Connecting Across: Abilities

Connecting Across: Abilities - Ken WetmoreEach of us has been created uniquely. That means we all have different abilities. When abilities differ from the norm, exclusion can happen intentionally and, more often, unintentionally. As Christians, we are called to remove barriers and value each person just as they were created. So, let’s talk about connecting with those who have abilities that are not typical.Let us know your thoughts by reaching out and joining the conversation with your questions and comments using the information below:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]#ThisIsWholeLifeSUBSCRIBE NOW to our weekly companion podcast, Speaking of Grace, to listen to the message this episode is based on and where our pastors and guest speakers invite you into a lifelong friendship with God.

Connecting Across: Religious Beliefs

Connecting Across: Religious Beliefs - Ken WetmoreReligion is known for dividing. Whether it is Christians vs. Muslims or Catholics vs. Protestants, there is a strong tendency to not connect with people who do not share our beliefs about God. Is it possible to connect with another person who holds religious beliefs that conflict with our beliefs? Is that even what God wants? Making the connection across religious beliefs isn’t about winning an argument; it’s about loving another human being created in God’s image, just like us.Let us know your thoughts by reaching out and joining the conversation with your questions and comments using the information below:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]#ThisIsWholeLifeSUBSCRIBE NOW to our weekly companion podcast, Speaking of Grace, to listen to the message this episode is based on and where our pastors and guest speakers invite you into a lifelong friendship with God.

Connecting Across: Cultures - Freud Braz

Connecting Across: Cultures - Freud BrazCulture is the way a collective group of people have decided to do life. As anyone who has traveled extensively knows, there are a lot of different ways to do life. At WholeLife we have a lot of different cultures represented. Ideas about what is good food, what is good music, and even what is good Theology are influenced by the culture we were raised in. It can be easy to only connect with people who share the same culture, but our lives are enriched when we deliberately choose the discomfort and connect with people from cultures different from our own.Let us know your thoughts by reaching out and joining the conversation with your questions and comments using the information below:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]#ThisIsWholeLifeSUBSCRIBE NOW to our weekly companion podcast, Speaking of Grace, to listen to the message this episode is based on and where our pastors and guest speakers invite you into a lifelong friendship with God.

Connecting Across: Socioeconomic Differences

Connecting Across: Socioeconomic Differences - Ken WetmoreSocial class and income keep people apart. Whether it’s jealousy or condescension, we often have a hard time connecting with people who aren’t in the same social and economic class.

We feel pretty secure in God’s grace when we check all the right boxes, but what happens when we fall short? The story of Rahab in the Old Testament tells us that a woman who hadn’t checked any boxes believed and not only received God’s grace, but was given a place of honor in the lineage of Jesus. The grace that God offered to this woman paved the way for Jesus to extend grace to the whole world –and we don’t have to get our act together before that grace is extended to us.Watch the message that this&nbsp;episode is based on our website:&nbsp;https://wholelife.church/mediaTo find out more about WholeLife Church, visit our website:&nbsp; https://WholeLife.Church#WholeLifePodcast #WholeLifeReflections #ThisIsWholeLife #ThisIsUS #WeAreFamily #FollowMe #HolyEncounters

Arise to Christmas: Arise to an Unexpected Savior

Arise to Christmas: Arise to an Unexpected Savior - Ken WetmoreSometimes we find the greatest love in the most unexpected places. Surely, as the shepherds, magi, and others viewed Jesus, they must have felt surprised that Israel’s Messiah was a helpless baby born into a poor family. However, this is how God loved this world, He gave His only Son so that anyone willing to embrace the unexpected will be embracing the Giver of Life.One of our #WholeLifeReflections this week asked: What keeps you from arising to visit Jesus?

Arise to Christmas: Arise to Unexpected Decisions (The Malingering Magi)

Arise to Christmas: Arise to Unexpected Decisions (The Malingering Magi) - Ken WetmoreThroughout the Christmas story we encounter people who are called to arise to faith. The Magi are one of the greatest examples of this. They exhibited faith by believing the Scriptures and following a star to Jesus. They showed their faith through the gifts they brought. They acted in faith to leave by a different route when told to do so by God in a dream. This Christmas, arise to have faith in the Messiah's call to you.One of our #WholeLifeReflections this week asked: Who do you “write off” as not having any religious wisdom and/or relationship with God?Let us know your response by reaching out to us with your questions and comments using the information below:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] NOW to our weekly podcast Speaking of Grace to listen to the message this podcast was based on - https://speaking-of-grace.captivate.fm/listenlinksOur weekly message from the WholeLife Church and all of our #WholeLifeTakeAways are in each episodes ‘show notes’ for you to listen to, discuss, and share with family and friends.

Arise to Christmas: Arise to Unexpected Blessings (Elizabeth & Zechariah)

Arise to Christmas: Arise to Unexpected Blessings (Elizabeth &amp; Zechariah) - Ken WetmoreJesus' first Advent was foretold by prophecy and was the hope of Israel. Zechariah and Elizabeth longed for the Messiah but also ached for a child of their own. Little did they know that, even after they had given up hope for that child, God had not forgotten them. In meeting their longing for a child, God would also provide for the preparation and arrival of the Messiah. Unexpected blessings, indeed. This Christmas, arise to the unexpected blessings God has planned for you.Reach out to us with your questions and comments using the information below:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] the Board Game Group here: https://wholelifechurch.churchcenter.com/groups/wholelife-groups/board-game-group SUBSCRIBE NOW to our weekly podcast Speaking of Grace to listen to the message this podcast was based on - https://speaking-of-grace.captivate.fm/listenlinksOur weekly message from the WholeLife Church and all of our #WholeLifeTakeAways are in each episodes ‘show notes’ for you to listen to, discuss, and share with family and friends.

Arise to Thanksgiving - Ken WetmoreIt's Thanksgiving, so it's that time of year when we count our blessings. However, is the way we usually count our blessings the full extent of what God means when the Bible tells us to be thankful?

Make the time this week to tell them.&nbsp;Think back to a few of the most painful experiences in your life. Can you find anything in those experiences to be grateful about?

Great Question: Uncomfortable With the Comforter

Great Question: Uncomfortable With the Comforter - Ken WetmoreI understand God is found in the Trinity as Father, Son, and Spirit. However, it seems that most Christians – and most churches – are only comfortable talking about and seeking an experience with the Father and Son. Why does it seem like there is hesitancy to fully experience the Spirit when Jesus told his followers that the Spirit would be our closest connection to God? How can the church most faithfully engage with God’s Spirit in private and corporate worship?What stood out to you this week?&nbsp; Something we said, didn’t, or could have said in more detail?

Great Question: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Great Question: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow - Ken WetmoreI hear questions all the time about the great difference between the angry “Old Testament God” and the loving “New Testament God.” So much of the Bible is poetic, metaphoric, and prophetic. If it was written by people within a variety of ancient cultures without benefit of the scientific and technological understandings of today, how can we understand these inconsistencies? How literally should we take Scripture?”Our #WholeLifeReflection for this week asked: What do you do when the Bible conflicts with evidence/science? Do you believe the Bible is right and we aren’t understanding the evidence/science correctly, or do you believe that the Bible is wrong, or do you have another way of looking at it?What stood out to you this week?&nbsp; Something we said, didn’t, or could have said in more detail?

We Are Family: Marriages Arise

We Are Family: Marriages AriseIn American culture, we have been taught to fight for our rights and to push back on those who stand in our way. Yet the Bible has a repeated message that, in the right context, submission is a good thing. Jesus submitted to the will of God. We are to submit to Jesus. While some would take Paul’s words in Ephesians and twist them to create male dominance/headship, it is clear from the passage that Paul intends that husbands and wives submit to each other without one dominating the other. In other words, the new Christian life takes us back to the Garden of Eden before sin entered, where Adam and Eve lived in equality.One of our #WholeLifeReflections asked: What views of marriage and/or practices in marriage do you need to rethink after hearing this sermon on Ephesians 5?What stood out to you this week?&nbsp; Something we said, didn’t say, or could have said in more detail?

