Pathfinder Church | January 29, 2023 | Doug Mauss Disagreeing with other people is scary. It feels like it costs us peace or connection with others. So we avoid having “crucial conversations,” hoping that it will minimize our pain. Or we lash out in unproductive ways, harming others with our anger. Is there a better way to understand conflict and u…
 
Pathfinder Church | January 22, 2023 | Doug Mauss We live in an instant gratification, over-night success society, where only dramatic transformations & grand achievements get noticed. Which is why so many of our attempts to change end up in a wash of broken promises and unfinished projects. But what if instead of focusing on the grandiose, we shif…
 
Pathfinder Church | January 15, 2022 | Dion Garrett Gentle parenting and positive employee recognition are growing trends, but naysayers worry they’ll only make people soft. But do they? Could we achieve more if we were gentler with ourselves? Website | https://pathfinderstl.org Online Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/give Podcasts | https://path…
 
Pathfinder Church | January 8, 2022 | Doug Mauss We may have given up hope long ago for any lasting life change, but maybe our problem is not that we’re too weak-willed. Maybe we just need a healthy dose of realism when it comes to what it is we’re trying to change in the first place. Website | https://pathfinderstl.org Online Giving | https://path…
 
Pathfinder Church | January 1, 2023 | AJ Mastic What do you really want? Most of us are driven by what we don’t want more than what we do want, which creates a fuzzy picture of our desired future (vision) and leaves us relying on fear and shame as our motivators. How can being clear on this one question, “What do I really want?” be a game changer? …

Pathfinder Church | December 18, 2022 | Doug Mauss We are engaged in a lifelong fight against physical weakness and human mortality. It’s easy to think that if we improve our health and fitness, it will protect us against the frailty of our bodies, but does it really? What if true strength is found not through denying our weakness but by embracing …
 
Pathfinder Church | December 11, 2022 | Doug Mauss Our world is a complex place, and there are many things that we don’t understand. Often, we do our best to cope with this by oversimplifying problems, and eliminating grey areas from our thinking. But when we become close-minded and rigid, are we also closing ourselves off from God’s work in our li…

Pathfinder Church | December 4, 2022 | Dion Garrett It’s that time of the year when many families gather together, bringing feelings of joy, dread, or both! When God created humanity, He said that “it is not good” for us to be alone; yet the relationships we build are always imperfect. Why did God wire us with a deep emotional need for community th…
 
Pathfinder Church | November 27, 2022 | AJ Mastic All it takes is a birthday or a tragedy to remind us that life is short. We try to make the most of life by saying yes to a wide array of activites, experiences, and people, because part of us believes that a full life means a full calendar. Yet, isn’t there a point, where the more things we add to …

Pathfinder Church | November 20, 2022 | Doug Mauss The hardships and uncertainties we encounter in life are only the start. Much more of our suffering and anger comes from the fear of where these things will lead us and leave us. Because the future is by definition “unknown,” how can we stop worrying about it and over-preparing for it? How can we w…
 
Pathfinder Church | November 13, 2022 | Dion Garrett Most of our biggest struggles had their seeds planted a long, long time ago, in moments where we felt vulnerable, abandoned, neglected, alone, and overwhelmed by something in life. We can spend the rest of our lives (and lots of money in therapy) trying to unravel and recover from such things. Bu…
 
Pathfinder Church | November 6, 2022 | AJ Mastic Community of family and friends is a great gift, but many of life’s hardest things are still things you have to face alone. So, what does it mean that “God is with you!”? What does God’s presence actually mean when you’re in the middle of life’s darkest valleys? Website | https://pathfinderstl.org On…
 
Pathfinder Church | October 30, 2022 | Doug Mauss It’s an overwhelming time to be alive. Yet, we can be so focused on our present moment with all of our big problems, that we forget we are only a speck on the timeline of history. Even the biggest threats we face won’t be that significant in the grand scheme. After a few generations, most, if not al…
 
Some Assembly Required - Add It to Your Story (Week 6) Pathfinder Church | October 23, 2022 | Dion Garrett It’s encouraging to see and rejoice in other people’s successes (just scroll through your Instagram stories), or to have them rejoice in yours. Or in times of struggle, to be able to “share” your struggles with others, knowing that they will b…
 
