Is there more to John 3:16-17 than “God so loved the world…?” In this podcast Rudy Rasmus from St. John’s Downtown Houston and author of Love.Period, and Jackson Henry, Director of Music Ministries at Discipleship Ministries, takes us deeper into our Lenten series as they share on the theme of Recovery.

This podcast is based on the worship series Rehab and Rehab: A Group Study, created by staff at Discipleship Ministries of the United Methodist Church. During each podcast, you will encounter a leading edge pastor and a Discipleship Ministries staff person as they wrestle with what it means to enter into a time of spiritual, emotional, and physical change.  The five-part series is hosted by Craig Kennet Miller, author of Boomer Spirituality: Seven Values for the Second Half of Life and Director of Congregational Development.

The strategy and work of recovery prepare us to hear even more clearly the Good News that our faults and weaknesses do not define us. Recovery has a destination – healing and wholeness. Easter reveals God’s ultimate purpose for the world is not condemnation, but redemption. The redemption that can only be won by God’s redeeming power.