We Are Family: Singles Arise

We Are Family: Singles AriseIt can be very lonely being a single Christian. Churches are generally directed toward the married and their families. There can also be the subtle message that, if you don’t get married, you are never complete. This is a very different idea than the message Jesus and Paul share in the New Testament. According to them, while marriage is good, singleness is better. So, whether you are happily single or looking to get married, we’re celebrating you this week and discussing how to live the best single life.One of our #WholeLifeReflections asked?

We Are Family: Arise to Education

We Are Family: Arise to EducationThere is a false narrative that science and Christianity aren’t compatible. The Bible teaches us that wisdom is one of the most worthwhile pursuits.

As a new school year begins, we should remember that learning isn’t just for the young; it is for us all.&nbsp;One of our #WholeLifeReflections asked?

Voices of WLC - Jordan Soliday: Arise to an Unhurried Life

Voices of WLC - Jordan Soliday: Arise to an Unhurried LifeWhat if our society’s devotion to speed and efficiency—not only in pace, but in thinking and behavior—is the primary culprit for the crises of today? What if hurried leadership is the cause? In the words of psychologist Carl Jung, “Hurry is not of the devil; hurry is the devil.” What does the Bible and various modern industry leaders teach about the re-emergent practice of “slowing,” and how can it transform us into the 21st century disciples for Jesus that our hurried world needs to see?One of our #WholeLifeReflections this week asked:&nbsp; What if as Seventh-day Adventists our scope of the sabbath and its role in the end times has been too narrow?What stood out to you this week?&nbsp; Something we said, didn’t say, or could have said in more detail?

Love At Work: The Scarlett Letter

Love At Work: The Scarlett Letter - by Ken WetmoreOf all the commandments that can be broken, arguably this one has the most stigma, is applied the least fairly, and is the least understood. The tendency is for Christians to espouse sexual purity but to never clearly and understandably define it and why it matters so much to God.

Love At Work: Boxing God

Love At Work:&nbsp; Boxing God by Ken WetmoreWe use boxes to contain and hold things. Idols are a form of a box. They are used to create limits for what they represent. God asks us not to worship idols because false idols lead us away from God, and even idols that represent God lead us to place limits on who God is.One of our #WholeLifeReflections this week asked:&nbsp; Is your understanding of who God is different today than it was 10 years ago? How?

ARISE to Old Testament Spiritual Justice

ARISE to Old Testament Spiritual JusticeThe Old Testament points toward the arrival of God on earth through the birth of Jesus. Jesus’ purpose was to illuminate the true character of God, and his life clearly taught that mercy, plus justice, equal righteousness. One cannot be a true follower of Jesus and not ARISE to the concern for justice and mercy.One of our #WholeLifeReflections this week asked:&nbsp; If a large part of believing God and being obedient to God means being kind, fair, and equitable to others, how are you doing at believing and being obedient?That’s a tough one!&nbsp; How are you doing at believing and being obedient under that definition?&nbsp; We would love to hear your story!&nbsp; Reach out to us with your questions and comments using the information below:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] NOW to our weekly podcast Speaking of Grace to listen to the message this podcast was based on - https://speaking-of-grace.captivate.fm/listenOur weekly message from the WholeLife Church and all of our #WholeLifeTakeAways are in each episodes ‘show notes’ for you to listen, discuss, and share with family and friends.

Threatened By Love

Threatened By Love – Bernie AndersonJesus spoke in the synagogue and by the end of his message about love and justice for the marginalized, he was almost thrown off a cliff! Seems odd, but God’s love is threatening whenever we decide we’re the exclusive recipients of it. For followers of Christ, we stand with Jesus and His threatening love. We stand with the marginalized, poor, and broken. Whatever violence comes, we do as Jesus did and continue to “walk through the crowd” and go on our way.&nbsp;One of our #WholeLifeReflections this week asked:&nbsp; What false narratives have you bought into that have affected your perspective of yourself? of those around you?Reach out to us with your questions and comments using the information below:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] SKIN-BLACK SOUL by Sandra Johnson: https://amzn.to/34nFEMyOur Episodes on Racism (Share this Link!):&nbsp; https://player.captivate.fm/collection/528d4f43-78cd-4c72-a767-91e759498e81SUBSCRIBE NOW to our weekly podcast Speaking of Grace to listen to the message this podcast was based on - https://speaking-of-grace.captivate.fm/listenOur weekly message from the WholeLife Church and all of our #WholeLifeTakeAways are in each episodes ‘show notes’ for you to listen, discuss, and share with family and friends.

ARISE With Confidence

ARISE With Confidence – Ken WetmoreWe live in a time when it’s a real challenge to know what or whom to believe. We regularly make presumptions based on our personal biases. However, when we have doubts and questions, there is one constant, and that is the life of Jesus. Even when the way of Jesus seems unreasonable, difficult, or even impossible, he calls us to ARISE and believe that, in him, all things are possible.One of our #WholeLifeReflections this week asked:&nbsp; What causes you to lack confidence in Jesus?&nbsp;Reach out to us with your questions and comments using the information below:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] NOW to our weekly podcast Speaking of Grace to listen to the message this podcast was based on - https://speaking-of-grace.captivate.fm/listenOur weekly message from the WholeLife Church and all of our #WholeLifeTakeAways are in each episodes ‘show notes’ for you to listen, discuss, and share with family and friends.

ARISE With Peace

ARISE With Peace – Jeff CinquemaniIt’s impossible for us to see into the future, and that’s probably a good thing. However, sometimes we find ourselves desperate to understand our current situation. We are called to trust, and we are invited to find freedom in God’s sovereignty. In the midst of our darkest storms or our brightest mornings, Jesus asks us to ARISE and find peace in his presence.&nbsp;One of our #WholeLifeReflections this week asked:&nbsp; In the sermon, we talked about four areas where Jesus provides avenues of strength and comfort in our pursuit of peace.&nbsp;They were:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; A. Jesus knows, experiences, and understands our sorrow and&nbsp;grief.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; B. Jesus is invested and involved in working out of our best&nbsp;interests.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; C. Jesus knows the bigger picture; he sees the roadmap and has been down that path.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; D. Jesus has the power to change our present internal and&nbsp;external reality.Which of these areas provides the most strength and comfort?

ARISE With Trust

ARISE With Trust – Ken WetmoreIf nothing else, 2021 taught us we are not in control. Finding ourselves in the third year of shutdowns and restrictions caused frustration and a desperate need for autonomy. As we consider the Mission and Vision of WholeLife Church, what can we learn from this past year about the fragility of human solutions and the need to trust the One who invites us to ARISE, pick up our “mats” and walk?

Love Is...All About Truth & Justice

Love Is…All About Truth &amp; Justice – Ken Wetmore It isn’t just Superman who put Truth and Justice together. In 1 Corinthians 13:7, Paul writes that love never rejoices about injustice but instead rejoices when the truth wins. If we are to love like Jesus, we can never be happy--or worse--apathetic when we see injustice. God’s people are to fight for truth and justice in this world, even if it may never fully come about until Jesus returns.&nbsp;One of this week's #WholeLifeReflections asked: What does it look like for you to rejoice with Jesus when he wins out? (If you missed the message please make sure you find out Ken’s interpretation and definition of ‘when Jesus wins out’ - use the link below for Speaking of Grace to listen now).What do you think about rejoicing with Jesus when he wins out?