Pathfinder Church | October 16, 2022 | Doug Mauss Sometimes church can seem like nothing more than an event where the professionals do their thing, and the rest of us are invited in to be the audience. And if that’s all church is, then understandably, we will find places where we feel more consequential. But what if we’re more than an audience—what…
 
Pathfinder Church | October 9, 2022 | Dion Garrett We’ve all had our fill of self-important clubs, each doing their own thing to justify their existence. If the church is just one more group of exclusive and cliquish people, then what’s the point? https://pathfinderstl.org/showit Website | https://pathfinderstl.org Online Giving | https://pathfinde…
 
Pathfinder Church | October 2, 2022 | Doug Mauss The church is filled with hypocrites. Abuses have been committed by even the most committed church goers. And even aside from the hypocrites and abusers, the church can be a place of hurt and conflict. If the church causes so much pain, why shouldn’t we try to avoid it entirely? Website | https://pat…
 
Pathfinder Church | September 25, 2022 | AJ Mastic These days, many assembly kits come with batteries included, so why isn’t life the same way? To find success in life, we all are forced to develop our own resources, find our own energy to sustain us through the difficulties. But as we encounter problems that feel insurmountable and overwhelming, m…
 
Pathfinder Church | September 18, 2022 | Doug Mauss Can the most important things in life be done on our own, or—like a child’s large Christmas present—is “some assembly required”? We often think we, and our lives, are “fine” on our own, but is that because we’re settling for a life that’s too small—something that falls short of our true destiny, o…
 
Pathfinder Church | September 11, 2022 | Dion Garrett We’re burned out because of the need to go it alone, and carve out (and control) our own good outcomes in life.

Pathfinder Church | August 28, 2022 | Doug Mauss Post-pandemic, we’ve gone right back to the busy lives and the overscheduled weeks. How do we have time for the important things?

Pathfinder Church | August 21, 2022 | AJ Mastic | Relationships are risky. Sometimes it’s easier to do something yourself, or pay someone for help—rather than open the doors of connection with our neighbors. But what if there were some simple tools that would help us make relationships easier and more rewarding? Website | https://pathfinderstl.org …
 
Pathfinder Church | August 14, 2022 | Dion Garrett | We all want a fulfilling life. So, we wear ourselves out seeking for it in our job, our efforts, our hobbies. If we’re just scrabbling together an existence, why is it worth all the effort? Website | https://pathfinderstl.org Online Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/give Podcasts | https://pathf…
 
Pathfinder Church | August 7, 2022 | AJ Mastic While many will say they aspire to be like Jesus (a noble pursuit!) there are other more accessible examples of people Pathfinders can grow into being. A woman named Priscilla and her husband, Aquila, are two such people. Making clear that imperfect isn’t an impediment to wholeness, they travelled arou…
 
Pathfinder Church | July 31, 2022 | Dion Garrett Ruth did a lot of questionable things on her journey, returning to her mother-in-law’s homeland after God delivered their family a heavy blow, courting the attention of a kinsman-redeemer to save her mother-in-law from disaster, and many other things. Along the way, God was directing her steps. Livin…
 
Pathfinder Church | July 24, 2022 | Doug Mauss Those who are able to connect people to others, not to be the focus of relationships themselves, wield great power and influence. Lydia’s life reveals that. A wealthy merchant, a gentile, and a woman, becomes significant because of her willingness to connect others. But in life it’s often difficult to …
 
Pathfinder Church | July 17, 2022 | AJ Mastic Focusing on the real-life needs of people is sometimes condemned as watered down or superficial. But a faith that does not help people with the stuff of life, isn’t very useful and certainly not transforming. Stephen and Philip were peers assigned to the seemingly “less spiritual” work of feeding widows…
 
Pathfinder Church | July 10, 2022 | Doug Mauss Paul had it made. His life was set as a very prominent and successful Pharisee. But when he became captured by the Gospel, he realized that the exclusivity and elitism of Pharisaical life was NOT in line with the heart of God. Paul’s life took a dramatic turn as he suffered a lot of misunderstanding an…
 
