Speed Of Life: Don’t Get Ahead (Greg)

June 25, 2012

The speed of life is run with other people, not ahead of them. Living with other people is great! Livingout front is just plain lonely. You have a team. They are the ones who make you 'successful' in life. They are the ones who give your life meaning. Sharing life with them is one of the most demanding and selfless things you can do - and it's probably the most important. This isn't just an insight, it is something we need to learn about and practice. Let's start now!

Speed Of Life: Be Last (Greg)

June 18, 2012

The high flying sectors of our society are all abuzz with how to lead. That's great, the world needs us to be better leaders, but something's missing. Following. What if some of the most important roles you ever play in life won't be from the front of the pack, but following up in the rear? Living at the speed of life may send you to last place. Are you all right with that? God is. You can be too. Jesus couldn't talk enough about it, let's join in the conversation.

Speed Of Life: Stop For Water (Greg)

June 11, 2012

(This is a partial recording.  The message was given at Minnehaha Falls Park.  It was recorded on a cell phone.)

You've been told to slow down a million times. You've heard the difference between the human race and the rat race just as many. It hasn't made any difference has it? What if it wasn't about slowing down? What if the speed of life wasn't a speed at all, but living fully while remembering a couple things that made whatever you did life giving not exhausting? Yes!

Real People: What I learned from real life (Greg and guests)

June 6, 2012

It really is about you - at least about what God is teaching you. And not just here, or through any so called 'religious' channel, but everywhere. What God has to show us is so big it won't fit into the little scraps of life we give God. So God pops up in all sorts of places in the guise of real life. Next Sunday I'm going to tee up the ball and let a few other everyday - and totally exceptional - Jacob's Well folks drive it home with what they've learned in real life.

Real People: What I learned driving a forklift (Greg)

June 1, 2012

I was first going to be a scientist, then a theologian and along the way got turned into a preacher. What I never figured I'd do was drive forklift, but a summer job doing that not only helped pay for college, it taught me some of the best life lessons I've ever received. Funny how God isn't restricted to the 'official channels' to give us what we need. God gets unleashed in the alleys behind the classroom. This Sunday I'll share some of what I learned driving forklift. What have you/are you learning on the side streets of your life? ~Greg
