope and peace, so they are left feeling fearful or anxious because of the chaos in the world.
This week, Anthony and Amy are joined by their pastor, Dr. Michael Shafran, pastor of Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Powdersville, South Carolina.
Together they discuss how God gives believers peace amidst the storms of life and means He expects us to be mature and disciplined to avail ourselves to have a strong faith, real hope, and genuine peace despite what we read in the news headlines day after day.
Scriptures referenced include 1 Samuel 2; Psalm 42, 43, and 73; Matthew 25:13; and Revelation 22.
