It’s a topic that stirs up fear or hope…for most, often a bit of both: end times. Christ’s return and the judgment of all mankind inspire a holy fear and breathless anticipation. Mitch Kruse concludes his theology series with us by sharing Biblical facts we can know about an otherwise mysterious future. He’ll take your questions during the second half of his March Mid-Morning visit…with questions about this or anything else you’d like to ask!

Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

Many Christians fall victim to one of two main problems when it comes to work: either they are idle in their work, or they have made an idol of it. Both of these mind-sets are deadly misunderstandings of how God intends for us to think about our employment. Sebastian Traeger spends the hour with Lynne unpacking the powerful ways in which the gospel can transform how we do what we do, releasing us from pressures and help us find freedom in a work ethic rooted in serving Christ and displaying The Gospel at Work (Zondervan, ISBN# 978-0-310-51397-1).

Inferior. Second-best. Marginalized. Christian women often view themselves negatively and feel that no matter how hard they try, they are never good enough. Suzanne Burden and Jamie Wright, co-authors of Reclaiming Eve (Beacon Hill Press, ISBN# 978-0-8341-3226-9) set the record straight during their visit to Mid-Morning. Tucked into the pages of Scripture is a blueprint for women that sets them free to serve Christ alongside their brothers, as full partners in building God’s Kingdom, and Suzanne and Jamie will explain how.

The Bible is far more than “The Good Book.” It is the inspired, inerrant, holy Word of God, revealed by God to its scribes. And it is the way the Creator of the Universe teaches us even today. From the history of the Old Testament to the gospel and theology of the New Testament, the Bible is our lifeline to the God we serve. If you’re curious how to study and use the Bible…or ways you might have taken the Bible out of context to control your life, the lives of others, or even God, don’t miss Lynne’s conversation with Mitch Kruse. And if you have a question for Mitch, you can ask during the second half of the show!

Those with mental illnesses are too often reduced to caricatures and ghosts - or treated as though they simply don't exist. But they do exist. One in every four people suffers from some kind of mental illness - from depression to schizophrenia and beyond. Many of these people, and the family and friends who love them, are sitting in churches week after week, suffering in stigmatized silence. Amy Simpson, author of Troubled Minds (IVP, ISBN# 978-0-8308-4304-6) and Kathy Bayes from the Fort Wayne NAMI chapter join Lynne to speak the truth about mental illness and offer hope and love to those facing it!
