Research proves that getting way outside of your comfort zone with friends can reorient your perceptions about life and change your core belief systems, so Jeremy had an idea... What if we found the cheapest possible plane tickets to a foreign country and spend 24 hours there trying to live fully alive to the experiences and people God brings our way? This week on our summer bonus episode we spend 24 hours in a very unique country. Join us as we discover what living fully present in unfamiliar territory can do to our brains, our friendships, and our daily lives.

Connecting with people who are different than us can be awkward. A few weeks ago on the show Mia challenged us to get lunch with someone who is super different than us.  Mia joins us on the show again as we talk about what happened when we stepped out of our comfort zone to engage people who believe, act, and see the world differently than us.  It was an interesting experiment for sure and it taught us more about how to enter the world of others the way Jesus did.

We were in Memphis to honor MLK, and we had the unbelievable experience to get to spend over an hour with Dr. Perkins. He invited us into his hotel room to talk. When we arrived, he was chillin' out reading the newspaper and looking dapper as usual. It was the day of the release of his final book, One Blood, and he was generous enough to answer some questions we had about experiencing the abundant life. Soak up all you can from JP, as his family affectionately calls him. In a world of selfishness, this kind of wisdom is rare.

Explore the resources and means for getting clarity about when God is speaking to you and how He does it.

How does God use us to speak blessings into the lives of other people? Learn how to hear God's voice on behalf of other people as we join Chad on campus at UCF. We draw on Chad's experience of being intentional in conversations to learn how we can bless the people around us during the day. What are the right things to say? What questions should I ask to show that God cares for people? If Evangelism is bringing good news to people and God wants us to use us to speak His message, then let's learn together how to share specific blessings into the lives of others.

If you've ever struggled to hear from God, or if you aren't sure that God really talks with us, we created this discussion with you in mind. A lot of times Christians can go through seasons where we don't really know how to differentiate from God's voice and the other voices around us. Was that God's voice I just heard, or was it just my imagination?

If you’ve ever struggled to hear from God, or if you aren’t sure that God really talks with us, we created this discussion with you in mind. A lot of times Christians can go through seasons where we don’t really know how to differentiate from God’s voice and the other voices around us. Was that God’s voice I just heard, or was it just my imagination?

Jesus says, “My sheep know my voice.” and this means that we have it on good authority that God is actually communicating with us in a way that we can hear Him. This is good news!

In this episode, we learn more about how the Holy Spirit is the One who to help us hear from God. This is the first of a two part series with our friend Chad Johnson, who shares with us from a robust experience of daily interaction with the Holy Spirit. We learn about how God is a communicating God, and that He is communicating with us.

Chad Johnson was the A&R man for Tooth and Nail and discovered many popular bands such as Underoath, Copeland, and Anberlin, and Chad is the founder of Come&Live! In this Episode, Chad shares how to actually hear the voice of God in our everyday lives. We discuss a lot of our experiences together.

Come&Live! is an organization that provokes and inspires artists to proclaim the revolutionary message of Jesus.

What does Evangelism mean to you? What does Jesus want us to do? Explore with us a path for having meaningful conversations with people about things that matter to you.

The idea of Listen, Connect, and Help is a powerful plan for making meaningful connections with people so that they can experience God’s love through us.

Here is the video of Mr. Rogers being interviewed by Joan Rivers on the Tonight Show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-Kp5YeqrlE The way she responds to being so highly valued is something we can all learn from. Mr. Rogers was a man who really understood the power of Love, and he helped people experience the kind of Love that God has for each one of us.

Christians have been confused over the years about evangelism, with popular sayings like “come out and be ye separate” and in turn thinking that we shouldn’t associate with sinners. But Paul makes it clear in 1 Corinthians 5 that any separation we should do from people is NOT from everyday people in the world, (These are the very people we should RUN towards and love with everything we’ve got.) but rather we should separate ourselves from church-going people who claim to be Chrisians who are also intentionally immoral when they are confronted and do not begin to take on more of Jesus kind of life. https://www.bible.com/bible/111/1CO.5.9-13.NIV

Have you ever made this clear distinction and let it inform your approach to people who do not yet know Jesus?
