The Super Bowl of Preaching | 2020

Join us for an unconventional, schticky, preaching competition that turns a church service into a spectator sport.

1
00:00:13.440 --> 00:00:17.430
- Welcome, Crossroads to the 18th annual Super Bowl of Preaching.

2
00:00:17.550 --> 00:00:20.910
First off, yes, you are about to experience church.

3
00:00:20.970 --> 00:00:24.120
And if it's your first time, this is an extra special weekend

4
00:00:24.390 --> 00:00:26.850
unlike anything else we do all year.

5
00:00:27.000 --> 00:00:27.990
- That's right. Ladies and gentlemen.

6
00:00:27.990 --> 00:00:29.210
My name is Neville Paco Pancham.

7
00:00:29.370 --> 00:00:32.640
I'm standing alongside Lena Schuler.

8
00:00:32.970 --> 00:00:37.140
And we think church can actually be fun and meaningful at the same time.

9
00:00:37.170 --> 00:00:37.500
- That's right.

10
00:00:37.560 --> 00:00:39.110
- That's why we do this whole thing.

11
00:00:39.120 --> 00:00:40.640
It's football. It's church.

12
00:00:40.830 --> 00:00:43.110
They crashed together for an awesome weekend.

13
00:00:43.110 --> 00:00:46.050
You might be asking what in the world did I get myself into?

14
00:00:46.410 --> 00:00:47.400
Well, I've got good news for you.

15
00:00:47.640 --> 00:00:49.140
Here's a sneak peek of what to expect.

16
00:01:49.930 --> 00:01:51.910
- Today, you're gonna have more fun at church

17
00:01:51.970 --> 00:01:53.710
than you thought was possible.

18
00:01:53.920 --> 00:01:55.480
There will be a preaching competition.

19
00:01:55.510 --> 00:01:57.100
There will be a halftime show.

20
00:01:57.340 --> 00:01:59.170
There will be epic commercials.

21
00:01:59.200 --> 00:01:59.890
It's going to be great.

22
00:02:00.010 --> 00:02:01.240
- You're telling the truth, Lena.

23
00:02:01.240 --> 00:02:03.580
My hips don't lie, and neither do you.

24
00:02:03.610 --> 00:02:03.820
- Shakira, Shakira.

25
00:02:05.310 --> 00:02:06.970
- That's right. Now, check this out.

26
00:02:06.980 --> 00:02:08.950
We've been doing this thing for 18 years.

27
00:02:08.950 --> 00:02:12.700
The Super Bowl of Preaching has been happening for 18 years now.

28
00:02:12.860 --> 00:02:15.340
And we do that because historically across the country,

29
00:02:15.730 --> 00:02:16.750
Super Bowl weekend

30
00:02:16.750 --> 00:02:19.270
has been the least attended church weekend nationwide.

31
00:02:19.590 --> 00:02:20.790
And we decided to change all that.

32
00:02:21.070 --> 00:02:23.470
- Yep, as Jenny from the Block once said,

33
00:02:23.470 --> 00:02:25.420
"We used to have a little, now we have a lot."

34
00:02:25.450 --> 00:02:27.040
That's right, we're the Ja Rule right there.

35
00:02:28.180 --> 00:02:31.540
- All right. So, by the way, we are legally obligated

36
00:02:31.540 --> 00:02:34.750
to state that this is not the actual Super Bowl.

37
00:02:34.990 --> 00:02:39.520
And we are in no way, shape, or form saying that it is or isn't

38
00:02:39.790 --> 00:02:44.620
or is connected to the NFL or any of its sponsors in any way.

39
00:02:45.070 --> 00:02:45.790
- No.

40
00:02:46.120 --> 00:02:49.360
- No. OK. So with that out of the way, let's get started.

41
00:02:49.450 --> 00:02:54.220
The teams today are Team Tome and Team Mingo.

42
00:02:54.310 --> 00:02:57.040
- That's correct. Two iconic teams going head to head

43
00:02:57.040 --> 00:02:59.760
for the championship of the Super Bowl of Preaching.

44
00:02:59.800 --> 00:03:01.300
If you're watching for the first time,

45
00:03:01.500 --> 00:03:02.820
there is a lot happening right now.

46
00:03:02.830 --> 00:03:03.430
We get that.

47
00:03:03.460 --> 00:03:05.470
But stay tuned because in just a second

48
00:03:05.470 --> 00:03:07.030
we're going to go over the rules of the game.

49
00:03:07.270 --> 00:03:10.470
Yes, there are actually rules to this thing.

50
00:03:10.630 --> 00:03:11.930
- But before we get to that.

51
00:03:11.950 --> 00:03:13.180
Turn up your volume.

52
00:03:13.240 --> 00:03:14.380
Go full screen.

53
00:03:14.590 --> 00:03:16.280
Put some pizza rolls in the microwave,

54
00:03:16.280 --> 00:03:18.580
i f you're feeling fancy, the oven,

55
00:03:18.580 --> 00:03:20.530
because this train's about to leave the station.

56
00:03:20.560 --> 00:03:22.660
- That's right. Let's head now to our game analysts,

57
00:03:22.690 --> 00:03:24.670
Solomon Walcott's and Anthony Munoz,

58
00:03:24.850 --> 00:03:26.860
who sat down with today's teams

59
00:03:27.040 --> 00:03:29.010
to get their insights on today's big game.

60
00:03:31.020 --> 00:03:32.850
- Thanks, guys. Today we find ourselves

61
00:03:32.850 --> 00:03:35.910
at the 18th edition of the Super Bowl of Preaching.

62
00:03:36.120 --> 00:03:38.460
And if previous years tells us anything,

63
00:03:38.670 --> 00:03:41.850
it's that we're about to experience a whirlwind of emotions.

64
00:03:42.120 --> 00:03:44.220
I'm here with Cincinnati Bengals legend

65
00:03:44.220 --> 00:03:46.440
and NFL Hall of Famer, Anthony Munoz.

66
00:03:46.490 --> 00:03:47.280
- Thanks, Solomon..

67
00:03:47.520 --> 00:03:49.920
Last year's matchup was one for the history books.

68
00:03:49.920 --> 00:03:52.380
And I'm sure this year will be even better.

69
00:03:52.560 --> 00:03:53.130
- That's right.

70
00:03:53.160 --> 00:03:56.910
Now, Anthony being an actual two time Super Bowl veteran yourself,

71
00:03:56.910 --> 00:04:00.750
can you give us some insight as to what a game like this entails?

72
00:04:01.050 --> 00:04:03.630
- Well, Solomon, as you know, being an actual athlete

73
00:04:03.840 --> 00:04:06.090
is much different than what we're seeing here today.

74
00:04:06.930 --> 00:04:07.800
Much, much different.

75
00:04:07.830 --> 00:04:09.990
- Yeah, just a little bit. I would say, that's right.

76
00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:11.460
And I couldn't agree more.

77
00:04:11.490 --> 00:04:15.390
But let's play along and pretend that today's game

78
00:04:15.540 --> 00:04:18.570
is an actual championship game of sorts.

79
00:04:19.090 --> 00:04:19.430
- Right.

80
00:04:20.980 --> 00:04:23.550
Solomon, these fierce competitors have worked tirelessly

81
00:04:23.550 --> 00:04:26.070
and trained vigorously to determine today's winners.

82
00:04:26.490 --> 00:04:28.170
There's simply no bigger stage

83
00:04:28.170 --> 00:04:30.330
and you must come ready to play.

84
00:04:30.350 --> 00:04:31.560
- That's right, well put.

85
00:04:31.590 --> 00:04:33.720
That means you have to actually bring it.

86
00:04:33.750 --> 00:04:37.080
Now just outside of their skill set on the field,

87
00:04:37.080 --> 00:04:40.230
these personalities are incredibly intriguing.

88
00:04:40.440 --> 00:04:44.070
I got a chance to sit down with both Team Tome and Team Mingo

89
00:04:44.190 --> 00:04:46.380
to see what makes these players tick.

90
00:04:48.420 --> 00:04:52.800
- Brian Tome, senior pastor; Kyle Ranson, teaching pastor,

91
00:04:52.800 --> 00:04:54.010
Super Bowl 18.

92
00:04:54.480 --> 00:04:56.520
So what got you guys together here today?

93
00:04:56.800 --> 00:04:58.460
- You go first? - You go first.

94
00:04:58.460 --> 00:05:01.180
(simultaneously) Well, I can't believe --

95
00:05:01.680 --> 00:05:03.530
- I've got this one.

96
00:05:03.530 --> 00:05:05.900
Winning, that's what got us here.

97
00:05:05.900 --> 00:05:07.890
We're two people who just win.

98
00:05:08.220 --> 00:05:11.070
Every day we get up and do the right thing

99
00:05:11.070 --> 00:05:14.730
and get the right consequences, which is winning

100
00:05:14.910 --> 00:05:16.530
and feeling good about ourselves

101
00:05:16.530 --> 00:05:18.810
and making other people feel bad about themselves.

102
00:05:18.960 --> 00:05:22.680
And I am confident we're going to feel that same exuberance

103
00:05:22.920 --> 00:05:27.090
and fantastic elevation the top of the mountain as we win today.

104
00:05:27.090 --> 00:05:30.330
I'm as sure of it that a Mountie has maple syrup

105
00:05:30.450 --> 00:05:33.420
all over his handkerchief that he just wiped his mouth with

106
00:05:33.420 --> 00:05:34.440
after he had his flapjacks.

107
00:05:34.650 --> 00:05:38.580
I'm sure of it as I am that teenagers have crusty socks in their bathroom.

108
00:05:38.850 --> 00:05:42.000
I'm sure of it as I can be as sure of anything.

109
00:05:42.000 --> 00:05:45.050
It is for real a nd winning is going to happen

110
00:05:45.050 --> 00:05:47.220
with right here: Team Tome and Ranson.

111
00:05:47.220 --> 00:05:50.250
- Kyle, I've got to ask you, year number two for you.

112
00:05:50.550 --> 00:05:52.280
How do you prepare in your second year

113
00:05:52.290 --> 00:05:54.540
different maybe than what you did last year?

114
00:05:54.720 --> 00:05:56.910
- Well, listen, everybody's looking for an edge, right?

115
00:05:56.940 --> 00:05:58.510
Every competition, every sport,

116
00:05:58.510 --> 00:06:00.180
you're looking for that performance enhancer.

117
00:06:00.360 --> 00:06:03.300
And for me, I'm going with the killer bee diet,

118
00:06:03.300 --> 00:06:04.140
straight out of the Bible.

119
00:06:04.140 --> 00:06:06.090
Man doesn't live on bread alone.

120
00:06:06.120 --> 00:06:08.520
My preferred form of bread is liquid bread.

121
00:06:08.640 --> 00:06:10.200
I'm going beer. I'm going bourbon.

122
00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:11.120
Lots, a lot of grain.

123
00:06:11.130 --> 00:06:12.330
Lot of hops in there.

124
00:06:12.660 --> 00:06:15.240
And in the Bible every single day mixing in that back and forth.

125
00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:18.060
I feel like that's going to give me a real edge in the competition today.

126
00:06:18.150 --> 00:06:19.680
- Now, Brian, I've got to tell you, though,

127
00:06:19.740 --> 00:06:21.060
you've been on top of your game.

128
00:06:21.090 --> 00:06:22.950
Great year of preaching, by the way.

129
00:06:23.310 --> 00:06:25.590
And you've even been on top of your game

130
00:06:25.590 --> 00:06:27.960
when it comes to off the field endeavors.

131
00:06:28.290 --> 00:06:31.350
You've just completed this wonderful podcast series,

132
00:06:31.680 --> 00:06:32.940
The Aggressive Life.

133
00:06:33.000 --> 00:06:35.160
You also had a recent book published,

134
00:06:35.360 --> 00:06:37.830
a men's devotional called Move.

135
00:06:38.040 --> 00:06:39.870
How do you find the time for it all,

136
00:06:39.990 --> 00:06:41.400
including preparing for the big game?

137
00:06:41.670 --> 00:06:43.290
- It's been a fun year, in all seriousness, it has.

138
00:06:43.520 --> 00:06:45.100
And thank you very much for being on the podcast.

139
00:06:45.100 --> 00:06:46.470
That was one of my favorite episodes.

140
00:06:46.680 --> 00:06:49.740
I think it's just a lot of accumulation over doing

141
00:06:49.740 --> 00:06:52.290
a lot of the small things right over 20 some years.

142
00:06:52.290 --> 00:06:54.060
I've now been able to do some other things

143
00:06:54.060 --> 00:06:56.400
that are sort of outside of the normal day to day

144
00:06:56.400 --> 00:06:58.290
responsibilities I've had for twenty three years.

145
00:06:58.320 --> 00:06:59.820
That's a piece of how I've done it all.

146
00:06:59.910 --> 00:07:02.370
And to be clear, there's just some great people

147
00:07:02.430 --> 00:07:04.300
around here that are doing a lot of great things.

148
00:07:04.310 --> 00:07:05.670
It's freed me up to try some other thing.

149
00:07:05.800 --> 00:07:08.250
- Now, if you had one final thing that you could say

150
00:07:08.250 --> 00:07:09.810
to your opponents, what would it be?

151
00:07:11.360 --> 00:07:12.410
- Give up? I don't know.

152
00:07:12.880 --> 00:07:14.840
That's the best advice I can come up with really.

153
00:07:15.190 --> 00:07:18.290
- Another one is, "Hey, man, we're we're gonna need you

154
00:07:18.290 --> 00:07:21.050
because we just got done with a really good series on winning.

155
00:07:21.050 --> 00:07:23.780
And I think we'll do a series on losing in the future.

156
00:07:24.110 --> 00:07:26.630
And they're going to be uniquely qualified for that.

157
00:07:26.860 --> 00:07:30.440
So however you feel at the end this weekend,

158
00:07:30.620 --> 00:07:33.530
just take notes on how you feel as a loser,

159
00:07:33.560 --> 00:07:35.480
because that's going to be some core curriculum

160
00:07:35.480 --> 00:07:36.990
we're gonna try to work in the future series.

161
00:07:37.310 --> 00:07:38.450
- He needs lots of tips on losing.

162
00:07:38.480 --> 00:07:40.520
It's gonna be great, bless a lot of people.

163
00:07:42.510 --> 00:07:45.240
- Chuck Mingo, Oakley Community Pastor;

164
00:07:45.420 --> 00:07:47.670
Alli Patterson, teaching pastor.

165
00:07:47.790 --> 00:07:50.460
Tell me how are you feeling about today's big game?

166
00:07:50.640 --> 00:07:51.180
- Yeah, I've got this.

167
00:07:51.310 --> 00:07:52.800
I'm pumped! I'm pumped!

168
00:07:53.040 --> 00:07:53.790
That's what I'll tell you.

169
00:07:53.820 --> 00:07:55.470
I am ready. I've been training.

170
00:07:55.500 --> 00:07:56.340
I feel great.

171
00:07:56.610 --> 00:08:00.180
Just this morning, doing some shots of green tea, watching Marie Kondo.

172
00:08:00.420 --> 00:08:03.420
I mean, I've been reciting the Book of Habakkuk forward and backward.

173
00:08:03.450 --> 00:08:04.670
I am ready.

174
00:08:05.320 --> 00:08:06.480
- OK. She's ready.

175
00:08:06.510 --> 00:08:08.480
- She is ready. She is ready.

176
00:08:08.480 --> 00:08:11.220
Man, I don't know if I'm as fired up as Alli at this moment,

177
00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:13.800
but man, I tell you what, this is the game you play for all year.

178
00:08:13.830 --> 00:08:15.180
So, yeah, we're ready to go.

179
00:08:15.300 --> 00:08:19.080
- So once again, you're going up against your old foe, Team Tome.

180
00:08:19.590 --> 00:08:21.720
So what's the game plan going to be like today?

181
00:08:21.870 --> 00:08:23.250
- I'll tell you the game plan. Is that all right?

182
00:08:23.370 --> 00:08:23.520
Yeah?

183
00:08:23.660 --> 00:08:24.640
You don't mind. I'm just going to go.

184
00:08:24.720 --> 00:08:24.990
- You got it.

185
00:08:24.990 --> 00:08:26.020
- Game plan. Here it is.

186
00:08:26.130 --> 00:08:27.210
Exploit weakness.

187
00:08:27.270 --> 00:08:29.790
Find everything we can to dominate them.

188
00:08:29.820 --> 00:08:31.020
We're gonna crush them.

189
00:08:31.320 --> 00:08:33.360
No mercy, take no prisoners.

190
00:08:33.690 --> 00:08:34.200
That's the game plan.

191
00:08:35.020 --> 00:08:37.150
- I am loving this intensity from you.

