Episode 52: A World in Chaos – A Conversation with Franklin Graham

August 31, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch, Franklin Graham

Welcome back to Fearless! After a longer than anticipated summer break, I’m excited to continue sharing with you how we can engage the culture with a Fearless faith. Today my guest is my father, Franklin Graham. My family and I have been privileged for the last several years to serve alongside my father’s organization, Samaritan’s Purse, as they minister to military veterans and their spouses in Alaska through Operation Heal Our Patriots (OHOP). Through spiritual refreshment, physical renewal and marriage enrichment, we’ve seen miracles of the heart that only God could do with couples who are struggling in their marriages. I’m so incredibly thankful to be able to witness it and share some of it with you this week. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association was even able to send police officer couples for two weeks as well, ministering to those who have been wounded serving on the frontlines of our communities’ every day. But this week is heavy. Violence and chaos have engulfed Afghanistan, once again putting the country in the hands of the evil Taliban regime, which provided sanctuary to Osama bin Laden as he and al-Qaeda planned the 9/11 attacks that occurred 20 years ago next month. There’s also the recent earthquake in Haiti and the coronavirus pandemic. When 9/11 happened, my grandfather Billy Graham spoke to the nation at the National Cathedral. As part of his message, he said, “We’ve seen so much that brings tears to our eyes and makes us all feel a sense of anger. But God can be trusted, even when life seems at its darkest.” Billy Graham's 9/11 Message from the Washington National Cathedral Please join with me in lifting our nation and the world up in prayer during this dark time.

Are Science and Faith Compatible? Why Eric Metaxas Says Yes

October 19, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

Show Notes Welcome to FEARLESS! On this episode, I’m talking with New York Times bestselling author and dear friend Eric Metaxas about science, faith, Biblical archaeology and what’s happening in the church and culture. In our conversation, Eric shares some of the incredible discoveries that have been made in the fields of science and archaeology that point to Creation, the Bible’s historical accuracy and, most importantly, the existence of God. It’s all part of his new book, “Is Atheism Dead?” We also talk about the enduring legacy of his book “Bonhoeffer,” and how the story of German pastor and Nazi resistor Dietrich Bonhoeffer continues to resonate with us today. This podcast is a great reminder that we don’t need to be fearful of the times that we live in—nothing has taken God by surprise. So, I hope you enjoy this podcast and are deeply encouraged in your walk with the Lord.

A Fearless Faith Begins with Fear

October 5, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

Show Notes Welcome to FEARLESS! On this episode, we’re talking about how a fearless faith begins with fear. Over the years, I’ve come to understand that a fearless and sustaining faith can only come when we fear God. But what does it mean to fear? In the simplest terms, it means that we take God seriously. We respect Him, we obey Him, we submit to His discipline and we worship Him in awe. And there is a blessing and peace that comes when we fear the Lord. Proverbs 9:10 tells us that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Join me on this episode of FEARLESS as we talk more about my concerns for the Church and what it means to have a faith centered on a foundational understanding that our God is a Holy God who deserves our love, honor, respect and, yes, even our fear.

Jane Graham on Life, Faith, Motherhood and Family

September 21, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch, Jane Graham

Welcome to FEARLESS! This episode is one that I’ve been wanting to capture for a long time. My special guest this week is one of the greatest influences in my life, someone who I want everyone to know, and that’s my mom, Jane Graham. Over the years, so many people have asked questions about my mom. Though she’s Franklin Graham’s wife and Billy Graham’s daughter-in-law, my mother isn’t really one for the spotlight. Her ministry has always been more private and behind the scenes, taking care of our family and serving those around her in our community. I’m so excited that I get to share a little bit of her with you this week. We’re going to talk about her early life, how she met my dad in Montreat, NC, the influence of my grandmother Ruth Bell Graham, her faith, being in ministry and the challenges and joys of motherhood and marriage. I hope that you’re inspired and encouraged as you listen my conversation with my mom. It’s an episode that you’re not going to want to miss.
