Are you fearful for the direction our world is headed? If so, you’re not alone! Fear is the one thing both Republicans and Democrats have in common these days.
Yet, our faith teaches us something very different. The affairs of this world matter, let there be no doubt about that. The problem is that sometimes we forget how much bigger God is than any of it. If God promises good for us, then why do we keep running around like Chicken Little, getting each other worked up about how the sky is falling?
Join us this Sunday as we discuss politics– but not in the way you think. Join us to talk about how a Christian ought to respond to the fear we see in the news these days, focusing on the God of love who calls us to something higher. Come learn a better, more human way to be!
