December 20, 2016 – Faith & Religion: Finding Joy in the Face of Difficult Times
Season 9, Episode 51
So, how are you doing? – it’s the holidays – have you taken a reading on your feelings yet? — On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith, joy, and hope – even in the face of what is sometimes difficulty. You may be one of those people for whom the holiday season – this time of the year – is a time of indescribable joy, whether you’re celebrating Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Christmas, or another holiday… But there are many for whom the holiday season is a difficult time. We’ll talk today about how we find both hope and joy in the midst of the December holiday season. In many ways 2016 was a very difficult year – the pulse tragedy, a rancorous political season, the more than 50% of the voting public for whom the election did not come out as they hoped, the death of a number of legendary entertainers, and of course the innumerable personal losses that many have experienced in this past year. How do we find hope and joy in the midst of difficulty? Holidays, hope and joy in the midst of difficult times — how will each of us make our way through this holiday season? – all that and more is on this installment of Friends Talking Faith.
