Munchies Volume 13 (audio) by:Jim Wilder
Belonging is one of the most problematic topics in the Life Model teaching. First, because most people assume that belonging is something that others are supposed to do for them and no one can find people who can give them enough belonging. Second, the "seeker sensitive" church movement assumed that people who come to church are seeking belonging only to find out recently that finding belonging is not what attracts a crowd. Wilder demonstrates in this series that belonging is something people create around them until they are damaged by type A or B traumas. Even the weak and the stranger are expected by scripture to create belonging around them. Creating belonging around you is your normal function. Restoring our natural function is object of the Thriving Recover Your Life class called "Belonging." These lessons give the biblical background for our program design.
Munchies Volume 22 (audio) by:Jim Wilder
"No Fear" Are your thoughts and decisions often influenced by your fears? God never guides His children through fear! Wilder uses four separate groups of Bible stories to examine our guidance system: 1) Stories where we are told that people acted out of fear - starting with the first one where Adam and Eve were afraid and they hid. 2) Times when people did not let fear win and God approved their actions. 3) Times that God said, "Fear not!" 4) Times God used fear to guide His enemies to pay attention. After you hear this "no fear" series you will want everyone you know to hear it too!
