[display_podcast] From Pastor Matt Tague, author of Read the Word: The Bible was written for you: We’ve already discussed the four New Testament Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as well as the Book of Acts, which tells about how the Christian Church began. But, before we leave the historical books of the New Testament and their effects on our lives, I want to talk about one type of literature found right in the middle of and interspersed throughout the Gospels known as Jesus’ parab … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 84: Improv Class, Bone Hampton & Tom Isbell


[display_podcast] Several years ago, I attended Tom Isbell’s Improv Class, and it was weird. Most people who attend improv classes are actors; and actors are not like comedians. They’re happy people. I would walk in and they would be all socializing and happily talking to one another. I would just stand in the corner, cross my arms, and stare. Yet, I learned so much in that semester.

But you also have your own flesh – the reality of your sinful nature – still in you battling with the Holy Spirit over your will. In Ephesians 5, we learn about what it’s like to turn away from ungodly things, and t … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD Thumbnail

 [display_podcast] From Dewey Bertolini, Pastor of The Safe Haven in McMinnville, OR: We have come in this PODCAST to a monumentally significant section of Scripture. And yet ironically one of the most ignored. As we will learn over the next several weeks, here in Mark 6, and its much more complete parallel passage in Matthew 10, we read of something that was for Jesus enormously emotional, and for us incredibly instructional. Emotional because of its context (Jesus’ compassion for people wi … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] From Certified Life Coach Dixie Diamanti, Author of Climbing Out of the Box and Fifty Ways to Meet Your Lover: My legs were screaming for relief from the steady climb up the mountain.  I was enjoying the hike so much and it was so beautiful and green as we trudged upward.  Our goal was to reach the top that overlooked the whole valley below, a five-mile trek all together.  At first the walk seemed easy.  But as we slowly climbed the hill I noticed it was hard to talk without s … [Read more...]
