There are times in life when you simply have to do what your soul is longing for, even if it means letting go of something you really love. Even if it feels risky. This week I share how a health scare, a tv show, and more than a few nudges from God gave me the courage to do what I'd been wanting to do for a very long time. And why, even when it seems contrary to everything the world tells you to do, you have to do what is right for you. Sometimes you simply need to give yourself permission to pause.
Friends are some of our most treasured gifts. They help us through life's joys and sorrows. But in these times of social isolation, it is more challenging than ever to stay connected. Which is all the more reason to do so. God never intended that we do life alone. In this episode we talk about the importance of friends and ways we can stay connected; now and possibly forever.
It's rare when we get the opportunity to honor a true celebrity in our midst. But this week, we pay tribute to my father, Don Bourk, for being inducted into the South Dakota Auctioneer's Hall of Fame. You will get a glimpse of the man who forged a career out of a talent few others are blessed with. And we get to honor him for the work he continues to do after 60 years. Join me as I focus the spotlight on my personal hero as he is recognized for living a life well-lived.
Anyone else long for a time when we truly will all be one with the Spirit? It feels a long way off, doesn't it? But it doesn't have to be. We can all change our actions and live the faith we proclaim. We can trust that God is in control and do what He is calling us to. Even, maybe even especially, when it seems contrary to what our better judgment tells us to do. In this week's episode of Longing for More, we revisit the sixty's folk song, They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love and explore what that can look like in today's world. Listen now, you'll be glad you did!
