Welcome to the ACTS Podcast!

To abide in Christ means to keep up a habit of constant close communication with Him, always leaning on Him, resting Him, pouring out our hearts to Him, and using Him as our chief Fountain of life and strength, as our chief companion and best friend.  To have His words abiding in us, is to keep His sayings and precepts continually before our memories and minds, and to make them the guide of our actions and the rule of our daily conduct and behavior. (J. C. Ryle)

A transition is the in-between period of life development of a Christ follower. In a transition, individuals consolidate past learning, process issues of character, deepen convictions and values, and are prepared for the next phase of their development.  Transitions bring closure to the past in order to move forward to the next stage of personal development.  (Walling, Terry B.: Stuck! Navigating the Transitions of Life and Leadership, Church Smart Resources, (2008, p. 8)

Dr. Wayne Cordeiro tells a story in his book, Dream Releasers: Over the years I have closely watched several world-class tennis players, as well as many Olympic figure skaters. In nearly every case, I have seen a common practice: they always travel with a coach. ...A Dream Releaser is a kind of coach.  Coaches can make the difference between winning and losing.  Often, the greatest ideas, the most monumental thoughts and the most creative answers lay suffocating beneath the rubble of mistakes, character flaw, the fear of failure, a history of rejection, the fear of accountability or personality quirks.  These are dream killers. (2002, p. 98)
