We all spend a significant portion of life running, chasing down our own plans and desires. Like the biblical character Jonah, however, we eventually discover we’ve made a mess of things. And even in the mess, we keep running away from God. In Glorious Mess, we’ll discover how God’s relentless grace extends into all the messes we make in our lives. A line from one of my favorite songs says, “If God’s grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.” This faithful, loyal, undeserved love from God through the gospel of Jesus Christ pursues us, woos us, and changes us. We’ll realize that He can transform our mess into a “glorious mess” as we not only receive forgiveness, but also as we receive His direction and encouragement to live out and share His relentless grace with the people in our world who find their own lives in a mess.
You’re invited to join us May 20 – June 17 to discover how God can reveal His love no matter how far you’ve strayed. Here’s the line up for the series:
May 20 – Listening to God
May 27 – Running from God
June 3 – Crying out to God
June 10 – Seeing God Work
June 17- Embracing God’s Relentless Grace
Throughout the series, we’ll reference Pastor Mike Howerton’s new book Glorious Mess. Mike is a personal friend, a powerful communicator, and a great pastor.
I’m looking forward to seeing you and your guests during this series. And I’m looking forward to seeing how God turns our mess into something glorious.
