011 - Grace and Controlled Burn
Show Notes

In today’s episode of Grace Among Us, we discuss grace in the face of seemingly cyclical troubles. We use natural events in nature to describe the events in our lives that do not feel good or spiritual followed by the challenge of truly believing that all things can work together for our good and for ultimate restoration and health. 

Here’s a glance at the episode

  1. What happens when the storm is prescribed?
  2. What happens when more fire (controlled burn) is used to control the raging, uncontrolled fire?
  3. Metaphoric comparison of grace to a controlled burn. 
  4. A timed, planned fire can be used to control the threat.  
  5. Maintaining the health of all is the goal.  
  6. What appears to be a fire in our lives, might actually be a prescribed burn intended for restoration. 
  7. With the grace perspective, we can see the fire as a tool for restoration and temper our reactions accordingly. 
  8. Is it possible for every fire in our lives to be a prescribed burn?
  9. Grace isn't a big pink cloud with unicorns, but we can be curious about the bigger picture at work. 
  10. God wants to do a big work in us!
