Ted Talks Discussion Questions

This series explores the folksy wisdom of Ted Lasso and the timeless teachings of Jesus....

Bringin' Home the Bacon Study Guide

When we think about money, there is a tension between the cold hard numbers and the story we are telling ourselves about those numbers. Perhaps you know people who seem beat down by money: in their minds, the world is a place of scarcity and their frugality and stinginess reflects that. Perhaps you know people who seem to have harnessed a positive energy around money: their lives hum with generosity and they see the world as a place of goodness and abundance. In the midst of the money narratives playing in our minds, Jesus invited us to live lives of abundance, freedom, and generosity. So how do we get there? There’s a lot to consider whenever we’re bringin’ home the bacon....

Is God Good Study Guide

Sunday, April 24 – June 5 | Covid 19, wildfires, racial tension, political unrest, war: the last few years have felt relentless. It would be nice to have faith that history is headed somewhere, that our suffering isn’t wasted, that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

Soul Repair Study Guide

Sunday, February 27 – March 20 | When is the last time you thought about the state of your soul? The health of your soul is the hinge on which the rest of your life hangs. It's the difference between deep, satisfied spirituality and a restless, dispassionate faith. In an age of materialism and consumerism that tries to buy its way to happiness, many souls are starved and unhealthy, unsatisfied by false promises of status and wealth. You may not realize it, but the health of your soul is affected by what you experience in life—the ups and downs, challenges, and stress. Caring for your soul goes a long way in keeping you steady, filled with peace, and growing in wisdom....

Gigantic Jesus Study Guide

Sunday, February 6 - 20 | It’s possible to nail the details and still miss the big picture. We can climb the corporate ladder, make a ton of money, have an Instagram-ready family and still be miserable. We can attend church, join a Bible study, serve our community and still feel spiritually dead. The New Testament contains a letter written by the Apostle Paul and addressed to the church in a second-rate market town called Colossae. In it, Paul skips past the details and frames the big picture: a startling understanding of Jesus that has been transforming lives for nearly 2,000 years. Feeling underwhelmed with what society has told you would make you happy? You need to read Colossians....
