Dr. Parrott explains a challenging passage of Scripture, Colossians 3:1-11. Mark Twain quipped, “It is not the parts of the Bible I don’t understand that trouble me, it is the parts I do understand.” The passage Dr. Parrott helps us deal with is clear and easy to understand, but hard to work out in our lives. Join Dr. Parrott’s Sunday School class as he helps all of us deal with how to put away bad behavior and negative attitudes as we live out the live of Jesus inside us.View More “Jesus is Life to Me” Colossians 3:1-11
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what God wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.View More Where’s My Place of Service? – Richard Leslie Parrott, Ph.D.

When one thinks of Richard, the words that come to mind are: Well-read, articulate, extemporaneous, gentle, and passionate.
In talking one-on-one with him you’ll quickly discover his deep seated passion. His passion is helping others find their purpose in life. Their soul purpose. Uncorking that passion in front of an audience produces an internal “kaboom”. It’s pure chemistry when a very gifted, passionate public speaker interacts with an audience. Somehow, Richard doesn’t talk at you from the lectern but rather he engages you in a personal conversation. He can say more in 5 minutes than some do in an hour. Yes, he’s that good.
Someday, hopefully soon, TED or Willow Creek’s Global Leadership Summit will invite him to speak at their event. And when they do, all I want for Christmas, is a first row seat. Kaboom!View More To-Do or Not To-Do – Richard Leslie Parrott Ph.D.
