Sunday we will focus on something that drives away fear. We have
recently read so much in the news about fears beyond reason
in many Americans reacting to the spread of the Ebola
virus. I think you know where my sermon will go, but it should be
interesting and helpful to explore the life draining power of fear and how
to de-thrown it.
soul eroding power of fear is what Jesus addressed with his followers when they
faced real threats to their lives, threats that actually ended up happening to
them. But Jesus had a clear and uplifting way of helping them (and us) to
live without being derailed or sidelined by fear.
hope you join us for a great time of worship. I look forward to seeing
