  • 21 May 2017: Pack Your Bags: Yesterday's Investments - Half of college students who grew up in church drift away while away at school. But we don’t have to accept the status quo. So, how can yesterday’s investments continue to pay off tomorrow?
  • 14 May 2017: Pack Your Bags: Praying Ahead - Sometimes you know what’s coming next—graduation, wedding, new baby, new job, retirement. But there’s no correlation between knowing what’s next and being prepared for what’s next. So, how do you prepare for the next season when you can't see what’s coming?
  • 7 May 2017: Pack Your Bags: Know What You Don't Know - We’re all headed somewhere. We’re all moving toward a new season. And none of us has been where we’re going. Yet it’s up to us to figure out what we need to pack in our bags so that we’re prepared for that coming season. But how can you know what you’ll need when the coming season is a mystery? How can you know what you don’t know?
  • 30 April 2017: Pack Your Bags: Motion Sickness - We’re all headed somewhere. Arriving at our new destinations requires change. For most of us, change creates stress. Just like when we travel on a boat, plane, or in a car, traveling through life can give us motion sickness. We’re knocked off balance. The ground beneath our feet doesn’t feel solid. So how do you prepare for what’s next when the anxiety of transition has you fighting motion sickness?
  • 23 April 2017: Pack Your Bags: Now And Then - Life is full of change. Transitions can be both exciting and stressful. That’s because we can’t see into the future. We can’t tell what comes next. But what if there was a way to prepare for the next season? What if you could do something now to influence where you end up then?
  • 16 April 2017: Believe Again - Do you sometimes wonder how anyone could believe Christ died for our sins, was buried, rose from the dead, and was seen? It was enough then. Maybe it’s still enough today. 
  • 9 April 2017: David: When Dreams Can't Come True - Plans are great. Reality is greater. Reality wins. Things don’t always go as planned. Some dreams don’t come true. So what do you do when you discover your dream can’t come true?
  • 2 April 2017: David: The Great King - Few things are as repulsive as a leader, parent, boss, or politician who leverages infuence for his or her benefit to the neglect of those he or she is responsible for. Few things are as inspiring as a leader who says no to himself or herself in order to say yes to those for whom he or she is responsible. So how can we lead well when authority is placed in our hands?
  • 26 March 2017: David: The Abigail Way - The way of God isn't appealing when we have been wronged by someone else. Our natural urge is to try to get even. We want to wrong the people who wrong us as a way of getting payback. That seems just. It seems fair. But does it solve anything? Maybe there’s a better way.
  • 19 March 2017: David: Killer Giants - The way of God is most unappealing when we are angry, isolated, or afraid. That’s when we consider things we would never otherwise consider. It's when we feel compelled to do something . . . anything. But maybe there's a better way.
  • 12 March 2017: David: The Reluctant Hero - David went from humble shepherd to national hero to great king. But he wasn't great because of his reputation or military prowess. He was great because of where he'd learned to place his hope.
  • 5 March 2017: Your Church - For 21 years, we’ve put a lot of effort into creating churches unchurched people love to attend. It’s worked because so many people have made it work. It’s worked because we broke every church tradition we knew to embrace the mission of the church: to draw people to Jesus.
  • 26 February 2017: The (Not So) United States of America - Can the church bridge the divide when compassion and national security collide? We say yes.
  • 19 February 2017: White Noise: The Stamp Of Approval - Inadequacy whispers into every quiet moment of the soul. We think, "I don't have what it takes." For so many, inadequacy drives the pursuit of power, prestige, and possessions. If we never deal directly with our inadequacy, the white noise will keep us dissatisfied.
  • 12 February 2017: White Noise: Lonely But Not Alone - Loneliness is one of the most common ailments of the modern age.? Because of the stigma attached with it, most people never deal with it. Instead of resorting to the white noise we use to mask loneliness, what if we dealt with it directly?
  • 5 February 2017: White Noise: Sound Masking - Life is full of noise. It’s everywhere, all the time. Sometimes we just want to escape, to control the noise by drowning it out with other distractions. But too often, the noise you control is masking the noise that is controlling you. If you’re willing to turn down the white noise, you might be surprised what you’ll hear.
  • 29 January 2017: How To Get What You Really Want: Thinkin' It Through - What you naturally want is often in conflict with what you ultimately value. But your heavenly Father knows what you need. He wants for you what you really want. So, how do you put aside those natural wants and pursue what you ultimately value?
  • 22 January 2017: How To Get What You Really Want: Last Things First - What do you want? What do you really want? We’ll never get what we really want until we discover what is most valuable. And what we naturally want is often in conflict with what we ultimately value. So, in order to figure out what you really want, you have to figure out what you value.
  • 15 January 2017: How To Get What You Really Want: Don't Be Deceived - We’ll never get what we really want until we discover what is most valuable. But choosing what’s valuable isn’t natural. We’ve all had the experience of getting what we naturally want, only to discover it's not what is most valuable—it’s not what we ultimately want. But how do we avoid being deceived by our short-term desires?
  • 8 January 2017: How To Get What You Really Want: Careful What You Want For - We all have wants. But actually getting what we want can be tricky . . . and even dangerous. It usually leaves us wanting more. If what we want leads to a cycle of wanting more and more, maybe we want the wrong things. So, what do you want?
  • 1 January 2017: Eyes On The Road - People who were not like Jesus liked Jesus, and he liked them back. Since the church is the body of Christ, people should be drawn to Jesus followers. Even if they don’t agree with the message of the church, they should like the church. So, why isn’t that true?
  • 24 December 2016: The Perfect Christmas - We all have a picture in our mind of what the perfect Christmas should look like. So, what do we do when the circumstances of Christmas don’t line up with our picture of Christmas? 
  • 18 December 2016: Who Needs Christmas: We Do - Who needs Christmas? Well, as it turns out, we all do. But it might not be for the reasons you think.
  • 11 December 2016: Who Needs Christmas: God Did - As you know, love must be shown to be known. Right? If you don't show it, nobody knows it. And that is the message of Christmas.
  • 4 December 2016: Who Needs Christmas: The World Did - You may find the events surrounding the birth of Jesus a bit unbelievable. If so, you're not alone. But when you hear the entire story ­– the backstory – well . . . the whole thing is really quite remarkable.
  • 27 November 2016: Eyes On The Road - People who were not like Jesus liked Jesus, and he liked them back. Since the church is the body of Christ, people should be drawn to Jesus followers. Even if they don’t agree with the message of the church, they should like the church. So, why isn’t that true?
