This is the last in a series of messages on the healthy Christian, really the healthy human. Today it’s all about a current buzzword: passion. What is passion, what isn’t passion and how do we find true passion in life?
The healthy Christian has something that keeps them afloat when trials or troubles come. It’s a life giving structure. Some feel that Christian freedom means that there should be no guides and no rules. That’s just not the case! Of course, there’s another side to this coin too. There can be traditions that hold us captive. This message deals with both sides of that balance.

This week’s message concerns another important area of basic Christian life. It’s all about who you listen to. We all understand that there’s a difference between sound coming into our ears and really listening. The people we really listen to can effectively change our lives, so how do you know who you should…and shouldn’t hear?
Father’s Day is a day of mixed emotions! Everyone has some sort of “father issues” it seems, and good fathers are a rare breed. But it doesn’t have to remain that way. God has a clear job description for fathers and when you’ve never had a good one, He’s willing and able to be your Heavenly Father.
Using an interview-style format, Pastor Bruce Plummer and Samuel Orlando discuss the disparity between the average American’s idea of poverty, and the reality of extreme poverty faced by 400 million children around the world.
