Lessons Your Mother Taught You

Presented by Pastor Steve Shields at Curwensville Alliance Church on 5/12/2019

In the past 20 years, I’ve presented a Mother’s Day sermon every couple years. Something I don’t do is preach about how to be a good mom, because not all of us are not moms. I am not a mom. Instead, I try to take something from motherhood that helps us understand God better. That’s why we go to church, right? To worship and better understand God.So that’s what I want to do today.

In this podcast, I take three lessons our moms taught us about everyday stuff and draw some eternal meaning from them.

You see, whether she knew it or not, as your mom was telling you wise things, she was fulfilling an important role in your life. She was speaking wisdom – wisdom that comes from God – into your life.

This podcast speaks of three of those lessons – and applies them to the eternal nature of your life.

Embracing & Avoiding Vulnerability :: Transitions

Presented at Curwensville Alliance by Pastor Steve Shields on 5/5/2019

How do you feel about vulnerability?

I would guess your answer would depend, largely, on your experiences.

If someone has taken advantage of you and injured you, vulnerability may be something you avoid. If people have treated you with tenderness in difficult times, you may not be frightened by vulnerability at all.

My guess is that most of us are in the former group, not the later.

This podcast is designed to help us transition our perspective on vulnerability so that we can use it to our advantage and to glorify God.
