Praying With Jesus – How God Connects With Us

Does God really speak to people? Some people might tell you to go see a doctor if you claim to hear from God. Others suggest it is wishful thinking. And some say, “Oh, but it IS real. God DOES talk to people.”
What do YOU think?

Welcome to KCRC’s summer series, “Praying With Jesus.”
And in this podcast we’re considering questions like:
– So, if God speaks to people, how does that happen?
– What’s it look and feel like?
– How do you know if it’s real?
– What if you think it’s God, but you are wrong?
As always, we’re leaning into the Bible and what it has to say about all this.
Our base passage is Acts 10:1-23.

Hope you can track with us – not just for this teaching, but for the entire series. So, go grab a bible. Find John 15. Then download the podcast and the study guide – and join the conversation.

Praying With Jesus – Why God Connects With Us

“What does it take to grow in effectively living life as Jesus would live it if he were walking in our shoes today?” – that’s our key question for 2019 here at KCRC. Part of the answer, at least, revolves around the theme of prayer.

And that’s why we are taking time to explore praying. Which assumes, of course, that we are praying people. Or, at least, people interested in praying.
Is that so?
Hopefully, yes. But reality is that most of us have some struggles in praying well, or maybe in praying at all. We wish it would be better – but aren’t really sure how to get from present reality to that zone of being able to pray well.
And that’s why we’ve reached back into the “toolkit” and pulled out the “60:60 EXPERIMENT.”
A bunch of you have asked that we do it again, so – voila!

We’re going to explore a few misconceptions about God and prayer, and then try to get to the truth of who God is, and just why he might want to connect with us, anyway. Our launching point is John 15:1-17.

Hope you can track with us – not just for this teaching, but for the entire series. So, go grab a bible. Find John 15. Then download the podcast and the study guide – and join the conversation.

Praying With Jesus – Getting Started

Here at KCRC 2019 is a year of exploring what Spiritual Apprenticeship is all about. At the heart of it we want to ask the question – “What does it take to grow in effectiveness living life as Jesus would live if he were walking in our shoes today?

So…What’s it take to do that well? As we watch the life of Jesus, it’s pretty clear that prayer is a key part of what he does and how he does it. Meaning – perhaps prayer ought be a key part of what we do, and how we do it….. don’t you agree?

We’re going to spend the next while exploring what prayer is all about. And we’re going to keep Jesus, and his prayer role model, always in our sights.

This week we explored a couple of “DON’T-go-here-if-you-want-to-pray-effectively-and-deeply” statements by Jesus. Our key bible passage is Matthew 6:5-8.

Go ahead and find a bible, either print version or online or app. Flip to Matthew 6. Then download the podcast and join the conversation.
