Sermon: Keeping the Valve Open

Sermon: Keeping the Valve Open

In this short sermon clip, Greg Boyd talks about Paul’s writings on getting our reality to line up with what God says is real. The full sermon discusses how God’s design for creation is beautiful. But, sometimes, we don’t follow God’s design for our life. In this sermon, Greg and Vanessa Williams address the battlefield in our mind and how to keep God’s goodness flowing to us. In addition, Greg gives a Kingdom response to the Boston Marathon bombings.

You can view the full sermon on the Woodland Hills sermon resource page.
