It is a popular exercise to begin a new year with certain goals or resolutions and then to quickly fall back into old patterns and habits. Pastor Doug Rowland is asking us to consider our aim for this new year. What are we to be committed to as followers of Jesus? Listen as Doug takes us through Psalm 15:1-5 to shine the light on that path to which we should be wholly dedicated in 2022!
What does the ancient wisdom of Jesus have to say to our pandemic weary world? Author Brent Crowe says there is a time-tested, pandemic tested approach to a more fulfilling kind of life and he talks with us about how to discover it! Instead of moaning the past normal, Brent asks us to be courageous and move ahead with the wonder of walking down an untraveled road to a new destination!
