Did you know that God invites you to worship Him as His guest every Sunday? Greg Wheatley, director of worship at New Covenant Church, describes what this means, and why it's so important, in the latest edition of "The Day After Sunday" podcast.

It's natural to think there are many ways to worship God in our church services, but really there are only two. Greg Wheatley explains what they are in this edition of "The Day After Sunday" podcast.

Winston Churchill once said, "We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us." The same is true of our words. Once we begin to use a word in a certain way, it shapes our very thinking on the subject.

Like Ezekiel, we step into the suffering of humanity with eyes wide open, but we don’t stop there. We believe that bones can live. Crazy as it sounds. Indeed, "foolish" according to the apostle Paul; yet, it's true. The most tentative and enfeebled Christian has the power to speak life into dead bones. Why? Because Jesus Christ swallowed up death.
