020-In The Larger Story

3/13/2019
It's so tempting to lose sight of our place in the Larger Story. The Enemy loves to reduce us to our small stories; that is, that we are all alone to deal with the hell that is in front of us, that it never ends, and it is all purposeless. Think about it. When you are at your worst, you have become completely self absorbed, lost sight of God's redemptive purposes, and long forgot your God-given unique and crucial role and settled into hopeless resignation. In this episode, Charlie, Tim and...

2/12/2019
Tim, Alan, and Charlie have been leading a group of guys through John Eldredge's Wild at Heart Live Boot Camp videos every other Tuesday night at RiverBlade Knife and Fly Shop in Boiling Springs, SC. We are breaking each video into about 30-minute sections. We've just finished the first video, The Heart of a Man. So far, we've discussed our response to an adventure to live and a battle to fight. Tonight, we reflect on, a beauty to rescue. Oftentimes, we take our need for validation to Eve,...

016-The Heart’s Need For Adventure

1/30/2019
Tim, Alan, and Charlie have been taking a group of guys through John Eldredge's Wild at Heart Live Bootcamp Videos on Tuesday nights. Society at large can’t make up its mind about men. Having spent the last thirty years redefining masculinity into something more sensitive, safe, manageable and, well, feminine, it now berates men for not being men. Boys will be boys, they sigh. As though if a man were to truly grow up he would forsake wilderness and wanderlust and settle down, be at home...

015-The Image Of Jesus We’ve Inherited Shapes Our Relationship With Him

1/18/2019
We've all inherited images of Jesus. They've come from church, cultural expressions during holiday celebrations, TV shows, greeting cards, and our own family. The chances that we've misunderstood who Jesus truly is are pretty high. Think about it...When you think of Jesus, or the men you are told represent Christian maturity, do Fred Rogers and Ned Flanders come to mind? You know, Jesus meek and mild, in clean robes, neat hair, with a soft, delicate voice, staring heavenward. But, what...

014-Get In The Boat (God With Us)-John 6:16-35

8/5/2018
So after the feeding of the 5000, as Jesus commands, the disciples hop in the boat and head toward Capernaum. They face a trial in the boat, not as punishment, but to breakthrough the self-sufficiency that was so prominent in their lives as exhibited at the miracle of the fish and loaves. Nothing like paddling through another violent storm for 12 hours, without God, to only go 3 or 4 miles, to bring you to the end of your rope. I’m sure they were exhausted, confused, and a bit angry. But,...

013-Ain’t No Rest For The Weary-John 6:1-21

7/31/2018
What is it about being in the midst of difficulty that makes us forget all the ways Jesus has come through for us in the past? What is it about difficulty that makes us feel so alone? Our self-sufficiency rises to the surface as if that is going to help us meet the challenge. “If it is going to be, it is up to me.” So, Jesus is just going to expose that in John 6:1-21. Out of that, we learn that God can shatter our pint-sized expectations and small faith if we would learn to bring Him what...

008-INTERVIEW WITH ALAN WELCHEL-FIGHTING FOR A FISH

5/23/2018
Today New 4RMations’ team member, Alan Welchel, and Charlie Vensel talk about what it looks like to be fathered by God. Like just about everything else in life, when it comes to raising children, we cannot really offer what we do not have. Through death and/or divorce, Alan and Charlie both lacked critical masculine influence at the times they needed most. Often, they both come up against what that feels like in being fathers to their own children. But, God the Father is more than willing...

This is Episode 7, and the fourth and final episode in a series of podcasts entitled, What’s This 4Rs Thing? In the earlier three episodes, my friend and ministry co-founder, Tim McNamara and I, talked about our ministry’s name. It is spelled differently than it sounds. It is the word “New”, the number 4, then the letters R-M-A-T-I-O-N-S. So, what is this 4Rs thing? Well, the 4Rs are: Relationship, Rescue, Restoration and Release. And we see them as a 4-fold approach to having a...
