The last six weeks have been full of many unexpected surprises, and this week’s surprise was that I a radio station interviewed me about my struggle with alcohol and how the church should respond. The radio station read my article from Relevant Magazine, and they reached out to me about hearing more of my story.
You can hear the interview HERE.
The interview gives a very summarized version of my struggle with alcohol, some thoughts on secrets and freedom, and what I would say to someone struggling with secret addictions.
As a slight point of clarification (the full interview was about 20 minutes and they cut it down to around five), when asked when my struggle with alcohol began, I reference incidents from 9 to 12 years ago. These were isolated incidents which set patterns in my life for how I would deal with stress. This was not when my addiction took control.
Please give it a listen!
