Easter Season Sermon Series: "Unoffendable"
This sermon series is based in part on the best selling book of the same name. It’s a radical, provocative idea: We’re not entitled to get offended or stay angry. The idea of our own “righteous anger” is a myth. It is the number one problem in our societies today and, as Dallas Willard says, Christians have not been taught out of it. As it turns out, giving up our “right” to be offended can be one of the most freeing, healthy, simplifying, relaxing, refreshing, stress-relieving, encouraging things we can do. Order a copy of Unoffendable and read along with Pastor Brice to discover something of immeasurable value—a concrete, practical way to live life
Sacred Scripture: John 15:1-8
Overview: We must be connected to the power source (Christ) to both find our energy and to provide it to others who need the life we have to give.
Human Need: I’m always giving; I’ve got nothing left. Also, I feel disconnected.
Community Challenge: That people practice the presence of abiding in Christ’s love, through which they are rejuvenated and empowered.