Love Is...Not A Grudge Holder

Love Is…Not A Grudge Holder – Ken Wetmore When Jesus told his disciples to forgive others 70 times 7, he wasn’t suggesting we keep a tally board. He was suggesting we are to forgive so much that we can’t keep track of how much we have forgiven. The happiest people are those who are able to let go of the scoreboard and hold onto God’s love...One of this weeks #WholeLifeReflections asked: What would it look like if you eliminated the phrase, “Yeah, but you . . .”?

Love Is...Flexible

Love Is…Flexible – Ken WetmoreLove does not demand its own way. In other words, love is flexible. It allows others to exercise freedom. This does not mean there are no consequences. It simply means that true love is an open hand, not a closed hand. Someone once said that you can hold more sand with an open hand than with a hand made into a fist.&nbsp;One of this week's #WholeLifeReflections was less a question and more a challenge which read: Take a few minutes each day this week to visualize Jesus' selflessness for you as He willingly went to the cross for you.

Love Is...Not Boastful

Love Is…Not Boastful – Ken WetmoreGuy Kawasaki, venture capitalist, author, and chief evangelist for Apple, once said, “If you don't toot your own horn, don't complain that there's no music.” Self-confidence carefully mixed with humility is a good thing, but without humility, self-confidence can quickly turn into arrogance, and from there into bragging that promotes one’s self at the expense of others. No wonder Paul put bragging and arrogance in the love-killer column. Find out the path to healthy self-worth without killing love in the process.There weren’t any #WholeLifeReflections for this week but reach out to us with your questions and comments using the information below:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] NOW to our weekly podcast Speaking of Grace to listen to the message this podcast was based on - https://speaking-of-grace.captivate.fm/listenOur weekly message from the WholeLife Church and all of our #WholeLifeReflections are in each episodes ‘show notes’ for you to listen, discuss, and share with family and friends.

Love Is...Not Jealous

Love Is…Not Jealous – Ken WetmoreJealousy is a love killer.&nbsp; In North Carolina, an imported plant called Kudzu spreads quickly, destroys all other vegetation, and is difficult to eradicate. Jealousy is a lot like Kudzu. It quickly destroys relationships and, once introduced, is difficult to overcome. This week we’ll explore the cost of jealousy and the solution to eradicating it.This week one of our #WholeLifeReflections asked was more ‘advice’ than a question but seemed appropriate as our choice for this week: Ask God to help you turn over your jealousy and envy to Him.How has God helped you with your jealousy or envy?

Love Is...Patient and Kind

Love Is…Patient and Kind – Ken WetmoreWhat are you willing to suffer for another person? Patience is defined as being “ able to accept or tolerate delays, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.” Certainly, this is something we see displayed in Jesus' life. Today, Jesus is asking his family to be patient with family members who make life difficult. The Good News is this is a gift of the Holy Spirit for those who ask.This week our #WholeLifeReflections asked 4 questions that were thematically significant and so we gave all 4!: With whom do you struggle to be patient in your life?Without placing the blame on the other person(s), why do you think you are impatient with them?How could you be kind to this person(s)?Stop and pray for the person(s) you’ve been thinking of, and ask God to help you be patient and kind in your relationship with them.Did these reflections individually or collectively cause you to stop and pray as in Q4? Let us know by voicemail or text (by text you may remain anonymous as there are no contact lists associated with this number), and we will share by reading your comments or playing your voicemail on next week’s episode.■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] NOW to our message podcast Speaking of Grace - https://speaking-of-grace.captivate.fm/listenOur weekly message from the WholeLife Church and all of our #WholeLifeReflections are in each episodes ‘show notes’ for you to listen, discuss, and share with family and friends.

The Messy Middle

The Messy Middle – John MondayInstead of giving answers, God places us in complex, messy, fraught relationships and tells us, “Love and trust me as I have loved and trusted you. And love and trust each other.” It’s not for us to help God achieve his goals; it’s our job and privilege to love each other, to hold one another’s hand in the pain, the joy, the confusion... in the mess.This week one of our #WholeLifeReflections asked: Are you comfortable with believing that some of your personal doctrines might be wrong?Let us know by voicemail or text (by text you may remain anonymous as there are no contact lists associated with this number), to 407-965-1607 or send it in an email to - [email protected] and we will share by reading your comments or playing your voicemail on next week’s episode.■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] NOW to our message podcast Speaking of Grace.

Great Question: Does God Cause Pain and Suffering?

Great Question 4: Does God Cause Pain and Suffering? – Ken WetmoreConsidering, the story of Hagar and Sarah: &nbsp;In the Genesis version, there is a lot of difficult complexity - for instance, God sends Hagar back into bondage then tells Abraham to listen to Sarah and cast Hagar and Ishmael into the wilderness. Then, Paul does a REALLY horrible retelling of this story in Galatians. He makes a point we all like - that faith trumps the law - but he does it in a way that has resulted in much Inter-religious strife, gender oppression, etc. Why do all of these horrible things seem sanctioned by, or even motivated by, God?This week one of our #WholeLifeReflections asked: Does everything God does in the Bible have to make sense in order for you to believe that God is good?Let us know why you attend WholeLife Church by voicemail or text (by text you may remain anonymous as there are no contact lists associated with this number), to 407-965-1607 or send it in an email to - [email protected] and I will share by reading your comments or playing your voicemail on next week’s episode.■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] REFERENCE: ‘Paul Behaving Badly: Was the Apostle a Racist, Chauvinist Jerk?https://www.amazon.com/Paul-Behaving-Badly-Apostle-Chauvinist/dp/0830844724/ref=sr_1_1?crid=OSP6NPKLY643&amp;dchild=1&amp;keywords=paul+behaving+badly&amp;qid=1631687785&amp;s=books&amp;sr=1-1SUBSCRIBE NOW to our message podcast Speaking of Grace.

Great Question: Jesus vs Denomination?

Great Question 3: Jesus vs Denomination? – Ken Wetmore(Part 1) How do we, as a church, stay focused on Jesus when so many in our denomination believe that our mission is to fixate on major doctrinal issues, political hot potatoes, and/or cultural preferences?(Part 2) As someone not raised Seventh-day Adventist, I have embraced the warmth and freedom I have found at WholeLife church. However, I have heard that our church is different from other Adventist churches. What am I missing if this is not the norm?This week one of our #WholeLifeReflections asked: Why do you attend WholeLife?This might be the easiest question we’ve ever asked but maybe not the simplest.

Great Question: Man of God?

Great Question 1: Man of God? – Ken WetmoreIn 1 Kings 13, the “man of God” from Samaria lies to the man of God from Judah with lethal consequences. How can he be a man of God and do such terrible things?&nbsp; The Bible does not shy away from differentiating between true prophets and false prophets, so it implies the lying prophet is a true prophet in relationship with God. How can his title and behavior be reconciled? How is it possible to be both a fully committed God follower and, at the same time, believe and share things that are not true?This week one of our #WholeLifeReflections asked: Are there any beliefs in your life you are just taking on someone else’s word but haven’t studied for yourself?So, are you a ‘take them at their word, person?

This Is US: Worship

SERIES: THIS IS US: Worship – Ken WetmoreWho you worship and how you worship are at the heart of the Bible’s message. Fighting over worship styles misses what true worship is all about. True worship is found in the truth, as it is in Jesus, and our spirits connecting with God’s Spirit. When we do this, everything else will fall into place, and we will one day find ourselves gathered around the throne of God with others from every race, nation and language, worshipping together forever.This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: Do you view Sabbath as a once-a-week day to get “living water” or a celebration of the “living water” you have had flowing out of you all week long?So, how do you view Sabbath? What have you struggled with or what has become your ‘celebration’ that holds you over all week long? We would love to hear from you to learn and walk this walk together.

This Is US: Grace

SERIES: THIS IS US: Grace – Ken WetmoreThey say you can’t choose your family, but that isn’t the case. Adoption is one of the most beautiful and loving acts because the one doing the adopting is choosing a specific person to be a part of their family. God has adopted us. We are a part of God’s family. We have all the rights and privileges that come with that adoption. We have done nothing to deserve it. That is grace.This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: Think about who needs your grace?This is less about an answer and response as it is that we would love to hear how God has lead you in the past or is currently leading in your life with extending grace.

