If you don’t deal with IT – IT will deal with you. This week we begin to explore and discover a menacing creature that lurks within our hearts. It is a creature we have all faced. Some have dealt with it, some have tried and failed, and others have been able to move beyond it. Like a gorilla it moves through our lives and threatens us and intimidates us… perhaps those days can be over.Learn More
As we conclude our series on Climate Change – we have discovered how each of us are called to change the climate of the places we go. In the lives of others we have a unique opportunity to be a thermostat instead of a thermometer.

Each person has a climate as they interact with others—sunny, stormy, or even icy. And the current climate dictates the forecast. The struggle is that many of us are unaware of the emotional climates we carry around with us. However, as a follower of Jesus that is called to touch and change the world, we have a calling to impact and even change the climate of the places we go and the people we meet. How does your life affect the climate of the world you live in?
