“The very best leaders I know wrestle with words until they are able to communicate their big ideas in a way that captures the imagination, catalyzes action, and lifts spirits. They coin creeds and fashion slogans and create rallying cries, all because they understand that language matters.”

– bill hybels from the book “Axiom”



Creative Chaos

Last week we covered the song, “Whatever it Takes” by Lifehouse to kick off our “The Moment of Truth” marriage series. This week we’re talking about communication and we’re covering John Mayer’s “Say”. It’s funny because we really don’t do many covers but it just worked out that way on this series. In addition, we added in clips from “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” with Brangelina. It has some good counseling scenes. Also, for a teaching opener we play “Moment of Truth” montage videos like this one.

The Moment of Truth

I happen to be flipping through the channel’s and found this show on fox, “The Moment of Truth”. Have you seen it? It was intense. I saw the show that everyone was talking about where the wife had to answer some tough questions about her marriage. Here’s a clip…

We’re doing “The Moment of Truth” as a marriage series next month. Robbie is going to be teaching on topics such as Bonding, Communication, and Parenting as it applies to marriage. He started blogging about this too. You can check it out here.

Here’s where we need you’re help. Give us some feedback on some questions we could use that would spark thought and maybe even make people squirm a bit. Here’s an example, “Have you ever used sex as a form of manipulation?” or “Do you ever wish you wouldn’t have had kids?”. That kind of stuff. I want to hear what you got. I need you to pull through for me on this one, blog world. Be creative. Be provocative. Start commenting. Go!!!
