When we watch the news or scroll through social media, our contemporary culture would make us think they are getting along just fine without any faith influence. However, as we dig a little deeper, the 21st century is filled with areas that need the influence of Christ and people of faith. Together, we will study how our values can influence the world around us for the better and what we can do to have an impact in a secular society.
Without faith it is impossible to please God. We honor God when we develop a greater faith. In this series we will study the life of Abraham as a model for trusting God amidst uncertainty. When we choose to trust God in difficulty, we develop a more resilient God-honoring faith.
Everyone wants a better world but most feel powerless to improve it. We become paralyzed in the quest and choose to accept the status quo. Instead of changing the world we can focus on changing our street. When we aim small we gain more traction in making a difference. Jesus commands us to love our neighbor, to serve others with compassion and meet the tangible needs of others. When we seek to practice those actions right where we are, we begin to change the world one neighborhood at a time.