This Is US: Forgiveness

SERIES:&nbsp; THIS IS US:&nbsp; Forgiveness – Ken WetmoreDefining forgiveness is not as simple as Googling the definition. Truly understanding and practicing forgiveness is layered, complex, multi-faceted, and often counterintuitive. It is anything but easy. In spite of this, in multiple places in the Gospel Jesus sets forgiveness of our fellow human beings as a condition for receiving the forgiveness of God. The Lord’s Prayer holds the key to this seemingly impossible mandate from Jesus.&nbsp;One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:&nbsp; Think about a person you forgave. What emotions did you experience when you forgave them? What helped you forgive them?&nbsp;This is another tough one to share, but we would love to hear and grow with you through our stories.&nbsp; So, let us know by using voicemail or text (by text you may remain anonymous as there are no contact lists associated with our text number so we won’t know who you are), or use our email below:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] To Live: How Forgiveness Can Save Your Life, by Dick Tibbits - https://bit.ly/ForgiveToLiveBook&nbsp;Basic Concepts of Forgiveness. Patsy Rodriguez. Definition: Forgiveness is a decision to give up your perceived or actual right to get even with, or hold in debt, someone who has wronged you.
Forgiving is not a way to avoid pain, but rather to heal pain.We forgive people for what they have done, never for what they are.We cannot forgive a wrong unless we first blame the person who wronged us. We do not excuse the person we forgive; we blame the person we forgive.Forgiving is a journey. The deeper the wound, the longer the journey usually takes. It may require persistence.The perpetrator does not get to decide how quickly forgiveness should happen.Forgiveness does not necessarily mean reconciliation.We do not forgive because we are supposed to; we forgive so we can be healed.SUBSCRIBE NOW to our message podcast Speaking of Grace.&nbsp; Our weekly message from the WholeLife Church and all of our #WholeLifeTakeAways are in each episodes ‘show notes’ for you to listen, discuss, and share with family and friends.

Episode 265: This is US: Acceptance

SERIES:&nbsp; THIS IS US:&nbsp; Forgiveness – Ken WetmoreFred “Mister” Rogers has been called the champion of radical acceptance. A Presbyterian minister, Mister Rogers took his cues about acceptance from Jesus. Jesus is the original champion of radical acceptance.&nbsp;Acceptance is not the endpoint of a relationship. It is the beginning. It allows transformation to occur in God’s time and God’s way.&nbsp;One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:&nbsp; How do you struggle to accept?

Episode 264: This Is US: Love

SERIES:&nbsp; This Is USJuneteenth celebrates the emancipation of Blacks enslaved unjustly in the United States. On this day, it is right to reflect on God’s core value: love. The Bible is so adamant about the centrality of love that John does not write that it is one of many attributes of God, but instead writes “God is love.” God showed what love is when he became one of us, lived with us, and then died in our place. His invitation to us is to join him in selfless love that gives freedom to the oppressed, marginalized, and enslaved.We didn’t have any #WholeLifeTakeAways this week but if you had any comments or questions about today’s episode, please let us know why be reaching out using one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] US LIVE FOR ‘THE LOOP’! &nbsp;Every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. EST our interactive worship service goes live to the internet to engage with you!&nbsp; Ask questions, submit videos or ideas so that we can all grow closer as a community of believers.&nbsp; You can attend in person or online at www.WholeLife.Church/LIVE.&nbsp; Please login to the ‘chatroll’ chat feature so we can meet you personally and take your thoughts and questions!SUBSCRIBE NOW to our message podcast Speaking of Grace.&nbsp; Our weekly message from the WholeLife Church and all of our #WholeLifeTakeAways are in each episodes ‘show notes’ for you to listen, discuss, and share with family and friends.

Episode 263: I Am Ken Wetmore...We Are WholeLife Church

SERIES:&nbsp; THIS IS US - ’I Am Ken Wetmore…We Are WholeLife Church’ – &nbsp;Ken WetmoreWhere I (Ken Wetmore) grew up in North Carolina, the quickest way to get to know someone was to find out who their parents were. That’s because every family has values. Anyone who knows the family has a pretty good idea of what they can expect from members of that family. In John 14:9, Jesus tells his disciples that, if they know him, they know the Father. Over two thousand years later, Jesus wants the same to be true of us: If the world knows us, they know the Father.&nbsp;One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways for this week asked:&nbsp; How do your values align with the values of WholeLife Church (love, acceptance, forgiveness, grace, the Bible, worship, and participation)? How are you practicing those values?&nbsp;So, what values do you have that align with ours here at WholeLife Church and how are you practicing them?&nbsp; We would love to hear of just your favorite or most fun to practice so we can share and learn with each other!&nbsp;■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] US LIVE FOR ‘THE LOOP’!&nbsp;Please join us again on June 19th as special guest host Randy Magray our Podcast Producer at WholeLife Church will be the host!&nbsp; Every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. EST our interactive worship service goes live to the internet to engage with you!&nbsp; Ask questions, submit videos or ideas so that we can all grow closer as a community of believers.&nbsp; You can attend in person or online at www.WholeLife.Church/LIVE.&nbsp; Please login to the ‘chatroll’ chat feature so we can meet you personally and take your thoughts and questions!&nbsp;SUBSCRIBE NOW to our message podcast Speaking of Grace.&nbsp; Our weekly message from the WholeLife Church and all of our #WholeLifeTakeAways are in each episodes ‘show notes’ for you to listen, discuss, and share with family and friends.

Episode 262: Eyes Of Empathy

‘Eyes Of Empathy’ – by Jeff CinquemaniNicodemus, the Samaritan woman at the well, and the man who sat paralyzed by a superstitious pool—each time Jesus looks into their questions and poses another question that digs deep into the real issue. As a way of showing us to look beyond the surface, Jesus teaches us to see a new perspective, perhaps to find a better understanding. He asks us to empathize, and there is no better example of Jesus' empathy than in Matthew 19. Here he creates a new view of what it might look like if his disciples looked at life from a different set of eyes—eyes of empathy.One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways for this week and last week’s #IceBreaker question for The Loop asked: When you think about someone who you've been able to confide in or someone with whom&nbsp;you've felt safe, what was it about them that made you feel that way?So, who and what was it about them that made you feel safe?

Episode 261: Belief In An Unchanging God

Transitions:&nbsp;Navigating Change – ‘Belief In An Unchanging God’ – by David BanksTransitions are a part of life. Whether positive or negative, change is constant in the human experience. Is this also true for spiritual beliefs? Have your beliefs changed throughout your life? How has your understanding of God and your patterns of observance changed over the past 5, 10, even 50 years?&nbsp;In Hebrews, we are told that we serve an “unchanging” God who is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Paul also provides counsel that believers will need to “mature” their faith and build upon a strong “foundation.” How do we best reconcile an unchanging God with a human experience that is constantly changing?There were no #WholeLifeTakeAways for this week but we would love to hear any questions or feedback that you have regarding this episode.&nbsp;Please let us know by using one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email links■ Social Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysJOIN US LIVE FOR ‘THE LOOP’!&nbsp;Every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. EST our interactive worship service goes live to the internet to engage with you!&nbsp;Ask questions, submit videos or ideas so that we can all grow closer as a community of believers.&nbsp;You can attend in person or online at www.WholeLife.Church/LIVE.&nbsp;Please login to the ‘chatroll’ chat feature so we can meet you personally and take your thoughts and questions!SUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 257: The Winding Path

