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…

You may also donate masks or make masks for the hospital.

The hospital requests that people don’t just show up, so we will deliver them for you. Just bring them to Lifehouse Church office, 10-12 M-F.

Mike and Debee Jusko also announced our “Meals of Love” Outreach. At the hospital there is no cafeteria open. Patients are receiving food, but staff has to wing it. Well not if we can help it!

We contacted the hospital and set up an arrangement where we can have fresh, wholesome and delicious meals delivered to be dispersed amongst the staff.

Each time we do this we will have 20-30 meals delivered that we have ordered from smaller local stand alone restaurants we frequent. This way we are showing love to them and to our hospital! A double win!

It’s about $200-$300 a time, so we will begin once a week and see where we go. Your donations will dictate how many times we can do this.

To donate, simply give online,

and choose “Love Offering”. Or to send a check, make it out to “Lifehouse Church” and put “love offering” in the memo.

Thank you and God bless your generosity!

Matthew 28
16 Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him—but some of them doubted!

With some of the original disciples it starts with doubt. Can you imagine?

They have lived with Jesus 24 hours a day seven days a week for the last three years. They have witnessed everything. The miracles. God speaking directly from a great hole torn out of the atmosphere connecting heaven and earth. They have seen a man die and then three days later, the same man come back to life, leave the tomb, and keep on going.

Now this man, Jesus, is leaving them. He is entering into the heavens to rule the universe. But before he leaves, he is giving them a final word of encouragement.

They see him, and they can’t help but worship him. This is God himself who has come as Jesus. But, then we get this strange phrase.

“…but some of them doubted!”

Now, what is this doubt? Some versions of the Bible translate this “lingering doubts.” Well if this means I don’t know everything about Jesus and God the Father and the Holy Spirit and how they want the world to turn out, then count me in. This means God is different than anything in the created order. Fair enough. I don’t know everything there is to know about God. In fact, I never will. So, what does that mean when it comes to sharing what I do know with others? It means doubt is not a reason to keep silent.

Once I say, “I trust in God” or “Jesus is my Savior,” everything else I say or do afterward is a witness to my trust.

So, it is not a choice as, “Will I share about Jesus with those closest to me?” I am sharing what I think about Jesus by how I am living my life. It is not possible to not be a witness for Jesus once I say, “I believe.” The only remaining question is, what kind of witness am I?
