||CleanThe Song Of Life||Changing the world begins with a burden. Like Habakkuk, we have a mandate to take what breaks our hearts and translate it into action--into a song God has called forth. Danny Silk invites us to move from powerless complaints to good works, partnering with Heaven to catalyze the changes the world aches for. As we align our perspective on injustice with God’s, we are empowered to live a powerful story!||5/1/2016||Free||View In iTunes|
||CleanPlace of Refuge||Living as salt and light means flavoring the world around us with the love of God. But how can we manifest Kingdom culture in our cities if we’re too busy judging people? How can we be a safe place for others when our opinions get in the way of trusting connection? Pastor Eric Johnson invites us to a shift in perspective: what if, instead of an “us vs. them” mentality, we started thinking like “we”? When align with Heaven in the way we view and love non-believers, we’ll find ourselves with renewed favor and influence--places of refuge for the ones God loves.||4/24/2016||Free||View In iTunes|
||CleanGod On Mute||Too often we restrain ourselves by complicating simple decisions when God offers us a spacious, free life. If we find ourselves confined, we’ve probably misunderstood the will of God, who no longer calls us servants, but friends! Pastor Eric Johnson illustrates the Lord’s true will for us with scripture, empowering us to walk in a new level of relationship with Him based on His heart and values.||4/17/2016||Free||View In iTunes|
