Crucial Conversations

Written by Bob Harpole on . Posted in podcasts

conres3Our church in Los Angeles had its final week of focusing on going deeper in our relationships. I did a message called, “Crucial Conversations.” Running into other people’s weaknesses, shortcomings and sins is inevitable.  If we are going to deepen our relationships we have to have a full relationship tool box.  Jesus had to deal with knuckleheads every day.  We look at the different ways he dealt with others’ mistreatment of him.  Finally, we discuss how to know when to use which tool.

Romantic Love

Bob and Barb 1983In our continuing series on deepening relationships in the month of October we had a good discussion on the topic of romantic love.  Our church in Los Angeles is talking about going deep this fall.  In this lesson, we looked at the different aspects of romantic love.  I shared the story of my engagement to Barb and showed our wedding picture from 32 years ago.  I included the picture just so you can see the mustache.  It’s a classic.  Romantic love is not just for movies and songs–we can have it in our lives as well.

Mentoring (Men)

Mentor 1The men also did the second part of our series on deepening relationships.  We had a very good discussion on the role of mentors in our lives. Called “Sacred Companions II” this lesson looks at what the Bible says about mentoring, discipling, having a teacher and getting guidance. Both the Scriptures and research indicate that people who seek out guidance experience more success in their endeavors. We are a church in Los Angeles that serves the needs of the people who live downtown. Join us Sundays at 11 AM at the Roybal Learning Center at the corner of 1st and Beaudry in downtown Los Angeles.

Sacred Companions Part 1

Written by Bob Harpole on . Posted in podcasts

FriendsThis autumn our church in Los Angeles is discussing going deeper.  In September we had a great time going deeper with God.  In the month of October we will be focusing on going deeper in our relationships.  The first two weeks are called “Sacred Companions.”  This first message is about spiritual friendships.  Surprisingly, there has been quite a bit of scientific research on the subject of friends.  Statistics show that friends are a vital part of our health, our sense of purpose and our ability to handle traumatic times when they arise.  God’s word also has a lot to say about the subject.  Enjoy this message about making spiritual friendships a priority in your life.

God’s Great Love

Written by Bob Harpole on . Posted in podcasts

God's Great LoveWe were so excited to have the Singles Fellowship lead our worship service this week.  They did a magnificent job of sharing and inspiring our entire church in Los Angeles.  The message was by Donald Taylor.  He spoke out of the book of Hosea and focused on the depth and breadth of God’s love for us.   It is nearly impossible to grasp in a world of conditional love the unconditional love that God has for us.
