Summer Reading List 2016
Jared Belcher, Ben Shoun, & Brett Moore
As the 10 Minute Think Thru prepares to take a break during the summer, we share a few books that are great summer reads. See you again in the fall!
Do you read the Bible on an app? Most Christians do (at least sometimes). But is it the same as reading a printed Bible? In this episode, we discuss the pros and cons of reading the Bible from a screen.
You've told them about Jesus, they have heard the gospel- but they still don't believe it. This can be a really tough situation, especially when they're a family member or close friend. What do you do?
Like us, you probably find yourself busier than ever this summer. Not only that, but many people in our church find it difficult to sleep at all. Why is that? In this episode, we talk about rest and sleep and why we have such trouble turning off.
We only have so much time in our day, so we want to steward it well and be made more like Christ each and every day. On this episode, we talk through 10 habits you should kick this summer and the deeper reasons why.
Work is hard. Whether you are a full time parent or out in the job market, the curse of hard work is ever looming. So when you finally have some free time, how do you spend it? Do you feel like you're just working for the weekend? In this episode, we consider the concept of leisure time and how we can rest in a God-centered and healthy way.
Many of us feel like we watch too much TV, or spend too much time on Instagram, or feel too anxious when we're without our phone - compulsive use of technology can be not only unhealthy, but positively draining. Last year, Andy Crouch published a helpful book called, "The Tech-Wise Family," which explained how to use technology in a healthy way. Today, using Andy Crouch's book as a spring board, we dissect 6 ways to keep technology in it's proper place.
At the start of each new year, we all think of how we want it to be better than the last. New year's resolutions can be very helpful!But sometimes the most helpful thing we can do is identify what is keeping us from growth and to remove those things.
For the first time in the United States, cremations have exceeded traditional burials. As families grieve the loss of a loved one and consider how to proceed, a cremation is often a cheaper and easier option. For Christians, however, we wanted to consider what the Bible has to say about cremation. Does it matter? Is cremation a better or worse option for Christians?
God commanded that his named be honored, yet there remains a lot of confusion about what is actually honoring and dishonoring to God. Listen in as we discuss what Scripture has to say about taking the Lord's name in vain.
