Conversations That Matter 6: Living with Dying 2016.7.24

July 24, 2016

Why are some of the most basic facts of life so hard to talk about? Sex, money…and death. How could talking more openly about dying actually be life-giving? Does God bring something to the conversation beyond shallow platitudes? Whether it’s with our parents, our doctors, our kids, our friends….conversations about aging, disease and death come to us. Melissa Lock and friends will help us open up to these conversations that matter and see how taking a more honest look at dying gives glimpses of life at its fullest.

Conversations That Matter 5: Sending An Invitation 2016.7.17

July 18, 2016

July 17 – Sending an Invitation by Chris Lillehei

We need to talk… What does being a part of the Jacob’s Well community mean to the world around us? Do you share your Jacob’s Well experience with others? If not, why not? What would it look like if we shared the news about Jacob’s Well without pause or hesitation? We are often comfortable telling people about the movies that we love or the books that have impacted us greatly, but sometimes are hesitant to talk about what we experience on Sunday morning or in GroupLife. If this community is a place we value, isn’t it worth sharing with those in our communities? It is worth taking some time to talk about how and why we should have conversations about Jacob’s Well because it matters.

Conversations That Matter 3: Making Peace With Distractions 07.3.2016

July 18, 2016
July 3 – Making Peace with Distractions: We need to talk… Meditation is all the rage these days, but it’s just for calm people who have quiet houses and unbusy lives, right? Or maybe it will make our lives more like that peaceful Zen ideal… The reality is that the best mindfulness and meditation happens in the midst of your reality! Stephanie Vos shared these thoughts and practices at the Minnehaha Falls Bandstand. Maybe you need practice staying centered in a world that’s constantly spinning too.

Conversations That Matter 4: I <3 Stress 07.10.2016

July 13, 2016

We need to talk… We all know that stress can kill us.  But what if we have gotten stress all wrong?  What if avoiding stress is actually more dangerous to our health and happiness than embracing stress? In this conversation we’ll talk about how modern science and ancient wisdom pretty much see eye-to-eye on the hidden–and too often neglected–power of stress.  Check out this great talk from Jacob's Well native and local thought leader Nick Tasler.
