CrossPolitic Show and Podcast
About This Show
CrossPolitic (Christ over Politics) Podcast and Show mixes the taboo formula of faith, culture, and politics in order to bring the clarity of the gospel into muddle America. We are a community of Christians who desire to see the Lordship of Christ in every corner of our culture, reigning over every politician, and changing every individual for our good and His glory.
Our hosts are made up of pastors, deacons, filmmakers, and more, and long to see our nation once again recognize Jesus as the redeemer of our fallen nation. Our hosts interview notable public figures (including presidential candidates Senator Ted Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson), write books, preach at churches, make films, and utilize every avenue possible to declare the gospel of our Lord to our broken world.

This week we’re joined by Hannah Grieser, author of The Clouds Ye So Much Dread. The Clouds Ye So Much Dread is a beautiful blend of memoir, theology, meditation, and storytelling. Each of these chapters–from dreading the birth of her first child, to living in unfamiliar and dangerous places, to facing the news that her son had been diagnosed with cancer–describes the stories through which Hannah has come to see that hard or uncertain circumstances, rather than being cause for doubt and dread, can instead become the unasked-for means that our loving Father uses to turn us toward Him and to show us His faithfulness. Told in Hannah’s graceful yet punchy prose, the reflections in this powerful book will challenge readers to revisit their own hard times and see how God can take the storms that we most fear and turn them into downpours of blessings.
