|Treating the Peter Pan Syndrome|
|Last year the Pew Research Center made headlines when it reported that, for the first time in more than a century, more young people in their 20s were living with Mom and Dad than with their husband, wife, or domestic partner. According to the U.S. Census, in 1960, only one in six 25-year-olds still lived with his or her parents. In 2014, one in three did!|

|Christ and culture: five views|
|The problem has challenged the Church during her entire existence: How are Christians to engage and relate to the surrounding culture? How should we then live? What does it look like to be in the world but not of it?
H. Richard Niebuhrís classic book, Christ and Culture, has influenced or at least informed the discussion, notably among Western evangelicals, since it was published in 1951. Niebuhr proposed five models, which he labelled as 1) Christ against culture; 2) Christ of culture; 3) Christ above culture; 4) Christ and culture in paradox; and 5) Christ the transformer of culture.

|How Millennials Are Shaping The Future Of Social Entrepreneurship And Technology|
|In 2011, the terms 'social entrepreneurship' and 'social business' began to make weekly appearances in mainstream media (see recent Huffington Post coverage here, here, and here). These startups are at the forefront of the 'new economy.' They make money by solving social and environmental problems, and they do not fit into the traditional nonprofit or for-profit mold. When I entered the workforce 5 years ago, I mostly heard that my generation was 'difficult to work with,' 'savvy with that social media thing,' and 'free-spirited.' Now people see us differently.|

|GENERATION 14 Written by: Gen 14|
|We take what we do very, very seriously. We want to be the best group that has ever existed on the planet. When people say the 'Beatles,' 'Doors,' or the 'Grateful Dead,' we want them to say, GEN-14!" (Brutha Rich).
By their style of clothing and presentation on stage, Gen-14, are true hip-hop rappers. If you watch them more closely, however, when they interact with people in the crowd, each other, or just an average "Joe," you notice there is something supernaturally different about them. Their countenance, words of affirmation, and most importantly, their heart after God, set them apart as revivalists, catalysts, and transformers of the world. "We are called to be a generation apart," Brutha Rich often says, who is a forerunner in Christian hip-hop, one of the most celebrated music genres of our time.

|Battle of Inheritance Part 2 Written by: Eric Johnson|
|ur core value needs to be that God intended us to enjoy the fruit all the time. Psalm 68:19, "Ö he daily loads us with benefits." Godís desire is that we eat all the time. The Church has a tendency to believe that the fruit is for us to enjoy for a single moment; we donít realize it is bait that is meant to lure us to the source, so we can pick the fruit at will.

|The Heart of a Steward Written by: Jerry Couglin|
|Although these are extreme examples, I use them to illustrate a simple pointóthat hoarding it all is poor stewardship just as much as spending it all is. And in reality one can exercise a lack of stewardship at any point in between these extremes. |

|A Supernatural Lifestyle Written by: Chris Overstreet|
|The normal Christian life is to live life in the supernatural. God is not looking for a vessel of gold or silver to use, but is simply looking for willing vessels (I Sam. 6:7), young or old. He looks at our hearts.|
