Pastor Meko taught us about the evils of anger. Seeking dark global agendas stream rolling over goodness, truth, and freedom throughout the world is more than enough to make anyone feel angry, negative, and even enraged. We as a humanity, along with all our rights, are under siege and the most common response to being attacked is either through anger and aggression, or fear and retreat-which is based on a raw fight or flight reaction. While it sometimes seems there is no other way to respond, there is danger of becoming the very thing we've set out to defeat if we act through aggression or hatered in any way. Just like in the video when anakin starts to turn. He let his anger become the best of him.

The value that stood out the most was "believing the best" about other people. Think about that for a minute. What does believing the best actually mean? How often when we talk or relate with someone do we believe or assume the absolute best about the other person? What could happen if we did? What would it take to get there? I believe there are three areas we can all improve that will make a difference. Those areas are: How We View Ourselves, How We View Others, and How We Relate and Communicate With Others. The apostle Paul understood as well as anyone what it was like to be deserted, doubted, envied, distrusted and disdained — even by his fellow Christians. If anyone should have had a guarded, cynical view of people, it was Paul. Paul’s confidence wasn’t in God’s people, but in God who indwells his people. He learned to see fallible people through God’s infallible eyes. He was also living out the Golden Rule of treating people how he would want to be treated. All of us want others to believe the very best of us, so why are we reluctant to extend that same courtesy to others? We often think that by not believing the best, we are protecting ourselves from hurt, but this usually becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. When we entertain suspicious, judgmental or critical thoughts, people will most likely mirror those same attitudes and assumptions back toward us. Conversely, if we think kindly and positively toward them — assuming the best — then they usually pick up on that and strive to live up to our noble expectations.

Pastor Joshua Kapchinsky Profile Picture
Pastor Josh talks about the gospel according to star wars called discovering who you really are. Who we really are is buried under layers of a protective shield created by years of building a defense against society around us. Most of us have been conditioned by the world, friends, family and others to think like the world. Or we have been in dysfunctional families that didn't give us a chance to love ourslves unconditionally. 
God put a piece of divine nature or creative energy inside us. If we meditate and look for this, we will discover who we really are. We are a beautiful being, a child of Light often smothered by darkness. Negative, dark and evil forces try to destroy us from birth. This is to put out the spark of creative energy inside us, so we will be miserable and fearful in a world of evil doers. Self forgiveness, acceptance and unconditional love of self and others sets us free to see who we really are.

Pastor Larry talks about Living With Victorious Intent. Living with intent is living a life that is healthy and purposeful, but also joyful. It's asking ourselves what will make ourselves happy. Intents come from our soul, whereas goals come from our mind. Finding Intent is about asking yourself three main questions: Who am I? What do I want? How can I serve? Ultimately you have to ask yourself what makes you happy, it's often very different from all the external expectations people have. We don't have to be the Superhero, but we can do great things in our everyday lives. Intent doesn't have to be all about meditation and sould searching. It's supposed to be fun. It's all about being joyful and happy and free.

Pastor Larry Talks about The Power Of Christmas. The power of christmas says in Matthew 1:21:  “She will bear a Son; and you shall call his name Jesus, for it is he who will save his people from their sins.  Now all this took place that what was spoken by the lord through the prophet might be fulfilled: saying, ‘Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel.’  Which, translated, means ‘God with us.’  And Joseph arose from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took her as his wife, and kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a son; and he called his name Jesus.”
