Time to Rethink: Who’s Willing? (Ep 63)
So much of what we think it means to follow Jesus would seem strange to his first followers.

On Purpose — Together #forSalem (Ep 53)
Often, our lives are the result of just allowing life to happen to us. Sometimes we like where we end up and more often than not we don’t. But what if there’s a better way? What if we knew what our true purpose was and purposely lived out our lives to fulfill it? We can… the Good Life is lived on purpose for a purpose.

Christmas #forSalem 2019
For many, Christmas brings a vague longing of a hazy memory of something better. There’s a feeling that something is out there (some kind of Christmas magic) but we just can’t reach it... The world seems dark, but something in us says it’s not supposed to be like this. That’s why Jesus came, to show us… God is with us, and God is for us. And Christmas is about God making things the way they should be.
