This week we discover a new creature that lurks within the heart of each of us. It hides in the shadows and then suddenly emerges to unleash its fury at anyone and anything close to it. Like a Phantom of MADness, Anger is a universal human experience. It is an intense emotional reaction that may express itself through frustration, irritability, annoyance, impatience, blowing of steam, shouting, intimidating, insensitivity, fretting, quitting, back-biting, and depression. Left unchecked, this creature will rob you of the joy of living, destroy your world and the lives of others.Learn More
In our Creature Feature series we are looking at the monsters that threaten to ruin and destroy our lives. We found out last week they are creatures that lurk within our hearts that must be dealt with so we can become the best version of ourselves. “Guilt” was called a Gorilla in our first session. Guilt is best described as living with an attitude of “I owe you.” As we studied, we exposed guilt to the light and found out that our debts have been paid by Jesus. In this follow up, we take another step and in Gorilla Buster find out how to make sure the gorilla of guilt, goes away and stays away… forever.

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.

Today we look at the weather forecast a bit and discover some insights into how we might do that just a little bit better.Learn More
