In short, how would Jesus approach competitive sports? We again welcome Athletics Director Bill Spratley as we continue our discussion of competition.
What drives us to compete with one another? Where does this competitive nature come from? Is there a biblical basis for this competitive nature? LPA Athletics Director Bill Spratley joins us to answer these questions and discuss the philosophy of competition.
Teach us to pray... While it is a command, it is really a question -- a plea. What did Jesus teach his disciples when they asked Him for this important lesson. Student Life Director Chris Miller joins today to discuss the way Jesus instructs his disciples to pray, and the significance of the first two words of the Lords' Prayer: "Our... Father."
Seniors of the Class of 2020 had their culminating semester expectations upended. How have the graduates been affected, reacted, and processed?

How should students (of all ages) respond when hopes fall short of expectations? Teacher Gina Brewer joins today to offer encouragement from Romans 12 and to discuss the importance of young people finding and resting in an enduring hope in Christ.

When facing difficult times - a global health crisis, for example - it can be easy to become anxious about our situation. But, what does the Bible say about fear and anxiety? How are Christians to respond to trying times? What comfort do we have that can relieve these anxieties? Lake Pointe Academy teacher and athletics director Bill Spratley joins us today to discuss these questions.
How should believing students respond to the current pandemic? What kinds of ministry opportunities exist in a time of quarantine, lock-down, and social distancing?
