Episode 180 – Flora & Faith Pt 6: Resting Under the Rotem

In this final episode of our Flora & Faith series, we meet two biblical characters who come to the end of themselves in the same wilderness south of Beersheba. “Wilderness” is more than just a place on a map. It’s also a territory of the soul where all our safety nets get removed, and our only hope is to depend on God. It’s here that God uses a small desert shrub to deliver a potent message of hope. By the end of this episode, you’ll have a new appreciation for the way small graces become huge gifts when we come to the end of ourselves.

Discussion Questions

  • What was your biggest takeaway from the teaching? 
  • Name one or two moments in your life when you experienced “whiplash of the soul,” i.e., an experience when things went from really good to really bad, fast. What do you remember thinking or feeling during that experience? 
  • Reflect on a wilderness moment in your life where you felt you had come to the end of yourself. How did that experience shape you? 
  • What have been some of the rotems in your life? (Think small graces that were actually huge, like the story about the Tail Gator) 
  • How will you begin living out the truths of this teaching this week?
