Can You Feel It?

Can You Feel It?

October is all about being creative, and that’s exactly what our team was this month while creating the music video for “Can You Feel It?” The song is all about rhythm, dancing, creating, and bringing to life the creativity we all have inside of ourselves. The music video starts off with the dancers and backdrop all covered in splattered paint. The dancers begin painting with their hands, feet, spray bottles, water guns and brushes. But wait—they aren’t putting paint ON the wall they are... Read More

Continue Your Family Album All Year Long

Do you ever go back and look at your high school yearbooks? Or thumb through your wedding album or your kid’s baby books? Occasionally, I even like to read back through my old Facebook posts and remember what I was doing last year. There’s something special about taking a trip down memory road and seeing how far you’ve come. That’s the idea behind this month’s FX application and widget: the Family Album. This month, many of the families in your ministries built their own Family Albums, to... Read More

You Asked: Bottom Lines

There’s this one question that pops up from time to time—emailed or shared by smart leaders just like you. Why don’t we have God or Jesus in all of our Bottom Lines for 252?

Understanding just how many options there were out there, I asked him which features were most important to him to help narrow it down. He surprised me by saying that the main... Read More

Relationships

I was recently visiting with a man who, due to health reasons, had to sell his house and move to another state. He told me that he lost his “home.” He had lost his past.

He started to talk about the times they had shared, and the things he hopes for their future—together. I understand his sense of loss. But I also believe that he is realizing that the... Read More
The Bigger Story

The Bigger Story

We are hard-wired for story. From twos to teens—not to mention staff and parents—the best way to engage attention and create passion is through story. God didn’t give us a document of 1,001 commandments; He gave us a collection of stories. The Bible is full of adventure epics, love stories, history and tragedy, and comedy and poetry. Jesus has been described as “God who told stories.” Every day, we’re bombarded by the language of story, from advertisements and video games to movies and... Read More
