Around the meal table, needs are met. As participants we celebrate the common solution to our physical need - bread. While we do so, bread of another type is broken as well. Help, hope and encouragement are shared to meet the needs of our struggles, heartaches and questions. Breaking Bread is reminiscent of these life giving conversations. This podcast strives to meet some of our common needs through our common solution – The Bread of Life.

Uncertainty, unpredictability, unreliability, riskiness, chanciness, unsureness, changeability - 2020.  It’s one thing to have expectations gone unmet.  It’s another thing to be so uncertain that expectations can’t even be set. Those are the days we are in. And yet, there is an advantage these days afford. In this episode of Breaking Bread, Arlan Miller helps us see those advantages.

  • We learn flexibility. A lot is out of our control.
  • We learn childlikeness. God is our Father.
  • We learn dependence. God is our supplier.
  • We learn to be responsible in those things we know.
  • We learn to shift our trust from those things uncertain to the one who is – God.

It is easy to overlook the losses our kids are enduring these days. In this episode of Breaking Bread, Craig Stickling highlights what many of our kids are experiencing as their lives have been put on hold during these days of COVID-19. Fortunately, parents are equipped with a few helpful tools to minister to their losses.

Some tools for the toolset:

  • Acknowledge their loss. Don’t down-play it.
  • Kids have had limited experience. Bring perspective.
  • Connect with their loss. Resist shifting the focus to yourself.
  • They will be fearful. Help them express it.
  • They will be frustrated. Help them channel it.
  • They will be scattered. Help them focus.
  • They will be absorbed in the present. Help them see the future.
