When we "Aim Small" towards a heavenly goal, our "cause," we are more likely to stay on track for that goal. So many times in our lives we decide to remain where we are because it seems like the safer option. Spiritual warfare is dirty. Oftentimes the innocent are swept up in the aftermath whether they choose to act or are too afraid to get involved. But in this week's episode we are reminded of our duty to act upon our beliefs not out of pride or glory, but rather to truly humble ourselves before God. “I ask only that you act upon the beliefs for which you have so strongly spoken. And in which you so strongly believe” Join us as we discuss acting on our beliefs, humility, and hope in this week's episode on the movie 'The Patriot.' #WelcomeToTheAdventure

The Walking Dead is back and we have already seen heartache and pain like we haven't seen before! But through this heartache we learn beautiful lessons about the lives Christ is calling us to. Today 'judgement' is a word that causes a lot of anger and discomfort.
We are constantly taking in information and analyzing it. From first impressions to competitions we are always judging and making decisions based off of the information we see. But what does that have to do with 'The Walking Dead?' #WelcomeToTheAdventure

In this season of advent, as we prepare to celebrate the birth of the Messiah, it's important to look at what is meant by 'Messiah.' The Judeo-Christian tradition teaches that the Messiah is a priest, a prophet, and a king, but did you know that the Lord of the Rings mythology teaches us about these roles? SPOILERS

What do our favorite stories, heroes, and villains tell us about morality? Anyone who has studied literature knows that a good story has many different conflicts overlapping and intertwining. Is it possible that these levels of conflicts are a representation of a deeper conflict in our own reality?
