Our lives are like tapestries. They are designed by the choices we make. But what guides the choices we make? Whose path do we follow? The path of Adam leads straight to selfishness and ultimately estrangement. Following Christ leads to victory. The choice is yours to make, which one do you choose?
God Save the Queen!
The funeral of Queen Elizabeth II was magnificent and elegant. Filled with pomp and majesty, it was a fitting requiem for a queen who was beloved by her people. The most powerful moment came when the crown of England, along with the royal sceptre and orb, were removed from her coffin. They were not given to her son, the new king, but instead placed upon the altar in the Church. There they will remain until God bestows them upon the new monarch at his coronation. In this episode, we examine each of these symbols in turn and what expectations they imply for the monarch. And in an interesting twist, we’ll see how the royal symbols hold meaning for you too. It’s time to get some!
It’s Not Fair!
The US government’s forgiveness of student loan debt has helped millions of people get out from under crippling student loans. It has also created a firestorm of controversy.

Play to Your Strengths
The American Revolutionaries were outmanned and outgunned against their British counterparts. If they engaged in conventional warfare, the United States of America might look very different than it does today. Instead of doing battle in obligatory manners, the American militia used new and strange tactics to win the battles of Lexington and Concord. By so doing, they played to their strengths and were able to secure their Independence. Can Warrior Saints do the same thing in our lives? You bet. It’s time to get some!

What do you believe? Do you even truly know? Or do you allow others to tell you to tell me what you believe? When we cease to think, our beliefs get muddled.
