WWUTT: Don’t Go to Church, Be the Church?

It’s kinda funny – the amount of churches saying, “Don’t GO to church BE the Church!”As witty as they think that is, they are inadvertently telling people not to go to church. Really, guys? Don’t go to church? Nevertheless, they throw this message on signs, bumper stickers and other graphics… they even make it a slogan for their congregation or sermon series. Hey everybody, don’t go to our church! A few have altered it a little by adding the word “just”, as in “Don’t JUST go to church; be … [Read more...]

My Armor 30: How 2 Pray

[display_podcast] So, I run the heater during the day and my air conditioner at night.  I think I sleep better when I’m in a cryogenic state.  What this turns into is a great night’s sleep for me, but I wake up in an icebox, so I have to run the heater full-tilt when I wake up.  I don’t know why I sleep so much better when it’s cold.  Maybe that’s why people enjoy camping so much.

Church for Men 22: Why Churches Are Stage-Driven

[display_podcast] When Christians gather, they spend the bulk of their time watching stage presentations. Worship services. Seminars. Classes. Conferences. Workshops. All the while, they interact with someone standing in front of them – either speaking or leading them in song. The early Christians did meet to hear sermons and teaching. But their focus seemed to be outside the walls of the church — serving God adventurously, working in small teams. I can’t imagine they spent more than 80% of the … [Read more...]

Ouxano 94: Prayer Is All About You (submitting to God)!

[display_podcast] In this week’s podcast, we take a look at the importance of prayer when we read the Bible as part of our personal daily devotional time.  If reading the Bible is part of a growing Christian walk with God, then talking, communicating, having honest and open conversations must be part of your Spiritual growth as well.
