Sickness, Danger and…Joy??
In-Person Worship: What’s the big deal?
Sacred Space: Might be more than you think…
There is much heat and not as much light concerning public gatherings and faith communities. Let’s look at this from a different angle…
Daily Word…Psalm 26
Daily Word…Humility as a way of life…Psalm 25
A key foundation for spiritual growth and maturity is humility. Learn the 3 P’s of what not to do that bring us on our way…
Daily Word…The shining weight of God’s presence…Psalm 24
“Who is he, this King of Glory? The LORD Almighty- He is the King of Glory!”
Discussion on Luke 17:20-21, the Kingdom of God, and Living in the Kingdom of God now…
Here is the course description:
Our society tosses around the term apologetics without much deep thought about what it actually is or how to properly do apologetics. I truly believe that Jesus calls us to engage in apologetics by developing a unique robust intellectual account of our Christian faith to share with those who are open to it. As Peter encourages to do in 1 Peter 3:15,
“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect…”
So, I invite you to join me in an eight week course learning about Christian apologetics in order to discover the wealth of knowledge that God has revealed to us. In our lessons we will be learning about the following questions:
● What is Apologetics?
● What difference does it make if God exists?
● Why does anything at all exist?
● Why did the universe begin?
● Why is the universe fine-tuned for life?
● Can we be good without God?
● How could a good God allow suffering?
● And more!
Daily Word…Psalm 8…A Glorious View of Who You Are
The Finger of God?
Director of the Wine Vat?
What in the world?
Daily Word…Soul Surgery…Psalm 7
Only God knows my thoughts and motives…I invite him to do soul surgery and cut out my disease
Daily Word: What about anger and rage? Psalm 6
How might the Bible and the way God has wired our brains give us insight into anger and rage? Let’s take a look…
Combining the brain science of Dr. Jim Wilder and teachings of Dallas Willard we explore how the best “hesed” love that glues us together can lead us to transformation…
Tonight we explore the brain science of character…
I asked our son, David Hanson, to teach a course for adults and teens in Christian Apologetics. He is a veteran high school teacher of Philosophy, Economics, Government, Criminal Justice and Psychology, and has a keen grasp of the works of leading Christian Apologists today.
David is able to take deep concepts and present them in an interesting and compelling way. He teaches how to listen and how to lift up common ground in conversations with Christians and future Christians…
Think about this…While Apologetics is NOT debating someone into the Kingdom (good luck with that), the same tools used in training speech and debate students are invaluable for us to make progress in our own understanding of the reasonability of our Christian worldview, increasing our own confidence, and providing us with helpful insights in bringing clarity to “our” Gospel message. This is a key to Jesus’ teaching to “love the Lord God, with all of your mind…”
I know David is an excellent source for making progress in these areas as I have had the good fortune of being under his training in this for the last several years! There is also the fact that he is currently teaching the #1, #2, #3, #7, #11, and #13 top-ranked high school speech and debate students in the country, according to the National Speech and Debate Association…
