[Speaker: Jensen Holt McNair] Our fear of missing out can seem harmless at times, but what if it is actually rooted in something much deeper? What is it about our culture that feeds our fear of missing out?
[Speaker: Kermit Summerall] How far would you go to fit in? We all want to fit in, but when fitting in means losing our Christ-like distinctiveness, it hurts our relationship with God, our mission to the world - it’s not who we are! But how do we have enough courage to live in and love a world that's dofferent from us?
[Speaker: Colleen Luley] When you think about it, we spend a lot of time and energy comparing ourselves to others. And when we dwell on how our lives may or may not look like someone else's, we're actually letting ourselves be drawn away from Jesus and his mission for our lives. Yet Jesus gives us hope on how to follow him and serve others in the places he has us.
[Speaker: Matt Gordon] We live in a connected world. A super computer occupies our pockets and gives us answers, advice, and news at the ready. Despite all this connection, though, is there a disconnect? Does our media consumption actually satisfy us in deep, sustainable ways?
[Speaker: Jeff Parrett] Shame is a reality that we all face. It unravels our personal lives and distorts the way we see ourselves. But God sees ahead to the person he's making us. Should that change the way we look at ourselves?
[Speaker: Austin Conner] The pressure to be flawless in every area of life is both alluring and suffocating. Whether it’s through our accomplishments, appearance, or religious life, we are simultaneously captivated and crushed by perfectionism. Why do we do this? How does this effect our calling as God’s people?
