This series builds upon two previous Reflections collections – Psalm 23: “You don’t have to be afraid anymore,” and The Lord’s Prayer: “You don’t have to feel alone anymore.” The programs are presented by Ken Curtis, who was diagnosed with advanced cancer with little prospect for survival.
Join Ken as he visits fascinating sites in Israel, among them the location traditionally said to be where Jesus gave the Beatitudes. They are a brief collection of sayings about blessedness or happiness, which was the opening to his Sermon on the Mount. Ken explores the richness and depth of the Beatitudes and challenges us to find blessedness out of our brokenness, a most difficult task for those who are confronted with cancer or any life trauma. We see how the Beatitudes provide a whole new dimension in dealing with our crisis. Along the way he shares his own journey in dealing with advanced cancer, including the process of sorting through various treatment options which often went far beyond the traditional methods recommended by doctors.
