Matt Chandler, the pastor (who I love) of the Village Church in Highland, Texas is preaching through what their church has called Family Traits. They did this series a couple of years ago and have come back to it a second time to solidify their church once again around those things which they are closest and most important to their church as a family. Matt is an amazing preacher with depth that I have heard in very few others, never mind the fact that he is so young. He exalts Jesus, condemns sin, and encourages true life. I would encourage everyone to subscribe to this podcast, it is available at www.thevillagechurch.net.

Some quotes from Pastor Chandler from the third sermon in this series, Christian Spirituality:

“The church begins to boast in what is not ours to boast in. The truth of the Gospel, if it is anything else is this it is not about you…If it was a movie we have a seven second role in it…we are not they story, the story is the redemption and restoration of the world.”

“My call as a believer in Christ is not to built a coffee house in the church and tell everyone they should come to it, but rather to walk outside of these walls and be in coffee houses around town.”