192
00:08:37.740 --> 00:08:37.830
What's going on?

193
00:08:37.830 --> 00:08:39.030
- Thank you. I mean, I don't know if you remember,

194
00:08:39.030 --> 00:08:41.330
but last year, right after Super Bowl, I broke my rib.

195
00:08:41.340 --> 00:08:42.510
I was out of the game for a while.

196
00:08:42.540 --> 00:08:43.740
It took me a long time to heal.

197
00:08:44.130 --> 00:08:45.540
Clarified some things for me.

198
00:08:45.660 --> 00:08:46.860
I'm just back with a vengeance.

199
00:08:46.890 --> 00:08:47.820
I don't know what it is today.

200
00:08:47.870 --> 00:08:49.860
Hairdryer on too hot, something?

201
00:08:49.940 --> 00:08:52.020
But listen, no question,

202
00:08:52.560 --> 00:08:53.730
this is the year of Team Mingo.

203
00:08:53.970 --> 00:08:56.820
Maybe you -- you need to rise up to my level this year.

204
00:08:58.470 --> 00:08:59.670
- Woo, okay.

205
00:08:59.670 --> 00:09:01.270
Well, any last thoughts?

206
00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:02.390
Anything left to say?

207
00:09:02.770 --> 00:09:05.780
- Yeah, I got -- I mean, I could go all day on this.

208
00:09:05.800 --> 00:09:07.600
The era of Tome is over.

209
00:09:07.780 --> 00:09:08.740
It's over, baby.

210
00:09:08.950 --> 00:09:11.490
The era of Mingo is rising.

211
00:09:11.490 --> 00:09:12.600
As a matter of fact, Solomon,

212
00:09:12.640 --> 00:09:13.840
I'm just gonna call it right now.

213
00:09:14.170 --> 00:09:15.430
The era of Alli has begun.

214
00:09:16.720 --> 00:09:17.040
- Wow. Chuck?

215
00:09:19.410 --> 00:09:21.910
- Oh, Solomon, I tell you what, I'm sitting here in this interview

216
00:09:21.940 --> 00:09:23.920
and some things are just abundantly clear.

217
00:09:24.100 --> 00:09:26.950
The first is Team Mingo is in great shape.

218
00:09:27.010 --> 00:09:30.460
Alli Patterson, is as a fierce competitor as they come and she's ready.

219
00:09:30.490 --> 00:09:33.130
And I think Team Mingo is in good shape, not just today,

220
00:09:33.520 --> 00:09:34.690
but for the foreseeable future.

221
00:09:35.500 --> 00:09:37.240
Man, I've been wrestling with this for a while

222
00:09:37.270 --> 00:09:39.520
and it just feels right to say it in this moment.

223
00:09:39.570 --> 00:09:44.580
So, effective today, I am officially announcing

224
00:09:44.580 --> 00:09:46.110
my retirement from preaching,

225
00:09:46.380 --> 00:09:47.910
and that's effective immediately

226
00:09:47.910 --> 00:09:49.590
and I won't take any further questions.

227
00:09:53.710 --> 00:09:55.120
- What was that?

228
00:09:55.840 --> 00:09:58.150
- Well, I got some work to do.

229
00:10:00.470 --> 00:10:02.750
- Wow. Anthony, I can't believe that.

230
00:10:02.960 --> 00:10:07.250
Chuck Mingo steps away from Team Mingo in the middle of the season

231
00:10:07.250 --> 00:10:09.530
and right before the biggest game of the year.

232
00:10:09.620 --> 00:10:12.200
- Undeniably, it's a growing trend in the NFL:

233
00:10:12.230 --> 00:10:15.230
Sanders, Megatron, Romo, Gronkowski.

234
00:10:15.260 --> 00:10:16.610
Luck, and now Mingo.

235
00:10:16.670 --> 00:10:17.900
- And now Mingo.

236
00:10:17.930 --> 00:10:21.140
Well, obviously, this changes the rest of the gang.

237
00:10:21.350 --> 00:10:23.680
But Chuck won't be completely out of sight.

238
00:10:23.690 --> 00:10:26.540
In fact, he'll be in the announcers booth today

239
00:10:26.660 --> 00:10:30.680
giving insights and commentary while the other guys fight it out.

240
00:10:30.980 --> 00:10:32.180
It's almost game time.

241
00:10:32.210 --> 00:10:34.010
So let's head to the field

242
00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:36.410
where we'll hear from Chuck Mingo himself.

243
00:10:36.410 --> 00:10:36.650
Guys?

244
00:10:36.830 --> 00:10:41.450
- Ladies and gentlemen, I can't believe it.

245
00:10:41.480 --> 00:10:42.680
Welcome to the booth, Mr.

246
00:10:42.680 --> 00:10:43.880
Chuck Mingo.

247
00:10:45.050 --> 00:10:45.440
[cheers]

248
00:10:45.440 --> 00:10:46.670
Chuck, I'm speechless, brother.

249
00:10:46.670 --> 00:10:49.280
Retiring at the top of your game.

250
00:10:49.310 --> 00:10:50.720
What's going on in your mind?

251
00:10:50.780 --> 00:10:53.570
- Well, Greg, I've got to tell you, it was not an easy decision,

252
00:10:53.600 --> 00:10:55.280
but I had a chance to get away and think about

253
00:10:55.280 --> 00:10:57.290
what's right for me, what's right for my family.

254
00:10:57.560 --> 00:10:59.830
And I want to do that, I want more time with my family.

255
00:10:59.840 --> 00:11:01.190
I've got some promos I want to do.

256
00:11:01.190 --> 00:11:01.700
And so I'm --

257
00:11:04.840 --> 00:11:08.410
- One second, Chuck, this could not get any weirder

258
00:11:08.440 --> 00:11:12.670
because apparently Mingo from the cap they saved on your exit

259
00:11:12.910 --> 00:11:14.680
Alli Patterson,, your prior teammate

260
00:11:14.710 --> 00:11:19.090
has just drafted Kyle Ranson on to Team Mingo.

261
00:11:20.860 --> 00:11:21.970
- What? What? Oh, man.

262
00:11:22.510 --> 00:11:23.910
- I've got to tell you what, man.

263
00:11:23.980 --> 00:11:26.170
It's a little too much to handle.

264
00:11:26.170 --> 00:11:26.980
What's your reaction?

265
00:11:27.270 --> 00:11:29.440
- I've got to tell you, though, what an aggressive move

266
00:11:29.440 --> 00:11:30.970
by Alli Cat Patterson to do this.

267
00:11:31.120 --> 00:11:32.500
I mean, basically, what she did is

268
00:11:32.500 --> 00:11:34.500
took away Brian's secret weapon, a millennial.

269
00:11:34.540 --> 00:11:36.820
And so, I mean, this is going to change the game completely.

270
00:11:37.150 --> 00:11:37.830
- That's right.

271
00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:39.910
- And now his age is going to be exposed.

272
00:11:39.960 --> 00:11:41.740
- It was the only thing keeping him young.

273
00:11:41.770 --> 00:11:43.650
It's going to really cause some difficulty.

274
00:11:43.650 --> 00:11:46.590
- It really will. You know, Alli, taking advantage,

275
00:11:46.600 --> 00:11:47.570
going for the momentum.

276
00:11:47.590 --> 00:11:49.270
So I think she's made a good call here.

277
00:11:49.480 --> 00:11:52.090
Question is, will Brian be able to come back from this?

278
00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:53.440
And in fact, that's what we're talking about today.

279
00:11:53.440 --> 00:11:55.090
All these preachers are going to be talking today

280
00:11:55.360 --> 00:11:56.560
about how to make a comeback.

281
00:11:56.590 --> 00:11:58.210
I mean, we've all had setbacks in our life.

282
00:11:58.410 --> 00:11:59.320
And they're going to be talking about

283
00:11:59.320 --> 00:12:02.440
how do you actually make a comeback in your life?

284
00:12:02.710 --> 00:12:04.600
Brian's going to have to live that out on the field today.

285
00:12:04.750 --> 00:12:05.380
- That's right, Chuck.

286
00:12:05.460 --> 00:12:07.690
Well, hey, we've got a lot to look forward to today,

287
00:12:07.720 --> 00:12:10.410
but first, some rules to rein these guys in.

288
00:12:10.450 --> 00:12:12.580
Let's head back to the studio for the rules of the game.

289
00:12:14.800 --> 00:12:17.320
- So here are the rules for today's game, though let's be honest,

290
00:12:17.320 --> 00:12:19.370
we tend to make a lot of this stuff up as we go.

291
00:12:19.390 --> 00:12:19.810
Am I right?

292
00:12:19.840 --> 00:12:20.480
- We do. Yeah.

293
00:12:20.710 --> 00:12:21.850
- Well, here's what we know so far.

294
00:12:22.150 --> 00:12:24.390
Each team will preach to six minute quarters.

295
00:12:24.760 --> 00:12:28.510
Each preacher may use three reference sources: One has to be the Bible.

296
00:12:29.070 --> 00:12:31.870
In each quarter preachers will be given a random phrase

297
00:12:31.870 --> 00:12:34.780
that they must effectively work into their message.

298
00:12:34.900 --> 00:12:38.530
- And my understanding is these are completely random.

299
00:12:38.740 --> 00:12:40.780
They have never seen them before.

300
00:12:40.810 --> 00:12:41.440
Seriously.

301
00:12:41.590 --> 00:12:43.150
- You know, it's more random than Rob Lowe

302
00:12:43.150 --> 00:12:45.370
showing up at an NFL game with a referee hat on?

303
00:12:45.400 --> 00:12:45.760
- Tell me, Paco.

304
00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:47.710
- These phrases that we've got today.

305
00:12:47.710 --> 00:12:48.150
- OK.

306
00:12:48.300 --> 00:12:50.440
- Now speaking of referee, the referee today

307
00:12:50.440 --> 00:12:52.840
has complete jurisdiction over whether or not

308
00:12:52.840 --> 00:12:55.750
the player has adequately met the above criteria

309
00:12:55.870 --> 00:12:57.790
and will award points accordingly.

310
00:12:57.880 --> 00:13:00.040
- And we're not exactly sure of his background

311
00:13:00.040 --> 00:13:02.200
and how great he's going to be at this.

312
00:13:02.320 --> 00:13:03.340
- It should be interesting.

313
00:13:03.460 --> 00:13:03.790
- That's right.

314
00:13:04.060 --> 00:13:07.090
So here is how you get points.

315
00:13:07.240 --> 00:13:10.600
A compelling message in six minutes or less: Six points.

316
00:13:10.870 --> 00:13:13.540
Correct use of the random phrase: Three points.

317
00:13:13.660 --> 00:13:18.610
Bible trivia, correct answer, that's important: One point.

318
00:13:18.700 --> 00:13:23.830
Lastly, there is an opportunity for penalty and losing three points.

319
00:13:24.070 --> 00:13:25.690
- Preaching penalties today.

320
00:13:26.320 --> 00:13:27.010
Negative points.

321
00:13:27.040 --> 00:13:27.660
- Negative points.

322
00:13:27.700 --> 00:13:31.090
- `This should be very, very entertaining and very, very interesting.

323
00:13:31.090 --> 00:13:33.670
Right now, we're going back to the booth with Gregg and Chuck.

324
00:13:34.030 --> 00:13:34.500
Take it away.

325
00:13:35.620 --> 00:13:37.040
- Chuck, it's a lot of rules.

326
00:13:37.060 --> 00:13:38.980
I think it's gonna be difficult to follow.

327
00:13:39.460 --> 00:13:40.770
- Especially for Brian Tome.

328
00:13:41.110 --> 00:13:42.970
- Yeah. Could not agree more.

329
00:13:43.390 --> 00:13:44.500
Well, hey, folks,

330
00:13:44.500 --> 00:13:45.410
it's time to meet our players.

331
00:13:45.430 --> 00:13:48.520
Let's head down to the field for today's starting lineups.

332
00:13:54.800 --> 00:13:59.210
- And now your 2020 starting lineups.

333
00:14:00.170 --> 00:14:01.100
The home team:

334
00:14:02.090 --> 00:14:06.890
introducing an 18 year Super Bowl of Preaching veteran,

335
00:14:07.580 --> 00:14:11.780
a pulpit pounding pastors from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

336
00:14:12.740 --> 00:14:17.340
He's a master of the motorcycle and overlending overlord.

337
00:14:17.900 --> 00:14:20.840
The man, the myth, the legend: Brian Tome.

338
00:14:20.840 --> 00:14:21.170
(music: BLOW)

339
00:14:57.480 --> 00:15:00.030
And now your visiting team,

340
00:15:00.960 --> 00:15:04.300
a three year Super Bowl of Preaching veteran.

341
00:15:04.710 --> 00:15:09.510
She's got more spice than a level five Pad Thai,

342
00:15:09.510 --> 00:15:12.000
alongside a man who's a top shelf athlete,

343
00:15:12.480 --> 00:15:13.800
if he could only reach it.

344
00:15:14.700 --> 00:15:19.320
A team that throws so much shade, you'd think they had branches.

345
00:15:19.620 --> 00:15:21.690
Let's hear it for Team Mingo.

346
00:15:21.690 --> 00:15:21.960
(music: High Hopes)

347
00:15:49.460 --> 00:15:51.740
- Well, Chuck, there they are.

348
00:15:51.770 --> 00:15:55.460
You know, it's quite a display of something out there

349
00:15:55.460 --> 00:15:57.020
by Team Tome.

350
00:15:57.020 --> 00:15:57.500
- Something is right.

351
00:15:57.530 --> 00:15:59.650
Yes. You know, Brian does this every year.

352
00:15:59.660 --> 00:16:01.280
It's just part of his pre-game warm up.

353
00:16:02.150 --> 00:16:03.950
I just find it very disturbing.

354
00:16:04.010 --> 00:16:05.210
- I couldn't agree more.

355
00:16:05.240 --> 00:16:08.840
Well, you know, today, as Lena and Paco said,

356
00:16:08.840 --> 00:16:11.660
everything's going to come down to the complete jurisdiction

357
00:16:11.930 --> 00:16:14.770
of our supposed referee, Matt Castleman,

358
00:16:14.780 --> 00:16:16.370
West Side Community Pastor.

359
00:16:16.550 --> 00:16:19.130
- Yeah. You know what? I swear, Alli Patterson

360
00:16:19.130 --> 00:16:20.990
just told me she bought a pair of sneakers

361
00:16:20.990 --> 00:16:22.580
from him at Footlocker just yesterday,

362
00:16:22.610 --> 00:16:24.570
but he's got all the responsibility.

363
00:16:24.620 --> 00:16:26.240
I'm just not sure he knows what he's doing.

364
00:16:26.720 --> 00:16:28.940
- Yeah. You know, Chuck, today we're getting ready

365
00:16:28.940 --> 00:16:30.500
to head down for the coin toss,

366
00:16:30.530 --> 00:16:32.300
but I think you've got some sponsorships.

367
00:16:32.360 --> 00:16:34.400
- I do. Yeah. I love doing these sponsorships.

368
00:16:34.400 --> 00:16:38.240
And so this kick off today is sponsored by the Yeti Bible,

369
00:16:38.270 --> 00:16:41.720
wildly stronger to keep biblically accurate longer.

370
00:16:42.380 --> 00:16:45.110
You know, Greg, I mean, it's slightly overpriced cover,

371
00:16:45.140 --> 00:16:47.510
but the contents have eternal value.

372
00:16:47.540 --> 00:16:49.760
The Yeti Bible. Yes, that's the book for me.

373
00:16:51.950 --> 00:16:54.920
- All right, folks, let's head down to the field for the coin toss.

374
00:16:56.870 --> 00:16:57.650
- Bring it in for the coin toss.

375
00:16:57.650 --> 00:16:59.630
I want a good clean game.

376
00:17:00.620 --> 00:17:03.440
Brian, as home team, you will call the coin in the air.

377
00:17:03.470 --> 00:17:05.540
This is the coin. This side is heads, this side is ta--

378
00:17:08.060 --> 00:17:09.200
No, this side is heads.

379
00:17:09.440 --> 00:17:11.050
This one is --

380
00:17:11.050 --> 00:17:12.380
You know what? We'll just call it when it lands.

381
00:17:13.010 --> 00:17:13.760
Call it in the air.

382
00:17:14.740 --> 00:17:15.750
- Tails, what I be kicking.

383
00:17:19.100 --> 00:17:20.300
- It -- Yeah, let's just go with tails.

384
00:17:20.600 --> 00:17:22.040
Would you like to kick or receive the Bible?

385
00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:23.060
- I will receive.

