Fear, COVID-19 and the Enneagram

with Karen Clark

S.01 EPISODE 8

We had Karen Clark on and talked about how to navigate fear in the midst of Covid19. We discussed the three triads of the Enneagram and how knowing our Enneagram number can help us healthily navigate fear.

Karen shared that ultimately knowing the goodness of God is the foundation of navigating fear healthily; perfect love casts out fear.

Thomas, Jason, and Karen talk about some of the fear-mongering theologies that are running rampant online.  When we understand who God is we understand that God didn’t send Covid19. God is not the instigator of death, He came to give us life and life more abundantly.

Finally, they discussed how God is a good Father who is available to us now in the midst of our fear. A Father who weeps with us while also lifting us up so we can see our circumstances the way He does and live in peace.

Quotes

“Fear should walk under the authority of love.”

“Fear is meant to be used as a road sign to let you know you need to change course. Fear is not meant to control.”

“Any end time view that ramps up fear, stop engaging in it, He’s a good Dad.”

Thomas Floyd is a psychotherapist that loves to chat about the intersectionality of faith and psychology. He passionately pursues the belief that being spiritually mature means also being emotionally mature. He lived in Chile for the first 11 years of his life and now lives with his wife Sarah in North Carolina. He is an enneagram enthusiast, a theology junky, and a sports FANATIC.

Jason & Karen Clark lead A Family Story ministries. Their mission is to encourage sons and daughters to grow sure in the love of an always-good heavenly Father. They live in North Carolina with their three children.

THOMAS JAY OORD / GOD CAN’T

“Given that we start with God’s power…we end up giving God the kind of capabilities that make God culpable; in other words, morally responsible for not only causing but allowing bad things…I think there are good biblical reasons to object to that standard view of Gods power.” Thomas Jay Oord
