It’s Not Over Yet

Pastor Brent Clark concludes the My Bad series by looking at the hope we have for the future when the cosmic results of sin are removed and God restores everything and makes all things new.

Tis the Season for Hope

I’m so glad to finally be here today.  And I don’t mean sitting in my office, though that’s good too.  I mean the Christmas season!  I know some of the stores have had decorations out for months and winter weather has been here for several weeks, but now that Thanksgiving is past, I can finally turn my Christmas lights on and listen to Christmas music without feeling guilty.