386
00:17:23.630 --> 00:17:26.360
- Tome wins the toss, chooses to receive the Bible.

387
00:17:27.020 --> 00:17:28.660
Patterson back with the kick.

388
00:17:33.130 --> 00:17:36.360
- Oh, my goodness, was that a touchback?

389
00:17:36.620 --> 00:17:37.950
Can you even get a touchback?

390
00:17:38.060 --> 00:17:42.470
- For the first time in 18 years there's a touchback for the kickoff.

391
00:17:42.490 --> 00:17:45.220
- The glitter shoes going to work.

392
00:17:45.820 --> 00:17:47.660
- Touchback, everybody touch your back.

393
00:17:48.830 --> 00:17:50.300
- He has no idea what a touchback means.

394
00:17:50.300 --> 00:17:51.310
- He does not, no.

395
00:17:54.220 --> 00:17:57.340
- All right, Brian, please choose your random phrase.

396
00:18:00.280 --> 00:18:01.820
And preferably not make a mess.

397
00:18:03.320 --> 00:18:08.750
Your random phrase is: that's why you pillage before you burn.

398
00:18:10.910 --> 00:18:14.030
- That's why you pillage before you burn.

399
00:18:14.110 --> 00:18:15.890
Wow, let's see what he does with this.

400
00:18:17.210 --> 00:18:18.920
- Yeah, we're gonna have some fun today,

401
00:18:18.950 --> 00:18:21.030
but we also want to spiritually grow today.

402
00:18:21.560 --> 00:18:23.060
So let's pray a little before we go any further.

403
00:18:23.100 --> 00:18:24.740
God, thank you for the ability laugh.

404
00:18:25.040 --> 00:18:28.710
I pray for growth, real growth and real insights to happen

405
00:18:28.710 --> 00:18:31.430
to all of us who are a part of the Super Bowl of Preaching today.

406
00:18:31.430 --> 00:18:35.900
I praised this according to the character and identity of Jesus, Amen.

407
00:18:37.430 --> 00:18:39.400
So I don't know about you, but I like to win.

408
00:18:39.410 --> 00:18:40.490
Anybody else like to win?

409
00:18:40.910 --> 00:18:41.810
I like to win. [cheering]

410
00:18:42.620 --> 00:18:45.560
Winning doesn't necessarily mean beating the person

411
00:18:45.740 --> 00:18:46.700
that's sitting beside you.

412
00:18:46.700 --> 00:18:52.220
It means whatever lane God has you in, you need to win at that,

413
00:18:52.220 --> 00:18:52.850
whatever it is.

414
00:18:53.000 --> 00:18:56.540
There's something God wants out of your life and you've got to win.

415
00:18:57.020 --> 00:19:00.140
And the truth is, many of us in here are not winning.

416
00:19:00.590 --> 00:19:01.940
Many of us are losing.

417
00:19:01.940 --> 00:19:05.590
Many of us are not happy h ow our relation life is going.

418
00:19:05.620 --> 00:19:08.510
We're not happy with where our credit card is.

419
00:19:08.660 --> 00:19:10.310
We're not happy with the variety of things.

420
00:19:10.310 --> 00:19:12.170
And for those of us who are losing,

421
00:19:12.200 --> 00:19:13.490
it doesn't mean that we're a loser.

422
00:19:13.940 --> 00:19:16.310
It means you're primed for a comeback.

423
00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:18.380
You're primed for a comeback.

424
00:19:18.650 --> 00:19:20.840
You're primed to go to a whole new place.

425
00:19:20.910 --> 00:19:23.000
I think we can learn something from Jesus today

426
00:19:23.360 --> 00:19:27.280
because Jesus wasn't always sitting on top of everything.

427
00:19:27.290 --> 00:19:31.970
In fact, oftentimes Jesus had significant, massive, massive pain.

428
00:19:32.210 --> 00:19:35.660
And the way that he ended up winning, because all people,

429
00:19:35.660 --> 00:19:39.410
whether atheist, agnostic, Islam, Jewish, Christian,

430
00:19:39.410 --> 00:19:42.290
whatever stripe we are, would recognize Him

431
00:19:42.290 --> 00:19:46.340
as the most influential person in all of human history, bar none.

432
00:19:46.340 --> 00:19:48.920
How did he win? He had amazing comeback.

433
00:19:48.920 --> 00:19:52.130
And specifically what He did is He knew how to cheat.

434
00:19:53.060 --> 00:19:54.950
Yes, He knew how to cheat.

435
00:19:55.010 --> 00:19:58.970
By cheat, what I'm describing that as is similar to say,

436
00:19:58.970 --> 00:20:02.420
well, she knows she cheated death in that car accident.

437
00:20:02.450 --> 00:20:04.400
Cheating is something should have happened

438
00:20:04.400 --> 00:20:05.580
and something totally different happened.

439
00:20:05.840 --> 00:20:11.420
How does a guy who's from Nazareth become who He is today?

440
00:20:11.540 --> 00:20:14.270
It's like He cheated the history of Nazareth.

441
00:20:14.690 --> 00:20:16.700
This was a guy who went off script.

442
00:20:16.970 --> 00:20:20.330
This was a guy when when the system came His way

443
00:20:20.330 --> 00:20:21.980
and they said you should play this way.

444
00:20:22.310 --> 00:20:25.010
He went against the rules of that culture

445
00:20:25.280 --> 00:20:28.040
to enable himself to be the powerful person.

446
00:20:28.120 --> 00:20:29.240
He cheated the system.

447
00:20:29.540 --> 00:20:30.650
In what ways?

448
00:20:30.650 --> 00:20:31.550
Well, I'll give you a few.

449
00:20:31.550 --> 00:20:33.830
One: he enlisted and empowered women.

450
00:20:35.180 --> 00:20:36.010
He enlisted and empowered women.

451
00:20:36.010 --> 00:20:44.920
There's these rumors that exist by so and so religious, enlightened people
to think that Jesus had a sexual affair with Mary Magdalene.

452
00:20:44.950 --> 00:20:48.160
We say this in our culture because we have no idea

453
00:20:48.160 --> 00:20:49.960
of what healthy relationships look like,

454
00:20:50.320 --> 00:20:55.060
but also because we can't imagine Jesus actually valuing and using women.

455
00:20:55.060 --> 00:20:57.880
He didn't have anything sexual is going on with Mary Magdalene.

456
00:20:58.090 --> 00:21:00.520
He recognized that he was talking to women

457
00:21:00.670 --> 00:21:02.590
and he was bringing them into his circle.

458
00:21:02.590 --> 00:21:07.090
And women for 2000 years have been a part of the movement of Christ.

459
00:21:07.590 --> 00:21:09.820
I was thinking about this just this last week

460
00:21:09.820 --> 00:21:13.500
with the awful unexpected death of Kobe Bryant.

461
00:21:14.290 --> 00:21:16.010
Kobe Bryant understands a comeback.

462
00:21:17.380 --> 00:21:19.510
Who knows how many games he won in the comeback.

463
00:21:19.840 --> 00:21:23.540
He had a moral failure a number of years ago he had to comeback from.

464
00:21:24.040 --> 00:21:27.010
And he also had four beautiful daughters.

465
00:21:27.010 --> 00:21:28.280
And he said, "I'm a girl dad."

466
00:21:28.510 --> 00:21:31.880
This is what's being talked about now #girldad.

467
00:21:32.170 --> 00:21:34.180
I relate to that, because I'm a dad.

468
00:21:34.180 --> 00:21:36.940
I put this on one of my Instagram stories just the other day.

469
00:21:37.210 --> 00:21:40.960
I'm a dad. I've got two daughters and they're every bit as capable

470
00:21:41.020 --> 00:21:44.110
as any son I have or anybody else who could do anything.

471
00:21:44.120 --> 00:21:47.940
Jesus leveraged women, not just depending on --

472
00:21:48.220 --> 00:21:50.620
This was a cheat. Nobody was doing this.

473
00:21:50.880 --> 00:21:51.730
This sounds, of course.

474
00:21:52.070 --> 00:21:55.960
Nobody. Nobody did this in the first century in the ancient world.

475
00:21:55.990 --> 00:21:59.410
Nobody. He also ignored manmade rules.

476
00:21:59.920 --> 00:22:01.990
There are probably the manmade rules you're living by.

477
00:22:02.470 --> 00:22:03.490
You should look this way.

478
00:22:03.520 --> 00:22:05.010
You should spend your money this way.

479
00:22:05.020 --> 00:22:06.250
You should act that way.

480
00:22:06.280 --> 00:22:09.280
This is the way you should structure your college career.

481
00:22:09.310 --> 00:22:11.560
This is the way your career choices go.

482
00:22:11.770 --> 00:22:16.300
He regularly stepped outside the manmade rules of that society.

483
00:22:16.750 --> 00:22:20.980
One example was how he was treating the Sabbath.

484
00:22:21.640 --> 00:22:24.390
The Sabbath was a place and the time when Jews would rest.

485
00:22:24.430 --> 00:22:28.450
And on Saturdays Jesus was going through one time a wheat field,

486
00:22:28.450 --> 00:22:30.040
and he had his disciples following along

487
00:22:30.340 --> 00:22:33.440
and they're picking the different heads of wheat.

488
00:22:33.770 --> 00:22:36.190
And as they're going and picking them, they're eating them,

489
00:22:36.190 --> 00:22:37.180
which is very critical.

490
00:22:37.180 --> 00:22:40.600
You know, you've got to really enjoy the wheat field

491
00:22:40.600 --> 00:22:41.620
while you're doing this,

492
00:22:41.650 --> 00:22:44.200
because this is why you pillage before you burn.

493
00:22:44.500 --> 00:22:46.830
You want to be able to eat as you're --

494
00:22:46.830 --> 00:22:47.020
- What do you think?

495
00:22:47.020 --> 00:22:47.950
-- going along?

496
00:22:48.190 --> 00:22:49.870
- I would say he could have done better,

497
00:22:49.900 --> 00:22:52.240
but hey, he fit it in there. - Yeah, that was a long walk.

498
00:22:54.280 --> 00:22:56.150
- And the religious people jumped up and said,

499
00:22:56.150 --> 00:22:57.910
"HA, you're not supposed to be doing this on the Sabbath.

500
00:22:57.910 --> 00:22:58.750
You're working."

501
00:22:58.960 --> 00:23:00.440
This was a manmade rule they had.

502
00:23:00.470 --> 00:23:01.330
It wasn't his rule.

503
00:23:01.510 --> 00:23:03.190
You could actually pick wheat and eat.

504
00:23:03.220 --> 00:23:04.300
And just what Jesus says:

505
00:23:09.160 --> 00:23:11.430
He cheated on manmade rules.

506
00:23:11.440 --> 00:23:12.340
He didn't obey them.

507
00:23:12.490 --> 00:23:15.430
He also cheated in terms of what a religious person would do

508
00:23:15.730 --> 00:23:18.040
in that he lived a relatable life.

509
00:23:18.730 --> 00:23:21.760
In a day and time when religious people were making sure

510
00:23:21.760 --> 00:23:25.780
everyone saw they're religious and they had their gowns on

511
00:23:25.780 --> 00:23:28.330
or their whole, you know, the things that they would wear

512
00:23:28.330 --> 00:23:30.040
and phylacteries. There were these boxes

513
00:23:30.040 --> 00:23:32.260
they would strap to the wrists and to their head

514
00:23:32.260 --> 00:23:34.390
that had Bible verse in that.

515
00:23:34.390 --> 00:23:36.610
They would walk around and say, "Woo, look, Mr.

516
00:23:36.610 --> 00:23:37.540
Spiritual."

517
00:23:37.930 --> 00:23:42.090
Jesus came w alking like somebody who is a tradesman,

518
00:23:42.450 --> 00:23:44.640
talking like somebody who understood people.

519
00:23:44.850 --> 00:23:47.040
And he actually did things that people could understand

520
00:23:47.040 --> 00:23:49.620
instead of just putting himself away

521
00:23:49.620 --> 00:23:51.630
in the midst of some religious little catacomb.

522
00:23:51.780 --> 00:23:52.240
He said this:

523
00:23:52.240 --> 00:23:53.940
the son of man came eating and drinking.

524
00:23:58.710 --> 00:24:03.000
Jesus was accused of drinking alcohol, of eating fine food,

525
00:24:03.000 --> 00:24:04.320
because he did.

526
00:24:05.340 --> 00:24:07.050
He did, but they just thought that he overdid it.

527
00:24:07.080 --> 00:24:08.520
But he actually didn't overdo it.

528
00:24:08.700 --> 00:24:11.750
The reason why he was so powerful is he was relatable.

529
00:24:11.900 --> 00:24:13.020
He would flip the script.

530
00:24:13.170 --> 00:24:15.600
He would cheat the script on one religious person, looks like.

531
00:24:15.960 --> 00:24:18.950
So I'm really excited about our series, Phantom Lake

532
00:24:18.960 --> 00:24:20.550
that's on Amazon Prime right now.

533
00:24:20.580 --> 00:24:22.560
Over one million minutes viewed so far.

534
00:24:22.560 --> 00:24:22.860
[cheers]

535
00:24:22.860 --> 00:24:24.060
It's been fantastic.

536
00:24:24.600 --> 00:24:27.180
And what we've done is we've cheated the script

537
00:24:27.180 --> 00:24:29.460
that religious people can't be identifiable,

538
00:24:29.460 --> 00:24:30.960
that you can't be relatable.

539
00:24:31.160 --> 00:24:34.560
It's an entirely mind altering experience for some people.

540
00:24:34.560 --> 00:24:35.760
It's just a different deal.

541
00:24:35.790 --> 00:24:37.830
I'm telling you right now, for you to come back,

542
00:24:37.830 --> 00:24:39.570
you're going to have to cheat the system.

543
00:24:40.110 --> 00:24:41.630
For you to win, you're got to have to cheat.

544
00:24:41.970 --> 00:24:43.860
You're going to have to start spending money

545
00:24:43.860 --> 00:24:46.350
the way different people are not spending money.

546
00:24:46.560 --> 00:24:49.860
You're going to have to start actually using all of your vacation time

547
00:24:50.130 --> 00:24:52.020
instead of leaving some on the table.

548
00:24:52.230 --> 00:24:55.770
You're going to have to start to say things that no one wants to say.

549
00:24:55.940 --> 00:24:59.640
You're going to have to start to cheat to be unusual,

550
00:24:59.790 --> 00:25:02.790
to flip the script if you want to win,

551
00:25:02.880 --> 00:25:05.220
because God wants you to win and have a comeback.

552
00:25:07.730 --> 00:25:08.900
[whistle] - End of the first quarter.

553
00:25:09.050 --> 00:25:10.210
- Touchdown Team Tome.

554
00:25:14.060 --> 00:25:16.730
Brian, you were awarded six points for a great message

555
00:25:16.760 --> 00:25:20.450
and you did incorporate the random phrase decently.

556
00:25:21.530 --> 00:25:23.030
I'm going to give you two points instead of

557
00:25:23.030 --> 00:25:25.280
the full three points for incorporating the random phrase.

558
00:25:25.880 --> 00:25:26.480
- Wow. [boos]

559
00:25:28.040 --> 00:25:29.170
- This ref, I tell you what.

560
00:25:29.360 --> 00:25:31.160
He just takes all kinds of license.

561
00:25:31.160 --> 00:25:32.210
And now he has the crowd going against him.

562
00:25:32.300 --> 00:25:33.080
- That's right.

563
00:25:33.740 --> 00:25:36.170
- Would you like to try for the extra Bible trivia point?

564
00:25:36.350 --> 00:25:37.010
- Yes, I would.

565
00:25:38.880 --> 00:25:44.140
- Your trivia question: In the Book of Matthew 13:8,

566
00:25:44.500 --> 00:25:47.740
Jesus tells a parable of the farmer who scatters seeds

567
00:25:47.740 --> 00:25:50.140
on good soil where crops eventually grow.

568
00:25:50.860 --> 00:25:54.400
Speaking of crops, is an avocado, a fruit or vegetable?

569
00:25:56.570 --> 00:25:56.800
[laghter]

570
00:25:56.800 --> 00:25:58.120
- It took an unexpected turn there.

571
00:25:58.150 --> 00:25:58.390
- Yes, it did.

572
00:25:58.390 --> 00:25:59.740
- Three seconds.

573
00:25:59.740 --> 00:26:01.010
- Fruit. - That is correct.

574
00:26:02.580 --> 00:26:03.630
- Redeems himself.

575
00:26:06.430 --> 00:26:09.440
- Six points for a great message, two points for random phrase

576
00:26:09.470 --> 00:26:11.900
and one point results in an end of first quarter score:

577
00:26:12.050 --> 00:26:14.350
Team Tome 9, Team Mingo 0.