Transitions:&nbsp;Navigating Change – ‘The Winding Path’ – by Chad HessWhat does it look like to follow God’s calling for your life? God’s plan is not a straight journey to a destination. There are always twists and turns, brought about by change. These changes can be painful and difficult, but they make us into who we are and the person that God wants us to be. God has led Chad down a very winding path that has led him to places he never would have imagined, and it’s turned out better than he could have dreamed possible.This week one of our #WhoLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;If God was trying to nudge you in a particular direction right now, how would you know it was God nudging you?So, what about you?&nbsp;How do you know if it’s God nudging you?&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysTo find out more about Adoption in Central Florida visit the Embrace Families website:&nbsp;https://embracefamilies.org/ and to find out more about the new Commission 127 ministry happening here at WholeLIfe Church beginning in May, click here:&nbsp;https://c127.promiseserves.org/rsvp/?e=OTcwOQ&amp;bypass_login=1&amp; JOIN US LIVE FOR ‘THE LOOP’!&nbsp;Every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. EST our interactive worship service goes live to the internet to engage with you!&nbsp;Ask questions, submit videos or ideas so that we can all grow closer as a community of believers.&nbsp;You can attend in person or online at www.WholeLife.Church/LIVE.&nbsp;Please login to the ‘chatroll’ feature so we can meet you personally and take your thoughts and questions!SUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 255: The Follower

Following Jesus Beyond the Cross – ‘The Follower’In their hearts, Jesus' disciples struggled to fill something, to prove something, and to make something of themselves (just like us today), but the whole time he was there with them, all he wanted was for them to follow—just follow.&nbsp;How could this change Jesus' followers today?This week one of our #WhoLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;The fullness of the Gospel was never meant to be proprietary and only a "Jewish thing.” As "ethnos" (anyone other than Jews), we are part of God's plan and "added in" to receive God’s grace, forgiveness, and acceptance. It would seem strange, then, that we would become the "inviters," yet God does allow us that privilege - not to judge or "gatekeep," but invite. When you think about the people in your life, who would be easy to invite, and who would be harder? Why?So, what about you?&nbsp;Are you an inviter or more like me and using other outlets to invite in less obvious ways?&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysJOIN US LIVE FOR ‘THE LOOP’!&nbsp;Every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. EST our interactive worship service goes live to the internet to engage with you!&nbsp;Ask questions, submit videos or ideas so that we can all grow closer as a community of believers.&nbsp;You can attend in person or online at www.WholeLife.Church/LIVE.&nbsp;Please login to the ‘chatroll’ feature so we can meet you personally and take your thoughts and questions!SUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 254: The Leader

Following Jesus Beyond the Cross – ‘The Leader’When Peter followed Jesus out of the boat to walk on the water, it seemed like an incredible feat to do what Jesus did. But the thought was there, “If he can do it, why can’t I?” until he realized it was God all along. The Leader is not just our teacher, though his words are incredibly thought provoking. The Leader is not just our friend, but he’s forever on our side. The Leader is God, and that means we follow him because, if we follow anything else, we have made ourselves out to be God. And that goes nowhere. This week one of our #WhoLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;Jesus asks us to follow; however, following is about discipleship, and discipleship is about replicating.&nbsp;How does that fit with your view of following?So, what about you?&nbsp;What is your view of following and replicating?&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysJOIN US LIVE FOR ‘THE LOOP’!&nbsp;Every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. EST our interactive worship service goes live to the internet to engage with you!&nbsp;Ask questions, submit videos or ideas so that we can all grow closer as a community of believers.&nbsp;You can attend in person or online at www.WholeLife.Church/LIVE.&nbsp;Please login to the ‘chatroll’ feature so we can meet you personally and take your thoughts and questions!SUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Things to Remember - ‘There’s A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow’There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow. This isn't just optimistic thinking; it is the promised reality of God. However, before we step into the ultimate one at the end of earth’s history, maybe one between now and then would be God’s friends finding unity on three platforms: Jesus is the Savior, God calls us to love, and There’s a glorious future.

Episode 251: Love Each Other And Everyone Else

Things To Remember – ‘Love Each Other and Everybody Else&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;It is our mission to love people—to love people so well that in, and through, and because of God’s love being exercised through us, the people we love will be drawn into a lifelong friendship with God, and they too will start loving people. Religious organizations like denominations will codify, policy-make, and set rules to follow.&nbsp;Honor those that promote true loving of people, and tolerate those that don’t block loving. However, because God has called you to love, seek to overthrow those that block us from God’s call on our lives to love people.This week one of our #WhoLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;What do you think about each of the descriptor of love from 1 Corinthians 13?&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.&nbsp;It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.&nbsp;Love never fails.”So, what about you?&nbsp;What do think about 1 Corinthians 13’s descriptors?&nbsp;How do you view them in regards to ‘love never fails’?&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysTo find out everything happening this weekend to celebrate Andy McDonald’s retirement please visit our website for tickets, times, and all scheduled activities!&nbsp;https://wholelife.church/andy-retirement-celebration/AS MENTIONED IN THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE….PRINCIPLES FOR HOW WE TREAT EACH OTHEROur Practice of Respect and Community Building1. Create a hospitable and accountable community. We all arrive in isolation and need the generosity of friendly welcomes. Bring all of yourself to the work in this community. Welcome others to this place and this work and presume that you are welcomed as well. Hospitality is the essence of restoring community.2. Listen deeply. Listen intently to what is said, listen to the feelings beneath the words. Strive to achieve a balance between listening and reflecting, speaking and acting.3. Create an advice free zone. Replace advice with curiosity as we work together for peace and justice. Each of us is here to discover our own truths. We are not here to set someone else straight, to “fix” what we perceive as broken in another member of the group. 4. Practice asking honest and open questions. A great question is ambiguous, personal and provokes anxiety.5. Give space for unpopular answers. Answer questions honestly even if the answer seems unpopular. Be present to listen not debate, correct or interpret. 6. Respect silence. Silence is a rare gift in our busy world. After someone has spoken, take time to reflect without immediately filling the space with words. This applies to the speaker, as well – be comfortable leaving your words to resound in the silence, without refining or elaborating on what you have said. 7. Suspend judgment. Set aside your judgments. By creating a space between judgments and reactions, we can listen to the other, and to ourselves, more fully. 8. Identify assumptions. Our assumptions are usually invisible to us, yet they undergird our worldview. By identifying our assumptions, we can then set them aside and open our viewpoints to greater possibilities. 9. Speak your truth. You are invited to say what is in your heart, trusting that your voice will be...

Episode 250: Trust The Gospel

Things To Remember – ‘Trust The Gospel’&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;The gospel teaches us that salvation is always the work of the Savior, not the saved. Anything added to the good news of the Gospel of Jesus turns it into bad news. Remember to trust the gospel—it is God’s work, work done by the Divine, and it can be trusted. Andy’s Takeaway from Titus 3:3-7OUR PART:Once . . .We, too, were foolish and disobedient.We were misled by others andWe became slaves to many wicked desires and evil pleasures.Our lives were full of evil and envy.We hated others and they hated us.GOD’S&nbsp;PART:But then . . .God our Savior showed us his kindness and love.He saved us, &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;not because of the good things we did, &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;but because of his mercy.He washed away our sins andHe gave us a new life through the Holy Spirit.He generously poured out the Spirit upon us because of what Jesus Christ our Savior did.He declared us not guilty because of his &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;great kindness.RESULTS&nbsp;FOR&nbsp;US:And NowWe know that we will inherit eternal life&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;-Paul in Titus 3:3-7 NLT 1996This week one of our #WhoLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;If someone asked you to define the “gospel” what would you say?

