What are you most afraid of? Fear is one of those emotions that we all experience and all too often it causes us to be anxious, to doubt God's goodness and power, and to trust something other than the Lord. In this week's sermon we find out how Jesus takes away our fear.
We live in a dangerous world that requires wisdom. Yet wisdom will not solve all of our problems or answer all of our questions. This is apparent when we wrestle with the problem of evil and suffering in the world. We always ask questions like, why? Why now? Why doesn't God do something? Wisdom is needed but wisdom has it's limitations. At the end of the day we are called to trust the Lord.
