Lord’s Prayer: “Lead Us Not Into Temptation—What Can I Do?

Temptation will always bombard us. But that doesn’t mean we need to fall for it. This week, Pastor Dan walks us through the Lord’s Prayer and helps us see how we can continue to grow in our relationship with God. However, Pastor Dan doesn’t talk about “forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.” Forgiveness is a topic all on its own, and he will devote a whole series to forgiveness later this year. Watch for it!

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.
