It's Like Breathing

Conscious Contact

Step 11 is the reminder that the life your soul craves and was designed for can only flourish through “conscious contact” with its Creator

Practice Makes Progress

January 23, 2022 • Dave Romoser

As we near the end of the series, Step 10 reminds us that the journey of the recovery of our "new humanity" as Paul calls it requires an ongoing commitment to the principles and practices we've learned and begun to work through in Steps 1-9 | NOTE: We apologize for the few gaps in the recording as a result of issues with the internet upload speeds during the live stream.

Amends In The Kingdom

January 16, 2022 • Dave Romoser

As we continue in the series, discovering how to recover the freedom of becoming fully human in Christ, we recognize that in order to "be at peace with one another" as Paul stated, we needs to make amends "if at all possible" with all our neighbors; to pursue the flourishing of all humankind.

As Far As It Depends On You

January 9, 2022 • Dave Romoser

To live in harmony with those around us, particularly with those who we experience conflict with, requires that we understand why and how we are to seek to restore those relationships where there has been hurt or harm done

The Hardest Question

December 5, 2021 • Dave Romoser

Having come to the place of being completely open and ready for God to remove our character defects, how we ask makes all the difference

Ready or Not?

November 28, 2021 • Dave Romoser

It can be hard to do the work in the shadows… to acknowledge we have some character defects, and to confess them. What is often harder - but critical - is to be “entirely ready” to have God remove and replace them… all of them

Courageous Confession

November 21, 2021 • Lindsey Apple

Step Five is about gaining the confidence in the reality of God’s abundant love and grace, so that we can courageously confess and admit the exact nature of our wrongs. As a result, we will experience the freedom that lies within the Kingdom of God that leads to healing, wholeness and flourishing. Step Five: “We admitted to God, ourselves and another human the exact nature of our wrongs.”

Into The Shadows

November 14, 2021 • Dave Romoser

In step 4 of the 12 steps, we discover what may be the most difficult step of the journey into wholeness and freedom... the one step that we're probably most likely to avoid. And yet, we may well be surprised at how wrong we were about it, if we're willing to do it anyway.

Sensible Surrender

November 7, 2021 • Dave Romoser

Everybody wants a better life. We all long to be http://free...in our bones. But becoming free requires more than a vision of what that looks like and the desire to get there. It requires a decision. A decision that sets the journey in motion.

Sanity and Your Soul

October 31, 2021 • Dave Romoser

The journey to freedom, as Jesus offered and intended for us, is always one step at a time and understanding the relationship between recovering our sanity and restoring our soul is profoundly critical

First Things First

October 24, 2021 • Dave Romoser

Everybody has some dimension of their life that weighs them down... that seems to come in cycles bringing loss or pain, fear, shame, a "death" in one form or another. Finding freedom isn't about "trying harder". It's about understanding how transformation happens and beginning that journey.
