6 in 10 Canadians say they struggle with loneliness. Today on the podcast Ruth Graham shares with Cheryl Weber and Mark Masri about her book "Transforming Loneliness" and how many of us feel ashamed to admit we are lonely.
We are so very connected in culture through technology and social media but what we yearn for is a true emotional connection with those around us.
She shares the impacts loneliness can have on our health and how we can develop relationships even when we find it hard to connect and how we can ask God to transform our loneliness.

Answering the Biggest Questions About God

In a world where scientific evidence sets the bar for what we believe, and where there are incredible levels of human suffering, it’s hard for many to believe there could be a Creator or a God. Certainly one that neither science acknowledges or one that doesn’t really explain the dilemma of human suffering.  Today on the podcast Mark Masri and Greg Musselman are joined by Mark Clark who shares insights from his book, “The Problem of God”.  As a skeptic who became a Christian and then a pastor, all the while exploring answers to the most difficult questions raised against Christianity, Mark Clark found irrefutable answers.  Growing up in an atheistic home, struggling through his parents' divorce, acquiring Tourette syndrome and OCD in his teen years, finally led him to search for truth through science, philosophy, and history, eventually finding answers in Christianity. In a disarming, winsome, and persuasive way, The Problem of God responds to many of the God questions in our society.
