What is it that drives you? How do you get direction? And where do you find the energy to keep going when the trip takes an unexpected turn? This summer we're taking a look at how key Bible passages have fueled real people's journeys.

Your home is bigger than you'd think. It's the roof over your head, the family that surrounds you, the city in which you live and the planet we all share. God has given us these communities and charged us with caring for and growing them. And it all starts very locally. The world will be changed when individual relationships, families and tight-knit communities are changed. So you want to change the world? GO HOME.
Powerful and unpredictable, mysterious and tangible, invisible and real. Defying easy description, the Holy Spirit is no vague and impersonal force. This promised Counselor and Teacher has been sent to equip us, comfort us and fill us personally with the very spirit, wisdom and power of God.
Jesus didn't come to bring a new religion. He came to start a revolution. He called it the ''Kingdom of God,'' and he said that it operates in a totally different way than the world we see around us. It's radical. It's counterintuitive. It's an alternative way of doing life based on receiving love from God and living out of sacrificial love for others. This revolution is advancing and unstoppable, and you are invited to play a significant role in it.
Change is frequently uncomfortable, often awkward and ultimately inevitable. Whether you desire change or not, it's a constant in your world, so you might as well embrace it. Welcome it, even, because change can be a very good thing. Join us in January and February as we explore the art of morphing.

Ready or not, here it comes: holiday time with the family. You could just knock the mothballs out of the holiday sweaters, grit your teeth and hope for the best this year, or you could get proactive about improving family patterns so you're not doomed to repeat them. Join us in December as we explore ways to grow relationships with our spouses, parents and kids during the holidays and beyond.
Do you know the Joneses? They live in bigger houses, drive nicer cars and wear more stylish clothes than you do. Try as you might to keep up, they always seem to be a few steps ahead. Might sound familiar, but the reality is that 'the Joneses' are a lie - they're just an invisible standard propped up by a consumer culture that profits from telling us what and how much we 'should' have. And pursuing this standard only leads to personal, financial and spiritual wreckage. Join us in November as we expose the façade of 'the Joneses' and kick 'em to the curb.
Do you ever feel like there are limits on your life? Like you're getting by, but that it still feels like something’s holding you back? You’re not alone. That feeling is real, and it’s right. You’re craving what you’re supposed to crave: Freedom. And it’s completely possible. Join us as we listen for the missing message of freedom in our world.
What’s one thing that many seek but few apply? Wisdom. It isn’t knowledge. It isn’t about accumulating profound insights. It’s much more than ‘common sense.’ Real wisdom is revealed in action—what we do and how, when and with whom we engage in the process.
Life would be much more convenient if we could compartmentalize it into distinct and separate pieces: home and work, play and personal, spiritual and non-spiritual. But reality is that separation is impossible. Everything is connected. If even one thing is spiritual, then everything is spiritual.
