Life on the Vine-Part 5: Becoming Faithful in a Throw-away Culture We live in what has often been called a "disposable society". We have disposable plates, knives and forks, disposable razors, cameras and contact lenses. Even big expense items like computers can, within three short years, become more expensive to repair than to replace. This disposable mentality is not limited to material goods. Our jobs, our friendships, even marriages are sometimes discarded because they've outlasted their usefulness or no longer please us. Yet some of the most fulfilling and satisfying rewards in life come from steadfast, enduring faithfulness. Becoming Faithful In A Throw-away Culture continues our series entitled, Life On The Vine; Cultivating Godly Character, with a look at developing faithfulness through all of life.

Life On The Vine-Part 4: Becoming Good "Good" is a word that we use with some ambivalence. If a movie was "good", that usually means it was just "O.K." Good, not great. If someone is too "good" we deride them for being, "self-righteous" or "goody-goody". Yet we long for the "good life", we remind our children to "be good", and someone who is always there for us we consider a "good friend". Becoming Good continues our series entitled, Life On The Vine; Cultivating Godly Character, with a look at how to live a truly good life.

Life On The Vine-Part 3: Patience and Kindness in a Me-First Society We've often been encouraged to practice, "Random Acts of Kindness". But what if we became even more intentional? What if we actually lived lives of kindness? How would our neighborhoods, our schools, our workplaces and our freeways change if patience and kindness became more than a random act, but a way of life? Is that even possible? Patience and Kindness in a "Me-First" Society, continues our series entitled, Life On The Vine; Cultivating Godly Character, with a look at learning patience and practicing kindness.

Life On The Vine-Part 2: Cultivating Joy and Peace "The pursuit of happiness" is one of the unalienable rights set forward in the Declaration of Independence. It could easily be argued that we are often so busy in our pursuits, that we're missing out on the happiness. The pace of our lives can actually keep us from enjoying life. While happiness is most often dictated by our circumstances, Jesus spoke of character qualities that are far more substantial. They are qualities that sustain and outlast any circumstance. Cultivating Joy and Peace continues our series entitled, Life On The Vine; Cultivating Godly Character, with a look at how God produces resiliency in the lives of his followers.
