 Lecture Detail

Enjoying What God Enjoys
In our efforts to do the will of God in our lives, it is helpful to pay attention to the kinds of things in which God takes delight. God rejoices in the things of creation, and God wants us to as well.Daily Discipleship
The details of our daily lives matter to God:work, play, entertainment, family life, friendships. our engagements as citizens. Learning to please the Lord in these things means, for starters, acknowledging that Jesus is the Lord of all of life.

The Call to Civility
Incivility is widespread in our culture these days. What does it mean for Christians to be “civil” toward folks with whom we may have serious disagreements about important matters?
