Finding True Peace in Life

This past Sunday, we discussed the topic of Peace. What is it? How do I find true peace? Share a story of how God worked in a situation in your life and brought peace to a difficult situation or relationship.

What's Your Story Of Hope?

This past Sunday we talked about the hope of Christmas. Christ's coming to earth brought hope into a dark and "hopeless" situation. We challenged you to think about a time when God intervened in your life and brought about a solution to a hopeless situation. Here's part two of the challenge. Why not share your story with us on the blog? Let others learn from your circumstance or situation and see how God worked in your life. You might just encourage someone who is going through something similar today. So, what's YOUR story of hope?

Reproducing Your Influence

This past weekend we looked at how Jesus modeled leadership. The greater the impact or influence he had in peoples lives, the smaller the number of people in the group.
  • He shared his teachings with the crowds
  • He shared his ministry with the 72 disciples
  • He shared his responsibility with the 12 apostles
  • He shared his life with his 3 closest friends - Peter, James, and John

In reproducing your influence to the world around you, how do you do it at each of the four levels above?

  • Serving those around you
  • Initiating conversation with those who ask questions
  • Inviting those who are interested to participate with you
  • Investing your life in a close group of friends

How Has The Influence Message Series Impacted Your Life?

One of my main goals with this blog is to create a place where we can discuss further the message from the past Sunday. How did it impact you? What questions did it leave in your mind? What do you want to talk about in relation to the message that we didn't have time to discuss on Sunday?

So, let's get started !!

During the past six weeks we've been discussing the subject of how you and I are wired to influence the world around us. I'd like to hear from you how God has used this series to challenge you to make a greater impact in your world. I'd also like to hear any ideas raised during the message series that you'd like to discuss further.
