Coming March 15th: What is your marriage based on? Physical attraction? Convenience? Emotional connection? You’ve heard that God should be at the center of your marriage, but what does that look like? How can you make that happen? Answers to these questions and more on the program next week!
Question: What is the foundation of YOUR marriage?
March 8th: Dr Carol and Al talk about the nearly universal but often lonely journey of grief. Bits of personal story, Scripture, ideas on making the journey more successful, and even a few tears make up the program. Several listeners wrote about their own journey of grief, and we share these on the program also. We share resources to help with the journey, and talk about what difference a connection with God makes in your grief.
SOMETHING BIGGER THAN DEATH -
Dr. Carol’s weekly Memo: “How close has death come to you? What does it look like?
Even though some have tried, there’s no way to make death look pretty. And that’s actually a good thing: death is not supposed to look pretty. And it’s no respecter of persons.
I think of my professor, who cried freely in telling how he held his wife in his arms, now blind and in constant pain from cancer, and told her Goodbye. Relief of her pain at her death didn’t lessen the pain in HIS heart, or that of their two young boys.
I think of a friend who lost his father just a few months ago, and that just a few months after losing his mother. He knows that neither of his parents would have wanted to live a long time without the other, but the loss has been so hard for him.
And I think of my friend and patient who was pregnant with a long-awaited and prayed-for baby, only to find part way through her pregnancy that her child had died inside her. How do you comfort a mother at a time like that?
Faith or no faith, death is an enemy. The Bible calls it “the last enemy.” No wonder poet Dylan Thomas wrote, “Do not go gentle into that good night.” …“
(Watch this short video to see how mourning is different, though still real, for a Christian .)
- Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
- 1 Corinthians 15:51-55 “Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed– in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”"
- Psalm 116:15 “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.”
- Revelation 21:4 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
