9: What is God’s Role in Trials and Tragedies of the World? (Part 2)

God's Role in Tragedies (Part 2)

This conversation is a follow-up to ACIM Radio #6 entitled “What is God’s Role in the Trials and Tragedies of the World?” Based on the feedback received from that interview, there was some confusion around two seemingly conflicting ideas addressed:

  1. How can we choose everything that happens to us, and
  2. How can everything that happens be part of God’s larger plan at the same time?

In this podcast, Robert and Emily go deeper into this issue and much more on the topic of God’s role in our lives.
