Down to the Studs | Do the rules still matter? | 5

Pathfinder Church | June 9, 2024 | Doug MaussThe Bible, particularly in the Old Testament, contains hundreds of laws; shalls and shall nots. Are they just a part of history, or should we still be trying to keep them?

Down to the Studs | How good is good enough for God? | 3

Pathfinder Church | May 26, 2024 | Doug MaussChristians know that we will have to answer to God for our deeds, so we hold ourselves and others to the standards laid out in the Bible. But it seems like the bar is impossibly high.

Down to the Studs | How can we make sense of the Bible? | 1

Pathfinder Church | May 19, 2024 | Dion GarrettPeople read the Bible in all sorts of different ways, so how are we supposed to make sense of it? We do our best to let it guide the lives that we construct, but what if we’re emphasizing the wrong things?

Living the Dream | What’s Better than Fairness? | 7

Pathfinder Church | May 12, 2024 | Doug MaussOur earliest complaint as children, and our enduring value as adults, is that life should be fair. Everyone should get what they deserve. But is perfect fairness the highest good, is there something even better—something we all wish we had instead?Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Living the Dream | What’s Better than Comfort? | 6

Pathfinder Church | May 5, 2024 | AJ MasticIt’s really nice to have comfortable things! A nice house, a quality car, constant access to the internet and our phones.

Living the Dream | What’s Better than Busy? | 5

Pathfinder Church | April 28, 2024 | Doug Mauss“Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” Our culture honors a good work ethic. It’s right to be diligent and work hard at what we do. And yet, this busy-ness becomes a taskmaster, demanding that we keep up the pace, in order to earn the good things in life.Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Living the Dream | What’s Better than Security? | 4

Pathfinder Church | April 21, 2024 | Dion GarrettThere are certain assets in life that obviously help smooth out our paths: money, power, resources, and talent. These are the powerful levers that help us feel secure in life. But the quest for security comes with costs, both for ourself and others.

Living the Dream | What’s Better than Independence? | 3

Pathfinder Church | April 14, 2024 | AJ MasticIt’s so good to be free. To be in control of your own life. To not have to do what anyone else tells you to do. And we often try to build a life that only depends on our own ability to be successful. But at what point does the “self-made” man need a little help?

Living the Dream | What’s Better than Being Invulnerable? | 2

Pathfinder Church | April 7, 2024 | Doug MaussBeing “unique” is a tricky dance. On the one hand, many of us would love to have extraordinary lives. On the other hand, very few of us want to be considered weird. How do we find a balance between making our mark and sticking out from the crowd, but also fitting in with the people you care about?Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Easter 2024 at Pathfinder Church

Pathfinder Church | March 31, 2024 | Dion GarrettWhat’s Better than Getting our Dreams?All of us have dreams for our lives, whether they be big or small. But dreams are tricky things. On the one hand, missing out on the life we’ve always wanted can lead to despair. On the other hand, as championship athletes can attest, succeeding at our dreams doesn’t necessarily bring life fulfillment, either. Is there a way to truly “live the dream” in a way that brings long-term life and joy?Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Knock-Off Spirituality | Before There Was “Sending Good Vibes Your Way…” | 4

Pathfinder Church | March 24, 2024 | AJ MasticWhen someone is suffering, it feels right to try to join them in their suffering, to somehow stand with them.  But lately the offering of “thoughts and prayers” to someone in a hardship has come to be seen as an empty and patronizing sentiment. But should those two things be linked, “thoughts and prayers?” What might prayer be able to accomplish for someone in need that no amount of thoughts could ever accomplish?  Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Knock-Off Spirituality | Before There Were Fortune Cookies | 3

Pathfinder Church | March 17, 2024 | Doug MaussWe all want guidance. We need it! Life is too confusing to navigate on our own. Some people have tried to find guidance looking to the stars and other heavenly bodies. Others have tried to interpret the meaning of various “signs from the universe.” But even if those entities were offering guidance, how do we know their counsel is trustworthy?  Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Knock-Off Spirituality | Before There Was Mindfulness… | 2

Knock-Off Spirituality | Before There Was Manifesting… | 1

Pathfinder Church | March 3, 2024 | AJ MasticWhat do you do when you want something, really want something? Do you set goals? Create a vision board? Write a letter to the universe? Manifesting is a practice that lies somewhere between spirituality and pseudo-science but even if it works, is it a good idea to get everything you want? Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

The All Y’all Doctrine | Even the Tax Collectors?! | 4

Pathfinder Church | February 25, 2024 | Dion GarrettGod’s values are so expansive that no individual person could pursue all of them, let alone hold them all in tension. Left to ourselves, we’ll prioritize the biblical values that come most easily to us, or are most attuned to our own lives and histories. How do we avoid making godly morality something that we each pick and choose for ourselves?  Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

