In episode 90,we take a deep dive into a topic we’ve already tapped into with Marti and Miriam, among others: addiction. Vernon Layne gets transparent about his decades-long addiction to drugs and alcohol, and what seemed like the futile efforts of others (and himself) to break free. His mom watched the entire time, and while there were plenty of tears, she was never afraid, because she knew God would bring her son home. However, as we explore this powerful story, we also press hard into what addiction is (and isn’t), and how our assumptions (and pride) can cause even the best-intentioned person to cause immense harm. The solution: Philippians 2’s call to “take on the mindset of Christ”… a hard, but vital invitation.
How can you “take on the mindset of Christ”?
