Millions of students returned to school over the past couple of weeks. In this week’s episode, Jeff and Dave unpack how to best navigate through life when it seems like it’s all a mess of chaos and change. One of the top issues we hear about coming from the chats with our live coaches centers around anxiety. If you’re feeling anxious about the new school year, take a few minutes and have a heart-to-heart with one of the amazing Coaches on our chat line. You’ll be glad you did. Then, have a listen to our conversation.

New Alpha Courses Starting

Alpha_course_logoAlpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes, bars—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Scott joins us to give us an update on the Green Bay classes starting in September.  Facebook event

#092: When You Feel Like A Turtle

#092: When You Feel Like A Turtle

Anxiety can be defined as a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. The effects of anxiety are far reaching. But what has anxiety actually cured? If anything, it’s caused us to hide in our turtle shell until the moment has passed. And we usually miss the thing we’re supposed to learn on the journey.

As I drive through neighborhoods this time of year, I see witches, ghosts, skeletons, black cats, zombies and pumpkins carved into monsters. Tombstones decorate front yards with white, fuzzy spider webs. Some are just downright spooky!

All the costumes and candy aside, this is a really dark time of year. And if we’re not wise, it can be downright demonic. Halloween is really not a Christian sort of holiday. You could make a case as to why Christians should not participate in it since it has such dark spiritual overtones to it. In fact, that argument has already been hashed out pretty well already. Dave and I want to take a different approach and ask questions that steer the conversation to talk evangelism. Spiritual things matter. Everybody is searching for answers to things they can’t explain.

Show Notes

In day-to-day conversation, how often do you talk about angels or demons? Probably very little if you’re like me. Here are some good discussion starters for tonight…

+ What’s the big deal about Halloween anyway?
+ Why is our society enamored with dark spiritual things (ie. ghosts, witches, goblins, zombies, etc)?
+ How do we recognize demonic spiritual influence in our lives?
+ Should we even talk about such demonic things, for they could bring doom and gloom on us?
+ What does it mean to be spiritually superstitious?
+ How can Christians use Halloween to be evangelistic?
