Vulnerability usually has a negative definition: to be threatened, exposed, susceptible to harm, to be a “sitting duck”. And yet, there’s an appealing kind of vulnerability. Don’t we all long to have relationships where we can be completely real, completely ourselves and still not fear judgement, rejection and condemnation? In this talk, Joseph reveals why the church has sometimes been the hardest place to find that kind of family and what to do to stop it.

With Much Power – The Power Pack http://www.josephbarkley.com/2017/06/28/with-much-power-the-power-pack/ Wed, 28 Jun 2017 16:40:06 +0000 http://www.josephbarkley.com/?p=8534

We all need to find our “People”—people who like what we like, believe in us, laugh with us, maybe share our values. And, when you find “your people”, you have a level of support and strength you can’t get alone. In this final talk of our series, Joseph reveals how we can have all the right “People” and still completely miss out on all the power. The life you want to lead, the difference you want to make needs the right team, but it also needs this one, crucial approach.

Everybody’s felt crushed by the pressures of life. Maybe it’s the kids. Maybe it’s your career. It could be some challenges in your relational world. For some of us, it’s just a little dark. You might even say “hopeless”. Where do you go? How do you get the energy and perspective you need to fight another day? There’s a power present in your life that people have tapped into for millennia. Discover the one practice that taps into it.

With Much Power – The Green Lantern http://www.josephbarkley.com/2017/06/14/with-much-power-the-green-lantern/ Wed, 14 Jun 2017 09:17:19 +0000 http://www.josephbarkley.com/?p=8525

One of the greatest superpowers we have is in our wallet. The way we save and spend our money impacts communities and climates around the world! In this talk, Joseph reveals one idea from Scripture that will celebrate the difference we can make with how we spend—and, if you practice this idea, you might discover a miracle God can’t wait to do in your own life.

With Much Power – Fighting the Forces of Evil http://www.josephbarkley.com/2017/06/07/with-much-power-fighting-the-forces-of-evil/ Wed, 07 Jun 2017 09:13:51 +0000 http://www.josephbarkley.com/?p=8522

Evil exists. Maybe you call it something different—maybe it’s “injustice” or “bigotry” or “endangerment” or “abuse” or “discrimination”—but there are forces that destroy. But, the only reason we notice evil or care about evil at all is because another power exists, burning within us: the power of justice. In this talk, Joseph reveals how all of us can activate this power in effective ways, face the bad guys and—though we don’t think about it as often—avoid creating our own small evil in the process.

With Much Power – Power Lines http://www.josephbarkley.com/2017/05/24/with-much-power-power-lines/ Wed, 24 May 2017 16:08:27 +0000 http://www.josephbarkley.com/?p=8512

As we start this growth series, can we just agree on something? Most of the problems facing our world today stem from an abuse of power. The wrong people seem to have it and good people seem to be corrupted by it. But the result is the same: People are hurt. So, would it better for people to avoid power? Avoid greatness? Jesus introduces one powerful principle that redeems power, awakens how much you actually have already and makes all of us want to see more of it.

Who Is Jesus – The Least and the Last http://www.josephbarkley.com/2017/05/16/who-is-jesus-the-least-and-the-last-2/ Tue, 16 May 2017 19:28:10 +0000 http://www.josephbarkley.com/?p=8504

In this last installment of our series, Joseph takes a honest look at the fatal choices religious people make. If religion leads people to give their lives unnecessarily, than let’s call it what it is: dangerous. Followers of Jesus are no exception in the world of religions. Christians have given their lives for their faith. But there’s one, clear, alarming distinction between HOW these faithful breathed their last and martyrs of every other tradition. Even if you never have to put your life on the line, can you understand what about was so different about Jesus that inspired them to give it all?

Who Is Jesus – The Least and the Last http://www.josephbarkley.com/2017/05/10/who-is-jesus-the-least-and-the-last/ Wed, 10 May 2017 14:46:25 +0000 http://www.josephbarkley.com/?p=8500

However you see Jesus, one thing is historically clear. Jesus saw the world in a new way. He saw things in people no one else did. He saw potential where others saw problems. He saw value where other people saw waste. He saw friends where others saw enemies. It’s not overstating to say Jesus’ perspective didn’t just change his world, it changed the way most of us see each other. Who was this man?

Who Is Jesus – The Low Down http://www.josephbarkley.com/2017/05/10/who-is-jesus-the-low-down/ Wed, 10 May 2017 14:40:30 +0000 http://www.josephbarkley.com/?p=8498

I wonder what the next generation will remember after we’re gone? Will it be innovation? Celebrities? Political tensions and breakthroughs? One mark this age may leave on history is the importance of doing good—everyone from high school students to Fortune 500 companies strive to enhance the world around them.
It’s humbling to think about—and we can’t gloss over it—but that’s not always been the mark Christians have left.
But is that the mark Jesus left? If so, maybe He’s not worth following. If not, then where’d so many go so wrong? Let’s get back to the source and see if we can’t find out.

Who Is Jesus – He’s Just So Weird http://www.josephbarkley.com/2017/05/10/who-is-jesus-hes-just-so-weird/ Wed, 10 May 2017 14:35:26 +0000 http://www.josephbarkley.com/?p=8494

Can we just admit that Christians can be an odd bunch? Crazy beliefs, crazy habits…and all that singing! In this message, Joseph launches a new growth series exploring a question on a lot of people’s minds—maybe one you think you already know the answer to, but a question that we think will help cut through a lot of the noise. Let’s really look at the question: Who is Jesus? Because, if you want to know what makes a religion or philosophy or practice distinct, a good place to start…is the START. The founder. And you thought Christians were odd!
