All of us know what a crucial role music plays in most weekly worship gatherings.
But in this episode, we talk with two worship leaders whose worship planning does not begin or end with music.
Laura Dingman creative arts director at The Creek, Indianapolis, Indiana, describes how the church moved from a sermon-centered to a story-centered model for worship planning. The result is worship experiences that engage worshippers in new and more meaningful ways.
Join editor Mark A. Taylor December 10 as he asks Laura, along with Tom Harrigan, worship minister at The Creek, to describe their church’s fresh approach.
We’ll discuss not only their philosophy and strategy but also specific ideas for touching worshippers in new ways at your congregation.

Tonight’s topic is one that might ruffle a few feathers but one I think needs to be discussed.
Join us as we discuss a few very common questions: Is it ever Ok for a woman to hit, slap, punch, kick or otherwise hurt a man and the man not hit back? Is it ever Ok for a man to hit or hurt a woman? What if she’s stronger than he is or out-weighs him? If he hits back, is it ever self-defense? When do you think a man becomes a victim of abuse? How do the dynamics change in a same sex relationship?

How does a Christian leader maintain integrity?
Four significant Christian leaders we know answered that question by looking to each other.
For more than a decade, these guys have vowed to get together, stay in touch with each other, and hold each other to standards of holiness that guard and guide their ministries and their personal lives.
Host Mark A. Taylor will ask them to explain how this works, in this lively discussion with all four of them . . .
Ben Cachiaras, senior pastor with Mountain Christian Church, Joppa, Maryland
Tim Harlow, senior pastor with Parkview Christian Church, Orland Park, Illinois
Eddie Lowen, lead minister with Westside Christian Church, Springfield, Illinois
Greg Nettle, president of Stadia, Irvine, California.
Read Eddie Lowen's description of how this group works in the October Christian Standard. (Find it in our digital edition via the free Christian Standard app for your phone or tablet.) Then come ready for insight--and probably several laughs--in a discussion you'll want to hear and share.
"In a world of polarized extremes, the most difficult position isn't pumping your fist for one extreme or the other, but moving to the middle to shake hands in the radical center, embracing the truth on both sides of an issue."
That's the position of month's guest, Ben Cachiaras, who will talk with host Mark Taylor about all the implications and possibilities for embracing the genius of the "and."
Jesus was both fully human AND fully God, he points out. Jesus challenges us to teach believers AND preach to unbelievers AND do ministry in the world.
Read Ben's challenging article, along with those from several others, in the June issue of Christian Standard. And then tune in to see if you are one of those Cachiaras describes as "a new breed of Christian leader today . . . fed up with simplistic answers in a complex world."
