Free Money: Shame Busters

February 27, 2017

Should churches be groups that talk about money? Jesus sure talked a lot about it. Maybe rather than adding to the shame churches can deconstruct shame and helping us work together to use the money that's been entrusted to us to help shape the world around us in life-giving shame-free ways.

Free Money (Week 3)

February 27, 2017

February 26 – FREE MONEY (WOW) from what you have to do, so that it is free for what you want to do. Did that make any sense? Let’s try it another way: The “Wow” of your money is that it can not only pay the bills and afford you some nice things, but it can help you shape the world more like you sense the  world should look. We don’t get to this stage with our money easily, however. Let’s talk about what it takes and how it happens.

Why Do We Talk About Money?

February 21, 2017

What's your least favorite subject to hear a pastor talk about? Well shave off some of the crazy fringes and money probably at least makes the short list. Greg Meyer and Chris Tripolino talk about why it is that we dive into the subject of money as a church regularly.

Free Money (Week 2)

February 19, 2017

February 19 – FREE MONEY would never solve all your problems. A budget and a get-out-of-debt plan would help, but they won’t entirely solve the problem either. That’s because it isn’t just about the money you have or don’t have, it’s about your unique story and predisposition towards it. You’ll need to come to grips with those before money will start serving you, instead of you dancing to its demands. It’s time to start setting yourself FREE from MONEY!

Free Money (Week 1)

February 12, 2017

FREE MONEY sounds so tempting, and it should be, not because it would let you have enough, but because if you could free money from all the games you play with it you might just find a whole new perspective on life. From our years working and living together as a community one of the biggest problem areas we’ve noticed is money. It messes up just about everything. It’s time to talk and put money in it’s place so you can go on living.

Participation Trophies and Whiplash

February 7, 2017

Greg Meyer, Melissa Lock, & Chris Tripolino try to bring a little wisdom to the whiplash we get swinging between the hollow rewards and powerless predicaments we find ourselves in as we reach for growth, not only in ourselves, but in others too!

My Healthy Real & Ideal Message to Me

February 6, 2017

During our Feb 5, 2017 gathering everyone could write a healthy affirmation about their real & ideal to put on their mirror. It's a reflection of the person God sees in each of us. We also invited them to text them in - and they did! We put them all up on the screens so we could read them together... And here it is! Enjoy. 

Feel free to adopt any of these for yourself, or make up your own. And if you do, feel free to send it on to us at info@jacobs-well.net

Unstuck

February 5, 2017

Unstuck - You know what stuck feels like. Stuck in jobs, relationships, situations, even in how we see ourselves. Greg Meyer is joined by Hannah Davidson as we revisit one of our key tools that helps us straddle the great chasm of who we are and who we can be; of what we might look like to ourselves who see too much, and what God sees which is brighter than we might ask or imagine. We're going to work on getting and staying unstuck by understanding the creative tension between the real and the ideal.