578
00:26:14.540 --> 00:26:15.650
That's the end of the first quarter.

579
00:26:16.070 --> 00:26:19.340
- All right. Well, Chuck, man, we were talking about Tome's age.

580
00:26:19.370 --> 00:26:21.230
I thought he came out on fire.

581
00:26:21.260 --> 00:26:23.420
He clearly knew what he was up against.

582
00:26:23.420 --> 00:26:26.030
He threw in that reference to an Insta story, very hip.

583
00:26:26.050 --> 00:26:27.320
- Very, very hip.

584
00:26:27.470 --> 00:26:27.920
I tell you what,

585
00:26:27.920 --> 00:26:30.170
Brian did exactly what you'd expect him to do.

586
00:26:30.320 --> 00:26:31.850
He is a consummate competitor.

587
00:26:32.000 --> 00:26:34.940
And I really hope this game does not come down to the officiating.

588
00:26:36.590 --> 00:26:37.760
- Couldn't agree more, Chuck.

589
00:26:38.480 --> 00:26:40.560
Hey, folks, we know you didn't come for the preaching.

590
00:26:40.580 --> 00:26:42.830
Let's head to our first commercial break.

591
00:26:50.830 --> 00:26:52.630
- Yeah, my mom's been hounding me to come visit,

592
00:26:52.670 --> 00:26:55.060
but I just don't feel like spending the money to come home, so--

593
00:26:55.090 --> 00:26:57.100
- Flights are expensive.

594
00:26:57.100 --> 00:27:00.070
Now Amazon Prime can save you big on travel.

595
00:27:00.370 --> 00:27:02.590
- Jeff? - Hold on. I think someone's in my house.

596
00:27:03.670 --> 00:27:05.740
- Introducing Amazon Prime travel.

597
00:27:05.740 --> 00:27:07.090
- How did you get in here?

598
00:27:07.480 --> 00:27:08.640
- Your Amazon key.

599
00:27:08.640 --> 00:27:11.270
- How did you know I was talking about traveling?

600
00:27:11.650 --> 00:27:13.480
- Oh, you have lots of Amazon devices.

601
00:27:17.350 --> 00:27:18.490
We listen to everything.

602
00:27:20.050 --> 00:27:22.870
Now included with your prime membership, Amazon Prime travel

603
00:27:22.870 --> 00:27:25.570
can get you from here to your mom's house cheaper than ever.

604
00:27:25.870 --> 00:27:29.620
Just select your destination, order your trip, get in the box and then --

605
00:27:29.620 --> 00:27:31.450
- I'm sorry, did you say, "Get in the box"?

606
00:27:31.860 --> 00:27:34.970
- Right. Just get in the box and enjoy that free 2 day shipping

607
00:27:34.970 --> 00:27:36.570
you just can't get enough of that.

608
00:27:36.820 --> 00:27:38.960
- But I didn't pick a destination or order anything.

609
00:27:39.160 --> 00:27:40.190
- Oh, your mom did.

610
00:27:40.480 --> 00:27:41.740
There's one of us with her right now.

611
00:27:43.240 --> 00:27:44.980
- Hi, Jeff. Isn't this exciting?

612
00:27:45.190 --> 00:27:48.160
- She set up subscribe and save, so you'll be visiting every month.

613
00:27:48.610 --> 00:27:51.010
- Smart. Well, get in the box.

614
00:27:51.010 --> 00:27:52.090
And in just two days --

615
00:27:52.120 --> 00:27:53.710
- Guys, I don't know.

616
00:27:53.710 --> 00:27:55.030
I mean -- -Get in the box, Jeffrey.

617
00:27:59.350 --> 00:28:00.370
- Fine. - Come to momma.

618
00:28:07.150 --> 00:28:08.230
- Oh, I almost forgot.

619
00:28:08.590 --> 00:28:09.850
Whenever you ship yourself,

620
00:28:12.490 --> 00:28:14.110
you always want good ventilation.

621
00:28:27.170 --> 00:28:28.850
- You don't want to watch this commercial.

622
00:28:29.450 --> 00:28:31.490
You don't want to know that you can have an impact in the world.

623
00:28:31.520 --> 00:28:32.240
Not you.

624
00:28:32.750 --> 00:28:35.270
You don't want to know that you've stepped into something bigger

625
00:28:35.270 --> 00:28:39.470
than a church service here or that you're part of
a community of people who are literally changing the world.

626
00:28:39.650 --> 00:28:42.560
You don't want to know that a GO Trip will actually change your life,

627
00:28:42.560 --> 00:28:44.140
that you'll actually experience God.

628
00:28:44.420 --> 00:28:45.710
You don't want to know any of that.

629
00:28:45.770 --> 00:28:50.330
What you want, you want in the speech from a Pro Football Hall of Famer.

630
00:28:50.450 --> 00:28:51.830
So here's Anthony Munoz.

631
00:28:51.860 --> 00:28:53.390
Pro Football Hall of Famer,

632
00:28:53.390 --> 00:28:54.910
to give you some cheesy, inspirational quotes.

633
00:28:56.060 --> 00:28:58.730
- Life is about impact, not income.

634
00:28:58.820 --> 00:29:01.670
The only limit to your impact is your imagination.

635
00:29:02.030 --> 00:29:05.240
There is no I in team, but there is an I in impact.

636
00:29:23.340 --> 00:29:27.690
- I'm trying to lead these people someplace, not just to Phantom Lake,

637
00:29:27.710 --> 00:29:29.870
but some place in their life, I'm seeing some breakers.

638
00:29:34.490 --> 00:29:36.380
That's what it looks like to lead:

639
00:29:36.380 --> 00:29:38.050
you're taking people where they don't want to go.

640
00:29:39.630 --> 00:29:42.120
From this point out, I'm your contact.

641
00:29:44.640 --> 00:29:46.670
There's a destination where God wants to take me to.

642
00:29:47.290 --> 00:29:48.670
Not everyone here is gonna get there.

643
00:29:51.350 --> 00:29:53.180
It will be the hardest riding you'll have done in your life.

644
00:30:27.340 --> 00:30:33.550
- Coffee. There's just something about
it that brings comfort, warmth, belonging.

645
00:30:34.750 --> 00:30:39.010
One of the most expensive coffees in the world is Kopi Luwak,

646
00:30:39.510 --> 00:30:41.740
a specialty coffee from Indonesia.

647
00:30:42.880 --> 00:30:46.030
And what makes this coffee so special, you ask.

648
00:30:46.600 --> 00:30:51.850
Kopi Luwak is a coffee that consists of partially digested coffee cherries

649
00:30:52.180 --> 00:30:56.110
which have been eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet.

650
00:30:57.040 --> 00:31:01.670
The cherries are fermented as they pass through the Asian weasel's intestines.

651
00:31:02.290 --> 00:31:05.200
And after being defecated with other fecal matter,

652
00:31:05.800 --> 00:31:09.730
they are carefully harvested, collected and roasted

653
00:31:10.570 --> 00:31:15.820
and turned into the amazing coffee we're
serving you t-his weekend at Crossroads.

654
00:31:27.170 --> 00:31:29.770
- Greg, I've got to tell you, this coffee is the sh--

655
00:31:30.160 --> 00:31:31.220
- Thank you, Chuck.

656
00:31:31.360 --> 00:31:32.500
Thank you, brother.

657
00:31:32.860 --> 00:31:33.640
Thank you.

658
00:31:33.970 --> 00:31:37.030
Hey, by the way, we're about to hear from your old teammate,

659
00:31:37.030 --> 00:31:39.040
Alli Patterson,. What do you expect?

660
00:31:39.100 --> 00:31:41.290
= I tell you what, 100% fire.

661
00:31:41.320 --> 00:31:42.730
Alli came to play.

662
00:31:42.760 --> 00:31:44.740
I think she's going to blow it away here in the second quarter.

663
00:31:44.800 --> 00:31:47.470
- All right. Let's see. Back down to the field for Alli Patterson.

664
00:31:53.070 --> 00:31:55.170
- Alli, please choose your random phrase.

665
00:31:57.090 --> 00:32:02.760
Your random phrase is: And that's how I learned to belly dance.

666
00:32:04.920 --> 00:32:06.060
- Ah, could be true.

667
00:32:06.150 --> 00:32:07.660
- And that's how I learned to belly dance.

668
00:32:07.710 --> 00:32:07.850
OK.

669
00:32:08.220 --> 00:32:11.460
- Ok. Well, hey, everybody, before we begin,

670
00:32:11.520 --> 00:32:14.160
I just want to show you something that happened last year

671
00:32:14.370 --> 00:32:17.190
right here on this stage at the Super Bowl of Preaching.

672
00:32:17.340 --> 00:32:17.910
Check this out.

673
00:32:18.780 --> 00:32:22.950
Mark my words, one of us will be wearing them Mahomes jersey

674
00:32:23.310 --> 00:32:25.440
on this stage next year.

675
00:32:25.710 --> 00:32:26.660
That's the long game.

676
00:32:26.660 --> 00:32:27.670
Right here, baby.

677
00:32:27.960 --> 00:32:30.390
The Mahomes jersey is being worn.

678
00:32:30.690 --> 00:32:33.750
Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are in the Super Bowl.

679
00:32:33.750 --> 00:32:36.930
That was one year ago this weekend.

680
00:32:36.960 --> 00:32:38.940
And I know we're supposed to be humble and all that,

681
00:32:38.940 --> 00:32:41.030
but it's so fun to be, right sometimes.

682
00:32:41.030 --> 00:32:41.430
[whistle]

683
00:32:45.060 --> 00:32:46.020
- He drops a flag. - Oh, come on. [boos]

684
00:32:47.700 --> 00:32:48.900
- Hold on. Hold on.

685
00:32:48.930 --> 00:32:49.870
No booing. - Some booing from the crowd.

686
00:32:51.630 --> 00:32:53.030
- That's a that's a good flag.

687
00:32:53.220 --> 00:32:53.360
- A good one?!

688
00:32:53.360 --> 00:32:57.330
- I just wanted to take a moment to say, yeah, you called that a year ago.

689
00:32:57.450 --> 00:33:02.220
- I did. - In the game of sports, there is a special point system

690
00:33:02.220 --> 00:33:03.350
called the prophecy point.

691
00:33:03.350 --> 00:33:03.680
[cheers] - I love it!

692
00:33:04.930 --> 00:33:06.040
- What is happening?

693
00:33:06.040 --> 00:33:08.460
- So I award you two PPs.

694
00:33:08.610 --> 00:33:10.100
- I will take the PPs.

695
00:33:10.740 --> 00:33:11.670
Thank you.

696
00:33:12.780 --> 00:33:14.060
- This is off the rails, Chuck.

697
00:33:14.100 --> 00:33:15.060
- It really is.

698
00:33:15.510 --> 00:33:18.510
- I mean, knew that commercial and now some PPs, itt's awesome.

699
00:33:19.800 --> 00:33:23.220
Listen, if you want to make a comeback, what you need to do is

700
00:33:23.220 --> 00:33:25.230
find the best change point.

701
00:33:25.290 --> 00:33:28.260
And Patrick Mahomes is in the Super Bowl this year because

702
00:33:28.260 --> 00:33:30.000
he is the king of the comeback.

703
00:33:30.240 --> 00:33:33.780
This is a guy who knows how to find the change point in any football game

704
00:33:34.020 --> 00:33:37.140
and grab on to it and squeeze it for all it's worth.

705
00:33:37.380 --> 00:33:40.320
Do you know that the Chiefs were down four games in their season

706
00:33:40.320 --> 00:33:44.700
by more than 10 points and they came back and won all four of them.

707
00:33:44.700 --> 00:33:46.440
They were 4 - 0 in those games.

708
00:33:46.530 --> 00:33:51.030
And if you follow the Chiefs or the NFL at all, you surely heard

709
00:33:51.270 --> 00:33:54.930
about the best example in the AFC divisional game versus the Texans.

710
00:33:55.290 --> 00:33:58.920
I mean, they were down 24 points in the second quarter, 24 - 0

711
00:34:00.600 --> 00:34:06.120
and in record breaking fashion came back to lead by halftime.

712
00:34:06.340 --> 00:34:10.830
And Mahomes, h e did seven straight touchdown drives in that game

713
00:34:10.830 --> 00:34:13.980
for a victory of 51 - 31.

714
00:34:14.220 --> 00:34:17.220
He smashed every comeback record there was.

715
00:34:17.760 --> 00:34:21.150
And it's because Mahomes knows the secret of the comeback.

716
00:34:21.840 --> 00:34:26.400
And the secret he knows is what you and I
need to know so much for our own lives.

717
00:34:26.580 --> 00:34:27.690
The same thing is true.

718
00:34:28.200 --> 00:34:32.310
The lowest point of the game is the best change point.

719
00:34:33.600 --> 00:34:36.480
When he was asked after the game, what were you thinking,

720
00:34:36.480 --> 00:34:40.020
saying, feeling on the sidelines when you were down by 24 points?

721
00:34:40.020 --> 00:34:41.160
Like what was going on?

722
00:34:41.460 --> 00:34:44.790
And he told the guy that asked him that in the press conference

723
00:34:44.790 --> 00:34:45.960
exactly what he said.

724
00:34:46.830 --> 00:34:48.960
He said to his teammates, "Guys.

725
00:34:49.980 --> 00:34:51.060
This game looks over.

726
00:34:51.540 --> 00:34:54.660
As a matter of fact, everyone says it's over," he said.

727
00:34:54.720 --> 00:34:59.520
"I say this is the best time to do something special."

728
00:34:59.940 --> 00:35:03.570
He took the lowest point of the game and he made it their change point.

729
00:35:03.990 --> 00:35:08.820
He knows that we can't mount a comeback unless something very important happens.

730
00:35:09.240 --> 00:35:13.920
He knows we can't mount a comeback unless we admit we're at the bottom.

731
00:35:15.860 --> 00:35:19.610
I was personally at the bottom in my life some years ago.

732
00:35:20.120 --> 00:35:23.090
I mean, I was facing all kinds of low points.

733
00:35:23.420 --> 00:35:27.200
I was facing low points in my career, in my marriage,

734
00:35:27.230 --> 00:35:30.200
in my friendships, in my choice of hobbies.

735
00:35:30.230 --> 00:35:32.440
I mean, I even took a belly dancing class

736
00:35:32.450 --> 00:35:34.170
and that's how I learned how to belly dance.

737
00:35:34.690 --> 00:35:35.820
- Oh, wow.

738
00:35:35.990 --> 00:35:38.370
- Alli Patterson for the strong use of random phrase.

739
00:35:38.370 --> 00:35:39.760
- I didn't see it coming.

740
00:35:39.760 --> 00:35:40.570
[cheers]

741
00:35:40.640 --> 00:35:42.320
- That's what you call a low point.

742
00:35:43.360 --> 00:35:43.780
- Yeah, it is.

743
00:35:45.010 --> 00:35:47.090
- I was walking through my house one day

744
00:35:47.120 --> 00:35:49.130
and I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror

745
00:35:49.550 --> 00:35:52.070
and I actually just stopped and stared at myself permanent.

746
00:35:52.730 --> 00:35:56.150
And I started talking to myself and I started talking to God in that moment.

747
00:35:56.150 --> 00:35:59.060
And I said, "It's time to tell yourself the truth.

748
00:36:00.150 --> 00:36:01.740
Alli, you're a shameful wife.

749
00:36:02.520 --> 00:36:03.750
You're a terrible friend.

750
00:36:04.530 --> 00:36:07.140
You are just dishonorable, you're not good.

751
00:36:07.860 --> 00:36:08.910
You're not kind.

752
00:36:09.390 --> 00:36:11.820
You're just great at being nice to the right people.

753
00:36:12.810 --> 00:36:17.860
The truth is, you have the reputation that your character has earned you."

754
00:36:19.340 --> 00:36:23.050
And when I told God that in that moment, I finally told myself the truth.

755
00:36:23.080 --> 00:36:27.040
What I didn't know is that a year or two later I would come back to that moment.

756
00:36:27.250 --> 00:36:30.220
I would look at that moment and think it was right then actually,

757
00:36:30.400 --> 00:36:33.740
it was right then that the momentum began to shift.

758
00:36:33.790 --> 00:36:35.260
But most of us won't look.

759
00:36:35.590 --> 00:36:37.030
We don't want to see the low point.

760
00:36:37.030 --> 00:36:38.290
We don't want to talk about it.

761
00:36:38.470 --> 00:36:42.370
We want to defend, deny, sweep it under the rug, prop ourselves up,

762
00:36:42.370 --> 00:36:45.010
slap a little makeup on it, whatever the case might be.

