In their latest conversation exploring some of the Bible's stranger tales, pastors Erica and Steve take a look a curious episode from the end of the book of Acts.  While their fellow conversation partner Sarah can't be here for this episode, they look at a tale from Acts 28 when the apostle Paul survives a prison shipwreck, only to be bitten by a snake--and then how this moment slides into an extended opportunity to help other people where life takes them.  In a time when pop religion often teaches that when good things happen, God is blessing you, and that when bad things happen, it must be God's punishment, this story shows us something messier, but more honest.  God carries Paul through one difficult set of circumstances after another, but the difficult things are a part of being faithful.  Join us for a closer look at this story and where it might lead us in our own lives, here on this week's Crazy Faith Talk!
