2-14 – Cheryl Weber

Dec 12, 2016Restory Show

Cheryl Weber wears several hats. She is the host of 100 Huntley Street in Canada. She’s also the International Producer for Crossroads Relief & Development. She has a passion for marginalized folks, particularly in the Third World. In addition, she’s on the Board of Directors of Ratanak International, one of Canada’s foremost NGOs fighting child sex trafficking in Cambodia. A former prodigal, she now pursues Jesus with a determined passion.

How Our Stories Intersected

Cheryl and I met on the set of 100 Huntley Street. She’s one of the few interviewers I’ve encountered who READS the books she interviews about! So refreshing. We immediately hit it off, and she’s been (truly) one of the most encouraging people I’ve met. She’s smart, savvy, and fun. But most of all, you’ll see her effervescent joy shine through today’s podcast. I can’t wait for you to meet her!

As in all my episodes, I pray for you at the end. It’s my sincere hope that you’ll walk away from the Restory Show changed and challenged.

    Thanks Mary, for another great podcast.
    Cheryl has an amazing story and has shared it well here.
    I hope to remember half of what she has said…
    Bless you both!

      Thanks Susan. Perhaps one day I’ll be able to afford transcripts of each episode!

  2. Char

    I have a question in regards to scars.

    I get what physical scars look like and how they can point to healing and survival, but what about emotional scars? What do they look like?

    I hear and read so much concerning scars and healing, yet it always seems so vague and superficial…never really going into details about what emotional scars look like.

    How do we discern the difference between emotional WOUNDS vs emotional SCARS?

    I often wonder if I’m viewing my emotional scars as wounds, still working to heal what’s already been healed.

    If physical scars are left over from wounds, I would think we are going to have emotional scars left over from those emotional wounds…yet they can’t be seen by the eye, so how we will then recognize them?

    • Mary DeMuth

      Wow, this is an amazing question, one that I’m not sure how to answer. I see a wound as an open sore, something that has yet to heal. A scar is evidence of healing, and it no longer festers or affects you. It does remind you that a pain has happened.

    • Nom Johnson

      Jumping in here. Your words remind me of the classic poem (now a song) by Amy Carmichael. Jim Elliot (Elisabeth Elliot’s slain mission husband) liked to speak it: “Hast Thou No Scar…no wound…Can he have followed far, who has no wound or scar?”

      If you google or you tube it, you will find many presentations. My favorite, is Elisabeth E speaking it at an Urbana youth conference, wearing a green dress. On YouTube.

      ps – I also once heard a wise preacher say, if we’re followers of Christ, one way we’ll be known is (as for Him) by our scars.

      I realize this opens another whole direction of discussion: that of abusive wounding, vs “sharing in the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings.” And we need to be able to distinguish/tell the difference. Sometimes we don’t/cant, and that runs into a whole layer of deeper hurts.

      Maybe that’s an area that needs a podcast, if it hasn’t been spoken about yet.


      • Mary DeMuth

        Well said, Nom. The differentiation between scars we have from life, and scars we endure alongside Christ is a good one, though you’re right, sometimes the line blurs.