763
00:36:45.280 --> 00:36:46.870
We are afraid to hit bottom.

764
00:36:47.440 --> 00:36:50.980
So we do what ever we have to do, just not to hit the bottom.

765
00:36:51.010 --> 00:36:56.350
But friends, all we're doing when we do that is we're stealing from ourselves

766
00:36:56.350 --> 00:36:59.260
the very best change point we could ever have.

767
00:36:59.890 --> 00:37:02.830
The lowest point is always the best change point.

768
00:37:02.830 --> 00:37:06.490
But we don't want to go there because what is waiting there for us,

769
00:37:06.490 --> 00:37:09.430
it often looks like a death and we're afraid of those deaths.

770
00:37:09.460 --> 00:37:13.360
We don't want the death of our job, our relationship, our marriage,

771
00:37:13.630 --> 00:37:17.980
our self-respect, whatever death is waiting there, we just don't want it.

772
00:37:18.040 --> 00:37:19.780
But Jesus says something different.

773
00:37:20.530 --> 00:37:23.380
He says something completely crazy about death.

774
00:37:23.650 --> 00:37:27.910
Jesus says that we don't have to be afraid of death, death of any kind.

775
00:37:27.940 --> 00:37:31.750
And the reason we don't have to be afraid
is because of what he did on the cross.

776
00:37:33.010 --> 00:37:35.590
Friends, the cross, it looked really bad for him.

777
00:37:36.160 --> 00:37:41.410
It looks so bad at the cross for three days, it looked like game over.

778
00:37:42.010 --> 00:37:43.310
Everyone went home.

779
00:37:43.990 --> 00:37:48.370
And what we didn't know is that at that low point, something was rumbling.

780
00:37:48.370 --> 00:37:49.930
The momentum was shifting.

781
00:37:50.590 --> 00:37:56.330
1 Corinthians 15 actually describes what happened at the cross at his death.

782
00:37:57.520 --> 00:37:58.540
1 Corinthians 15 says:

783
00:38:02.830 --> 00:38:05.080
And the writer goes on to taunt death, saying:

784
00:38:08.260 --> 00:38:11.740
Death means something completely different because of the cross.

785
00:38:11.980 --> 00:38:14.020
See? Jesus did not just die.

786
00:38:15.330 --> 00:38:19.720
And after three days, he got up in an empty tomb and he walked out,

787
00:38:19.960 --> 00:38:22.360
roaring back to the greatest comeback

788
00:38:22.480 --> 00:38:24.820
that will ever be mounted in human history.

789
00:38:24.820 --> 00:38:25.090
[applause]

790
00:38:25.090 --> 00:38:30.610
The resurrection of Jesus Christ told us that the cross,

791
00:38:30.940 --> 00:38:35.500
the lowest of low, became the change point for his comeback victory.

792
00:38:36.470 --> 00:38:40.930
And the same can be true for you and I, with him at our low,

793
00:38:41.560 --> 00:38:42.820
becomes our change point.

794
00:38:43.660 --> 00:38:44.770
I don't want you to run.

795
00:38:44.830 --> 00:38:46.410
I don't want you to keep yourself from it.

796
00:38:46.450 --> 00:38:48.700
I want you to go straight through it with him and say,

797
00:38:48.700 --> 00:38:50.890
"Where O death is your victory?"

798
00:38:50.890 --> 00:38:52.810
Today I wanted to make it personal.

799
00:38:53.020 --> 00:38:55.450
I wanted to say where O divorce is your victory?

800
00:38:55.450 --> 00:38:57.640
Where O infertility is your victory?

801
00:38:57.640 --> 00:38:59.640
Where O F is your victory?

802
00:38:59.650 --> 00:39:03.890
None of these things have victory over you in Christ,

803
00:39:03.920 --> 00:39:07.100
they're just the change points for your comeback.

804
00:39:07.130 --> 00:39:09.620
If everybody says game over, fine.

805
00:39:10.760 --> 00:39:12.720
Jesus is about to do something special.

806
00:39:12.720 --> 00:39:13.040
[whistle] [cheers & applause]

807
00:39:16.040 --> 00:39:17.910
- Wow, what a strong quarter.

808
00:39:17.910 --> 00:39:19.420
- Touchdown Team Mingo.

809
00:39:23.240 --> 00:39:25.460
Alli, you were awarded six points for a great message,

810
00:39:25.460 --> 00:39:27.870
plus two PPs.

811
00:39:27.870 --> 00:39:28.910
- Gotta love the PPs.

812
00:39:28.910 --> 00:39:31.730
- Plus three for a great usage of a random phrase.

813
00:39:34.940 --> 00:39:36.330
Would you like to go for the extra bonus point?

814
00:39:36.520 --> 00:39:37.910
- I might as well, I'm on a roll.

815
00:39:38.700 --> 00:39:44.550
- Your legit Bible question is: Peter was the disciple

816
00:39:44.550 --> 00:39:46.890
that Jesus called out of the boat during a storm

817
00:39:46.890 --> 00:39:49.050
to learn how to walk on water and meet him.

818
00:39:49.710 --> 00:39:51.770
In what year did I learn how to swim?

819
00:39:51.770 --> 00:39:51.990
[laughter]

820
00:39:56.500 --> 00:39:58.500
- I'm going to go 1989.

821
00:39:58.500 --> 00:40:00.250
- Oh , so close.

822
00:40:00.910 --> 00:40:02.860
1991, so close.

823
00:40:03.520 --> 00:40:05.680
So you did not make -- - That Bible trivia gets you every time.

824
00:40:06.060 --> 00:40:11.950
- It really does. So that means you have a final first half score of

825
00:40:11.950 --> 00:40:15.170
Team Mingo 11, Team Tome 9.

826
00:40:15.490 --> 00:40:16.840
That's the end of the first act.

827
00:40:20.250 --> 00:40:23.110
- Oh, Castleman really showing his weak spots today.

828
00:40:23.140 --> 00:40:26.080
I've got to tell you, man, all that glitters is gold.

829
00:40:26.440 --> 00:40:30.250
The belly dancing shoes are making a lot more sense now on Alli Patterson.

830
00:40:30.340 --> 00:40:32.890
- They really are. But man, strong quarter by Alli.

831
00:40:32.920 --> 00:40:36.910
I mean, my goodness, strong Mahomes throughline, great use of the phrase,

832
00:40:36.910 --> 00:40:38.470
shared her personal low point.

833
00:40:39.440 --> 00:40:41.470
11 - 9, I mean, let's see where it goes in the second half.

834
00:40:41.590 --> 00:40:43.540
- That's right. We've got a whole lot of game ahead.

835
00:40:43.570 --> 00:40:45.710
But first, another commercial break.

836
00:40:53.300 --> 00:40:56.450
- We know you love McDonald's because it's amazing.

837
00:40:57.170 --> 00:41:01.010
Problem is, nobody wants to actually admit they love it.

838
00:41:01.940 --> 00:41:06.260
Introducing new McSmuggler meals, the same McDonald's food you love

839
00:41:06.380 --> 00:41:09.380
delivered in a discreet, more socially acceptable container.

840
00:41:11.540 --> 00:41:13.980
- Can I get a McSmuggler?

841
00:41:13.980 --> 00:41:16.490
It's the same super-sized goodness,

842
00:41:16.490 --> 00:41:19.130
but they hide it in a Whole Foods bag.

843
00:41:19.640 --> 00:41:23.480
No more judging looks from Becky, like her life's so perfect.

844
00:41:23.910 --> 00:41:26.720
- Man, nothing beats a smoothie after a big workout.

845
00:41:27.080 --> 00:41:29.900
Well, that's what I tell my trainer at least.

846
00:41:30.530 --> 00:41:34.460
- If my boss knew how many Filet-O-Fishes I eat, I would definitely be fired.

847
00:41:36.520 --> 00:41:39.740
- Oh!

848
00:41:39.740 --> 00:41:39.930
- My bad, man.

849
00:41:45.210 --> 00:41:48.300
- New McSmuggler meals, might as well hide it.

850
00:41:51.770 --> 00:41:54.570
(singing) Ba, ba, ba, ba, I'm Smuggling.

851
00:41:58.640 --> 00:42:00.410
- You just want to watch something, right?

852
00:42:00.650 --> 00:42:02.360
It shouldn't be this hard.

853
00:42:02.960 --> 00:42:07.800
Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Roku, every streaming service has its own lineup,

854
00:42:07.800 --> 00:42:10.370
of its own password, and its own fee.

855
00:42:10.730 --> 00:42:14.540
Subscribe to all these and you're shelling out $150 a month or more.

856
00:42:15.110 --> 00:42:16.820
It's time for something better.

857
00:42:17.210 --> 00:42:22.010
What you need is complete access to a brilliant library of entertainment.

858
00:42:22.370 --> 00:42:24.590
It's the newest innovation in home entertainment.

859
00:42:24.860 --> 00:42:29.630
Cable is everything you want, hardwired onto a physical cable

860
00:42:30.080 --> 00:42:30.800
straight into your home.

861
00:42:31.250 --> 00:42:35.060
It's like Disney plus, bBut for all the stuff you want that isn't on Disney.

862
00:42:35.450 --> 00:42:37.070
No more unreliable streaming.

863
00:42:37.400 --> 00:42:38.690
No need for a Wi-Fi.

864
00:42:39.110 --> 00:42:41.900
No more wondering what service has what you want.

865
00:42:42.230 --> 00:42:43.370
It's all right here.

866
00:42:43.520 --> 00:42:44.990
Get cable today.

867
00:42:45.550 --> 00:42:48.100
Act now and get a free cell phone that attaches to your wall.

868
00:42:53.130 --> 00:42:56.640
- Ok. No peeking. - I hate surprises, you know, I hate surprises.

869
00:42:56.820 --> 00:42:57.930
- I know, you're gonna love this.

870
00:42:58.350 --> 00:42:59.940
OK. Ready? Open your eyes.

871
00:43:01.110 --> 00:43:02.570
Do you love it? - Yes.

872
00:43:02.570 --> 00:43:02.990
Peloton.

873
00:43:03.270 --> 00:43:04.770
- It's exactly what you wanted.

874
00:43:06.390 --> 00:43:07.410
- Woo-hoo, New Year. New me. - Yeah.

875
00:43:08.140 --> 00:43:10.050
- I'm gonna spend the whole afternoon setting it up.

876
00:43:10.180 --> 00:43:11.160
I'm sure there's some assembly.

877
00:43:18.420 --> 00:43:19.700
All right. Day one.

878
00:43:20.040 --> 00:43:21.000
New Year, new me.

879
00:43:26.190 --> 00:43:29.210
- Shake it out. I'm waking you up today, right.

880
00:43:29.210 --> 00:43:29.680
Roll those shoulders.

881
00:43:43.050 --> 00:43:44.520
- Honey, come in here.

882
00:43:44.880 --> 00:43:46.740
I think I'm starting get the hang of this thing.

883
00:43:47.450 --> 00:43:48.600
That is so great.

884
00:43:48.780 --> 00:43:50.160
By the way, I found this behind the couch.

885
00:43:50.210 --> 00:43:50.940
Did you need this?

886
00:43:51.610 --> 00:43:53.040
- Is that a seat?

887
00:44:03.120 --> 00:44:03.870
- Slow burn, it is slow burn.

888
00:44:05.580 --> 00:44:06.990
- Oh, yes.

889
00:44:06.990 --> 00:44:10.740
You know, we're going to have our halftime show.

890
00:44:10.770 --> 00:44:13.230
In our halftime show we want to enjoy really good music.

891
00:44:13.240 --> 00:44:16.670
And we also want to enjoy seeing people who've had a comeback.

892
00:44:16.770 --> 00:44:20.070
There's a bunch of people who are part of Crossroads who've had a comeback,

893
00:44:20.220 --> 00:44:23.490
whose life was going one direction, and it came and went another direction.

894
00:44:23.730 --> 00:44:27.240
And one of the ways this happens isn't just by sitting in a dark room

895
00:44:27.240 --> 00:44:29.220
and hearing something that could be pretty good.

896
00:44:29.280 --> 00:44:32.100
But getting outside, going to a GO Trip,

897
00:44:32.400 --> 00:44:35.850
going someplace outside of your comfort zone and serving somebody else

898
00:44:35.850 --> 00:44:39.960
or or going to a camp: man camp, woman camp, couples camp, college camp.

899
00:44:39.990 --> 00:44:40.980
Any of those things.

900
00:44:40.980 --> 00:44:43.950
And so while we enjoy some great music, we're also going to hear some stories

901
00:44:43.950 --> 00:44:47.790
of people who can tell their story about how they've made a comeback to win.

902
00:44:48.060 --> 00:44:51.570
We think there's a bunch of new people that may be with us this weekend

903
00:44:51.780 --> 00:44:53.910
that you could have a story like this next year.

904
00:45:21.770 --> 00:45:22.190
- Hello.

905
00:45:44.520 --> 00:45:44.910
[music: We Were Born to be Champions]

906
00:47:23.400 --> 00:47:27.960
- I love Crossroads because they put a Crossroads right on the edge of campus

907
00:47:28.250 --> 00:47:32.190
to connect college students with other college students

908
00:47:32.190 --> 00:47:33.280
who are trying to grow in their faith right here.

909
00:47:34.080 --> 00:47:35.280
- I feel like I always have a home.

910
00:47:35.700 --> 00:47:38.520
I grew up in Cincinnati and then moved to Lexington

911
00:47:38.520 --> 00:47:40.160
and now I'm living in Louisville.

912
00:47:40.160 --> 00:47:41.820
I've been a part of Crossroads

913
00:47:41.910 --> 00:47:46.810
Oakley, East Side Andover, downtown Lex, and now Crossroads Anywhere.

914
00:47:47.200 --> 00:47:50.220
And I love that wherever I go, Crossroads can come too.

915
00:47:50.250 --> 00:47:52.890
So I feel like I always have a home that I can come back to

916
00:47:52.920 --> 00:47:54.420
every weekend no matter where I am.

917
00:47:54.680 --> 00:47:57.690
- Being involved and Crossroads has led to a great chain of events,

918
00:47:57.690 --> 00:48:01.590
starting with a woman camp which led to me going to go South Africa,

919
00:48:01.980 --> 00:48:03.540
which led to me starting a Journey Group,

920
00:48:03.930 --> 00:48:05.670
which led to me starting a small group

921
00:48:05.940 --> 00:48:08.040
which led to me finding new career paths and job.

922
00:48:08.520 --> 00:48:10.390
There's a place for everybody there.

923
00:48:10.390 --> 00:48:11.250
It doesn't matter if you're for black, white, blotchy.

924
00:48:11.250 --> 00:48:11.260
They just welcome you with open arms.

925
00:48:42.890 --> 00:48:46.080
- One thing I love about being part of Crossroads Church is

926
00:48:46.790 --> 00:48:50.450
I love how you can always find new people and form new friendships and bonds

927
00:48:50.550 --> 00:48:53.900
and have this sense of community and learn more about the love of God.

928
00:48:54.260 --> 00:48:55.790
- We put our money where our mouth is.

929
00:48:56.170 --> 00:48:59.660
We invest millions of dollars locally and globally,

930
00:48:59.660 --> 00:49:00.950
tackling some of the biggest problems in the world.

931
00:49:01.120 --> 00:49:05.210
- And I'm so glad to be a part of a community that has heart like God's,

932
00:49:05.210 --> 00:49:08.840
to run after racial reconciliation, to heal the racial divide.

933
00:49:09.170 --> 00:49:11.480
- I can come here and hear God's word while being in a community

934
00:49:11.480 --> 00:49:14.810
of people who are trying to make a difference, understand who God is,

935
00:49:14.810 --> 00:49:17.530
why he's so great, why he loves us, and the life change

936
00:49:17.540 --> 00:49:19.820
that can happen when we trust him and follow his plan.

937
00:49:20.320 --> 00:49:24.450
- Since I started coming to Crossroads, it has brought so much joy in my life.

938
00:49:25.220 --> 00:49:29.390
I wish I had found Crossroads a long time ago when I was younger,

939
00:49:29.390 --> 00:49:30.610
but it's never too late.

940
00:49:58.970 --> 00:49:59.210
[music: Higher Love]

941
00:53:46.890 --> 00:53:50.310
- I really hope that so far you have laughed, you've had fun,

942
00:53:50.400 --> 00:53:52.650
and you've experienced something meaningful

943
00:53:52.830 --> 00:53:54.960
because all of that is important for us today.

944
00:53:55.050 --> 00:53:57.600
- You know, that's right. We created this whole Super Bowl thing,

945
00:53:57.750 --> 00:54:01.020
because we wanted to reach people who wouldn't normally watch church.

