Our world is loud in our ears right now, isn’t it? It seems that wherever we turn, everyone is shouting their opinions and fears about a whole litany of divisive and explosive topics.
Perhaps you feel angry and unsettled; maybe even though you know it will likely be fruitless, you find yourself entering into heated and damaging conversations, desperate to be heard, longing for truth to be upheld.
Perhaps you are weary, wounded, and tempted to shut down from not only other people who have hurt you, but also from God. Maybe you’re struggling to even know how to pray or if God will hear.
Perhaps you feel afraid or hopeless. It feels like the world is coming apart at the seams everywhere you look, and you are wrestling with the temptation to despair.
Perhaps you’re just tired of it all.
Starting the week of August 28, we are beginning a six-week teaching series called Holy Sexuality. We will be looking at God’s design, our brokenness, and what the Bible has to say about our sexuality and what it means that Jesus brings redemption and calls us to holy living. We know these will be emotionally laden topics for all of us in different ways, and address issues that can be divisive or sensitive to navigate. Over the next four weeks, we want to create space for God to move in our hearts as we seek to be people filled with the peace of God, in a world that is anything but peaceful.
Each week has one passage to focus on and some suggestions for how to clear space in your heart and life to be ready to hear what God has for you.
