Ponder these questions after you listen to the message:  

  1. Can you share a story where things didn’t go so well and you wanted a fresh start?

  2. What are some things that you tend to pin your hopes on today?

  3. Why do you think that the messages of today's politicians and other leaders resonates so well with us?  What do we hear that we hold onto?

  4. How do we, as Christians, reconcile following the ways of Jesus and participating in today’s culture?
