Narrate Church Series - Relationship Charades #3

In most relationships, especially romantic relationships, there’s a game we play.  The games goes like this.  
I have expectations that I’m mostly unaware of but expect you to fulfill.  
When you fulfill them, we win.  
When you don’t, you lose.  

You might call this game Relationship Charades.

Game on?

What happens when we slow down and identify the expectations we carry into marriage?  Second, what if we learn to exchange our expectations for desires?  Still up for a new challenge?   What if then trust that one of the secrets to marriage is learning to put the desires of our spouse above our own?  Last one, what if we rounded this out by learning to talk directly with God about our desires?

If you’re tired of playing Relationship Charades, we’d love for you to join us for a 3-week conversation that’s sure to challenge some old dynamics and encourage some new.

Narrate Series - God Has A Name #4

What if God has a name?  And what if God’s name offers tremendous insight into how the authors Scripture invite us to experience the character and person of God?

In the Old Testament book of Exodus, written hundreds of years before Jesus, Moses asked God his name.  And God gave it to him.  God told Moses his name was Yahweh, and what followed is the most repeated section of the Bible in the Bible.

If the ancient Israelites found God’s name and the revelations of his character that came with it so important, might we do well to take a long look?

What if we’re all prone to construct for ourselves a God of our own liking.  What if it’s healthy to audit our understanding of God?  What if paying close attention to God's character can help us relate to him as a person, not an idea?
