In life, it's all too easy to get lost. If we don't develop a practice of self-reflection, who knows how off course we can become? In this message, we explore the danger of not self-reflecting, as well as how to do it well.
One barrier that people experience in coming to faith is that it just seems irrelevant sometimes. Where's the new life? Where's the transformation? If it actually mattered, it'd matter more. So how can we remove that barrier by making faith relevant in all of life?

In such a politically charged culture, what's the most politically charged thing you can do? If we carefully read from the most politically charged book in the New Testament, we find out a surprising answer. Check it out!

Do you control "it", or does "it" control you? "It" points to something deeper and darker, something that oppresses us universally - and something that Jesus came to free us from. The question is, how can we help free others from "it"?
