Everybody wants to be happy. Everybody is on a happiness quest. For many, happiness is measured in moments. Experiences. It's elusive. Unsustainable. What about you? What makes you happy? Something comes to mind for each of us.
In this six-session video Bible study, pastor Andy Stanley examines the ways in which we tend to define happiness and explains how that definition influences the way we pursue it. He reveals that happiness is about "who", not "what", and that happy people are at peace with God, with others, and with themselves. He also shows how sin undermines peace because it separates us from God, others, and ourselves by substituting pleasure for fulfillment, things for people, images for intimacy, an ... more

Invitation to a Dance - The Trinity is supposed to be the central, foundational doctrine of our entire Christian belief system, yet we're often told that we shouldn't attempt to understand it because it is a "mystery."

How can it be? When we're naked and ashamed and alone in our brokenness, Christ envelopes us with his intimate grace. When we're rejected and abandoned and shattered beyond wanting, Jesus cups our face, "Come close, my Beloved." When we're dirty and tear-stained and despairing, Jesus Christ proposes undying, dying love: All that you painfully are and are carrying I'll take. All that I perfectly am and have is yours. Just take me.
There is a wooing that washes our wounds. Falling into this intimacy with him is the one thing we pray to never recover from. This kind of intimacy can only be tasted and swallowed, and it burns a holy yes through our begging veins.
Am I willing to take all that I have, break and give to H ... more
