PODCAST: What Is Your Superpower?

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church by Pastor Steve Shields on 3/1/2015

If you could have any superpower, what would you want? Invisibility? The ability to fly? Great strength?

Actually, you have a superpower. It’s given you by God. Using it is in your best interest. Listen here to uncover your superpower.


PODCAST: How to Get to Where You Need to Be…

Presented 2/22/2015 at Curwensville Alliance Church by Pastor Steve

Ever been in a bad place? I don’t mean in a bad neighborhood. I mean in a bad place, spiritually speaking? Jonah knows what that’s like.

From the belly of the great fish, Jonah recognizes he’s the wrong place and takes steps to change that. His model can serve us when we aren’t where we need to be.


PODCAST: The Love of God in… Jonah?

Presented 2/16/2015 at Curwensville Alliance by Pastor Steve

Often, we miss the point of things that are presented to us. Take this video as an example.

Where were you, in the video, when you realized what they were selling? The end, huh? It’s that way with the Book of Jonah. The drama is so good that, like this commercial, it can eclipse the message.

This podcast clarifies the message of Jonah, showing the conflict between the way God loves and the way humankind loves.


The story of Jonah is as important to our generation as it has been to any before.