The All Y’all Doctrine | Even the Lepers?! | 3

Pathfinder Church | February 18, 2024 | Doug MaussThe American experiment was to create a society not bound by the rigid structures of social class. And yet, it can be uncomfortable to socialize with people who are significantly wealthier—or significantly poorer—than we are. It only seems to promote resentment or envy! Which may be the reason we prefer to live and associate with others who are in the same career field, live in the same neighborhoods, and share the same economic class.  How could risking the discomfort—and all the potential faux pas—of associating with those far wealthier or poorer than we are, actually make life richer for all of us?Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

The All Y’all Doctrine | Even the Samaritans?! | 1

Pathfinder Church | February 4, 2024 | Doug MaussIt’s seemingly hard-wired into us to create loyalty groups. It’s easier to connect with someone who shares the same affinity for a sports team, patriotic fervor, or religious label. We sort ourselves into tribes, and narrow our frame of reference.

The Way Upstream | Patient Courage | 4

Pathfinder Church | November 19, 2023 | Dion GarrettAs religion continues to recede in America, a few faithful people are mourning the loss of its community and influence—but many powerful actors are eager to gobble up the market share and move on from religion entirely.

The Way Upstream | Winsome Witness | 1

Pathfinder Church | October 29, 2023 | Doug MaussIn what ways should Christians be different from the culture around them? Often, a Christian life looks the same as any other American life—we work the same jobs, share the same hobbies and interests, and spend our money on the same things. On the other hand, when Christians completely reject our culture, we look intolerant, mean, irrelevant, and unappealing.

Inspired 2023

Pathfinder Church | October 22, 2022 | Dion GarrettIt’s encouraging to see and rejoice in other people’s successes (just scroll through your Instagram stories), or to have them rejoice in yours. Or in times of struggle, to be able to “share” your struggles with others, knowing that they will be with you “in spirit.” But so few of us have a community that sees, values, and cares for us during ALL the ups and down in life!

But what if in doing so, we’re actually missing out on the full picture of Jesus that can only be seen through four separate stories? Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

The Lost Craft of Hard Conversations | Find the Better “Third Way” | 5

Pathfinder Church | February 26, 2023 | Doug MaussToo often we let our disagreements get boiled down to a binary: One side is right and the other side is wrong. The stress of conflict makes us rigid and controlling, and extremely difficult to find any sort of win/win outcome. It’s extremely difficult to master “the craft of hard conversations”! Sometimes, is it ok to settle for win/lose?Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

The Lost Craft of Hard Conversations | Go Slow—to Seek Dignity, not Solutions | 4

Pathfinder Church | February 19, 2023 | Dion GarrettBecause disagreement is difficult and painful, our natural tendency is to try to rush for resolution immediately. And the quickest resolution would always be for someone to cave: if other people would just change their mind and agree with us, everything would be fine! Or else, we can quickly dismiss our own needs or convictions in order to keep the peace! Is it possible to slow down enough for both sides to feel heard and valued? How can we avoid rushing to a quick fix that leaves someone getting steamrolled?Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

The Lost Craft of Hard Conversations | Be the Safer Person | 3

Pathfinder Church | February 12, 2023 | AJ MasticRelationships are tricky because people can cause us harm. In response to that threat, it’s tempting to withdraw, or lash out, or concede the issue, or try to change the other person for our own benefit.

Making clear that imperfect isn’t an impediment to wholeness, they travelled around the world to find wholeness themselves and to bring it to others. Their example is both inspiring and convicting, driving the question, “What will pursuing wholeness cost me?” Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Pathfinders: Past and Present - Ruth: God-Directed Journey (Week 4)

Pathfinder Church | July 31, 2022 | Dion GarrettRuth did a lot of questionable things on her journey, returning to her mother-in-law’s homeland after God delivered their family a heavy blow, courting the attention of a kinsman-redeemer to save her mother-in-law from disaster, and many other things. Along the way, God was directing her steps. Living a “God-directed journey” isn’t easy. You subject yourself to the judgment and confusion of people.

Pathfinders: Past and Present - Stephen & Philip: True to Life Approach (Week 2)

Pathfinder Church | July 17, 2022 | AJ MasticFocusing on the real-life needs of people is sometimes condemned as watered down or superficial. But a faith that does not help people with the stuff of life, isn’t very useful and certainly not transforming. Stephen and Philip were peers assigned to the seemingly “less spiritual” work of feeding widows, but their ministry became powerful. When “spiritual” is often equated with “other-worldly” concerns, is there ever a risk of us focusing too much on the stuff of “regular life”? Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

But when he became captured by the Gospel, he realized that the exclusivity and elitism of Pharisaical life was NOT in line with the heart of God. Paul’s life took a dramatic turn as he suffered a lot of misunderstanding and judgment to bring the Gospel to people that were seen as unlovable and far from God.

In owning, we find power and freedom.Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Past Forward - Root Patterns (Week 2)

Pathfinder Church | February 13, 2022 | Dion GarrettNone of us arrive as clean slates; we are products of those who came before us.

