new sermon series starts Sunday

The Sunday morning series through Acts (The Acts of God"), along with the "summary sermons" on Acts (those "C" words), is now complete. Where to next? I'm letting Acts decide that - it ends with how Paul “proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ — with all boldness and without hindrance!” (Acts 28:31 TNIV)

Consequently, God willing, I’ll do very much the same starting next Sunday morning, Apr. 23, with a series entitled The Tough Stuff. This will be a candid look at some of the “hardest” things Jesus ever had to say. What do I mean by "hard?" Hard as in either of two ways: "hard to understand" or "easy-to-understand, but hard difficult to hear and live by." The Christ who has been "raised up" as Lord deserves to be heard, particularly on the most difficult of matters.
