God's Message to His People in an Out-of-Control World

08.20.17 - Pastor Gary Georgeson - The ugly bigotry and violence in Charlottesville, the terrorist attacks in Barcelona, the escalation of threats from North Korea are all extremely unsettling.  As Christians, we can feel powerless…captive to social and political events unfolding around us.  Do you ever feel like a stranger in a strange land? A refugee in a Godless culture? I do. We can be tempted to despair or denial on one hand, or easy spiritual platitudes on the other.

How should we as God’s people understand our calling in today’s culture?  What is our message to be in this hour?  What is our action together to be toward our nation and our world?

This message, from the book of Jeremiah, will encourage and inspire you to live out the Lord’s purposes today.
