    Know Your Stop (The Part Each of Us Needs to Play) - Week 4 - CARPOOL: The Life We Were Meant to Live

    Know Your Stop (The Part Each of Us Needs to Play) - Week 4 - CARPOOL: The Life We Were Meant to Live

    You are God’s Plan A to reach the world, and there is no Plan B. This may feel overwhelming at first, it’s important to note that His strategy doesn’t require you to change careers, memorize every scripture, or become a missionary on the other side of the world. In fact, for most of us it means staying exactly where we are. So what part do you have to play, and what is God inviting you to do?

    Curated Playlists (The Crucial Role of Collective Worship) - Week 3 - CARPOOL: The Life We Were Meant to Live

    Curated Playlists (The Crucial Role of Collective Worship) - Week 3 - CARPOOL: The Life We Were Meant to Live

    Everybody knows that just like a road trip isn’t complete without music, a church service isn’t complete without worship. We may not know how we know, or why it’s true, we just know it is. Obviously, there’s something powerful about music, but why do we need to sing (what amounts to) love songs to someone we can’t see, hear, or touch? Especially with other people. It’s kind of weird. Why has worship been essential to religious gatherings since humans started having them? Is it something God requires? Are we obligated to do it? Is it how we prove our worth and earn His blessing? Or is it about something else altogether? How might knowing what God intends worship to be change how we approach it and how fulfilling we find it?

    Fast Food & Table Settings (The Difficult Work of Communion) - Week 2 - CARPOOL: The Life We Were Meant to Live

    Fast Food & Table Settings (The Difficult Work of Communion) - Week 2 - CARPOOL: The Life We Were Meant to Live

    Life is busy, and it shows no signs of slowing
    down. For many of us, that means we do our best to maximize our time and minimize distractions. That isn’t always a bad thing, but it certainly can be a bad thing. Some parts of life aren’t meant to be rushed, skipped, or sped through. It might be convenient to drive-thru a favorite fast-food spot, or even Door Dash your meal, but it’s just not the same as sitting down at a table with others. Jesus sat at a few different tables and seemed to think sharing a meal with others was worth it. Why is that, and what can Jesus’ meals then teach us about our meals today?

    Enough Seats for Everyone (The Importance of Gathering) - Week 1 - CARPOOL: The Life We Were Meant to Live

    Enough Seats for Everyone (The Importance of Gathering) - Week 1 - CARPOOL: The Life We Were Meant to Live

    Making room for and compromising with other people can be uncomfortable and annoying. Which is why a lot of us would rather go it alone. We drive alone, eat alone, and binge our shows alone. The catch is: doing so much alone is…lonely. We all want to find people we just click with—people who share our interests, opinions, and preferences. In other words, people just like us. Is that so bad? Doesn’t God want us to have meaningful relationships? If so, how come so many of us feel unwanted and disconnected? What if we’re missing the kind of connections we long for because they’re inconvenient and too much work? What if the relationships we need come from building community with those who are nothing like us as opposed to magically finding those who are? If that were true, what would we do about it?

    "How we’re unintentionally reinforcing materialism in ourselves (and our kids) and how to stop." - Week 3 - THE OPPOSITE OF SPOILED: Practical Money Conversations Everyone Needs to Have

    "How we’re unintentionally reinforcing materialism in ourselves (and our kids) and how to stop." - Week 3 - THE OPPOSITE OF SPOILED: Practical Money Conversations Everyone Needs to Have

    So much of what we think we need is dictated by what those around us have. We feel the pressure to keep up with and occasionally one-up our neighbors. But social media has expanded our community of comparison to everyone in existence. Which is a little overwhelming. Why is so much of our self-worth tied to what we have, and why do even those who have a lot often feel worthless? How do we break our addiction to more? And how do we teach our kids there’s more to life than having the best stuff?
