Dreaming in Crisis
Last night I had a dream. In the dream, I was walking through the church to get to the platform. As I walked up a staircase that I thought would go out to the stage I looked out over the church and realized I was at the back of the auditorium and there was no easy way to get to the stage.
2020 the Year of Double Blessings
Last year in 2019 we heard from God that it was going to be a year to sow. At first, when we hear something like this, it doesn’t seem very exciting. Now, looking back over the year, we can see that the investment we made sowing into the things of God, into our families, into church and into our community were worthwhile and many of us have seen great results.
Our Senior Pastors, Dan and Jessica Roth, have encouraged you, members and friends of the Rock Church and World Outreach Center, to fast during a part of January. This is because they have done it themselves, and so have the other pastors and leaders, at the “top of the year” for several years with many beneficial outcomes. So you might be thinking, “What is fasting, why should I do it, and how?”
Parenting Your Teen
Ps. Richard Villanueva
“Why did you do that!?”
“I don’t know?”
“You don’t know why you thought it was a good idea to _____?” Feel free to enter your kid’s crazy situation here.
How can we learn to understand the teens and pre-teens in our life? Actually, I think the real question is: “How do I get them to do what I want them to do?” This stage of life can create a huge amount of stress for parents, grandparents, and anyone who has a problem with trying to have a decent conversation with someone who refuses to take the airpods out of their ears. But, I think it can be done! We can begin to understand our teens (maybe not fully, but we can begin, at least!) and I think that understanding will create a sense of peace and compassion. These two ingredients are part of the foundation for discipleship and ministry that God has called us to have with the teens in our lives.
