The Emotionally Healthy Church

God Has a Name
God Has a Name is shaped around one incredibly important paragraph in Exodus. In the well-known story of Moses interacting with God on Mount Sinai, Moses asks to see God’s glory. But what God does—and says—is surprising and relevant for anyone who wants to understand God today. For everyone who is trying to understand this God that the Bible talks about, this is the place to begin.
While living and working in one of the world’s most impoverished countries, teacher, doula, and young mother Rachel Marie Stone unexpectedly caught a baby without wearing gloves, drenching her bare hands with HIV-positive blood. Already worried about her health and family and whether her service was of any use, Stone grappled anew with realities of human suffering, global justice, and maternal health.
10,000 Reasons reveals the stories beyond the well-known church anthem, fusing global worship leader Matt Redman’s own encounters of God with those from believers throughout the ages.
It’s hard to imagine Josh McDowell was once agnostic. Yet out of his honest examination into the claims of the Bible he became a Christian and soon wrote Evidence That Demands a Verdict, one of the most influential Christian books of the last century. Since that time he’s authored and coauthored 150 books and given more than 27,000 talks to over 25 million people. [Read more…]
Conferences are great opportunities to learn from speakers as they share biblical insights, wisdom, and unique life experiences. But depending on when and where the conference is held, it may be impossible for you to attend.
That’s why Faithlife brings the best conferences right to you.
Join Elyse Fitzpatrick as she teaches you how to overcome what’s been holding you back from experiencing true joy in your Bible studies. In her virtual conference, Women Delighting in the Word, Elyse reveals how God’s Word is a love story, and every chapter is a scene that speaks of God’s eternal love for you, as a woman. Each section of the Bible—the Law, history, poetry, and the Epistles—points to his love and the good news of redemption through his Son.
This is a great event for small groups! So here are four easy steps to hosting it for your family and friends:
1. Purchase a family or small group streaming license.
Purchase a license for your family or your small group. If you’re not involved in a small group, it might be the perfect event to start one of your own! Or just gather your friends and enjoy learning from Elyse together.
2. Pick any date to watch between now and July 31.
The event already happened, but you can still stream it any time before July 31. That’s plenty of time to pick a date where everyone can join. You can even pause the stream and have times of discussion or build multiple study sessions out of it.
3. Plan a big party—provide food and drinks.
Your small group license is good for up to 25 people, so make it a party!
4. Invite family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers, and learn about the Word together.
Be sure to plan now because the conference stream will end on July 31!

When pastor and author Kyle Idleman tried to finish the simple sentence, “Jesus became real when . . .” it began a journey of discovery resulting in his new book The End of Me.
Kyle realized that Jesus Christ becomes real for each of us when we come to the end of ourselves. And for that to happen, we need to embrace the counter-intuitive teachings of Jesus Christ: brokenness is the way to wholeness, mourning is the path to blessing, and emptiness is required to know true fullness.
