107: Navigating Hard Questions (and Not-So-Great Christians!) with Mary Jo Sharp

TLR 107 - Mary Jo Sharp

Do you feel inadequate when it comes to answering hard questions of faith?

In this episode of The Living Room, I have the privilege of interviewing theology professor and author, Mary Jo Sharp about Dark Room Faith – a video curriculum designed to address the objections many young people have about the Christian faith. This free curriculum can be used by youth leaders but also parents to help them talk through the questions teens often face.

But we also talk about how many millenials are leaving the faith because of hypocrisy in the church and her book, Why I Still Believe: A Former Atheist’s Reckoning with the Bad Reptutation Christians Give a Good God. I hope you’ll check out all of Mary Jo’s excellent material – and share this episode with a friend.

Embracing Trust Challenge – Also on YouTube!

I have so enjoyed hearing from people who are doing the Embracing Trust Challenge! And it’s not too late to start because it can be done anytime and anywhere.

All five days of the challenge have been uploaded to YouTube – but you definitely want to sign up to receive the FREE worksheets and daily emails before you start. Resist the impulse to watch all five days at once, because the best way to get the most out of the challenge, is to live in each truth for awhile.

In fact, you may want to do it over five weeks rather than five days! Because each one of the truths from Proverbs 3:5-6 have the power to transform your life.
