80’s fads they NEED to bring back

Posted on: 06/24/19 3:19 PM | by Jonathan McKee

(and a few that are better long gone)

I was in 4thgrade when I entered the 80’s.

Good times.

I have nostalgic memories of gliding along to Journey at the roller rink, or watching Family Ties and the Cosby Show (yeah… before “Cosby” was a bad word) on Thursday nights with the family!

Looking back, I can’t help but wonder where some of those fun fads have gone, like guys wearing no socks with a suit, or girls with bangs so high they added 6-inches to their height (okay, maybe I’m glad that one is gone) Continue reading “80’s fads they NEED to bring back” »

My sermon about battling anger

Posted on: 06/10/19 7:15 PM | by Jonathan McKee

What is the secret to battling anger?

That’s the sermon I preached this past weekend, Part II of a five week series I’m teaching about loving others… which is really about how we need to stay connected to Jesus so HIS strength flows through us (yes… king of like a Jedi!)

Last week my BIG IDEA was: When authentic faith saturates us, love leaks out.

Yesterday my BIG IDEA was: When I’m tempted to lose control, the answer isn’t self control… it’s taking the time to give HIM control. (I’ve posted an updated version on the TALKS/SERMONS page of TheSource4YM.com HERE.)

Next week my topic is Forgiveness… and I’m flirting with this for the BIG IDEA: Forgiveness is the key unlocking us from the torture-chamber of bitterness

Classic 2 minute video trending on YouTube right now… probably in part to Craig Groechel’s amazing post where he played this video and talked about it. (Shout out to Craig- he can preach!)

The video is from “Sister Pooh,” and let me just say this: She is an amazing communicator!

Watch this quick little video, if you haven’t already stumbled upon it Continue reading “You gonna get ate up” »
