Prayer: Does it Work or Just Hocus Pocus?

Prayer: Does it Work or Just Hocus Pocus?

We are never truly finished becoming who we are. Prayer is a way to center ourselves in our spirituality, connect with God, and deepen our relationship with The Divine. Far too often we think it must consist of elaborate words and phrases, knowing the "right" things to say. We also tend to treat God like a giant vending machine.

Join Pastor Dr. Andrea Smith for a message series exploring Conversations Around Death, Dying and the Afterlife. We explore questions like “What happens to us when we die?”, “Where do we go after we die?”, “What do different faiths believe about death and the afterlife?”
Good Vibes

Good Vibes

Good Vibes . . . Energy is a real thing. Positive energy, negative energy. We give off energy and also receive energy from others. It may seem "New Age" but it also is very spiritual. Throughout this series we apply the principles from The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. 1. Be Impeccable with Your Word. 2. It isn't always about you. 3. Don't make assumptions. 4. Always do your best. They are universal principles and we apply them to the realm of Christianity.
When the Smoke Clears

When the Smoke Clears

We live through times in our lives where the things we hold most dear blow up in our faces. Jobs lost, relationships ended, health problems arise. What do we do with these experiences? What is left of us after the smoke clears? Over the next three weeks, you will hear the true-life story of a German WWII survivor and how she not only lived through but used life's disasters to create a meaningful life full of joy, hope, peace, and love. The answer is found in one word: faith.
