512: Missing Jesus in the pandemic

“Hey Bart. As I grew up, prayer was touted as the answer to everything. Now with the shutdowns and loss associated with COVID-19, I still miss the feeling I had when I could ‘give it all to Jesus.’ I suppose this is part of taking back control of my own life and not depending on a higher, all-knowing power to save me all the time. But I still feel feel like I’ve lost something very powerful, if only in my own mind. Any ideas of how to move beyond this? Is it just a grieving process that I need to go through?” – Jonathan

“Hi Bart. I am concerned. During this strange and surreal time (I work in a hospital in the UK), I am finding myself more and more ‘sucked in’ to Christianity and have been attending Church services regularly. I do not want to be Christian but I am finding much support and solace within their boundaries and I can feel myself submitting to their ways!!” – Debbie

In this episode, we attempt an answer to both these (related) questions and give a little preview of the next one. Includes an update on life during the pandemic.
