William Paul Young: Die Hütte

Ausgeglaubt: ein RefLab-Podcast

Für heute haben wir uns kein eigentliches Sachbuch, sondern eine Erzählung vorgenommen. Es ist eine Geschichte, die vor gut zehn Jahren um die ganze Welt ging und nicht nur über 20 Millionen Leser*innen begeisterte, sondern in hochkarätiger Besetzung auch als Hollywood-Film umgesetzt wurde.Sie erzählt von einem Familienvater namens Mack, der seine Tochter verloren hat und erst aus seiner Verbitterung herausfindet, als ihm Gott in einer abgelegenen Waldhütte begegnet. In ausgedehnten Gesprächen mit den drei Figuren, welche für die Personen der Dreieinigkeit stehen, wird das Bild eines liebenden Gottes enthüllt, der mit unserem Leid mitfühlt und den Schmerz unseres Lebens heilen kann.Manuel und Stephan unterhalten sich über die Stärken des Buches, über das, was sie daran berührt oder auch stört – und über den Wandel unserer Zeit, der ein solches Buch zum Bestseller machen konnte…

WILLIAM PAUL YOUNG | Finding God Outside of Religion (Revisited)

Unconventional Leaders

“At the core of belief is the deepest longings of the human heart.” We are revisiting one of my favorite previous interviews with the author of The Shack, William Paul Young. Although this show is mostly about creativity and making a living doing what you love, one of the deeper issues underlying all the internal work we have to do as ambitious creatives, is addressing spiritual pain and how we view God. Paul’s work has really impacted my life and it’s an honor to get to share his message with you. WHO IS WILLIAM PAUL YOUNG?  Wm Paul Young, author of The Shack, Cross Roads, Eve, The Shack Reflections and Cross Roads Reflections, and Lies We Believe About God, was born a Canadian and raised among a stone-age tribe by his missionary parents in the highlands of what was Netherlands New Guinea (now West Papua).  He suffered great loss as a child and young adult, and now enjoys the “wastefulness of grace” with his growing family in the Pacific Northwest. Connect with Paul Young: http://wmpaulyoung.com/ QUESTIONS ASKED: How do we explore faith without ostracizing ourselves? How do you know you’ve experienced the True God? FROM TODAY’s EPISODE: Moving past hurt by religion & lies we believe about God Dealing with shame and the need to belong Overcoming the addiction of certainty  RESOURCES: TEXT us! +1 (501) 214-4307 Join our Private Facebook Group: https://bit.ly/2lPut5A Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/heatherparady --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/unconventionalleaders/message
