If someone were to ask you if you were a prayer person, you would likely say, "Yes." But if that same person were to ask you if those prayers were effective, or if you believed God even heard them, there would likely be a very different response. One major reason would be because we don't know if we even know what we are doing. This episode looks at what Jesus had to say about prayer -- what to do and what NOT to do....

Let's be honest. There are a lot of things Jesus offers to rally around. Unmerited Grace. Mercy. Forgiving everything we have ever done or ever will do, forgetting it, AND taking the punishment for it.

Yet, they are the essence of Christianity.  Today l...

It sounds exclusive. Call it narrow. Anyone holding to a religion that accepts teaching that there can be only one way to God, is definitely small-minded, according to current cultural tides. The problem is, this belief is fundamental to basic Christianity.  Why? How can we know it's true?  And what could be said to express this belief gracefully in your everyday life? It's a worthy conversation today and needed for helpi...

Frank Burns from the t.v. show M.A.S.H. once said, "It's nice to be nice to the nice." I think those were the sentiments of the lawyer who questioned Jesus about who exactly was his neighbor. But the answer Jesus gave was not in line with Frank Burns. How do we love our neighbor, Jesus-style, in 2021? Here are at least 15 ways you can begin today.
