I regularly listen to the ‘This American Life” podcast. They find some of the most amazing stories, and tell them very, very well. Every once in a while I’m compelled to share them. (If you’re not familiar with ‘This American Life’, you can read about it here.)
A recent episode entitled ‘This I Used to Believe’ included a the story of a conversation that developed between an outspoken Christian man and a woman who declared herself an agnostic following the death of her close friend. She has questions. He has answers. The story is told from her perspective, so it’s a look at what the ‘Christian’ response sounds like to someone who is looking for real, honest answers about God, suffering, and meaning in life.
I promise it’s an interesting story. Grab a beverage, click on the audio player, and settle in for a bit.
What are your thoughts? Do you see yourself in this conversation?