946
00:54:01.250 --> 00:54:03.970
And we've seen two teams go back and forth, we've seen some trash talking,

947
00:54:03.970 --> 00:54:05.850
and we saw some really funny and fun moments.

948
00:54:06.060 --> 00:54:08.580
But the reality is we're one team at Crossroads

949
00:54:08.580 --> 00:54:10.530
and we're all headed the same direction around here.

950
00:54:10.680 --> 00:54:14.910
- Yeah. One of the things that we do as a team is we encourage each other,

951
00:54:14.910 --> 00:54:17.550
we challenge each other and we want to come together

952
00:54:17.550 --> 00:54:21.360
so that God can use us collectively to do really big things.

953
00:54:21.450 --> 00:54:25.080
- That's right. One of the biggest ways we do that on team around here

954
00:54:25.080 --> 00:54:28.860
is we push each other to ensure that our hearts are always in line

955
00:54:28.860 --> 00:54:32.280
with where God is going and not where the world might be going,

956
00:54:32.280 --> 00:54:34.650
where culture might be going, but where Jesus is going.

957
00:54:34.650 --> 00:54:37.800
And Jesus said the primary way that that happens with our money.

958
00:54:38.120 --> 00:54:42.810
- Yeah, he says that he knows where our heart is based on where our money is.

959
00:54:42.810 --> 00:54:45.720
And so right now we have an opportunity to actually tell God

960
00:54:45.960 --> 00:54:49.440
that our heart is with him and put our money there, too.

961
00:54:49.440 --> 00:54:53.790
And so if you want to be generous, you want to be on the team,

962
00:54:53.790 --> 00:54:56.510
you could do that by heading to Crossroads.net/give.

963
00:54:56.610 --> 00:54:59.370
- That's right. If you're new around here, don't feel pressured.

964
00:54:59.490 --> 00:55:03.540
We're just about this because we have seen God show up in our lives

965
00:55:03.540 --> 00:55:05.520
in incredible ways and we want to continue to show him

966
00:55:05.520 --> 00:55:07.200
that we're in line with where he's going.

967
00:55:07.490 --> 00:55:10.620
- Yep. And so as we do this, he's going to use that

968
00:55:10.620 --> 00:55:12.840
to change our family, our friends, our neighborhoods,

969
00:55:12.840 --> 00:55:17.610
our workplaces, our schools, all of the things, because he's saying,

970
00:55:17.700 --> 00:55:21.360
"I want to honor the fact that you've put me first in your money."

971
00:55:21.390 --> 00:55:23.400
And so crossroads.net/give

972
00:55:23.430 --> 00:55:26.040
is the way to do that if you're on the team here.

973
00:55:26.100 --> 00:55:30.030
But as we do that, we want you to have a few more words from our sponsors.

974
00:55:32.230 --> 00:55:35.290
- I love delivery services.

975
00:55:35.290 --> 00:55:38.590
With my busy lifestyle I need services like Amazon Prime,

976
00:55:38.830 --> 00:55:41.320
Door Dash, and Uber Eats to keep me on the go.

977
00:55:42.050 --> 00:55:46.540
Problem is, who's there to pick up so I can go?

978
00:55:46.540 --> 00:55:48.880
And that's why I love Door Trash.

979
00:55:49.330 --> 00:55:53.290
Door Trash connects you to a vast network of un-delivering specialists

980
00:55:53.290 --> 00:55:56.260
that come to your door and pick up your trash.

981
00:55:56.590 --> 00:55:58.480
- Un-delivery? What?

982
00:55:59.050 --> 00:56:00.010
This is a garbage company.

983
00:56:00.010 --> 00:56:02.380
I'm a garbage man. We just have an app.

984
00:56:03.040 --> 00:56:06.490
- It's like magic. You just download the app, pay the monthly fee,

985
00:56:06.790 --> 00:56:10.720
gather your trash, and wallah, all the garbage in your life is gone.

986
00:56:12.100 --> 00:56:13.180
- Garbage man.

987
00:56:13.420 --> 00:56:14.530
This is garbage.

988
00:56:15.010 --> 00:56:17.230
I'm a man. Garbage man.

989
00:56:17.710 --> 00:56:22.480
- What makes Door Trash unique isn't just about what they do, but who they are.

990
00:56:23.040 --> 00:56:27.880
- Garbage app, garbage company, garbage man.

991
00:56:33.780 --> 00:56:35.020
(TV) full day of the impeachment--

992
00:56:35.030 --> 00:56:39.280
(TOME) November is coming. That means our news feeds

993
00:56:39.280 --> 00:56:42.670
and our family gatherings are about to be hijacked

994
00:56:42.670 --> 00:56:45.640
by political pundits pushing their agendas.

995
00:56:46.540 --> 00:56:49.050
Is your anxiety growing yet?

996
00:56:50.140 --> 00:56:51.880
Do you find yourself asking the question:

997
00:56:52.180 --> 00:56:55.570
should I be as angry as everyone else seems?

998
00:56:56.650 --> 00:56:59.310
Are you fed up with the rhetoric already?

999
00:57:02.110 --> 00:57:02.460
- (indiscernible) Are you kidding me?

1000
00:57:02.460 --> 00:57:04.300
(TOME) Election season is coming, don't panic.

1001
00:57:04.630 --> 00:57:05.500
You've got this.

1002
00:57:05.500 --> 00:57:07.120
Together we've

1003
00:57:07.330 --> 00:57:11.350
got this. We can rise above the rhetoric, push through the pandemonium

1004
00:57:11.350 --> 00:57:14.860
and clear out the noise to move forward together.

1005
00:57:15.800 --> 00:57:17.800
Some of you are gonna hate this.

1006
00:57:18.570 --> 00:57:21.550
You can get through this year with less anxiety

1007
00:57:21.610 --> 00:57:23.860
and you can leave this election cycle with confidence

1008
00:57:23.860 --> 00:57:25.720
that the future is going to be good.

1009
00:57:26.230 --> 00:57:29.290
Not because the issues aren't real, but because there is a better way

1010
00:57:29.290 --> 00:57:31.300
that always leads to life.

1011
00:57:31.840 --> 00:57:33.670
Yes, we're going there.

1012
00:57:39.530 --> 00:57:41.660
- After a hard day's work, there's nothing I love more

1013
00:57:41.660 --> 00:57:43.280
than a good old, fresh squeezed Pepsi.

1014
00:57:43.490 --> 00:57:44.980
But you know what I love more than Pepsi?

1015
00:57:45.250 --> 00:57:47.210
This brand new Pepsi with Extra Pulp.

1016
00:57:52.490 --> 00:57:54.790
Kind of minty.

1017
00:57:54.790 --> 00:57:59.010
- Dude, that's my dip spit.

1018
00:58:01.240 --> 00:58:03.880
- It's OK, man. It's OK. Everybody's had a little bit of dip before.

1019
00:58:04.810 --> 00:58:05.950
- Pepsi with Extra Pulp.

1020
00:58:07.270 --> 00:58:08.500
This product does not exist.

1021
00:58:08.830 --> 00:58:09.370
Don't drink it.

1022
00:58:12.400 --> 00:58:13.790
- Can somebody get this man a Coke?

1023
00:58:17.980 --> 00:58:20.740
- I love it. Do you have a favorite commercial?

1024
00:58:20.770 --> 00:58:21.790
- The more you know.

1025
00:58:21.790 --> 00:58:24.090
Man, that dip spit Pepsi pulp is pretty funny.

1026
00:58:24.250 --> 00:58:25.710
- He said, "Oh, minty fresh."

1027
00:58:26.890 --> 00:58:27.820
Oh, my goodness.

1028
00:58:27.900 --> 00:58:30.160
Well, hey, we got a whole second half to get to.

1029
00:58:30.400 --> 00:58:32.110
So let's throw it back down to the field.

1030
00:58:36.760 --> 00:58:39.310
- Team Mingo, you will have possession of the Bible for the third quarter.

1031
00:58:39.370 --> 00:58:40.930
Please choose your random phrase.

1032
00:58:41.590 --> 00:58:44.560
Your random phrase is: And because of that,

1033
00:58:44.620 --> 00:58:47.890
Denny's now offers a combo called The Mighty Mingo.

1034
00:58:49.810 --> 00:58:53.520
- Greg, that is a super long phrase and I'm really not sure

1035
00:58:54.070 --> 00:58:54.470
he's going to be able to fit that in. We'll see.

1036
00:58:56.770 --> 00:59:00.070
- All right. Hey, if you want to make a comeback in your life,

1037
00:59:00.280 --> 00:59:02.780
you must embrace correction.

1038
00:59:03.130 --> 00:59:05.260
Here's my prediction for the Super Bowl at halftime.

1039
00:59:05.380 --> 00:59:07.330
There's gonna be a coach who's going to put his finger

1040
00:59:07.330 --> 00:59:10.510
in the face of a player and say, "If we're gonna make a comeback,

1041
00:59:10.660 --> 00:59:12.940
I need you to get better."

1042
00:59:13.360 --> 00:59:15.250
It's gonna happen in front of the entire team.

1043
00:59:15.670 --> 00:59:18.870
Can you imagine what that would be like to be called out in front of everybody,

1044
00:59:18.880 --> 00:59:20.170
corrected in front of everyone?

1045
00:59:20.170 --> 00:59:21.100
Can you imagine?

1046
00:59:21.850 --> 00:59:25.450
I don't have to imagine because that happened to me just a few months ago.

1047
00:59:25.690 --> 00:59:29.800
I was on stage training our entire staff, employees from all 13 sites,

1048
00:59:29.980 --> 00:59:34.720
when this guy, my CEO, decided it was the right time to walk on stage

1049
00:59:34.720 --> 00:59:37.900
and correct my public speaking skills in front of everyone.

1050
00:59:39.220 --> 00:59:40.630
Let's watch the beautiful moment together.

1051
00:59:41.950 --> 00:59:45.430
- Both of you are gonna be able to keep this $20

1052
00:59:45.910 --> 00:59:48.160
if neither one of you the rest of the time you talk, say Um.

1053
00:59:52.040 --> 00:59:54.800
- How about Uh?

1054
00:59:54.800 --> 00:59:56.420
I said Uh, I asked you a question.

1055
00:59:56.420 --> 00:59:57.230
- That was a question.

1056
00:59:57.230 --> 00:59:58.280
That was clarification.

1057
01:00:00.530 --> 01:00:02.060
Now I'm self-conscious, I don't know about you.

1058
01:00:02.060 --> 01:00:02.290
It's so weird.

1059
01:00:03.420 --> 01:00:04.720
- I know. I'm not going to do this anymore.-

1060
01:00:04.720 --> 01:00:05.160
It's so weird.

1061
01:00:08.650 --> 01:00:10.120
- No, I didn't get the $20.

1062
01:00:12.720 --> 01:00:16.840
When that happens to you in that moment, what do you feel

1063
01:00:16.840 --> 01:00:19.960
when someone gives you the the opportunity for improvement

1064
01:00:19.960 --> 01:00:21.200
you weren't really asking for?

1065
01:00:21.200 --> 01:00:23.290
You know, what do you feel inside?

1066
01:00:24.550 --> 01:00:25.650
Do you feel like, "Yes.

1067
01:00:25.810 --> 01:00:26.880
That's awesome. Thank you.

1068
01:00:26.950 --> 01:00:28.210
I was hoping you were going to correct me.

1069
01:00:28.240 --> 01:00:29.680
That's what I wanted. Great."

1070
01:00:32.310 --> 01:00:32.400
TOME: You haven't done it since. I've not heard you say uh or um since that day.

1071
01:00:33.340 --> 01:00:34.380
- Thank you. Thank you.

1072
01:00:34.390 --> 01:00:34.920
Thank you. -

1073
01:00:34.920 --> 01:00:36.220
Let's give it up for Kyle right there, improvements.

1074
01:00:37.300 --> 01:00:39.570
How about some points?

1075
01:00:40.720 --> 01:00:42.660
- This is an interesting love fest going on.

1076
01:00:42.940 --> 01:00:45.880
And this explains why Brian and Kyle have matching sneakers.

1077
01:00:46.120 --> 01:00:47.730
- That's a really good point.

1078
01:00:48.250 --> 01:00:52.090
- No, it's because I wandered into the senior citizen
section on accident and I got the same ones.

1079
01:00:52.220 --> 01:00:54.090
- Oh, gloves off.

1080
01:00:54.090 --> 01:00:55.680
- I know it's embarrassing.

1081
01:00:55.690 --> 01:00:56.290
I shouldn't have done it. [whistle]

1082
01:00:59.550 --> 01:01:03.160
- He drew a flag. - Pastoral foul, roughing the Pastor.

1083
01:01:03.520 --> 01:01:07.770
There will be a three point penalty assessed at the end of this quarter.

1084
01:01:07.770 --> 01:01:07.780
- Could've seen that coming, Chuck. - Yeah.

1085
01:01:08.420 --> 01:01:08.680
- Whatever?

1086
01:01:10.540 --> 01:01:13.420
When correction comes your way, you're not excited, are you?

1087
01:01:14.810 --> 01:01:17.240
You're not. You probably feel what normal human beings feel.

1088
01:01:17.300 --> 01:01:22.220
You probably feel embarrassed or defensive or even defeated.

1089
01:01:22.940 --> 01:01:27.200
And that makes sense. It does, because most of us walk around starving.

1090
01:01:27.770 --> 01:01:29.840
And because of that, Denny's now offers a combo

1091
01:01:29.840 --> 01:01:32.470
called The Mighty Mango that you might want to check out.

1092
01:01:32.560 --> 01:01:33.670
It's $5.99, coffee, two eggs.

1093
01:01:35.870 --> 01:01:37.190
- That was incredible.

1094
01:01:37.510 --> 01:01:38.050
- You're gonna love it.

1095
01:01:38.640 --> 01:01:39.740
- That was a rough phrase.

1096
01:01:39.770 --> 01:01:41.060
- That's worth bonus points right there.

1097
01:01:41.460 --> 01:01:43.610
- We are, we're starving.

1098
01:01:43.670 --> 01:01:45.050
We're not starving for food.

1099
01:01:45.050 --> 01:01:48.040
We're starving for validation because we have this question in us:

1100
01:01:48.320 --> 01:01:50.090
Am I good enough?

1101
01:01:50.420 --> 01:01:51.950
And when correction comes our way,

1102
01:01:51.950 --> 01:01:55.280
it feels crushing because it confirms our very worst fear:

1103
01:01:55.670 --> 01:01:58.220
I'm not good enough.

1104
01:01:58.490 --> 01:02:01.490
And when that happens, everything in us wants to spit that correction out,

1105
01:02:01.490 --> 01:02:01.910
doesn't it?

1106
01:02:02.300 --> 01:02:04.100
This is why they invented the C sandwich:

1107
01:02:04.270 --> 01:02:05.720
Complement. Correction.

1108
01:02:05.860 --> 01:02:06.400
Compliment.

1109
01:02:06.590 --> 01:02:08.480
You go like. Girl, I love your bangs.

1110
01:02:08.540 --> 01:02:10.880
Also, you're a terrible mom, and your shoes are so cute.

1111
01:02:11.960 --> 01:02:13.300
That's how you do it. Now, you know.

1112
01:02:13.940 --> 01:02:15.050
But it doesn't work.

1113
01:02:15.410 --> 01:02:17.900
It doesn't work because we're not dogs, are we?

1114
01:02:18.020 --> 01:02:20.900
You can't just shove the pill into a hot dog and expect us to swallow whole.

1115
01:02:21.020 --> 01:02:21.740
It doesn't work that

1116
01:02:21.740 --> 01:02:23.330
way. We taste the pill.

1117
01:02:23.420 --> 01:02:25.620
The pill tastes bad. Everything says spit out.

1118
01:02:26.700 --> 01:02:32.360
But Jesus, but Jesus says something radically different.

1119
01:02:32.870 --> 01:02:36.410
Jesus says, listen, I have made you good enough.

1120
01:02:36.620 --> 01:02:39.020
Now it's time to get better.

1121
01:02:39.740 --> 01:02:40.780
Good enough is the gospel.

1122
01:02:40.790 --> 01:02:43.160
This is the news that no matter what you've done, who you are,

1123
01:02:43.160 --> 01:02:45.440
what's in your past, Jesus wipes away all of it.

1124
01:02:45.620 --> 01:02:49.790
And he takes out his permanent marker it over you He writes, good enough.

1125
01:02:50.930 --> 01:02:51.980
Nothing can take it away.