Episode 249: Fix Your Eyes On Jesus

Things To Remember – ‘Fix Your Eyes On Jesus’&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;What is your first line of defense?&nbsp;When you face good times or bad – When your relational world is stable or messed up – When you are the epitome of health or can’t get well – When the bills are all paid and there’s extra or when none are paid. Do you turn to your own mind for answers? Do you seek diversion? Is there a trusted friend you call? Only one person is worthy of our focus, and when we focus there, all will be well with our souls. There are a million other lines of defense and options of where to look, but especially when times are rough—fix your eyes on Jesus.This week one of our #WhoLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;In what ways does aiming for perfection rather than progress hamper your Christian pilgrimage?So, what about you?&nbsp;Any other perfectionists out there feel a little bit like me or have you already turned the corner and love to see the progress as it unfolds?&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysJOIN US LIVE FOR ‘THE LOOP’!&nbsp;Every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. EST our interactive worship service goes live to the internet to engage with you!&nbsp;Ask questions, submit videos or ideas so that we can all grow closer as a community of believers.&nbsp;You can also attend in person or online at www.WholeLife.Church/LIVE.&nbsp;Please login to the ‘chatroll’ chat feature so we can meet you personally and take your thoughts and questions!

Episode 247: Proper Payback

Jesus Doesn’t Make It Easy – ‘Proper Payback’&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;You punch me, so I punch you back. In the Bible, it’s called the lex talionis or the law of retaliation. Of course, one of the problems is that, if you punch me, I don’t want to just punch you back; I want to punch you back just a bit harder than you punched me. Rather than revenge, how do we move to reconciliation? Jesus' teaching about proper payback was meant to stretch us.This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: When has someone gone the extra mile for you?&nbsp;How did that feel?&nbsp;So, what about you?&nbsp;Who went the extra mile for you?&nbsp;How amazing did it feel and did it make you want to pass on that feeling to someone else?!&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 246: Easy Adultery

Jesus Doesn’t Make It Easy – ‘Easy Adultery’&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Adultery has become part of our entertainment. Modern media has hardened us to the pain of adultery for all parties involved; however, we’ve not spent much time on heart adultery. What will it mean to guard our hearts and minds against objectifying and marginalizing others? Jesus’ imagery is pretty drastic when he says we’d be better off with our eye gouged out than for our eye to lead us down adulterous paths. How do we guide our thoughts to keep clear of easy adultery?This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: What do you think about the four ways greedy sexual idolatry evidences itself- pornography, using sex selfishly, unable to be whole without it, expecting a fairytale to make you happy?’So, what about you?&nbsp;We would love to hear your thoughts about sexual idolatry and whether you agree/disagree, have a completely different idea on it!&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysAndy’s 5 Tips for Making it Harder for the Devil to Win Us to This Kind of Of Soul Damning Idolatry….At the very first sign that someone other than our spouse might be a better ear for us, or have more sympathy for us, or understand us better, just shelve that relationship. Take as drastic of action as plucking out an eye or cutting off a hand. End that relationship.If we find ourselves attracted physically or emotionally to someone other than our spouse build distance between us and them physically and emotionally. Don’t think you can stand that kind of pride can lead to a life-altering tragic fall.Determine that we want all the joy and fulfillment and meaning and connection and safety that comes from experiencing becoming one in this great intimacy as covenantal renewal and never from the mindset of a consumer.We can strengthen our connection to God that God might bring us the affirmation and fulfillment only available from him, that we might then be equipped to share with a spouse not expecting from them what only God can provide us.Finally, we need to talk to one another as spouses. We can talk to our spouse more. Share your thoughts.

Episode 245: Acceptable Murder

Jesus Doesn’t Make It Easy – ‘Acceptable Murder’&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;When we think of murder strictly in the realm of physically taking another’s life, it's never acceptable! However, Jesus expands the concept to being out of sync with someone—being angry, calling them an idiot, or cursing someone. How can we be reconciled when another doesn’t want to be?This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: When you were 10, what did you want to do when you grew up?&nbsp;How did that work out?&nbsp;Any vestiges of that original dream?So, what about you?&nbsp;How do you cut someone off, politely when they begin the ‘gossip dump’?&nbsp;And tell us what 10 year old you wanted to be when you grew up and how far you landed from those young intentions!&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 244: Stewarding the Gospel...of Reconciliation

Stewarding the Gospel…of Reconciliation&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Sin separated us from God. God is the source of all life, so sin separated us from life. God is love, so sin separated us from love. We cannot be the answer to our problem. Quite apart from any action on our part, God’s action by Jesus, through Jesus, and because of Jesus brings us back into oneness and invites us to join in helping people see what God has done for them. This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: How does it change your “witnessing” when you believe that everyone has been reconciled?” So, what about you?&nbsp;How has this idea changed your witnessing, your living, or are you still struggling with this as a belief?&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 243: Stewarding the Gospel...of Equality

Stewarding the Gospel…of EqualityWhen we steward well the gospel, we recognize that it calls us to a radical oneness, a radical equality. We are called to give up the pride of separation and see that we are all equal in two amazing ways: all distinctions of prideful hierarchy are leveled in both the condition of being lost and being found. This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: How broad is your concept of equality? Can you freely sing “When we ALL get to heaven,” or is it easier to sing “some of us get to heaven?” So, what about you?&nbsp;How broad is your concept of equality?&nbsp;Have you struggled, conquered, still learning?&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysQuotes from this episode:Martin Luther in his commentary on Romans writes: “The corruption (of which the Apostle here speaks) is so very deep that it is not fully understood even by such as are spiritual (believers). For this reason, the truly righteous pray fervently and entreat God for divine grace, not only because they know that their will is evil, but also because they can never fully comprehend the unspeakable depth of their depravity. So, they humble themselves and earnestly ask God to sanctify them perfectly, …Man (by nature) selfishly seeks only what is to his advantage; he can love only himself above all things; and that is the sum and substance of all transgression.&nbsp;Such (self-sufficient) persons seek only to please themselves and secure applause, even when they follow piety and virtue.”Ellen White from Christ’s Object Lessons p. 159-160:&nbsp;“No outward observances can take the place of simple faith and entire renunciation of self. But no one can empty themselves of self. We can only consent for Christ to accomplish the work. Then the language of the soul will be, Lord, take&nbsp;my&nbsp;heart; for I cannot give it. It is Your property. Keep it pure, for I cannot keep it for You. Save me in spite of myself,&nbsp;my&nbsp;weak,&nbsp;unchristlike&nbsp;self. Mold me, fashion me, raise me into a pure and holy atmosphere, where the rich current of Your love can flow through&nbsp;my&nbsp;soul.&nbsp;It is not only at the beginning of the Christian life that this renunciation of self is to be made. At every advance&nbsp;step heavenward, it is to be renewed. All our good works are dependent on a power outside of ourselves. Therefore, there needs to be a continual reaching out of the heart after God, a continual, earnest, heartbreaking confession of sin and humbling of the soul before Him. Only by constant renunciation of self and dependence on Christ can we walk safely. The nearer we come to Jesus and the more clearly, we discern the purity of His character, the more clearly, we shall discern the exceeding sinfulness of sin and the less we shall feel like exalting ourselves. Those whom heaven recognizes as holy ones are the last to parade their own goodness. The apostle Peter became a faithful minister of Christ, and he was greatly honored with divine light and power; he had an active part in the upbuilding of Christ's church; but Peter never forgot the fearful experience of his humiliation; his sin was forgiven; yet well he knew that for the weakness of character which had caused his fall only the grace of Christ could avail. He found in himself nothing in which to glory. Sir William Temple:&nbsp;The only thing of my very own which I contribute to my redemption is the sin from which I need to be...

