    Service (ft. Bethany Allen) | Unforced Rhythms of Grace E7

    Service (ft. Bethany Allen) | Unforced Rhythms of Grace E7

    What if serving others is more rewarding than we think? Bethany Allen argues that we often only consider the costs of service, but rarely consider the deeper rewards it brings: lasting joy and fulfillment. She not only encourages us to see and sacrifice for one another in service, but also offers us five principles to guide as we serve.

    "You can't follow Jesus alone."
    John Mark shows us the essential nature of community in our walk with Jesus: how God adopts us into his family and the role our brothers and sisters play in our formation. He concludes with an encouragement to be intentional in finding community, and when we do, to put down deep roots.

    Solitude (ft. Tyler Staton) | Unforced Rhythms of Grace E4

    Solitude (ft. Tyler Staton) | Unforced Rhythms of Grace E4

    "When you're waiting, you're not doing nothing. You're doing the most important something there is. You're allowing your soul to grow up. If you can't wait, you can't become what God created you to be." - Unknown
    In a world that is full of noise and activity, solitude is deeply uncomfortable for many of us. Yet it's core to the way of Jesus. Tyler explores the importance of solitude in our apprenticeship, slowing us down to God's pace and giving us hope in the waiting. He ends with practical examples of how to create rhythms of solitude in our everyday lives.

    Scripture (ft. Tim Mackie and Tyler Staton) | Unforced Rhythms of Grace E3

    Scripture (ft. Tim Mackie and Tyler Staton) | Unforced Rhythms of Grace E3

    Why are the Scriptures so confusing? Tim Mackie and Tyler Staton discuss how our intuition about what the Bible should do - that it's supposed to tell us about what's true, good, and God's voice - are correct. But these intuitions without the right tools to read can destruct our faith more than they construct it. Together, Tyler and Tim show us how to approach the Scriptures with the right tools, and read it like a story: one that leads us to Jesus.

Incredible!

So refreshing and different than other preaching and teaching. I love his mellowness yet passionate approach to teaching the Word! I am a follower of Christ, and attend church regularly but I am hooked on John Marks teachings to supplement as I run, workout, cook, or drive to work. Thank you for sharing your incredible gift with us!
