You & Me: Intimacy

January 28, 2013

Don't go getting all nervous, we can talk about this with our clothes on. It's funny that we react this way to that simple word: Intimacy. We value it so much, but we really don't want to talk about it - at least not in public. Intimacy is something we need. God intends for us to build bonds of trust to glue our relationships together through it. So if you are confused by the over-sexualizing of intimacy you see in the media, the abuse of it you hear in the news and are generally a little freaked out over it... well then it's time to talk.

You & Me: Vulnerability

January 21, 2013

That's something no one wants to be. Vulnerability is a sign of weakness, it means you aren't in control and might get hurt. Power is better because it means we don't have to be vulnerable. Except God, whom we'd assume is powerful, got really vulnerable by being born as Jesus. Is God telling us something? Does vulnerability have a place in relationships? I'll tip my hat and tell you that if Jesus showed us anything, it is that vulnerability is where relationships are forged.

You & Me: Us

January 15, 2013

You get into all sorts of relationships all the time and whether you are super excited about each one or have no choice, you probably aren't hoping that these people make your life miserable. No, you want them to enrich it! But do you realize that the difference between those two outcomes is up to you? Not them? There aren't any easy answers, but God has a vision for how to be "Us" in the world.

You & Me

January 9, 2013

I hope you were given some great presents for Christmas, but you know, cool as it may be, all that stuff doesn't matter much if there is tension at home, conflict at work or fallings out with friends. Relationships, you & me, that's what really counts. And no matter how hard we've tried those connections always need more attention. There are no secrets, no '3 Steps to Relational Bliss', but there are recurring themes we can dig into that make relationships healthier. Join us in GroupLifeand each Sunday in January as we wrestle with some of the best parts of being You & Me.
