While there are lots of one-year Bible reading plans, few help you understand the words that we’re reading. Our guest will coach us through some of the Bible's most important verses. These are the "core" of the Bible. Each verse clears the path to master and manage dozens of other verses that run along the same principle path. The goal of our conversation is to move us from curiosity about the Bible to competence in the Bible. Then, we get an update on issues our Christian brothers and sisters are facing in the U.K.
We all need more energy, the vitality that helps us stay motivated, focused and productive in life. We know we receive energy from good nutrition, along with working out, adequate sleep and maintaining positivity. But there is another major source for the energy we need: having the right kinds of relationships with others. Not the ones that drain us, but the ones that refuel us. Today, our guest will show us how we need the fuel of "Relational Nutrients" from others, and, in turn we can then provide them to others.
