Persuasion 196 | Just Getting By


After four months of navigating COVID-19 worries and addressing societal inequalities, it seems that most of us are embracing the reality that our world is forever changed. We’re learning new ways to work, build community, celebrate milestones, and more. But none of it is easy or second nature. It’s actually quite difficult. Most of us are getting by… but just barely.

In this episode of Persuasion, Erin Straza and Hannah Anderson kick off a late-summer miniseries called Getting By. Each episode of the series we’ll invite a guest who has something specific to share about how we can get by in life considering the world as it is today. Conversations will cover the importance of shared experiences, enduring in trials, leaning on friend, and finding some humor to lighten the moment. Is getting by enough in these days? If we’re struggling, is that a sign of weakness… or a sign of honesty? How can our faith be strengthened even as today’s troubles bombard us on every side? Listen in for dialogue on questions like these as we pursue wholeness together. Then continue the conversation on Twitter @PersuasionCAPC or in the CAPC members-only community on Facebook.
