Welcome everyone and pull up a seat at the table. It’s Lunchtime in Rome. Tonight’s episode 189 is entitled,“ When to give good advice”. When someone is upset you are typically DYING to tell them what to do or say. However, at The Table we all know that we are to join them IN their emotion and not to try to fix them. However, that is what we're supposed to do FIRST. There is a time for advice, counsel, and encouragement. The question we'll be talking about tonight is, "When is that time? How long do we comfort before we can offer them our advice, wisdom, thoughts, and reason?”

Being alone is the worst. Good times aren’t as good and bad times are worse when you are all alone. Romans 12:15 says to rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn. That is how you keep people from being alone and what this podcast is all about. We demonstrate that in the first 15 minutes of the podcast and talk about it for the rest.

So while it may not be 12:15 in Rome, we’re treating it like it is Lunchtime in Rome!
