Reflections on Spiritual Formation: Life-Long Learners Who Read Broadly
It's easy to fall into ruts. We get comfortable. It's so easy to slip into patterns of life where we unintentionally stop stretching, exercising, reading, and learning. In today's midweek teaching we talk about the importance of being a life-long learner who reads broadly. What we read (and the media we consume in general) will shape and form us. So, receive this invitation to read adventurously and broadly as you seek to learn and love God with all your mind.
Reflections on Spiritual Formation: The War Inside Spills Out
Have you ever experienced someone lashing out at you in a hurtful way? Chances are that person had some unresolved pain or anger going on within their own heart that unfortunately was misdirected at you. We've all been on the receiving end of irrational anger, and, we've also all been on the giving end too. In today's teaching we explore the symbiotic relationship between love of God, love of neighbor, and love of self. These three loves are meant to work together, and, when they do, there's usually a lot less internal pain that spills out on those around us.
Reflections on Spiritual Formation: “Simultaneity”
In today's teaching we discuss the importance of learning how to do two things at a time. We need to be where we are, present to the people and the tasks in front of us. And, as followers of Christ, we also need to commune with Him throughout our day. Each day is an invitation to simultaneously live our lives while living life with Jesus .
Reflections on Spiritual Formation: When Our Leaders Fail Us
Last week we talked about the inevitable reality of personal failure in our spiritual formation journeys. In this week's teaching we're talking about the reality of our leaders failing us. What happens to our faith when a trusted authority is found to be abusive or dishonest? Join us as we look at Ezekiel 34 and John 10 in today's midweek teaching.
Reflections on Spiritual Formation: Take 2 (or 3...or 4)
In this week's midweek teaching we talk about the reality of failure in our spiritual journeys. What do we do when we fall flat on our faces? Join us as we look at the betrayals and failings of Peter and Judas and examine Jesus' restoration of Peter.
Reflections on Spiritual Formation: Say "No" to Say "Yes"
Do you sometimes struggle with saying "no"? Maybe you have a hard time saying no to that extra helping of ice cream? Or, maybe you have a hard time saying no to requests from people in your life and find yourself persistently overcommitted. In today's teaching we look at Jesus' example of saying "no" so that He could say "yes" to the right things.
If you want to see Gods work first hand, listen to these out of the box messages. Tim and Josh par up to make a team that only God could have created. Listen, enjoy and be truly set free.
Pastors Tim and Josh are always on point and in step with Gods word.
