Principles Without Poison

• Kevin Callaghan, Shawna Boren

God has called us to seek the peace of the land in which we live, to be God’s ambassadors who offer a third way. How do we do this? In this conversational sermon, Bill Doherty, from the organization Braver Angels, shares his experience of leading workshops that include Democrats and Republicans with the goal of helping each group understand the other.

Topics: Conflict, Kingdom of God, Peace


We Will Not Be Played

• Greg Boyd

One of the primary means the enemy uses to divide people today is social media. While social media has many advantages, it also is designed in such a way that it can easily be used as a tool of Satan. If we are not intentionally resisting the schemes of the enemy, we will too easily be played by them.

Topics: Conflict, Spiritual Warfare


Taming the Raging Elephant

• Greg Boyd

When we disagree, we usually assume that reason, not emotion, is driving the interaction, but actually the opposite is true. Greg explains how our default is to use reasoning to justify our emotions, and how knowing this can help us respond well during a heated discussion.

Topics: Conflict, Peace


A Tale of Two Kingdoms

• Greg Boyd

In the midst of a divided and polarized world, how does the church respond in a way that reflects God’s kingdom? To answer this question, we must understand the nature of God’s kingdom and how it stands in contrast to the kingdoms of this world.

Topics: Non-Violence, Spiritual Warfare


Resisting the Polarizing Powers

• Greg Boyd

What is the real cause of the persecution that Jesus says leads to blessedness? The answer is found in the refusal to make enemies of others or to embrace an “us vs. them” mindset. By opting out of this game, we no longer fit on either side and persecution becomes the norm.

Topics: Non-Violence, Spiritual Warfare


The Woe Road

• Greg Boyd

In Luke’s version of the Sermon on the Mount, he includes Jesus’ teaching on those who have embraced idols and are not blessed as they are on the path of woe. This sermon addresses what these “woes” mean and how we can fight against the woe road.

Topics: Blessings, Covenant, Judgment


Yard Signs and Yearning

• Osheta Moore

Our world offers continual distractions that overwhelm us and keep us from purity of heart, and therefore hinder our sight of God. To have purity of heart is to have a single-minded focus on one thing, the one thing that matters.

Topics: Blessings, Discipleship


What Do You Hunger and Thirst For?

• Greg Boyd

God created us with a homing device in our souls which causes us to hunger for LIFE that can only be filled through our connection with him. However, we too often fall into the trap of hungering and thirsting after idols that leave us empty and leave us restless.

Topics: Blessings, Communion

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
