I’m really grateful for the ministry of Bridgetown Church in Portland, Oregon. Tyler Staton‘s recent message is a great overview of what the Bible has to say about suffering. We all face suffering; it’s really helpful when we can connect our suffering to the larger story of God.
I wrapped up our 3-part teaching series called A Life on Mission by teaching about how to share the gospel in our current cultural moment. This message gives some practical ways to think about sharing the hope we have in Jesus. You can catch the rest of the series here.
GiANT Worldwide has a powerful, free (& powerful) assessment that will help you discover your leadership voice. We all have access to the 5 Voices, but it is really helpful to know which voice is loudest for you and also to know your superpower as well as your weapons system. I’d encourage you to check it out. The link will let you create a free account. Let me know if you take the assessment and if you’d like to talk about the results.
A Quote from I’m Thinking About
I thought of a rather cruel trick I once played on a wasp. He was sucking jam on my plate and I cut him in half. He paid no attention, merely went on with his meal, while a tiny stream of jam trickled out of his severed esophagus. Only when he tried to fly away did he grasp the dreadful thing that had happened to him. It is the same with modern man. The thing that has been cut away is his soul.” — George Orwell