1126
01:02:52.520 --> 01:02:53.030
Nothing. [applause]

1127
01:02:54.520 --> 01:02:55.970
Hebrews 10 puts it this way:

1128
01:03:01.520 --> 01:03:02.990
Not the C sandwich,

1129
01:03:02.990 --> 01:03:05.920
it's the PH sandwich, the perfect and holy sandwich.

1130
01:03:05.930 --> 01:03:08.300
Did you hear it? Made perfect, past tense.

1131
01:03:08.340 --> 01:03:09.200
Done forever.

1132
01:03:09.260 --> 01:03:12.350
And yet being right now made holy.

1133
01:03:12.350 --> 01:03:14.340
That means getting better.

1134
01:03:14.350 --> 01:03:15.620
It's the PH sandwich.

1135
01:03:15.950 --> 01:03:19.310
There's a time in my life when Brian, if he'd give me that correction,

1136
01:03:19.310 --> 01:03:20.730
it would have crushed me. It really would've.

1137
01:03:21.050 --> 01:03:23.780
It was a time when I was looking for everybody to validate me.

1138
01:03:23.780 --> 01:03:26.000
Am I good enough, smart enough, funny enough, creative enough,

1139
01:03:26.230 --> 01:03:27.980
a good enough leader, am I enough?

1140
01:03:28.510 --> 01:03:29.870
But I got off that hamster wheel.

1141
01:03:30.640 --> 01:03:33.950
I got off that hamster wheel when I decided to do this thing

1142
01:03:33.950 --> 01:03:35.270
that has changed my life.

1143
01:03:35.300 --> 01:03:37.760
And I'm telling you, it can change yours too.

1144
01:03:37.760 --> 01:03:41.750
See I decided to act as if what the Bible said were true,

1145
01:03:41.990 --> 01:03:44.690
that when Jesus says I'm good enough, it's enough.

1146
01:03:44.900 --> 01:03:45.650
I am.

1147
01:03:45.890 --> 01:03:48.590
Listen to me. If you believe in Jesus, I have good news for you:

1148
01:03:48.770 --> 01:03:51.050
You're good enough. You're good enough.

1149
01:03:51.380 --> 01:03:53.420
Now it's time to get better.

1150
01:03:54.140 --> 01:03:56.600
And the way you get better is you embrace correction,

1151
01:03:56.600 --> 01:03:57.980
which is different in condemnation.

1152
01:03:58.190 --> 01:04:00.860
Condemnation is pointing out problems to cut you down.

1153
01:04:01.370 --> 01:04:04.070
Correction is pointing out problems to build you up.

1154
01:04:04.480 --> 01:04:07.160
And did you know if you believe in Jesus, the Bible says:

1155
01:04:07.340 --> 01:04:09.020
God will never condemn you.

1156
01:04:09.500 --> 01:04:11.210
He says that in Romans 8:1:

1157
01:04:15.830 --> 01:04:19.190
None. He will never condemn you, but he will correct you.

1158
01:04:19.730 --> 01:04:21.200
He promises to correct you.

1159
01:04:21.620 --> 01:04:22.940
Listen to this in Proverbs 3:

1160
01:04:29.360 --> 01:04:32.540
Have you ever considered that the corrections coming your way,

1161
01:04:32.540 --> 01:04:35.390
they're not condemnation that you're not good enough.

1162
01:04:35.600 --> 01:04:37.580
They're evidence that God loves you.

1163
01:04:37.610 --> 01:04:38.640
He's correcting you.

1164
01:04:39.120 --> 01:04:42.440
You know, God must love me a lot because I get corrected all the time.

1165
01:04:43.190 --> 01:04:44.450
All the time. Not just by Brian.

1166
01:04:44.450 --> 01:04:46.040
My 6 year old daughter the other day, she said,

1167
01:04:46.400 --> 01:04:48.050
"Daddy, can you not yell so much?"

1168
01:04:49.040 --> 01:04:49.850
It's a correction.

1169
01:04:50.300 --> 01:04:53.240
My wife said, "Hey, you're being extra hard on Eli," our middle son.

1170
01:04:53.650 --> 01:04:54.380
It's a correction.

1171
01:04:54.770 --> 01:04:57.740
My boss told me, "Hey, the stuff online right now at Crossroads is fine.

1172
01:04:57.920 --> 01:04:59.060
It needs to get better."

1173
01:04:59.090 --> 01:05:00.230
That's a correction.

1174
01:05:00.590 --> 01:05:01.280
It's a correction.

1175
01:05:01.310 --> 01:05:03.830
Listen, I know correction is coming your way to.

1176
01:05:04.490 --> 01:05:05.840
Maybe not, maybe you didn't ask for it.

1177
01:05:05.870 --> 01:05:07.820
Maybe it's from your roommates, maybe it's from your spouse.

1178
01:05:08.030 --> 01:05:09.080
Maybe it's from a professor.

1179
01:05:09.260 --> 01:05:10.250
Maybe it's from a teacher.

1180
01:05:10.400 --> 01:05:12.240
Maybe it's from your employer.

1181
01:05:12.320 --> 01:05:13.470
Maybe it's from your employees.

1182
01:05:13.490 --> 01:05:14.810
Maybe it's your credit card statement.

1183
01:05:15.310 --> 01:05:15.660
OK?

1184
01:05:16.400 --> 01:05:17.840
Correction is coming your way.

1185
01:05:18.260 --> 01:05:19.840
And listen to me. Listen to me.

1186
01:05:19.850 --> 01:05:21.890
It's coming your way because God loves you.

1187
01:05:22.190 --> 01:05:23.930
He's saying to you, you're good enough.

1188
01:05:24.200 --> 01:05:26.120
Now it's time to get better.

1189
01:05:26.150 --> 01:05:27.440
Because he has -- I don't know if you know this,

1190
01:05:27.440 --> 01:05:30.620
he has better plans for your life than you have.

1191
01:05:31.010 --> 01:05:34.070
He has better plans for you than you can ever imagine,

1192
01:05:34.100 --> 01:05:37.880
because you are his plan A, and there is no plan B.

1193
01:05:38.180 --> 01:05:40.520
Did you know that? You are his plan A.

1194
01:05:40.760 --> 01:05:44.360
You're his plan A for raising confident world-changing kids.

1195
01:05:44.540 --> 01:05:46.070
There is no plan B.

1196
01:05:46.580 --> 01:05:50.240
You are his plan for bringing hope to the hopeless in your high school.

1197
01:05:50.250 --> 01:05:51.920
There is no plan B.

1198
01:05:51.990 --> 01:05:54.350
You are his plan A for finishing that degree

1199
01:05:54.560 --> 01:05:57.110
and changing the industry forever that he's called you to.

1200
01:05:57.120 --> 01:05:58.070
There's no plan B.

1201
01:05:58.160 --> 01:06:00.850
You're his plan A for ending the cycle of divorce

1202
01:06:00.860 --> 01:06:02.570
that has plagued your family for generations.

1203
01:06:02.750 --> 01:06:05.750
There is no plan B.

1204
01:06:05.960 --> 01:06:06.710
Listen to me.

1205
01:06:07.310 --> 01:06:10.100
God is looking you in the eyes and he's saying, "Hey, come here.

1206
01:06:10.130 --> 01:06:12.080
Come here. You're good enough.

1207
01:06:12.710 --> 01:06:13.640
You're good enough.

1208
01:06:14.030 --> 01:06:18.090
Now embrace my correction because it's time to get better."

1209
01:06:18.090 --> 01:06:18.100
[whistle] [cheers & applause]

1210
01:06:27.510 --> 01:06:29.910
- Kyle, you were awarded six points for a great message.

1211
01:06:29.940 --> 01:06:34.320
However, there was the roughing the pastor penalty for three points taken away.

1212
01:06:34.350 --> 01:06:37.170
But you did a great job with the random phrase, so there's three points back.

1213
01:06:37.410 --> 01:06:42.640
And you didn't say Um once, that's worth at least point for Team Mingo.

1214
01:06:42.810 --> 01:06:43.240
- Yeah! Ok.

1215
01:06:43.530 --> 01:06:46.930
- Would you like to go for the extra Bible trivia point?

1216
01:06:46.960 --> 01:06:50.700
- Of course. - Super legit official Bible trivia question.

1217
01:06:51.990 --> 01:06:54.990
Jesus lived his entire life in the Middle East.

1218
01:06:54.990 --> 01:06:57.780
According to the Guinness Book of World Records,

1219
01:06:57.780 --> 01:07:02.370
how big is the world's largest serving of hummus, within 5,000 pounds?

1220
01:07:04.530 --> 01:07:06.300
- What? Do you have any idea?

1221
01:07:06.820 --> 01:07:07.730
- Five seconds.

1222
01:07:07.760 --> 01:07:08.910
- What? You said to cheat.

1223
01:07:09.180 --> 01:07:09.750
It's fine.

1224
01:07:11.050 --> 01:07:12.010
- He did say that. He did say cheat.

1225
01:07:12.890 --> 01:07:15.490
- Can someone look it up on your phone real quick for me?

1226
01:07:15.490 --> 01:07:16.950
Just shout it out.

1227
01:07:17.190 --> 01:07:20.800
- Three, Two -- - Fifteen thousand.

1228
01:07:20.820 --> 01:07:22.780
- Fifteen thousand? You are not even close.

1229
01:07:22.780 --> 01:07:25.140
23,042 pounds.

1230
01:07:25.170 --> 01:07:25.320
(crosstalk)

1231
01:07:25.320 --> 01:07:33.660
- Math is hard. So that means resulting in an end of third quarter score.

1232
01:07:33.930 --> 01:07:37.580
Team Mingo 18, Team Tome 9.

1233
01:07:37.800 --> 01:07:38.850
That's the end of the third quarter.

1234
01:07:40.750 --> 01:07:43.640
- Man, Chuck, I thought Kyle packed so much energy in there.

1235
01:07:43.640 --> 01:07:44.690
The crowd was loving it.

1236
01:07:44.690 --> 01:07:45.770
What are your observations?

1237
01:07:45.780 --> 01:07:48.000
- They really were. I tell you what, I think Kyle and Alli

1238
01:07:48.000 --> 01:07:51.120
have demonstrated that they came to play and they came to win.

1239
01:07:51.410 --> 01:07:53.160
- Yeah, that's right. Well, we've got a fourth quarter,

1240
01:07:53.160 --> 01:07:55.420
but first I think you've got one more of those sponsorships.

1241
01:07:55.560 --> 01:07:56.700
- I love these sponsorships.

1242
01:07:56.730 --> 01:07:57.600
They're so fun for me.

1243
01:07:57.720 --> 01:08:01.480
Today's final quarter, friends, is brought to you by Apple Nose Pods.

1244
01:08:02.310 --> 01:08:04.950
Sleep apnea has never looked so good.

1245
01:08:05.250 --> 01:08:07.680
Sleep differently with Apple Nose Pods.

1246
01:08:08.040 --> 01:08:10.950
- That's weird, man. That is really --

1247
01:08:10.950 --> 01:08:10.960
I'm enjoying it, man. It's so good.

1248
01:08:12.150 --> 01:08:13.170
- Are you serious?

1249
01:08:14.370 --> 01:08:19.470
What are you seriously -- you seriously sold out that you're excited about that?

1250
01:08:19.860 --> 01:08:20.760
- What do you mean I sold out?

1251
01:08:21.300 --> 01:08:24.360
- I mean, you're using your voice to do stupid things behind a booth.

1252
01:08:24.390 --> 01:08:26.190
You've gotten all the game, you're a sell out.

1253
01:08:26.190 --> 01:08:26.730
Well, don't get me wrong.

1254
01:08:26.790 --> 01:08:27.690
I could preach right now.

1255
01:08:27.760 --> 01:08:30.180
- You could preach right now? - I can preach right now.

1256
01:08:31.040 --> 01:08:31.710
- Right now, like right now. [cheers] (indiscernible)

1257
01:08:33.550 --> 01:08:33.710
- You don't think I have it? You don't think I have it?

1258
01:08:36.150 --> 01:08:36.250
- I'd like to see it.

1259
01:08:36.250 --> 01:08:36.260
- I can preach! I can preach!

1260
01:08:44.780 --> 01:08:45.250
- Mingo drops to preach. This is monumental.

1261
01:08:47.660 --> 01:08:48.080
In 18 years we have never seen Mingo and Tome on the same team.

1262
01:08:52.200 --> 01:08:55.300
This is a dream team.

1263
01:08:55.300 --> 01:08:55.310
- Take a seat. - The JV. Time for the JV to sit down.

1264
01:08:55.310 --> 01:08:55.320
Get some water. water boy.

1265
01:09:02.360 --> 01:09:03.410
- Break it up, break it up.

1266
01:09:04.010 --> 01:09:04.440
- That's when I call H2O.

1267
01:09:05.780 --> 01:09:06.950
- Break it up, break it up.

1268
01:09:07.040 --> 01:09:08.720
- That's good. That's good. Come on.

1269
01:09:09.640 --> 01:09:11.250
- You don't even need this. You don't need this, do you?

1270
01:09:12.680 --> 01:09:14.150
I don't need this. I don't even need notes.

1271
01:09:14.150 --> 01:09:15.060
- No, you don't.

1272
01:09:15.080 --> 01:09:15.330
- Mingo preaching quarter four, no prep, no notes.

1273
01:09:18.220 --> 01:09:18.390
- Let's go teammates! [cheering]

1274
01:09:18.390 --> 01:09:18.760
- And the crowd goes wild.

1275
01:09:26.810 --> 01:09:29.930
- I haven't seen people this excited since Cats hit theaters.

1276
01:09:30.970 --> 01:09:32.600
Wow. Wow.

1277
01:09:32.990 --> 01:09:36.230
Please choose a random phrase and keep your clothes on.

1278
01:09:37.910 --> 01:09:42.530
Your random phrase is: Am I the only one who lives their life

1279
01:09:42.530 --> 01:09:44.480
according to Bon Jovi's Livin' on a Prayer.

1280
01:09:45.810 --> 01:09:46.460
- Ah, good tune.

1281
01:09:49.200 --> 01:09:52.280
- Man. Well, we've been talking about a comeback all day.

1282
01:09:52.280 --> 01:09:54.920
And I want you to know I believe you're here because

1283
01:09:54.920 --> 01:09:57.380
there's a comeback God wants to orchestrate in your life.

1284
01:09:57.710 --> 01:09:58.810
We talked about it today.

1285
01:09:58.820 --> 01:10:01.610
You heard Alli say that if you're going to have a comeback,

1286
01:10:01.820 --> 01:10:04.340
you're going to have to -- What did you talk about again?

1287
01:10:04.700 --> 01:10:05.900
I can't remember what your point was.

1288
01:10:06.380 --> 01:10:06.680
What was your point?

1289
01:10:08.030 --> 01:10:09.370
- Low point. - Low point.

1290
01:10:09.560 --> 01:10:12.410
I was actually I was just trying to cause
you to experience that low point right now.

1291
01:10:12.440 --> 01:10:12.690
- Uh-huh, that's good.

1292
01:10:12.690 --> 01:10:12.970
- No, your low point has to be your change point.

1293
01:10:15.740 --> 01:10:18.620
Powerful. Patrick Mahomes through line all throughout that.

1294
01:10:18.820 --> 01:10:20.540
Brian said you have to cheat the system.

1295
01:10:20.540 --> 01:10:23.030
Kyle said you have to embrace correction.

1296
01:10:23.160 --> 01:10:25.100
And I want to tell you, all of those are true.

1297
01:10:25.100 --> 01:10:27.770
And it starts with this: If you're going to make a comeback,

1298
01:10:27.800 --> 01:10:29.010
you've got to change your cadence.

1299
01:10:29.010 --> 01:10:29.330
[whistle]

1300
01:10:29.720 --> 01:10:31.040
There is something you have to do diff--

1301
01:10:31.640 --> 01:10:34.910
Yeah? Now, you can't go throwing around these terms,

1302
01:10:34.910 --> 01:10:39.110
sports terms like cadence, because there might be people here

1303
01:10:39.110 --> 01:10:40.040
who don't know what that means.

1304
01:10:40.070 --> 01:10:41.150
I know what that means, but.

1305
01:10:41.300 --> 01:10:43.130
- Well, what does it mean to you?

1306
01:10:43.180 --> 01:10:44.090
- Cadence? - Yes.

1307
01:10:44.300 --> 01:10:49.160
- That's the classic old sports term of classical dance move.

1308
01:10:51.420 --> 01:10:53.090
- Would you care to show us, Mr.

1309
01:10:53.150 --> 01:10:53.520
Referee? [cheers]

1310
01:10:58.200 --> 01:11:03.030
- This one's for you, West Side, it's a little jazz step, a little one of those.

1311
01:11:07.760 --> 01:11:09.860
- Disturbing to say the least.

