Advent - Week 1

2019-12-0200:41:42

It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas in this long-awaited first Advent episode of the She Reads Truth podcast! Raechel and Amanda are joined by She Reads Truth’s content director, John Greco, as they step into the anticipation and celebration of the season. What is Advent? Why do we love it so much? What was it like to wait for the Messiah? Why did Jesus come? Clad in holiday shirts and socks, the group talks traditional Advent scriptures, favorite Christmas carols, and a little Charlie Brown and Linus too! John weaves a Scripture tapestry, Raechel stomps a dragon, and Amanda refuses to sing on-air—all while eagerly awaiting the arrival of Jesus, our Thrill of Hope. Read with Us: This episode corresponds to Week 1 of the She Reads Truth A Thrill of Hope: Advent 2019 reading plan found on the She Reads Truth app and SheReadsTruth.com. Advent 2019 Collection at ShopSheReadsTruth.com Open Your Bibles: (passages referenced in this episode) Genesis 3Luke 2:1–20 John 1:14Genesis 3:14–151 Corinthians 2:7–8Matthew 2Hebrews 2:14–151 John 3:8 Romans 16:201 Corinthians 15:26Other Links: “What Is Advent” — free pdf from the Advent 2019 Study BookLinus’s speech from A Charlie Brown Christmas Bottle of Tears mason jar ornament“A Thrill of Hope” art print by Caleb FairesThe Celtic dragon that Raechel’s family stomps at EasterShe Reads Truth Advent playlist on SpotifyUpcoming Reading Plans: Genesis: Back to the Beginning — plan begins 1/6/20Socials: She Reads Truth on InstagramShe Reads Truth on FacebookShe Reads Truth shopRaechel Myers on InstagramAmanda Bible Williams on Instagram
On this episode of the She Reads Truth podcast, founders Reachel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams, and She Reads Truth content director, John Greco, go in-depth about the tension of the “already and not yet” of the gospel. How do we find beauty in brokenness? How does God enter into our trials? How do we give thanks when we are suffering? Amanda, Raechel, and John talk about the first Thanksgiving and how the holiday has been a delicate dance of celebration and sorrow from the start. Amanda remembers what it felt like to give thanks while her 4-year-old son was on life support. And the group discusses the right-now and future hope we have in Jesus. Read with Us: This episode corresponds to Week 2 of the She Reads Truth Mourning & Dancing reading plan found on the She Reads Truth app and SheReadsTruth.com. Mourning & Dancing Study Book Open Your Bibles: (passages referenced in this episode) Matthew 9:14–17John 14:18Ecclesiastes 3:1–8John 56:8Acts 16:25Revelation 21:3–5Psalm 56:8Colossians 1:13John 6:68Genesis 50:201 Thessalonians 5:16–18John 16:20Other Links: Who Was at the First Thanksgiving? (History.com article)“You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you. It is easy to say you believe a rope to be strong and sound as long as you are merely using it to cord a box. But suppose you had to hang by that rope over a precipice. Wouldn’t you then first discover how much you really trusted it?” ―C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed “No one ever told me that grief felt so like fear.” —C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed“Fidelity to the Word of God and not to an outcome.” —Lore Ferguson WilbertSquanto and the Miracle of Thanksgiving by Eric Metaxas
On this first-ever episode of the She Reads Truth podcast, founders Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams go deep fast on topics of loss, grief, joy, and hope. How do celebration and sorrow coexist in the life of a believer? Does one cancel out the other? What does Scripture have to say about suffering? What does it mean to lament? Amanda reflects on her youngest son’s 11-month hospital stay, and Raechel shares about the role the Bible played in one of the darkest days of her life. The conversation isn’t light, but it’s good, honest, and hopeful. Read with Us: This episode corresponds to the She Reads Truth Mourning & Dancing reading plan found on the She Reads Truth app and SheReadsTruth.com. Mourning & Dancing Study Book Open Your Bibles: (passages referenced in this episode) Psalm 3Revelation 21:1–5Psalm 34:18Psalm 71John 16:331 Thessalonians 4:13–18Hebrews 6:19Psalm 139:16Psalm 56:8Proverbs 14:13Romans 8:31–39Other Links: “How to Write a Psalmic Lament” worksheet — free pdf downloadToby comes home (Facebook video from Vanderbilt Children's Hospital)“A Thrill of Hope” Advent 2019 study bookRaechel & Amanda’s book, She Reads Truth: Holding Tight to Permanent in a World That’s Passing Away“Come, Ye Sinners” hymnSonic Drive-In dealsA cute neckerchief Socials: She Reads Truth on InstagramShe Reads Truth on FacebookShe Reads Truth shopRaechel Myers on I

I had every intention of listening to this podcast the first day but wasn't able to and now I am so thankful I didn't. This was just the encouragement I needed this morning and I will likely listen to it again. Experiencing some sorrow in my life and this podcast spoke to me. It had great content and was thought provoking. Cannot wait for future episodes!

Ugh, I was raised in a church that asking why it hurting were a reflection of a lack of faith. Thank you for for reinforcing that God gave us all these emotions for a reason and feeling them is okay. We can be suffering and low and *still* recognize that God is good.
