Brandan walks us through how we are the vine and there are times in our life where God chooses to prune us. Not because its easy or it feels good, but because it is good for us. Brandan talks through some of the prunings of his past to show there are blessings when we are pruned.
To pray or not to pray, if God has already planned out the fate of the world what good is it for me to pray? Brandan explores the prayer paradox by looking at both old and new testament scripture, so listen in and see what he has learned this week.
As parents, we have a responsibility to teach our children a number of lessons but the most important of all is pointing them to Christ. This is not as simple as "do as I say not as I do" our kids are smarter than that, we have to live a life pointing to Christ or they will likely go their own when they are older.
Listen in as Brandan talks about a topic people love to give advice on but never happily accept, PARENTING... Dun dun dun... Brandan reminds us our identity must be found in Christ and not in the success/failure of our children, spouse, job etc. Also we due to technical difficulties we do not have the last 5 min of Brandan's message, but don't worry all the good stuff as at the beginning.
Why is this man wearing a sweater on his head? Where is Brandan to stop this nonsense? Is it a new trend? (I hope not) Listen in as George Aubrey takes a look at Matthew 7 and the importance of the reading the bible and especially the red letters. Here is the link to video George references and we watched during church.
Brandan continues using his "Here 2 There" chair analogy, and reminds us as we start to take make changes in our lives everything will likely fall apart, but the end result is worth the struggle and pain.
Listen in this week as special guest Jon Holland looks at how our praise has a greater purpose and impact that affects not only us but those around us.
