Sermon-based Lessons

Recently, Josh has written sermon based lessons that go along with my weekly sermons to my congregation. This has provided a new level of alignment between the topics I present from the pulpit and the conversations that happen in our Connection Groups. Our people love it and it is a great complement to our worship services.

Good Questions Have Groups Talking

Our little church has really enjoyed Good Questions. They love the open discussion. We have grown too! The local folks are buzzing about Providence Sunday school.
Only by the grace of God.
Tina Leonard

Why we must discuss

We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. People who speak words of gratitude become more grateful. People who speak words of love become more loving. People who complain become grumpier. We must lead people to be people who are, "speaking the truth in love, we will grow." (Ephesians 4.15

Good Questions Have Groups Talking

Good Questions have groups talking, thinking, growing, pondering, changing. We have 100 examples of Jesus using questions to teach. The classic example is when He led his disciples through a series of questions to have Peter declare, "You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God." Jesus knew that when Peter declared this truth, he would be changed by it.

Good Questions Save You Time

If you have been studying and teaching the Bible for a while, prep time can be greatly reduced through the use of Good Questions. Perhaps you are a pastor and/or have been to seminary and/or have just been studying the Bible for years. All you need is 20 or so ready-to-use questions and you are good to go.

Weary of Struggling to Find Teachers?

I used to struggle to find and recruit Sunday School teachers -before I started writing Good Questions that Have Groups Talking.

Small Group Life's Two Biggest Problems

When I was a Group Pastor I had two problems

  1. I couldn’t get enough leaders
  2. Many of the leaders I did have were boring

How could Good Questions solve both of these problems?

We had the privilege of hosting Josh Hunt for our mid winter Sunday Morning Bible Study leadership conference. The emphasis on investing and building relationships is the key to reaching our society today. If you have not had the opportunity to have Josh Hunt in your church or attend one of his conferences, make plans to involve your leadership. His concepts will make a difference in your thinking about how simple it really is to reach out to people.

The springfield, Oregon, Public Schools newsletter published an article that caught my eye some time ago. As I read it, it struck me that I was reading a parable of familiar frustration in the Christian home and the body of Christ today. Once upon a time, the animals...

Deliver us from the evil one because we need it

We were having dinner at the home of friends. It was a beautiful evening so we were eating outside. Every so often I’d hear a strange sound, a kind of electric “zap.” Finally my curiosity got the best of me and I asked, “What’s that zapping sound?” “Oh, it’s the sound...

Gaining God’s Perspective

Gaining God’s Perspective

Every waking moment of our lives, we operate from one of two viewpoints: human or divine. I sometimes refer to these as the horizontal perspective and the vertical perspective. Humanity remains willfully and stubbornly limited to the horizontal. We jealously guard our...

Forgive Us Our Debts

There is an unusual epitaph on a large headstone in a cemetery outside of New York City. The name of the person in the grave is not on the headstone. There is no mention of when the person was born or when he died. Nor does it indicate anything about the person’s...

Selfish Ambition Here is the lowest level of ambition. Selfish ambition crosses the line from human aspiration into selfishness because the motivation is impure. Selfish ambition is sin. It springs from the flesh. It is the desire to be lord over others—to possess the...

Praying for daily bread in a time of abundance

Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us today our daily bread.” You can picture it, and so can I. A sixteen-year-old girl stands at her open closet door packed from floor to ceiling with shirts, pants, dresses, shoes, sweaters, coats, and all kinds of other clothes. Her...

Where does service start?

If your desire is for God to use you more as a servant, the most important first step you can take is to make sure you’re serving those who live under your roof—your wife and children. What you are at home is what you are! Then look at your major life commitments,...

Selfless love

If I were building a memorial to honor self-sacrifice, I would put one large plaque in the middle bearing these words: God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Rom. 5:8) Through Jesus, God has given you the...

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Jesus taught us to pray, “Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” What does it mean to be a debtor? What does it mean to have debtors? What is Jesus asking us to pray? Maybe the simplest way to explain this is in the arena of finances. Let’s say...
