How Do I Pray?


If someone were to ask you if you were a prayer person, you would likely say, "Yes." But if that same person were to ask you if those prayers were effective, or if you believed God even heard them, there would likely be a very different response. One major reason would be because we don't know if we even know what we are doing. This episode looks at what Jesus had to say about prayer -- what to do and what NOT to do.

What if I Doubt?


Have you ever doubted your faith? If not, you are in the minority. The truth is, most of us question what we believe and why we believe it more than we would like to admit. So what do we do when we doubt? And how can we be certain after we have doubted? This is where the rubber meets the road and the Bible does not leave us alone to figure it out for ourselves. If you have found yourself doubting your faith, this is an episode you won't want to miss. Support the show (
Let's be honest. There are a lot of things Jesus offers to rally around. Unmerited Grace. Mercy. Forgiving everything we have ever done or ever will do, forgetting it, AND taking the punishment for it. But then there are some aspects of being a follower of Christ that feel like hugging a porcupine or are about as smart as enticing a skunk to your porch with a can of cat food. Yet, they are the essence of Christianity.  Today let's lean in to encounter what we may have been ignoring and consider embracing more of what Jesus has to offer in the Gospel. Support the show (
It sounds exclusive. Call it narrow. Anyone holding to a religion that accepts teaching that there can be only one way to God, is definitely small-minded, according to current cultural tides. The problem is, this belief is fundamental to basic Christianity.  Why? How can we know it's true?  And what could be said to express this belief gracefully in your everyday life? It's a worthy conversation today and needed for helping us interact with others. This episode is part of an eight-part series on Truths Jesus Taught.
