What About My Suffering?
We come to Jesus with a million wishes. But he doesn’t always give us what we think we need.
How to Deal With Shame
Shame is the unshakable feeling that we don’t belong, tempting us to run away from God and his people. Shame can be tied to something done to us, something we have done, or something we have continued to do. As hard as it is to open up about shame, it’s even harder to address in the church. Pastor Mike dares us to cross that line and show what can happen when a Christian community learns to deal with shame.

Choose Gratitude Over Grumbling: Even When You’re Hurting
To be grateful for the hard times in your life is difficult. Pastor Mike asks: Do you think it’s possible that you could only get to certain places spiritually if you had first passed through the difficulties of pain, suffering, and hardship? The apostle Paul, a guy who was incredibly grateful and went through an incredible amount of suffering, is going to help us thank God even when we hurt.

Am I Strong Enough? I Feel Stuck
