Living The Good Life

In this week's podcast, Pastor Mark reflects on the April 15th CR service.  Then we hear a clip from this past week's episode of The Middle, where the family talks about changing churches.  Pastor Mark then considers why some people change churches - and why most people don't. We then consider different preaching styles and why Mark has adopted a conversational approach.  Then we visit the sermon "cutting room floor," where we find what didn't make it into last week's talk.  Finally we hear the sermon from Sunday, April 15th, Part 2 of the God Life series: "Living The Good Life."
