Singing in the Rain

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

No doubt, someone has told you, “Don’t let the hard times get you down!”, or words to that effect.

But the same jokers who spout cliches like that don’t tell you how to not let the bad stuff get you down.

In this sermon, as we look at Joel Osteen’s fifth principle from Your Best Life Now, we’ll dig into some practical ways to triumph while you’re in the midst of hard times. Listen for something more than a cliche.

Are You Available?

Sunday, December 23rd, 2007

This week, being so close Christmas and all, we’ll look at a portion of the Christmas story — the shepherds visit to the Christ child.

That old thing again? No surprises there! Blah, blah, blah.

It all depends on how you look at it. We’ll dig beneath the familiar to find something more. How can we, like the shepherds, be witness to the presence of God?

When Life Is Unfair

Sunday, December 9th, 2007

When someone is treating you badly, how do you react? Do you strike back? Or is there a better way?

Last Sunday we talked about how important it is to be willing to forgive and let go of the past. But what if something isn’t in your past? What if it’s happening now?

How should someone who wants to live well respond to an ongoing oppressive situation? Listen as we delve into the spiritual principles that will help us rise above the stress and trouble.

Mastering Our Past

Sunday, December 2nd, 2007

Think about some of your past hurts or mistakes. Are they easy to conjure up? Is it a struggle to let go of them?

The past — all of those mistakes, bad memories, times of pain — can be like quicksand, dragging us down and never letting go.

This sermon looks at the 4th principle from Joel Osteen’s Your Best Life Now letting go of the past. Listen or watch for some practical ways to leave the past in the past.
