“Bless”: Episode 161
Be a Blessing
He may have already told you if you’re a lion, otter, beaver or golden retriever, but Dr. John Trent has something new to share. He and his colleague Dr. Tony Wheeler join this week’s roundtable to discuss the power of active blessing in someone’s life. “If you’re not blessing, you’re cursing,” John says. John and Tony unveil The Blessing Challenge and detail five ways that you can both give and receive blessing in a way that’s meaningful to both parties. When was the last time you intentionally added value to someone’s life through words, meaningful touch or other means? You can’t remember? Well, get started today.
Standing on Their Shoulders
Guests: Craig Groeschel,
When I heard Craig Groeschel speak on this subject at Catalyst 2010, I knew I had to have him on the show. In fact, this message earned a standing O from the 13,000-plus attendees. What was it? A smackdown. And you know I love smackdowns. Craig, pastor of LifeChurch.tv in Oklahoma, basically told an arena full of young adults that we have not honored those in spiritual leadership over us; in some cases, we’ve ignored them completely. But the ministry we’re doing today is built on their foundational work and the legacies they’ve left and are leaving. Craig shares why remembering those who’ve gone before us and respecting those who are now leading us is key to being effective in what God is calling us to do. We’ve got a lot to learn.
