Don’t settle for less.
Don’t sell yourself short.
Don’t be rushed into a feeling, a decision, an opinion.
Don’t let anyone talk you down.
Drop the mic often.
Prioritize, for our time on earth is short.
Think for yourself.
Find your vision. Listen.
Do not hide tears; they’re yours.
Trust God. Take heart. Keep passion.
Fight the good fight, fellow traveler.
Hello beloved wonderful friends!
This is a message I preached for the lively, lovely people of Refuge Full Gospel.
It’s called: Before The L-Word, Let’s Talk About The F-Word: Love, Faith, and Purpose.
It’s about dating and relationships, and asking the hard questions about faith & life before pursuing love.
Before the sermon, I offer a prayer for Ferguson, Israel, Iraq, and Robin Williams, because I didn’t want to gloss over this in church.

Some things I talk about are: The mistake we make when we focus on the methods & techniques of Christian dating, the way we hyper-romanticize mission trips and marriage, important questions to ask before pursuing our feelings and emotions, theological wisdom from Taylor Swift, how to share oxygen when you’re drowning underwater, and going after the absolute greatest adventure of our lives together.
Be blessed and love y’all!