Episode 242: Stewarding the Gospel...of Others First

Stewarding the Gospel…of Others FirstGod’s free amazing grace to each of us calls us to a new way. Solving the sin problem is Jesus leaving the comfort of the adoring angels and the forever unity of the Trinity and putting others first.&nbsp;The gospel is the perfect picture of self-donation, and when Jesus’ followers follow best, that picture of self-donation recurs in good stewarding of the gospel.This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: If we realize that our lives are a beautiful journey with one definite purpose (to live in God's command to love), how will you seek to find ways to make other people's lives better?&nbsp;It's really an adventure of discovery every single day, so what might be the first step?&nbsp;So, what about you?&nbsp;If you’ve realized this beautiful journey of life, how will you find ways to make other’s life better?&nbsp;If so, what was your first step?&nbsp;Let us know by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 241: Stewarding the Gospel...of Unfairness

Stewarding the Gospel…of UnfairnessIf I run a good race, if I keep the faith, if I obey the law, it seems to be fair that there’s a crown of righteousness and glorious future awaiting me. But how can it be fair for God to do it all, and I just benefit? How can it be right that everyone gets a gift? Who really wants to be treated fairly? This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: When you think about fairness is it about everybody getting the same, or each getting what they deserve, or is it each one getting according to their need?So, what about you?&nbsp;Is fairness about everybody getting the same, what they deserve, or is it each person receiving according to their need?&nbsp;Is it something else?&nbsp;If so, let us know why or why not by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 240: Stewarding the Gospel...of Worthiness

Stewarding the Gospel…of WorthinessYou are worthy of God’s love. You cannot hear this clearly enough or often enough, and you will never understand the depth of this great truth.&nbsp;When we look soberly at ourselves, we might be inclined to believe that we are not worthy. However, we are worthy, not because we deserve the love of God, but because he has declared it so.&nbsp;This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: If we are worthy by no effort of our own, why are there so many verses telling us how to behave, how to act, how to be righteous?So, what about you?&nbsp;Do you believe you are worthy by no effort of your own?&nbsp;If so, let us know why or why not by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Expecting the Unexpected: An Unexpected LifeOur world is not as God had intended, and while we’re here, we can separate ourselves from our community and live a safe and secluded life – not allowing the “unholiness” of the world to invade.

Episode 238: An Unexpected Responsibility

Expecting the Unexpected: An Unexpected ResponsibilityWhat if God gives you a purpose for which others have told you that you don’t qualify? “Build my kingdom on earth” is a pretty big responsibility. The shepherds were given the task of announcing the beginning of this new kingdom, and now it’s up to us to begin establishing it in our world. Will we listen to the voices telling us we don’t qualify for that job? Or, like the shepherds, will we believe we are exactly the one God is calling? This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked: What makes it hard to believe this is “good news for all people”?So, what about you?&nbsp;Is it hard to believe that this is ‘good news for all people’?&nbsp;Why or why not?&nbsp;We hope you’ll share your thoughts and ideas with us by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 237: An Unexpected Gift

Expecting the Unexpected: An Unexpected GiftThere are times when good things come out of unexpected circumstances, things we never could have planned. Change is never easy, rarely anticipated, and often life-altering. A barn was not Joseph’s and Mary’s first choice of where to meet their son but holding the son of God in their arms made their surroundings insignificant. How can we choose a life of abundance instead of scarcity – trusting God will provide unexpected gifts even in the midst of life’s most difficult challenges?This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;What experience in your life seemed to be a really bad event at the time, but over the years as you were able to look back at it, turned out to be quite different or maybe even a blessing?&nbsp;How has that experience changed the way you look at other rough times or even the future??So, what about you?&nbsp;When you look back at bad or negative experiences in your past how has it changed the way you look at other rough times or how you’ll approach them in the future?&nbsp;We hope you’ll share your thoughts and ideas with us by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 236: An Unexpected Addition

Expect The Unexpected:&nbsp;An Unexpected Addition&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Elizabeth and Zechariah wanted a child, and when they discovered they would receive just that, Zechariah couldn’t speak to share the exciting news, and Elizabeth was going to deal with all the challenges of pregnancy in her 80’s! How many times in our life have we been waiting for something and, when things finally fall into place, we’re just not ready – or it happens in a way we didn’t expect? Is it God’s sense of humor at our expense, or God’s perfect timing? How do we trust God’s wisdom in times when things don’t happen like we thought they would?This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;When you were 10, what did you want to do when you grew up?So, what about you?&nbsp;What was the big dream or the never-ending daydream about what you would be when you ‘grew up’?!&nbsp;What a fun way to share and to see what people wanted to be vs what they ended up pursuing and maybe finding the similarities and differences.&nbsp;We hope you’ll share yours with us!So, what about you?&nbsp;How can you or how have you helped others choose abiding in the vine and trusting God’s word?&nbsp;Of course we would love to hear your thoughts and ideas by using&nbsp;one of the following:Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected] Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 234: While We Wait - We Give Thanks

While We Wait:&nbsp;We Give Thanks&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;When things are going well, we may begin to believe that we are enjoying the life and success we are due for our hard work, wise decision making, focused attention, and careful planning and execution. However, when days of desperation come, we may become depressed and discouraged. If we’ve given ourselves credit for creating the good life, we may decide to give ourselves credit for the bad. From our helpless place of distress, God delivers. All we can do is give thanks.This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;How hard is it to believe that God is 100% good and 0% bad? So, what about you?&nbsp;How hard is it for you to believe that God is 100% good and 0% bad?&nbsp;Or, how do you remind yourself that he is always 100% good?!&nbsp;It’s always uplifting to hear how someone else overcomes and journey’s through their struggles and we hope you’ll share yours with us by using one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

While We Wait:&nbsp;Daniel&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Taken captive in a foreign land, out of his element, not clear as to his future, with more unknowns than a pandemic, Daniel prayed.

Episode 230: While We Wait - Moses

While We Wait:&nbsp;Moses&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;There’s the temptation to run ahead. Moses knows his story: from basket boat to royalty! He craves justice for his people, so he takes things into his own hands and commits murder. But it was witnessed. He flees to Midan, and for forty years each morning he cares for sheep. Finally, he leads his people to freedom, and they refuse to trust that God can give them the land he promised. So for another 40 years he wanders the desert, and every morning he gets up and goes to work sitting in the seat of judgement. Faithfulness in our duties of regular life are certainly a big part of what we do while we wait.This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;n what ways is your work “full time Christian work?So, what about you?&nbsp;In what ways do you view your work as ‘full time Christian work?&nbsp;Of course we would love to hear your thoughts and ideas by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

No matter our circumstances, we can choose to make the world a better place, to be a contribution while we wait.This week one of our #WholeLifeTakeAways asked:&nbsp;How can you commit to being a contribution in every circumstance while we wait?&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;So, what about you?&nbsp;Anything come to mind for ways you make this commitment?&nbsp;Of course we would love to hear your thoughts and ideas by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 227: While We Wait - Abraham

While We Wait:&nbsp;Abraham&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Abraham was given a promise: to be the father of a nation, which he heard as the promise of a coming son, an heir, progeny.&nbsp;He decided that waiting was too long. From Abraham, we learn one thing not to do while we wait, and that is to adopt a do-it-yourself plan. A form of that for us might be “getting ready for Jesus to come,” as if we could do that!

Episode 225: It's Simply The Only Way

SERIES - Simply Gospel:&nbsp;It’s Simply The Only Way&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Any time change takes place, there is a natural, and sometimes personal, resistance to it—not only because of the pain of change but also because of the fear.&nbsp;The idea that our self-preservation (or more often our self-interests) will not be met can bring a fair amount of discouragement.&nbsp;We all would like to have an infection inside our bodies cut out, but it’s never a happy thought to realize that we need it done now.&nbsp;The Gospel is truly good news to a lost world. However, we cannot ignore that it is also a personal affront to our living every day.&nbsp;Some will walk away from it, while others will realize that it’s the only way to live.This week’s #WholeLifeTakeAways: What do you think of when you hear the title of this series “Simply Gospel?How has the default human function of I perform, I achieve, I obey therefore I’m accepted infiltrated your life?Why do you think the default is so easy to adopt?How do you feel about the how two worshippers can both be seeking to live God honoring lives one from obligation and one in gratitude for being accepted?Who in your life has offered you unconditional love, acceptance and forgiveness?What do you think about God, before you believed, said, or done anything, reconciling you and all things to himself in Jesus? How can you live in the freedom of the reality that you are accepted therefore I obey? Who do you know who could benefit from shifting the human default of I perform therefore I obey to the reality of the gospel, I am accepted therefore I obey?Which takeaway(s) resonate most with you?

