Responding To Correction :: PODCAST

Presented on September 10, 2017 by Pastor Steve Shields at Curwensville Alliance

Have you ever seen someone doing something that was unproductive, offered a suggestion to help them, and been rebuffed? It happens to all of us. 

Do you know why that happens to all of us? Because all of us do it. None of us, by our own nature, like to be corrected.

This podcast speaks about how to overcome this tendency and become better in the process.


PODCAST: Eliminating Damaging Spiritual Selftalk

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church on 11/16/2014 by Pastor Steve Shields

One of the best things you can do for yourself is to examine the things you say to yourself. If you say bad things to yourself, e.g. “You’re such a loser,” eventually you’ll see the outcome of those words. Likewise, a person can repeat refrains to themselves concerning spiritual matters — concepts, not just about themselves, but about others and their interaction with the Christian community. Some of these kinds of statements can block blessings God wants to give us.

In this podcast, Pastor Steve looks at three things that God wants pastors to tell their people — and how easy it is to form barriers in our hearts to prevent our hearing these very things.
