Are You All In?
Guests: Mark Batterson
Mark Batterson is weary of what he calls "The Inverted Gospel" — the idea that instead of following Christ, we've invited Him to follow us. Convinced you would never do such a thing? Well, how do you prioritize your time, money, talents — even your heart? Have you told God you'll follow Him whatever the cost? Mark argues in his newest book that going first "all in," then "all out" for Christ is the best decision you'll make, and the only way to truly live.
What Does My Pastor Need?
Guests: Andrew Hess
You want to show your pastor you care, but don't know how. How do you encourage a guy who's busy, surrounded by people almost 24/7, and doesn't really know you that well, if at all? Andrew Hess has some ideas, including a recommendation to download Focus on the Family's Guide to Clergy Appreciation Month.
