Recap: In the smash hit La La Land, we see the story of Sebastian and Mia two dreamers in Hollywood who are chasing their individual dreams and falling in love. The movie raises the question about what we're willing to sacrifice for our dreams and if we can have both love and our dream (and which is most important). In the message we asked the question: do you have the right dream? We need to be willing to sacifice for our dreams, but we need to make sure they are the right ones & that Jesus is at the center. Ultimately we need to be willing to sacrifice our dreams for God's dreams for us - because His dreams will always be bigger and better than our own.