1312
01:11:10.070 --> 01:11:11.460
- We're not worthy.

1313
01:11:11.460 --> 01:11:13.280
We're not worthy.

1314
01:11:13.280 --> 01:11:14.180
Oh, man.

1315
01:11:15.140 --> 01:11:19.160
So in the game, the Super Bowl, you're going to see play after play

1316
01:11:19.160 --> 01:11:21.260
the quarterback come up to the front, line up.

1317
01:11:21.260 --> 01:11:23.650
And they're gonna say something like 42 blue, 42 blue, hut, hut.

1318
01:11:24.380 --> 01:11:26.420
That's actually called the quarterback's cadence.

1319
01:11:26.840 --> 01:11:30.080
And you know this? Whichever team is playing from behind

1320
01:11:30.080 --> 01:11:34.010
or if they want a change in momentum, they're going to change that cadence.

1321
01:11:34.040 --> 01:11:35.840
Maybe they're going to come out in the second half

1322
01:11:35.840 --> 01:11:38.000
and there's gonna be a lot more shotgun passes.

1323
01:11:38.210 --> 01:11:39.770
Maybe they're gonna come out the second half

1324
01:11:39.860 --> 01:11:42.890
and are going to play a no huddle offense so they can get more plays through.

1325
01:11:42.890 --> 01:11:44.780
But they're gonna change something about their cadence

1326
01:11:44.960 --> 01:11:47.870
and the team that's able to change their cadence

1327
01:11:47.870 --> 01:11:49.640
always has the potential for a comeback.

1328
01:11:49.970 --> 01:11:52.040
Isn't that true in life? That's true in life.

1329
01:11:52.220 --> 01:11:55.010
I'm training to run a half marathon as fast as I can.

1330
01:11:55.160 --> 01:11:57.980
And one of the things I've had to do is change the cadence of my training

1331
01:11:58.160 --> 01:11:59.690
and go to more track workouts.

1332
01:11:59.990 --> 01:12:01.190
I know that in relationships,

1333
01:12:01.190 --> 01:12:02.780
when things are getting stale in a relationship,

1334
01:12:02.780 --> 01:12:04.750
we all know this, you have to change the cadence.

1335
01:12:04.760 --> 01:12:05.840
Something has to change.

1336
01:12:06.050 --> 01:12:08.060
Maybe you can remember a subject in school.

1337
01:12:08.070 --> 01:12:09.230
For me, it was calculus.

1338
01:12:09.410 --> 01:12:10.870
That was my struggle subject.

1339
01:12:10.970 --> 01:12:15.440
I had to change the cadence of my calculus study and I had to get a tutor.

1340
01:12:15.590 --> 01:12:17.830
I mean, am I the only one that was the theme of my life

1341
01:12:17.830 --> 01:12:19.820
at that time was Bon Jovi's living on a prayer?

1342
01:12:19.820 --> 01:12:22.730
When I was taking calculus, it was all about living on a prayer.

1343
01:12:23.900 --> 01:12:26.240
- He uses the random phrase flawlessly.

1344
01:12:26.990 --> 01:12:28.280
Take my hand, we'll make it I swear, Oh, living on a prayer.

1345
01:12:28.310 --> 01:12:30.710
That's how I felt in calculus a lot of the time.

1346
01:12:31.130 --> 01:12:33.410
But I knew that something had to change.

1347
01:12:33.440 --> 01:12:34.190
Here's what I know.

1348
01:12:34.210 --> 01:12:36.920
I know that wherever you want to make a comeback in your life,

1349
01:12:37.100 --> 01:12:39.830
there's gonna be a need for you to change your cadence.

1350
01:12:40.370 --> 01:12:43.040
And Jesus is all about cadence change.

1351
01:12:43.070 --> 01:12:46.160
He is all about comebacks and cadence change.

1352
01:12:46.200 --> 01:12:49.400
There's a core message that Jesus taught all throughout the scriptures.

1353
01:12:49.400 --> 01:12:50.840
It's found in Mark 1.

1354
01:12:51.080 --> 01:12:51.590
And he says this:

1355
01:12:58.160 --> 01:13:00.530
That word repent means to change.

1356
01:13:00.560 --> 01:13:02.900
Jesus invites you to change.

1357
01:13:03.180 --> 01:13:05.990
And so no matter where you want to make a comeback in your life,

1358
01:13:06.020 --> 01:13:10.460
I want you to know Jesus invites you to change and he loves comeback stories.

1359
01:13:10.490 --> 01:13:13.520
There's a man named Jesus and he came back from the dead

1360
01:13:13.550 --> 01:13:15.770
so that you could come back from the dead

1361
01:13:15.770 --> 01:13:18.760
wherever it is in your life, you need to see something change.

1362
01:13:18.920 --> 01:13:22.130
And he's inviting you to repent and believe the good news,

1363
01:13:22.130 --> 01:13:24.110
to change your cadence.

1364
01:13:24.170 --> 01:13:27.200
I don't know if maybe for you the change that needs to happen

1365
01:13:27.380 --> 01:13:30.770
is you've been trusting in yourself to try to fix this.

1366
01:13:31.100 --> 01:13:35.900
And the invitation of Jesus is to trust in him to fix this with you.

1367
01:13:36.260 --> 01:13:38.960
Maybe for you, you've been trying to do it all alone.

1368
01:13:39.170 --> 01:13:41.630
And now the cadence changed that you're being called to

1369
01:13:41.810 --> 01:13:44.810
is to step into a community where you can know and be known,

1370
01:13:44.810 --> 01:13:47.030
where maybe there'll be some correction to embrace.

1371
01:13:47.150 --> 01:13:49.970
But absolutely, people will help you go to a new place.

1372
01:13:50.150 --> 01:13:55.520
Wherever it is in your life that you want to
experience a change, Jesus is up for the comeback.

1373
01:13:55.610 --> 01:13:56.780
He's always up for the comeback.

1374
01:13:56.810 --> 01:13:59.120
Who's up for the comeback? Who's up for the comeback?

1375
01:14:00.350 --> 01:14:01.130
[cheering]

1376
01:14:01.130 --> 01:14:03.740
Jesus is up for the comeback in your life,

1377
01:14:03.740 --> 01:14:09.530
if you'll change your cadence, good news, the kingdom of God comes near.

1378
01:14:09.560 --> 01:14:11.920
Change your cadence. So here's the thing I want to challenge you with.

1379
01:14:12.140 --> 01:14:15.200
You heard a lot today and want to ask you to apply it in this way.

1380
01:14:15.230 --> 01:14:19.190
What's one change you can make in an area of your life

1381
01:14:19.190 --> 01:14:20.300
where you want to make a comeback?

1382
01:14:20.870 --> 01:14:21.800
One change.

1383
01:14:22.280 --> 01:14:25.760
I want you to know, I believe that place of change

1384
01:14:25.910 --> 01:14:28.760
is the place where the kingdom of God just might come near.

1385
01:14:28.880 --> 01:14:34.010
And 2020 just might be the year your comeback story began.

1386
01:14:34.460 --> 01:14:38.720
So as I wrap up in the words of the great Kobe Bryant, Mingo out.

1387
01:14:40.910 --> 01:14:44.520
- Wow! - Touchdown Team Tome.

1388
01:14:48.830 --> 01:14:51.290
Chuck, you're awarded six points for a great message,

1389
01:14:51.290 --> 01:14:53.810
three points for an excellent use of the random phrase,

1390
01:14:54.050 --> 01:14:56.800
resulting in an end of game score 18 - 18.

1391
01:14:57.350 --> 01:14:59.150
- Whoo, tie game. - Would you like to go--

1392
01:14:59.150 --> 01:15:00.320
Yeah, there can be no ties in the sports.

1393
01:15:00.350 --> 01:15:02.710
- For the win. - For the win, the Bible trivia question.

1394
01:15:02.710 --> 01:15:06.680
- Yes.

1395
01:15:06.680 --> 01:15:06.690
- When he doesn't get this right, do we have a chance at it too?

1396
01:15:06.690 --> 01:15:06.700
- Absolutely.

1397
01:15:07.000 --> 01:15:07.480
- Perfect. - Oh, raising the stakes.

1398
01:15:07.730 --> 01:15:09.470
- I feel like that rule was just made up.

1399
01:15:10.430 --> 01:15:12.260
- According to the book of Jonah,

1400
01:15:12.800 --> 01:15:16.280
the prophet spent three days in the belly of a large fish.

1401
01:15:17.800 --> 01:15:21.560
Did the fish like it? You have five seconds.

1402
01:15:22.130 --> 01:15:25.340
- Well, the fish vomited him out three days later, so I'm gonna say no.

1403
01:15:26.660 --> 01:15:29.360
- Well, he did let him spend the night there three nights in a row,

1404
01:15:31.400 --> 01:15:32.600
but he did spit him out.

1405
01:15:32.600 --> 01:15:32.830
Team Tome for the win!

1406
01:15:38.060 --> 01:15:43.570
Wow, there it is, Team Tome wins with an unexpected MVP of Chuck Mingo.

1407
01:15:43.630 --> 01:15:45.350
I don't think any of us could've seen this coming.

1408
01:15:45.350 --> 01:15:50.140
Challenge flags and participation trophies all around.

1409
01:15:51.370 --> 01:15:52.090
Unbelievable.

1410
01:15:52.120 --> 01:15:55.090
Hey, let's head back down to the field for some final thoughts from Brian.

1411
01:15:56.560 --> 01:15:57.900
- Did we have some fun today?

1412
01:15:57.900 --> 01:15:58.510
Did we?

1413
01:15:58.520 --> 01:16:03.610
And maybe, maybe, just maybe, we all got something

1414
01:16:03.640 --> 01:16:06.640
that we can apply to our lives tomorrow, a better understanding

1415
01:16:06.640 --> 01:16:09.160
of God and better understanding of some things we might want to change.

1416
01:16:09.190 --> 01:16:11.290
So I hope that, that's why we do this, not just to have fun,

1417
01:16:11.290 --> 01:16:14.080
but actually help us all win.

1418
01:16:14.110 --> 01:16:17.140
Next week, we're going to start a new series I'm pretty excited about.

1419
01:16:17.140 --> 01:16:22.010
In 23 years Crossroads has been around 23 years or 24, whatever it is, 23.

1420
01:16:22.480 --> 01:16:24.680
We've never talked politics.

1421
01:16:24.680 --> 01:16:26.230
That changes next week.

1422
01:16:27.070 --> 01:16:28.280
Some of you are going like, "What?

1423
01:16:28.280 --> 01:16:30.010
What do you mean? I'm nervous."

1424
01:16:30.250 --> 01:16:31.600
You're going to have to come and find out.

1425
01:16:31.900 --> 01:16:33.490
Don't panic. Take heart.

1426
01:16:33.880 --> 01:16:34.300
2020.

1427
01:16:34.330 --> 01:16:37.570
It's the most divisive time ever as an American,

1428
01:16:37.570 --> 01:16:39.070
the most divisive election will ever have.

1429
01:16:39.280 --> 01:16:40.840
We want to help you, that's we're looking to do.

1430
01:16:40.870 --> 01:16:41.590
We're looking to help you.

1431
01:16:41.800 --> 01:16:43.120
And so we'll see you next week.

1432
01:16:43.210 --> 01:16:45.250
we're going to go back to all of our sites right now

1433
01:16:45.250 --> 01:16:47.020
as we say: See you next week.

1434
01:16:47.620 --> 01:16:50.700
- Well, you can't get that hour of your life back, can you?

1435
01:16:50.920 --> 01:16:52.960
- No, you can't. - Hopefully you had some fun.

1436
01:16:53.030 --> 01:16:53.150
- Yeah.

1437
01:16:53.230 --> 01:16:54.100
- Hopefully you laughed a bit.

1438
01:16:54.130 --> 01:16:57.100
Hopefully you had a good time, you enjoyed it.

1439
01:16:57.190 --> 01:16:59.110
And hopefully you took a step closer to God today.

1440
01:16:59.520 --> 01:17:02.950
- Yeah. And if you came out of this going, "I want to be on a team.

1441
01:17:03.010 --> 01:17:05.560
I to be part of a winning a powerful team,"

1442
01:17:05.590 --> 01:17:07.450
you could join a group today.

1443
01:17:07.480 --> 01:17:09.740
If you chat with us on the Crossroads web site,

1444
01:17:09.740 --> 01:17:10.960
we would love to get you started

1445
01:17:10.960 --> 01:17:14.230
and help you find a group of people near you or online,

1446
01:17:14.490 --> 01:17:16.630
to help you go to the next place in your relationship with God

1447
01:17:16.660 --> 01:17:18.210
and the next place and your friendships.

1448
01:17:18.280 --> 01:17:20.590
- That's right. This whole thing is sharable online, by the way,

1449
01:17:20.830 --> 01:17:23.740
YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, all your social channels.

1450
01:17:24.010 --> 01:17:25.330
All you've got to do is click the share button.

1451
01:17:25.360 --> 01:17:28.180
But do yourself a favor, give a little context first.

1452
01:17:28.180 --> 01:17:28.920
Don't just share it random.

1453
01:17:28.930 --> 01:17:30.100
- Or give your friends a favor.

1454
01:17:30.640 --> 01:17:30.930
Right?

1455
01:17:31.330 --> 01:17:32.930
And you could join us next week.

1456
01:17:32.930 --> 01:17:34.660
We have a brand new series starting.

1457
01:17:34.900 --> 01:17:37.850
Join us at a location near you or right here online.

1458
01:17:38.020 --> 01:17:40.300
- That's right. Well, thank you so much for joining us today.

1459
01:17:40.500 --> 01:17:42.890
For Lena Schule, I'm never Neville Paco Panchum,

1460
01:17:42.970 --> 01:17:44.450
it's been great being with you.

1461
01:17:44.470 --> 01:17:45.880
The Super Bowl of preaching.

1462
01:17:46.270 --> 01:17:47.500
That's a wrap. - That's a wrap.

1463
01:17:49.770 --> 01:17:51.100
- Everybody's looking for an edge, right?

1464
01:17:51.160 --> 01:17:54.400
Every competition, every sport you're looking for that performance enhancer.

1465
01:17:54.460 --> 01:17:56.080
Hopefully legal, not legal.

1466
01:17:56.530 --> 01:17:59.260
And, you know, I don't want to start any rumors or anything,

1467
01:17:59.290 --> 01:18:02.020
but I was in the speaker room and I found -- I just found this.

1468
01:18:02.650 --> 01:18:04.390
It's a very serious thing. I don't know if you've ever heard of this.

1469
01:18:04.390 --> 01:18:05.980
This is a coffee enema.

1470
01:18:06.470 --> 01:18:08.290
Lot of kids are doing these these days.

1471
01:18:08.310 --> 01:18:10.810
Gives you an edge. A little bit of a boost.

1472
01:18:11.410 --> 01:18:13.930
It was in the speaker room. I don't know if it was Chuck,

1473
01:18:14.550 --> 01:18:18.030
if it was Alli, but it was probably definitely one of them.

1474
01:18:18.050 --> 01:18:19.490
So if you wanted to like do a tweet about it.

1475
01:18:19.490 --> 01:18:19.600
- Chuck, it was Chuck.

1476
01:18:19.600 --> 01:18:24.120
- But it is fresh, by the way, if you wanted to give that a quick --

1477
01:18:24.120 --> 01:18:26.350
- Oh, no, no. - Maybe later after we're done.

1478
01:18:26.530 --> 01:18:27.660
After we're done filming then.

1479
01:18:27.660 --> 01:18:28.510
Guys, after we're done.
Process, journal or discuss the themes of this article - here's a few questions to get the ball rolling...

Welcome to the Weekend Follow Up.

  1. Which Super Bowl commercial was your favorite and why? (You can pick any commercial from the REAL Super Bowl and the one with the 49ers and Chiefs)

  2. To have a comeback and win⁠—the status quo ain’t gonna get us there. Read Romans 12:2. Discuss with your group what are these patterns and what does renewing your mind mean?

  3. Getting feedback is sometimes hard. We may feel embarrassed, get defensive, or even defeated. Have you ever embraced positive correction? How did it feel, and what was the outcome? Did you have a comeback?

  4. This may sound crazy, but God gives us positive corrections too. It says so in Hebrews 12:6.

    Let’s give the introverts a break by sitting in silence for three whole minutes. Ask God where you need some positive correction. Whatever pops into your mind, just believe it’s from God and share it with your group. (Once three minutes are over—don’t interrupt the silence!)

  5. After everyone has shared, have a discussion about a single, easy step you could take today towards your own comeback victory. After you’re finished, pray for each other and close out.

    We’ll see you next week.
