Unshaken when it feels like I have little to be thankful for

With all the challenges we’ve faced this year, we might find it difficult to be grateful this time of the year. A look at Scriptures, however, will show us that we can see and trust God’s goodness even in the darkest of times. Today I want to encourage you with a message on the story of Stephen from Acts 6-7 that I titled “Unshaken when it feels like I have little to be thankful for.”

Dear Lina: What are the most frequent questions you are getting about COVID-19?

The massive spike in new COVID-19 cases poses great challenges to all of us again. Today I’m putting on my doctor hat and will be answering the three most frequent questions I am getting about COVID-19.

  1. Should I gather with my family for Thanksgiving?
  2. Is it unbiblical for Christians to self-isolate out of fear for catching COVID?
  3. When a vaccine becomes available, do you recommend I take it?

Dear Lina: Are we living in the end times?

One of the most frequently asked questions right now is if we’re living in the end times. In today’s podcast I’ll address what we mean by “end times,” when the end times have started, and how this belief should inform our lifestyle. Take a listen!

Dear Lina: Should women be pastors?

The topic of whether women are allowed to be pastors in a church is a continuing debate among many denominations. The biblical texts often referred to when arguing on the matter are complex, and despite extensive studies spanning over decades, Christians do not agree on the interpretation of the biblical material nor on the role of women in the church. The question of women’s leadership in the church is one that will likely not go away, and today I’ll try to address it from a different perspective. Take a listen!

Dear Lina: I’m losing hope. What should I do?

Dear Lina: I’ve lost my job, my marriage, and my church in the last few years, and now COVID-19. I’m losing hope. What should I do? In today’s podcast I want to encourage you in the Lord as I answer this question and remind you of how to cling to hope when we’re utterly burdened beyond our strength.
