How do you recover from a crisis of faith? Where do you turn when it seems you don’t have the resources to face the challenges in your life?
Join me in this interview with Don Michael Hudson, associate professor at King College in Bristol, TN, as we explore how God redeems us from our inclination toward passivity.
Matthew 9:1-2 – Jesus stepped into a boat, crossed over and came to his own town. 2 Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith,he said to the man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.”
