In today's podcast, Pete shares with you a passage that has been instrumental for him as a leader. The scene comes from Mark 15 where Jesus is lonely on the cross. Pete then offers some encouragement for how God comes to us, even in His silence.
In today's episode, Pete offers encouragement by drawing attention to the enormous power of Jesus in the face of evil.
Mark chapter 5 offers us the most graphic story in all of the New Testament. In this story, Jesus confronts a man filled with a legion of demons. And in Jesus' presence, this man is freed and restored to his right mind.
This kind of power is available to us all in Christ.
When power and dual relationships in your church are not carefully considered, you may be on the road to deep pain, confusion, and division.
In this episode, Pete reads five case studies from leaders who are navigating this delicate tension and he draws from difficult personal lessons he's learned to offer leadership wisdom.
Today, Pete shares an excerpt from a chapter in his recent book, Emotionally Healthy Discipleship, called "Follow the Crucified, not the Americanized Jesus".
It's one of the most important chapters in the book. Within it, he explores four temptations from the Evil One that come to all of us – regardless of our culture, country, age, demographic, or ministry
