About this Episode

In this episode, Dan sits down with Abby Karsten and Chris Gordon. Abby is the Women’s Ministry Leader of the Kirk of the Hills Church in St. Louis, and Christine (Chris) is an author of Bible studies for women and co-founder of At His Feet. They talk a bit about their work in their churches and on writing Bible study curriculum, but spend most of the conversation on a subject, quite literally, close to all our hearts: the body. Our bodies are not incidental, “We are integrated, spiritual and physical beings” Chris insists. Our bodies are how we experience the goodness of God’s creation: watching the dawn break, hearing Beethoven’s 5th, eating Indian food, holding a baby. And yet they can also be the location, and often the source of profound pain, shame, and longing. None of this is foreign to our incarnate Savior, the trio reminds us. Jesus took on a body, was DEPENDENT on the body of His mother, worked with His body, and yes, probably got some splinters.

Enter for the opportunity to win a copy of The Servant King: A Study of the Gospel of Luke by Hope Blanton and Christine B. Gordon. The book is provided courtesy of 19Baskets.
