The full version of each posting can be found at

Note: Feel free to forward this to friends, family, etc. as a way to introduce them to Stan,  S. Tory Teller, and the conversations about faith, discipleship, and what it means to be a Christian.


Monday, August 29 (Are you holding up both signs?) — John 3:16 and John 17:3 go hand-in-hand. What does that mean for our lives here?

Tuesday, August 30 (Caution: faith can be fragile; handle with care) — We are to be careful to not destroy another person’s faith by emphasizing what is unimportant in the big picture.

Wednesday, August 31 (Don’t get bored with repetition) — God repeats Himself to us because we don’t listen and/or we forget what He wants us to know. Don’t get bored with the repetition.

Thursday, September 1 (Weeds will choke out produce) — In a garden, weeds will choke out what we want to grow. Weeds in our lives will choke out what God wants to produce. Get rid of those weeds!

Friday, September 2  (Can’t or won’t?) — When we don’t do what God asks, is it because we can’t do it or because we choose not to do it? A lesson from the rich young ruler.
