About this Episode

Today's entry is from Dwaine. As an AirForce veteran, he experienced significant trauma from his time in combat. This experience followed him home, causing personal and relational challenges. The effects of his trauma became so burdensome that he eventually decided to end his life--that is, until a persistent pastor's words finally broke through. As you listen to Dwaine's story, we invite you to reflect on the following questions:

Are you currently carrying a burden alone? Do you have a companion for the journey?

Is there anyone around you who might be carrying a burden in isolation?

How has trauma shaped your life?

Scripture: Mark 5:1-43

What sticks out to you in these accounts of healing?

Have you ever experienced healing--emotional, physical, spiritual, etc? How did that happen?
