One of the most famous movie scenes/speeches of the last 20 years is William Wallace's (Mel Gibson) from the film "Braveheart". In it, the Scots are faced with the strength of the English army which has come to beat down their fight for freedom from their cruel and unfair rule. The odds are greatly against them. What will they do? Check out the film clip.
There are times when staying in a difficult, challenging situation seems too hard - especially when running away would be so much easier. But what story will your decision tell down the line?
Jesus never promised his followers (which include you and me) that life would be easy and without trials. In fact, he promised the opposite!
I have said this to you, so that in me you may have peace. In the world you face persecution. But take courage; I have conquered the world!” John 16:33
This Sunday, May 11th, we'll be continuing our series "My Story" with the focus on "I decided to STAY". In the face of what challenge in your life is God telling you to stay and work it through with His wisdom and strength? I hope you'll be able to join us.
On June 8th we'll be having at least one baptism as a part of the worship. I wanted to open this up to anyone else who would also like to be baptized on that day. If you're interested in talking about this, please let me know.
