Biblical Content Warning for 4/2 Service

​Hey friends (and parents especially), The passages in front of us this Sunday (Judges 19-21) contain some of the most violent and disturbing images in Scripture (rape, bodily mutilation, and genocide–just a heads up for families with little ones or those who have an experience of sexual assault).

Church Family, C.S. Lewis called the incarnation of Jesus Christ “the grand miracle.” He compares Christ’s incarnation to the climax of a great story. Can you imagine your favorite story without a climax? It just wouldn’t make sense. Some truths are so central everything else hangs on them. And there’s no greater truth than the Son’s deep […]
