We often assume that being a Christian means always following the rules and living a quiet, respectable life, out of trouble and without drawing bad attention to ourselves.  And... sometimes that's true.  But sometimes the followers of Jesus knowingly go into situations they know will be provocative or will end with jail, punishments, or even the specter of death.  And yet, in several different stories from the book of Acts, early Christian witnesses like Peter, Paul, and Silas, found themselves in trouble and behind bars, only to have divine intervention open up new possibilities.  What do all of these strange stories mean--and what guidance do they give us for our own faith and witness in the face of questions and issues of our own day?  How do we balance our bold witness with our real--and, we believe, God-given--responsibilities to those we love, like spouses, and children?  These are the kinds of questions we're going to look at as pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve turn to another set of weird Bible stories in this week's episode of Crazy Faith Talk!