Episode 224: Simply Profound

SERIES - Simply Gospel:&nbsp;Simply Profound&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;There is something profoundly wonderful about experiencing or tasting something the way it was originally intended. In the Bible, we read the story of Cain and Abel and about the first murder that took place. Here, we see the plight of mankind played out in the first two children of Adam and Eve. Do we give in to our own way, or do we strive to do it God’s way? The hard part is that it ends up being seemingly disastrous with either decision. So, what’s the point? What’s the “Good” of the “Good News?”One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:&nbsp;Paul tells us in Romans 3 that our partnership with Christ in sharing the gospel does not put us right with God, meaning that even our good intentions and good actions are not what make us righteous or saved - (Only Christ) – So, what should motivate us as the underlying reason to follow Christ and make disciples?So, what about you?&nbsp;Where do you find your motivation and reason to follow Christ and make disciples?&nbsp;We would love to hear how you see this in your life.Send us your thoughts&nbsp;by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysBOOKS mentioned in this episode:Brene Brown - Daring Greatly:&nbsp;http://bit.ly/DaringGreatlyBOOKChris Blake - Searching For A God To Love:&nbsp;http://bit.ly/SearchingForAGodToLoveBOOKDavid Benner - Surrender to Love:&nbsp;Discovering The Heart of Christian Spirituality:&nbsp;http://bit.ly/SurrenderToLoveBOOKGraham Maxwell - Servant or Friends?:&nbsp;http://bit.ly/ServantOrFriendsBOOKLeslie Weatherhead - The Transforming Friendship: http://bit.ly/TheTransformingFriendshipBOOKSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 223: Nothing Added

SERIES - Simply Gospel:&nbsp;Nothing Added&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;If you were given news of the best restaurant in town and then given burdensome conditions that were required in order to eat there, how would you respond? The news of this restaurant becomes a bit less enchanting. So, too, with the Gospel – when we add our own conditions to God’s simple truth, we not only dampen its appeal, but we also diminish its meaning.One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:&nbsp;In the Story of the Lost Son in Luke 15: there are rule followers and rule breakers. We've probably found ourselves on both of those sides. Which side makes it harder for us to understand a loving father who's always willing to take BOTH of us back?So, what about you?&nbsp;Which prodigal do you find familiar struggles with?&nbsp;What was it like when you realized that the Father was willing to take you back?&nbsp;And when He was willing to take ‘the other brother’ back as well.&nbsp;We would love to hear how you see this in your life.Send us your thoughts&nbsp;by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 222: Discipling Others

SERIES - WholeLife Discipleship:&nbsp;Discipling Others&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;What does modern discipleship look like? How do we do this during a pandemic? Should we all be proclaiming the good news to the world or starting arguments on social media? What ranks higher: teaching doctrine or loving people? Can we do both?One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:&nbsp;What are your thoughts about the idea that God invites us to play and we turned it into work?So, what about you?&nbsp;Have you found the invitation to play?&nbsp;Have you accepted it or put it on the back burner?&nbsp;Or, and this is OK, have you found it be ‘not for you’?&nbsp;I would love to hear how you see this in your life.Send us your thoughts&nbsp;by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email linksSocial Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 221: Discipling Like Jesus

SERIES - WholeLife Discipleship:&nbsp;Discipling Like Jesus&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;“Follow Me.” These were Jesus’ words to his disciples. What did that mean? In his book I Am a Follower, Leonard Sweet says it’s not about leading, but about following. What was Jesus’ method for discipleship? What would happen in our families and community if we discipled like Jesus? One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:&nbsp;Why do we want to make being a disciple about more than just following Jesus?So, who just popped into your head?&nbsp;Who needs to know and how can we show them that the welcome is always available from the leader, if not from the followers?Send us your thoughts&nbsp;by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email links■ Social Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysBOOK:&nbsp;Bill Hull - The Complete Book of Discipleship:&nbsp;On Being And Making Followers of Christ (amazon.com):&nbsp;http://bit.ly/BillHullDiscipleshipBookSUBSCRIBE NOW and get all the #WholeLifeTakeAways!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 219: Look For The Helpers

SERIES - Worshipping In Mr. Rogers Neighborhood:&nbsp;Look For The HelpersWhen Fred Rogers was a boy, and saw something on the news that scared him, his mother’s counsel to bring him comfort was, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” The year 2020 will always be known as the year of COVID 19. Quarantines, stay-at-home orders, masks, and anti-bacterial soaps. While there were many who rose to the occasion by self-sacrificially serving on the front lines, helping neighbors or simply following suggested protocols, others stockpiled toilet paper. It’s normal to fear in situations like this, but could the way we manage that fear and how we respond in a crisis reflect on the trust and hope we find in our God?One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:&nbsp;How possible do think it is for us to have no human as an enemy but rather make enemies of hate, meanness, greed, etc.?We are hoping that this series and the humble and empathetic nature of Fred Rogers has given us a renewed spirit of being a good neighbor.&nbsp;A neighbor you can count on to be the friend and support that we all desperately need.&nbsp;The neighbor that treats everyone the same and lends a handful of resources willingly and without reservation.&nbsp;We would love to hear what you think about the time and the world we are living in being quite possibly the greatest opportunity in our lifetime to be the helpers?Send us your thoughts&nbsp;by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email links■ Social Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAwaysDid you miss ‘Let’s Talk About Racism’? - Watch the online replay here: www.wholelife.church/letstalkSUBSCRIBE NOW!&nbsp;Speaking of Grace is our weekly message at the WholeLife Church, in a convenient podcast format.

Episode 217: What Do You Do With The Mad You Feel?

SERIES - Worshiping In Mr. Rogers Neighborhood:&nbsp;What Do You Do With The Mad That You Feel?In 1968, the Vietnam War was being fought; Bobby Kennedy had been shot. Mr. Rogers realized that children were aware of these events, but they had no place where it was safe to talk about these issues. We avoid those things we don’t understand and what we fear. On the program, King Friday builds a wall to keep out what he didn’t like or understand. How does fear build walls? How important is it for the church to be a place where we discuss those things we fear and about which we may be angry?One of our #WholeLifeTakeAways this week asked:&nbsp;In the pursuit of neighborliness, this week who will you seek to understand better so you can be a better neighbor to them?So, who can you reach out to this week?&nbsp;It may need to be a phone call, a video chat, or maybe a socially distanced, masked faced, cup of coffee, or walk in the park.…the pandemic has changed things for sure, but not so much that we shouldn’t be seeking ways for God to use us.&nbsp;Has someone reached out to you as a neighbor during the pandemic?&nbsp;We would love to hear your story!&nbsp;&nbsp;Send us your thoughts&nbsp;by using&nbsp;one of the following:■ Text/Voicemail:&nbsp;&nbsp;407-965-1607■ Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;[email protected]■ WLC Mobile App:&nbsp;&nbsp;Media Tab/Podcast Banner and Use Text and Email links■ Social Media:&nbsp;&nbsp;#WholeLifePodcast/ #WholeLifeTakeAways‘Mister Rogers’ Links:A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (Movie): https://www.amazon.com/Beautiful-Day-Neighborhood-Tom-Hanks/dp/B081TLJDFP - also available on Hulu among others.&nbsp;Check your favorite streaming service!Finding Fred (Podcast):&nbsp;https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/finding-fred/id1477279443 - this show is widely available across podcast platforms.Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
