Pastor Kevin continues this week in his Advent sermon series called, Season of Sanity. Family is supposed to be a place of comfort, but if there is shaming, abuse, addiction, or mental illness in the family, it instead becomes a rough place that sets up family members for a rough road in life. How can the rough roads be made smooth? The road home begins when we find, what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., called, our "soul force." That is when the soul finds it's worth in Christ. That is our deepest truth, and when it is found shame and fear become neutralized.
In this Podcast, Brett shared how he accepted Christ. How difficult and lonely it is going through a divorce. Brett shares what he has learned going through such pain. I asked him about all that he went through did he ever feel Jesus left him?
Pastor Ruben shares that back in the 6th grade, he was asked to speak at his graduation. Needless to say he was gripped with fear at the thought of speaking in front of all of those people. The reason he was so afraid was very simple. He knew how cruel kids could be. What we know or think we know of others has a direct effect on our actions. Today’s Gospel lesson reminds us that what we think we know about God will determine what type of life we live.
In this podcast, Al shares on how he needed to change after his wife was going to leave him. Now they will be celebrating 30 years of marriage! We also talk about racism in America. We end the podcast on his love for the Lord.
Christ is always in the midst of crisis calling us to respond as He would. How can we be ready?
