God wants more of you - Episode 29
Join Josh Raine & Scott Lanigan as we return to The Story and hear about two judges from Judges 2:15-7the third week of our Cultivate series; based on Colossians 1:3-6. Questions we consider: - Can we expand on “whatever seems right in their eyes”? I want to talk about what that looks like for us. - Why is it that Israel remains God’s even though they keep failing? You are not defined by your failure (Israel is still God’s) “It doesn’t matter who you are, it’s that God is with you.” - You called us to ask “does faith even matter?” Can we walk through this process? - What do we need to learn from Gideon’s story? - Gideon is often best known for his “fleece” It seems like Gideon is testing God? How is that? - You make the point that it's "not you needing more of God... it’s God needing more of you". How have we experienced this, thus far in The Story? - What does it mean that "wherever you are, Jesus will start there"?

Hearing God as He Works in the World - Episode 28
Join Josh Raine & Wayne Alguire as we unpack the third week of our Cultivate series; based on Colossians 1:3-6. Questions we consider: * Cultivate Growth: How do we understand what it means to cultivate growth with Christ at the centre, rippling out from there? * World: What does it mean to reach the world for Jesus? * TC History: God raised up people and resources to do different things in different places at different times. How are we seeing what’s next and where will it be? * What does it look like to live out the strengths and weaknesses of the McManus' quote? Erwin McManus said, “When the church is a movement, it becomes a place of refuge for an unbelieving world. The church becomes where the seekers finally find the God they were searching for. The church becomes the place for the broken and the weary to finally find the healing and the help they’ve cried for. The church becomes the place where the lonely and the outcast are finally embraced and loved in the community of Christ. When the church becomes a movement and not a monastery, she becomes a place of transformation for the very culture from which we run in fear.” * What were some of the moments when you heard God during the Zoom Call with Peru? * One Percent Challenge: how do we navigate the call to the One Percent Challenge? What does it mean to be a mosaic while we seek to change our world?

"Be Neighbour Like Jesus" - Episode 27
Join Josh Raine & Scott Lanigan as we unpack the second week of our Cultivate series; based on Matthew 22:34-40. Questions we consider: What about the synagogues and sects? Where is the power in Love God & Love neighbour? What’s the biggest qualifier for “love your neighbour” that you think is out there right now? What did you need to leave out from your message? Haddon Robinson: Your neighbor is anyone you see whose need you are in a position to meet.” Value is determined by what someone is willing to pay for it. What’s the trick to assigning value to someone else’s life? God said I love you first. How should that lead us in our response? Why do we think that “lead with love” is a soft approach? And why do we try to justify “tough” love? What are practical next steps to get these words off the pages and into our hearts and into our community?

Talk About It Podcast | Episode 26
Join Josh Raine & Wayne Alguire as we unpack the first week of our Cultivate series; based on Colossians 1:3-10. Questions we consider: Why did you choose Colossians 1:3-10 for this weekend? How would Paul have understood the great hope and amazing grace that the Colossians were experiencing? Why is it so hard to follow Jesus in today's culture? How do we balance personal life change and changing the world around us? Many people can be fooled into looking to Jesus as a personal guru, good teacher or the procurer of "the good life". What is the most popular thing people do to cultivate growth? Why do you think this is? In general, what does spiritual ignorance look like? How are we to consider the practices you suggested: scripture, prayer, serving, generosity, story & worship? How do we understand processes like "Emotionally Healthy Spirituality"?

Talk About It Podcast | Episode 17
Join us as we talk about our teaching from February 6 & 7, 2021. We consider questions like: Why did you include this quote? “Waiting is essential. For it’s in the waiting that our soul grows quiet and contemplative and cultivates a capacity for awareness by which we can discern what God is doing when he does act.” How do we make waiting purposeful? Why did you decide to break it up with "What's up" with the people, the leaders and God? How does curiosity affect us well instead of leading to criticism? How do we understand the preparation that Moses has gone through with his waiting on God? How do we practice curiosity, have the relationship with God but keep idols away?

Join Josh Raine & Wayne Alguire as they go over questions from the December 19 & 20 weekend teaching. Questions like: 1) What inspired your thoughts behind this message? 2) Why is it important to linger? 3) Why is it significant that God is our our midst? How is that different? What should we expect? “The really staggering Christian claim is that Jesus of Nazareth was God made man. That Jesus took on full humanity without loss of full deity. It is from misbelief, or at least inadequate belief, about the Incarnation that difficulties at other points in the gospel story usually spring. But once the Incarnation is grasped as a reality, these other difficulties dissolve.” - J.I. Packer
