Where is God when bad things happen? Part 4: Getting out of the mess we're in

with Deborah Huebsch

When it feels like the world is a mess, is it naive to think that God is still here ... or can somehow help? Our guest shares her own journey in getting to know—and experience—the divine power that, she says, is reliable help we can turn to and lean on no matter how big the problem

Deborah Huebsch: While I was in college, I had a really bad experience with the church that I was attending, and it was such a horrible moment for me because I thought if this is Christianity, I don’t want any part of it. If this is God, I don’t want any part of God either. And so I just opted out and became basically an agnostic and just sort of left any sense of deity or higher power. I just left it behind me.