Pathfinder Church | July 3, 2022 | Doug Mauss As humans, it makes sense to us that leadership and power are naturally used for the benefit of the one wielding it. Authority is leveraged to increase one’s personal standing, influence, or wealth. Website | https://pathfinderstl.org Online Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/give Podcasts | https://pat…
 
Pathfinder Church | June 26, 2022 | Doug Mauss Martin Luther paved the way for the individual’s right to decide—he prioritized each believer’s conscience over the dictates of the church authorities and even over hundreds of years’ worth of traditions. How much authority should tradition have in our lives? Conversely, are we our own best decider—sho…
 
Pathfinder Church | June 19, 2022 | Doug Mauss Do people obey bosses because they’ve earned it, or because they’re the boss? Parents unquestionably are allowed to tell their kids what to do when they’re little, but when they grow up you can’t ground them anymore! Website | https://pathfinderstl.org Online Giving | https://pathfinderstl.org/give Pod…
 
Pathfinder Church | June 12, 2022 | Doug Mauss It is a noble cause to wield authority for the sake of protecting those who can’t protect themselves (James 1:20). However, the attempt to protect often veers into an attempt to dictate the actions of others. How can we walk the line of advocating for people without constraining their freedoms, or the …
 
Pathfinder Church | June 5, 2022 | Doug Mauss As always, gender continues to be a dividing line in both culture and faith. Did God design the genders differently, or is it merely a social construct that we are free to modify or reject? Should men have authority over women, or is that a patriarchal relic of the past? Website | https://pathfinderstl.…
 
Pathfinder Church | May 29, 2022 | Doug Mauss Our government has authority because it can enforce its laws by force. How do Jesus’ followers balance the tension between obeying or defying governmental dictates?

Pathfinder Church | May 22, 2022 | Dion Garrett We all have different feelings about authority. Some embrace it. Some resist it. But even though we like to think that we are the boss of ourselves, there is always some authority that we are submitting to, consciously or subconsciously. How do we recognize the true—often unspoken—authorities in our l…
 
Pathfinder Church | May 15, 2022 | Dion Garrett Freedom to explore your truest self You are a whole person, which means that if you let any part become too large (or ignore any part), your sense of identity becomes imbalanced. By developing your relational, physical, mental, vocational, financial, and spiritual self, you can not only experience a w…
 
Pathfinder Church | May 8, 2022 | AJ Mastic Freedom to explore your truest self Love is the most powerful force in the universe, and because of that, we can start believing we ARE who we LOVE or even who loves us. But what happens when your feelings change, when the object of your affection grows up, leaves, or dies? What happens when someone stops…
 
Pathfinder Church | May 1, 2022 | Doug Mauss Freedom to explore your truest self Too many of us let ourselves be defined by our success, careers, talents, or hobbies—or conversely, our mistakes, vices, sins, and shortcomings. It’s true that how we use our days can’t help but speak into our sense of being, but an identity built on “deeds” will be in…
 
Pathfinder Church | April 24, 2022 | AJ Mastic Freedom to explore your truest self Nature vs. nurture is an endless source of interest because we assume, “If I can just discover who I was genetically designed to be, then I’ll have something solid to build my sense of self around.” While genetics hasn’t yet given us the answers we crave, the good ne…

Pathfinder Church | April 17, 2022 | Dion Garrett Freedom to explore your truest self Which boxes do you check on the form? You know the ones where we have to define ourselves over and over again by how we vote, where our ancestors came from, by how much money we make, or our career path. Do you ever feel a little defiant when someone tries to put …

Pathfinder Church | April 10, 2022 | Doug Mauss Leading up to Jesus’ final days, we see a clear model for how we are to live. Not only does Jesus refuse to fight the crowds (As we saw last week, they were the wrong enemy), but he also shows us how to fight differently. It involves putting away the very things that we have relied on in the past for …
 
Pathfinder Church | April 3, 2022 | Dion Garrett When we’re feeling threatened, it’s natural to want to fight, and fight we shall. However, whom we are called to fight against may not be whom we think. When we make enemies of those who oppose us, we obscure the real enemy.
