Taking Your Chances
Lance Burch | 
January 30, 2011
Thinking deeply about our limited time on the planet challenges us to invest ourselves in something significant. Maybe we should add something to our bucket list that is too big for us to handle, something risky, and something that we can't do without God's help. We/ll have more than one opportunity to do some Godsized things in this life. Let's not waste these opportunities. Let's take our chances.
Scare Tactics

This is the season that we celebrate fear... so to speak. It is sort of fun to be afraid, isn’t it? At least when you feel that you can control it. Once fear takes over, well, that’s no fun at all.
Combining Two Primaries

Maybe you remember the color wheel from school. The art teacher showed us all about complementary, secondary, and the primary colors. It was amazing to see how two colors could blend on the paper to make something entirely different and vibrant. From that color combination all sorts of options and possibilities open up. Today, we are going to take a look at the two primary influencers in the world. What would happen if you blended those two God-given influencers together? The answer to that question changes everything.
Mouthing Off

It's funny how much trouble we can get ourselves into with just a few poorly chosen words. We want to be witty and end up being cruel. We want others to know how displeased we are and so we shoot a snide remark in their direction. Our words end up damaging those around us. They also come back and hurt us. Of course, we can't take these moments back. The damage is done. So, let's see if we can change our words so that those moments build up instead of tear down.

Psalm 13:1-6
When we worship God, that worship should include every facet of life ... shouldn't it? I mean if we experience it, we should filter it through the lens of our life in God and express it back to Him - even if that expression is haunting, uncomfortable, and reveals our doubt. Psalm 13 is a short but powerful complaint ... aimed at God.
Coaching Adolescents

There are a lot of different teen parenting strategies out there. But one that seems to have gained a pretty large following is the concept of being your child’s biggest fan. I think we need to examine this idea and think deeply about the role that we are called to play in the lives of our teens.
Saving Seats

Matthew 6:25-34
In a world that promises us so much and delivers so little, it is amazing how many times I buy the lie. I wonder if you do it, too. We have a tendency to believe the false hope that our culture is hyping. It’s like we are saving seats for friends that never show. Time is passing and we are missing the plot, because our eyes are on the door waiting…

Colossians 2:11-23
Most of us have had the experience of feeling like we didn't measure up. Feeling like an outsider can make us vulnerable to those who seem to be on the inside track. It even happens at church. From the time the church began in the first century, there have been those who are happy to add their spin to the finished work of Christ.
Moving On

That's just the way I am. Its how I've always been and how I'll always be. I used to think that I could change but, now I realize that I just need to accept myself. While these statements could reflect a healthy sense of self, many times they reveal a stagnant spiritual life. What about you? Are you progressing? Or have you just......stopped?
Culture Shock

July 6, 2008
As exciting as landing in an unknown territory is, it is scary and unsettling as well. We don't know what to expect. What are the customs? Am I going to be able to communicate? Do they have toilet paper? Getting past the initial shock of being in a new culture is essential though...if anything of value is going to come of our journey.
