Do you battle thoughts of condemnation? Is there a sense in which you feel your Father’s love is dependent on your performance? Pastor Chad Roberts joins us on a day when we celebrate love to share the greatest love of all. He takes us to what God says about his children, forgiveness, and unfailing love. Be encouraged in this conversation of who makes us worthy of God’s love and how we need simply to accept it.
How do you handle conflict with those you love? What happens when you and your spouse disagree, do you feel heard or dismissed? Pastor Ed Hedding joins Ken and Deb the day after Valentine’s Day to talk about one of those realities of life in a relationship that many wish they could avoid and run from, but if handled well will help us grow in intimacy and maturity.
From your morning cup of coffee, the clothes we put on, and the jobs we go to we are confronted daily with the reality that we need each other. So how does this interconnectedness with our community and world affect how we respond to those in need? Are we purposely making it part of our lifestyle to connect with those who are different than us? In this week of discovering how we are called to love, Ken and Deb are joined by the founder of Love Beyond Walls, Terence Lester, who challenges us to embrace proximity, connect with others, seek justice, and change the world.
