“Do you feel like our world is heading in the right direction?
This is not merely a political question. It’s much bigger. In today’s podcast and post, I will continue in our series of Psalms Greatest Hits with a look at the 127th Psalm. All of human history has ideas about how our cities and countries should be governed.
Join me now as we compare the trajectory of this simple Psalm to the trajectory of the modern world and test if there is any part of us which is able to see beyond everything.
“Are you or someone you know in the midst of raising a teenager? As a parent, are the teen years right around the corner for you?
In today’s podcast and post, we begin a series that many of you have asked me to do, as we look at the wisdom required to raise teenagers. My first series on the Power of Parenting looked at the counter-intuitive philosophies of biblical parenting, and remains the most forwarded series to date.
Join me now as I introduce this series and invite you and your family into a transformative, sacrificial path along a loving, respectful, transition from childhood to adulthood.
“Does spiritual awareness really make a difference in our lives?”
Today we return to our ongoing series of Psalms Greatest Hits with a look at the Twenty Seventh Psalm. In our hurried lives of distraction, it’s common for modern people to ignore, dismiss, or avoid stillness and reflection upon our spiritual condition. This enlarges the amount of emotional pain that we must suppress leaving many of us with a sense of anger or despair just below the surface of our lives.
Join me now as we see beyond everything and follow David’s pointing finger toward the unseen world. We will take a few tips from David and perhaps we can become honest like him and allow all the subterranean reality to bubble to the surface, where we can give it the attention it requires.
Many of us have heard Jesus’ promise that we would do greater works than he did, or that he would give us anything if we asked for it in his name. The question for us today is: Why do so few of us believe it?
In today’s podcast and post we continue our series examining Jesus’ Famous Last Words and his promise that “You shall do greater works than these…” You’ll learn the four most common ways people interpret this promise.
Join me now as we discover why all of us approach this promise like his disciples did… in uncertainty, confusion, and unbelief.
“How involved should a parent be in directing a child’s purpose?
In today’s podcast and post we continue in our series, The Power of Parenting, with our fifth installment where we explore a common Proverb and learn the difference between a child’s pattern and their purpose.
Join me now as we learn to see beyond merely entertaining our kids and discover why so many people grow up without a sense of purpose.
“If religion and politics have not been able to end human suffering, why do we continue to place our trust in them?”
We all know personal change is hard. We have endless blind spots and malware scripts which plague our lives, harm our relationships, and destroy our world. In today’s post and podcast, I will reverse engineer every problem in the world to it’s “Big Bang” moment found within each of us.
Join me now as we deconstruct the architecture of our oblivious life of falsehood where we will see the beauty of the design and the path which can restore the entire cosmos.
If you think we are watching our communities react to the pain of social injustice, look closer. Both sides are being played like a well-tuned instrument. The pressure to pit us against one another has never been stronger, but if you think the reason is political, your still not seeing it.
In today’s podcast and post I will unveil the pernicious assault on the human soul and the only way to stop it. Join me now for a podcast that none of us will like as we see beyond our pain and anger into the power behind the whole mess.
“Do you really want things to go back to how they were? I don’t.”
I told you last week, we’d be in this for a while and now the novelty is wearing off. So many memes and GIF’s circulating about how we are getting on each other’s nerves. While good for a laugh, the underlying truth must be exposed. In today’s podcast and post I will prove that the lockdown is not creating relationship problems, it is exposing them.
Join me now as we take a sobering look beyond the issues at home and into our communities of faith. This Palm Sunday, let’s hope the real Easter emerges from the inside out. If it does, the world won’t have to go back to how it was.
