Friday, May 29, 2015"Divorce and Remarriage" Host(s): Rubel Shelly
Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

Divorce is not a good thing. Respected pastor, college president, and author Rubel Shelly says it over and over again in his book, Divorce and Remarriage (Leafwood, ISBN# 978-0-89112-362-0). It disrupts the lives of people who got married with the full intention of living together until death separated them. It disrupts the lives of the children and those who love them. But what should we do when we find ourselves abused by our spouse? What about mental instability? Adultery? What should those who find themselves divorced plan to do about a future marriage? In today’s encore conversation, Rubel Shelly addresses these difficult questions from a biblical perspective, in a way that pursues the heart of God and offers hope for those hurt from the devastation of divorce.

Globally, one in three women has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused. In the US alone, a woman is assaulted every nine seconds.

While the role of women in ministry can be a bit of a debate among some, the truth is, women have served the Body of Christ and the Kingdom of God throughout the course of humanity. God used women for specific purposes and assignments, and we read about them in the pages of Scripture and in the books of even more recent history. Carol McLeod encourages women to understand that God calls each of us out of our insecurities, past our place of pain and into a place of ministry. Regardless of how flawed or floundering you feel your life is, don’t miss her conversation with Lynne and her desire to help you see the purpose and plans God has for you!