A Life Built to Last - Curated Influence (Week 5)

Pathfinder Church | January 30, 2022 | Dion GarrettWe think influence is dependent on status, power, and authority. And so, we often neglect to take action because we think it’s work meant for others (who have the status, power, and authority) to do.

A Life Built to Last - Crafted Relationships (Week 4)

Pathfinder Church | January 23, 2022 | Doug MaussFrom the earliest ages, we learn how to have relationships based on the relational patterns of the people who raise us. As we grow up and find new ways of relating, what we might not realize is that we also base our relationships with others on how we think God relates to us. Simply by looking at how we relate to others (stern, demanding, unforgiving or gracious, accepting, patient, and loving), we get a window into our deepest beliefs about God. How does a person shake off a lifetime of conditioning to approach relationships differently?Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Pathfinder Church | May 30, 2021 | Dion GarrettStating the obvious here: The Bible wasn’t written in English. Not only are translations across time tricky, but languages don’t always have equivalent words that easily convey meaning. Then you add translational philosophies into the mix (strict literal translations vs. more interpretative ones) and you end up with a lot of different versions of the same Bible. How do we resist the urge to shop for the translation that says what we like, and instead wrestle with what was actually being said?Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

The Good Book - Context is King–Why Context Matters (Week 2)

Pathfinder Church | May 23, 2021 | Doug MaussMost scriptural misunderstandings start in the same way: a verse is removed from its context. It shouldn’t surprise us that the practice creates problems, since it also creates problems in other parts of life. To get the clearest reading of Scripture we must also start looking not just at words or single verses, but looking at the greater context.

That’s shocking to many of us, but that just means that we first have to understand what kind of literature we’re reading before we can rightly interpret it.

In both cases, it’s in our best interests to care for the physical parts of creation, but they’re not very cooperative!

Lent Midweek | Taken down and Laid in the tomb

Pathfinder Church | March 24, 2021 | Melissa Harting & Doug MaussNow there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea, and he himself was waiting for the kingdom of God. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin. The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. - Luke 23:50-55Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Lent Midweek | Jesus Dies

Pathfinder Church | March 17, 2021 | David Jameson & Doug MaussTwo rebels were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left.  Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!” In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the king of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’”In the same way the rebels who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him. From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.”Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.” And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life." - Matthew 27:38-52Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the childless women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’ Then “‘they will say to the mountains, “Fall on us!” and to the hills, “Cover us!”’For if people do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry? - Luke 23:26-31Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Not only will all of our mistakes be forgiven, not only will our pain be erased, but God promises that he will redeem everything that is fallen, broken, defiled and ugly, and he will make it new. There are few things in life more powerful than knowing that in the middle of your ugliest most broken moments, God will turn your lumps of coal into diamonds.Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Lent Midweek | Jesus takes up his cross

Pathfinder Church | February 24, 2021 | Annalyse Erbst & Dion Garrett"Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him." - Matthew 27:27-31Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

Flipping the Iceberg - In My Failures - Forgiveness (Week 1)

Pathfinder Church | February 21, 2021 | Dion GarrettThe Grace of ForgivenessWhen you’ve really hurt someone, sinned against them, you realize how powerless you are. Because in those moments, you know there is absolutely nothing you can do to make things right again. In those moments, the only source of hope is that the other person would be kind enough to absolve you anyway, in spite of you. This is where our experience with grace begins. Jesus shows us that God doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve; that’s what this season is all about.Website | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram |  https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | http://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected] | https://pathfinderstl.orgOnline Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/givePodcasts | https://pathfinderstl.org/podcastsFacebook | https://facebook.com/pathfinderstlInstagram | https://instagram.com/pathfinderstlSt. John School | https://stjls.orgContact Us | [email protected]

According to Jesus, it’s a whole lifestyle, a way of living that leads us to a better, fuller life. How many of us are settling for crumbs of life by letting Jesus’s full offer go on misunderstood and unclaimed?

As we try to find the perfect gifts for people in our lives, we acknowledge that God’s “perfect gift” of Jesus is actually mind-blowing.

Open Doors

It’s natural to see yourself or your household as a closed off unit. After all, nobody else is responsible for taking care of you.

Intentional Play

In a “work hard, play hard” culture, sometimes you never get around to the “play” part. Worse, as Christians, ideas of being “holy” have long been associated with being a stick-in-the-mud.

Deeper Conversations

So often our conversations are limited to just getting through the day, week, or month. We focus on the urgent tasks or the disruptive news cycles.

In life, many things may frighten us… but one of the most prevalent sources of anxiety comes through all the choices we have!

State of the Mind

After ignoring the topic of mental health for a long time, maybe we’re finally ready to admit that it’s not working for us—our minds are not as healthy as they could be!

Intrinsic vs. Market Value

In this world, where we are valued by what we do, our identity comes from what we accomplish. This hellish belief causes us to strive endlessly to live up to some external standard, or to gauge our self-worth by how well we compare to those around us.
