Pastor Bo Stern joins the podcast to discuss the end of the Lord's prayer , explaining how the earliest manuscripts don't include it. What do we teach about the inerrency of scripture? Does God tempt us or not? Bo dives into these topics and more in this week's podcast.
Casey, Ben and Evan discuss prayer and how we can find contentment in prayer as we submit to God. A discussion on the Lord's Prayer, "Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."
This week, we took the podcast live to a workshop at the Foursquare North Pacific District Conference in Beaverton Oregon.

With a live Q&A.
Pastor Steve Mickel joins the podcast for a fascinating discussion on how the church should look and act in culture, and the difference between a politically powerful religious subculture and the way of Jesus.
Pastor Steve Mickel is back to discuss the move that Church has made from the center of community life to the fringe. What can be done to bring the message of the Gospel into culture in a way that matters?
Pastor and Author Bo Stern stops by to discuss her experience as a preacher and pastor (a traditionally male role), what it means to live wholeheartedly, and why the gospel needs to work in and out of the church.
Immigration. Racism. Politics. With the nation polarized, what is the church's role? Should we make a stand on hot button issues, or stay out of the fray? Pastor Mike discusses his message on enemies in the Psalms as we dive into the question of adversaries, conflict, and political division inside the church.
Trusting God (or anyone else) is difficult in today's self sufficient culture. After a week off, Behind the Message is back with Pastor Steve Mickel to discuss what it means to really trust God with our lives.
