Conversations from the Cry Room

Finding God in tough times

Came with the Frame

Jesus offers a new frame of grace and freedom. • July 8, 2020 • Pastor Brian Sixbey & Leah McGlynn

Friends, we are all born to a particular place, time, and family. These things become part of our context or frame and help define us, yet they are often distorted and limiting. In Jesus Christ, we get to live into a new frame that offers grace and freedom.

Save From What?

Answering a 3-year-old's question. • July 1, 2020 • Pastor Brian Sixbey & Leah McGlynn

In our experience, 3-year-olds ask the best God questions. Our Spirit-led answers often help us all find Jesus.

From Have-to to Get-to

Let God transform burdens into blessings. • June 24, 2020 • Pastor Brian Sixbey & Leah McGlynn

Friends, do you feel like everything has become a burden, even the good in your life? God can transform them into blessings if we begin to give thanks for those things, especially the people. They can go from being pains to being gifts.

Wonderfully Made

We're made in God's image. • June 17, 2020 • Pastor Brian Sixbey & Leah McGlynn

Friends, God made each of us wonderful, and none of us are meant to be doing work that we can't lay down. We are meant for freedom and joyful obedience.

Are we there yet?

Living in the "Now" & "Not Yet" • June 10, 2020 • Pastor Brian Sixbey & Leah McGlynn

Pastor Brian & Leah discuss how we know God's promised change is real; we're new creations in Christ. But how do we deal with this world that hasn't been restored yet? How do we live when things seem to be getting worse?

Just Needs, Just Actions

June 3, 2020 • Pastor Brian Sixbey & Leah McGlynn

Pastor Brian & Leah discuss George Floyd's murder, the protests, and how we as Christians should respond.

What do you expect?

Letting the Spirit reorient our expectations. • May 27, 2020 • Pastor Brian Sixbey & Leah McGlynn

Our expectations are often distorted, but God reorients our expectations by giving us Godself, the Holy Spirit, to dwell in us and change us so that we can fulfill the purpose for which we were born.

Pour Solutions

When alcohol is a coping method. • May 20, 2020 • Pastor Brian Sixbey & Leah McGlynn

Friends, when we are overwhelmed or don't feel seen, it's tempting to use solutions like alcohol to help us cope. Pastor Brian and Leah offer a different "pour solution," enlisting the help of Hannah and David. If you need someone to talk with, email Pastor Brian: pastorbrian@firstumcfoxhill.org
