Upcoming Sermon Series
(starting November 28th)
There are a lot of things people are afraid of; spiders, the dark, heights, being alone. You get the picture. You may even have some things you are afraid of. Fear isn't wrong, in and of itself. It's a response to a perceived danger we encounter. The problem comes when we let our fears control us. We can feel powerless in the face of our fears, but the reality is we have a choice of how we're going to respond.
Four times in the Christmas stories recorded in the Gospels, an angel appears to someone and some of the first words they speak are, "Do not be afraid." Which tells me that these people were afraid. We are going to spend the four weeks of Advent (11/28-12/19) looking at the choices those individuals made in the face of their fears and what we can learn about facing our own fears.
