How People Change

So we've just cracked the beginning of our 180º series and we've already received some great feedback.  In part one of the series, we looked at why we often end up doing things we don't intend to do and why we end up not fulfilling our resolutions.  Ultimately, it's our direction, not intention, that determines our destination.  And if you don't like your destination, the best thing you can do is turn around.

If you want to read more about how to make change happen in your life, Andy Stanley has a great book called The Principle of the Path.  It's an easy and meaningful read, and you can pick it up here.

Part 2 of 180º is online now here and also available for download on iTunes.  As usual, all our messages are available online or through iTunes free of charge. 

Thanks for the early feedback.  Why not bring a friend with you next weekend?  In Barrie, we're talking about responsibility versus blame.  You can preview the Orillia message on trust and suspicion here.

What are you finding encouraging about the series?  What would you like to hear more about?

    What i find encourageing about this series is it makes me think honestly about peoples behavours and the results of our choices we have made over our lifetime…. I do have so much trust in God, from experiences in my life that I can track as well, however, i really struggle with the trust issue…this series encourages me to keep trying and to keep bettering myself and my understandings…. The series is giving me a new perspective!

    May also say Carey, as a newcomer in Orillia in Oct/09, Connexus has given me an outlet to learn and develope spiritually. YOU help me understand scripture and your sermons help me connect with god and want to learn more. I feel very happy every week when I hear your messages!

    I do attend church by myself, however I just wanted to let you know that i have obtained Dave Ramsey’s books, some cd’s, and DVD’s, and my husband & I have committed to a TOTAL MONEY MAKEOVER!! We love Dave Ramsey and I KNOW God brought Connexus to my life at a time when I am ready to make some changes in various area’s, this being one of them!

    I apologize for being so long winded, i just really feel blessed that you & Connexus and all your staff are available to my family….it is a very welcome addition to my life after so much pain and no hope… Keep up your great work, and your unselfish teachings of the lord to us, you have given me hope again, thank you.

    Regards and blessings,

    ps ( I didn’t attend church on a regular basis prior to Connexus, but always had questions and always eager to learn more… Connexus is filling this hole for me, just wanted to let you know that!)
