Growth is Risky Business

Posted by Stephen Setzer on

Last Sunday we began a sermon series entitled "The Journey," in which we began to follow the Israelites on their journey from slavery to freedom - from Egypt, where they had spent 400 years, to modern-day Israel, called "The Promised Land" in the Old Testament Scriptures. It's a journey that is filled with highs and lows, moments in which the people of Israel feel alive with the presence of God and moments in which they feel abandoned and alone. It's a journey that is markedly similar to our own. It's a journey that's filled with remembrance, risk, and reward.

We are on a journey, my friends. It's called life. And undoubtedly, we are on a journey that has involved, or is currently involving, the element of risk. But to be quite sure, nothing worth having has ever been gotten without us risking something in the process. I'm excited to be exploring this risky business on Sunday morning in the sermon at 8, 9, and 11 AM. (Remember, we go back to our three-service schedule this week.) I hope that you join me for what will be a wonderful (and maybe even risky!) worship service this week. 

Invite a friend to come along with you. 

See you on Sunday.
