Cribs: Rethinking Family

We’re starting a brand-new series this week and I’m getting excited—and scared.

See, God is taking me down a new thought path.

For way too long, we’ve implied in our teaching that if we can create the perfect home environment and be the perfect parents, we can raise perfect kids.

Problem is, there are no perfect homes, no perfect kids, and definitely no perfect parents. So how do us screwed-up parents living in screwed up homes make it work? Do we have a shot at raising solid kids who follow Jesus and live purpose-filled lives?

I think so.

And if you join us this week (or starting next week on the iCampus), we’ll look at how I believe we screwed-up parents can raise kids who just maybe will be less screwed up than we are.
