“Where Much Is Given Much Is Required"

What does it look like to support each other and succor the weak? How can we practice community and belonging and strengthening each other?

As our hosts explore these questions in today’s episode, they also want you to remember that the City of Enoch took over 300 years to become celestial. It was a process of centuries. So as we try to practice the law of consecration and become like the City of Enoch, let’s give ourselves grace, practice gratitude, and find ways to lift each other in small ways.

Real Talk & Friends - John Hilton III (Easter Special)
2890

Have you ever wondered why, as Christians and members of the Church, we don’t often associate ourselves with the cross? Do you, personally, have an aversion to the cross, meaning you don’t wear jewelry with a cross or you feel uncomfortable if it’s used as decoration?

John Hilton III, professor of religion at BYU and recent author of Considering the Cross: How Calvary Connects Us with Christ, is here today with Ganel-Lyn and Scott to help answer these very questions. 

After diving into the history of the cross after a friend asked him why we (in the Church) focus on Gethsemane so much in reference to the Atonement, John discovered that there is a misunderstanding in our culture of the symbol of the cross. 

He delves into this misunderstanding, along with many other questions, in today’s interview and in his new book. Tune in right now if you want to know what he has to say! And check out @thelovingchrist on Instagram if you want to learn more of Christ and the cross.

Real Talk & Friends - T.C. Christensen
3084

T.C. Christensen, director of 17 Miracles, The Cokeville Miracle, The Fighting Preacher, and more, found his passion through making faith-promoting films that allow the audience to wrestle a little bit while also coming back to God.

He’s found guidance from Pete Seeger, a singer and songwriter who said the key to the future of the world is finding the greatest positive stories and letting them be told. Positive or negative stories shape people’s lives and attitudes, which ultimately shape the future of the world. That’s why T.C.’s goal is to help people feel uplifted.

His hero in filmmaking is Frank Capra, the creator of It’s a Wonderful Life. Frank loved to tell the stories of the little person—the person who’s an everyday schmo but is trapped in some situation and realizes if they’ll stick to their guns and do what’s right, they’ll make a difference.

On answering how he’s stayed the path of positive, uplifting filmmaking and not getting caught up in Hollywood gimmicks, T.C. said he decides what he will and won’t do way before any decision is presented. That way when he’s approached with an opportunity, there’s no decision to be made.

T.C. makes films with relatable protagonists—normal people that get put in an extraordinary circumstance and then they behave extraordinarily, maybe not for their whole life, but for that moment. 

He has learned that the common thread in church history stories is to endure to the end. You’ve got to reach in your gut and keep going and trying. All of us at times feel like we don’t fit the mold. We’re not alone in feeling this way. Just keep going and endure to the end. 

In 17 Miracles, the stories and miracles are true and they show that God is aware of us individually. God is out there and He’s watching out for us.

T.C. loves trying to bolster people with positive stories. He wants to give people things to hold on to that help them feel better as they get up in the morning and move on with life. His hope is that people will see these experiences, these evidences of God’s love and know this: I’m worth saving.

Real Talk & Friends - Brad Wilcox
3390

Have you ever wondered what grace really means or how it really can help you in your life?. Join us today for a phenomenal episode of Real Talk with our dear friend Brother Brad Wilcox, Second Counselor in the Young Men General Presidency, to talk about this and much, much more. Brother Wilcox is famous for giving the number-one most-viewed BYU devotional ever, “His Grace is Sufficient,” and he’s renowned for being a grace expert. He’s got some good news: grace is working. “It’s time to hear Him and not hear them,” he says in response to the noise of our commotional world. And to the youth, he has a special invitation to “step it up” instead of slacking off during the coronavirus pandemic: “COVID is not a vacation from your covenants.” Listen in, as Scott Sorensen & Ganel-Lyn Condie talk with Brother Brad, and share with us what stands out to you from Brother Wilcox’s message.
