Pastor David's Podcast featuring speaker David M Wettrich
Being A Joyful Giver
Jesus talked about the subject of money, how we think about it, feel about it, use it more than any other subject including love and forgiveness. And it’s not because it’s more important to Jesus, it’s because He knows that it is the chief competition for our affections and our hearts.
Creating A Healthy Culture
To have a healthy culture, we each need to take individual ownership of how we serve guests and make sure we have a good reputation in our community. Pastor David challenged us with some questions to do just that.
Culture: the beliefs, behaviors, and customs that a group of people accept, generally without thinking about them; that shapes who we are and how we will interact.
Creating A Healthy Environment
We want to develop and guard the kind of warm, welcoming environment at Creative Church that will magnify the message of God’s incredible grace that none of us deserve.
Why did God choose Saul? Why three days of darkness and silence? Why send Ananias to say something that God easily could have said to him? And what did Ananias even really do that was all that significant anyway? Just listen to this story. Read Acts chapter 9 verses 1-19. All Ananias did was he walked in and said: Brother Saul, God has sent me to you. And bam! He received his sight back.
Just like our base camp series that we are in, we stop at base camp to learn from one another. To help each other on our way to the summit. To learn something new along the way.
Even when I’m studying and preparing a lesson, God is speaking to me and teaching me new things along the way.
Have you ever read something, and you know you read it before, but this time your like, wow, I never thought of it that way before?
Base Camp is where you repack your gear, to make sure that you’re fully rested, that you’ve got nutrition and to build relationships with the people who you are going to be depending on to get to the summit.
Base Camp is necessary if you’re going to reach the summit. The summit that we’re referring to in this series is personal transformation.
