Intimacy & the Formation of our Souls AUDIO

On Saturday Sept 20, 2017, we hosted a Collective in which we looked at the topic of intimacy and vulnerability. What is intimacy? Why is it important? How is human intimacy related to intimacy with God? Give this audio a listen from Dr. Doug Kelley – Professor of Communication at Arizona State as he examines these questions and more. There are several sections in the audio in which questions are asked by the audience – be patient as Dr. Kelley usually responds in ways that make the question more clear. Below the audio file you will also find the handout that references much of what was discussed.

Emotions & the Spiritual Journey AUDIO

On Tuesday June 20, we hosted an evening of examining emotions and the impact they have on our life with God. Designed by God, emotions are a valuable part of how we connect with God and navigate our world. Emotions are frequently misunderstood and often ignored.

Power in Weakness VIDEO

On Wednesday March 15, 2017, we hosted an author event with Kyle Strobel and Jamin Goggin in which they shared about their new book, “The Way of the Dragon or the Way of the Lamb”. They walked us through the deep waters of thinking about meeting God in our weakness so that His power rests upon us.
