Art Of Love: Communicate
The third part of Love that we seem to be more timid about than we should be is, speaking up! We need to open our stinkin' mouth and speak with truth and love. To love like Jesus loved the church means to speak up when needed and build each other up in love and that requires conversation between one another. This week we get to hear from two people. The first bit is Venture Church's pastor, Chris Woolard. The second bit is from a missionary Sean Cooper that is traveling to Southeast Asia to communicate the Gospel to people who have never heard anything like it. His family's story is eye opening and worth the listen! Check it out.

    Art Of Love: Sharing Life, Investing Time
    The second color of the primary color wheel... Community. This series we are learning about the three "primary colors" of love. Last week we learned about the first color, character. That we speak from the heart and to love we have to have a character like Jesus. This week we learn about the second primary color of the art of love and that is community. Sharing life and investing time. This day and age we are able to remove ourselves from society quickly. We are also able to engage into society easily. We learn how by having the character of Jesus while being in community and sharing life is closer to the masterpiece God painted love to be.

    Thrive: Producing Good Fruit
    Part of thriving and not just surviving comes down to the source of life. Comes back to where our nourishment comes from. One would say to be healthy you need to start eating healthy. Get a good diet and lay off the potato chips and sweets. Where does your nourishment for your mind and soul come from? C.S. Lewis once said “If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” If we were made for another world, if God truly did create us then, we should be connected to Him and His source. This week Patrick talks about getting back to that connection or maybe making the first connection if it has never been made.

    Thrive: Faith Is A Muscle
    This week by learning about how to thrive we learn that faith is a muscle. Meaning if it's not worked it doesn't grow. You have to work it out and there will be days you don't want to and there will be days when you'll have growing pains. In the end through the trials you'll see that faith in Jesus is what He wants. Maybe that's not what you want. Maybe you'd rather put your faith in something else. Well listen in to this sermon to find why faith in Jesus is what we need.
