  1. THE COOKIE MONSTER MUST GO!
    We all know that some websites that we visit in our digital world leave cookies. Actually, they’re more like cooties because they contaminate our spirit our soul and our attitudes… and our relational skills. Think of some cookie cooties that may need to go. Like entitlement, like prejudice, like the culture of complaint mentality, like greed, like the need for attention - just for example, of course! This stuff contaminates the grateful, kind and generous person hiding in us - living on cookies!

  2. REWRITING THE SCRIPT OF YOUR LIFE
    There are some things in our life that should not be shaping our future. Some events of our past we’d be better off without. Reputations we’d be better off without. If only we could reboot our lives and start over... It may be impossible to erase our past and start without the memories, but we can LIVE FRESH and NEW!

  3. THE LESSON IN STARTING OVER... AND THE TEST
    If you read through the Bible - or even skim through it - it is a quick history of the reboot… before that was even a word or a concept. The phrase we are familiar with is, starting over. The fascinating thing about God is that He seems to always engineer a reboot or a start-over for the persons who lead people through them.In one major season of the redemptive history, He did that with an entire nation. The lesson was a spectacular show of power. The test? Actually, it was a miserable failure. Most failures are based on three myths - and the assumption that God is as committed to our comfort zone and happiness as we are. In reviewing all these reboots and start overs, it’s pretty clear that God originated the reboot - not Steve Jobs or Bill Gates!

  4. KNOW WHERE YOU ARE... BEFORE YOU PACK THE CAR!
    Disorientation is the one thing we have in common with the 7.7 billion people coming out of this pandemic. We have new words to use, new common experiences to refer to like, masked, double-vaxxed, social distancing. As guard-rails come down and restrictions are dropped life seems more… normal! Some think, the test is over-lesson learned! But what if COVID was the lesson - and how we act and what we do now is the test? For 18 months the pandemic changed how we travel, how we shop, how we bank, how we work, how we communicate - and especially - how we relate to people! Where to from here? What lessons have we learned? Good question! Let’s figure out where we are - what’s changed - and what hasn’t!

  5. THE DEVIL'S CAMPGROUND... AND FORGIVENESS
    When we’re kids, our parents tell us, "Only 5, or only 10, or only 18 more sleeps until… Christmas, your birthday, vacation. In Ephesians 4, Paul tells us to not let the sun go down while we’re still angry. That if we let the devil - or the person who hurt us - camp there, it will create huge problems! So, the question is legitimate and really important; "How long will you drag your past into your future and let your bitterness taint and contaminate your life?" That is, in kids terms - how many more sunsets - sleeps - will you drag your pain behind you?
