Series Purpose:
We must gain a perspective on how living as a Christian may be different now that we are, for the most part, on the “other side” of the pandemic. We will grasp that there are things to “unlearn” – setting aside old ideas – and “learn” gaining new understanding for real outreach and discipleship post COVID.
In 2021, a Pew Research Study issued the results of a study of nearly 10,000 Americans, asking how their lives have been impacted in the wake of a global pandemic.
-40% of people reported a negative impact on personal relationships
-28% reported a negative impact on their physical or mental health
-23% said it negatively impacted their job
-22% said it negatively impacted their personal finances
God's Truth is unchanging no matter what happens around us.
-God cannot change because He is perfect, pure and everlasting.
-“Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8)
-“Heaven and earth will pass away but my words will never pass away” (Matthew 24:35)

At the same time, It would be irresponsible for us to 'pretend' that the world around us is returning back to “normal”.
This series was birthed out of a passion to see the church be faithful in these days.
2 important truths from Jesus' prayer:
1. We [His followers] are "not of the world"
2. We [His followers] are "sent into the world"
You are the only salt and light the world will ever have – you can be faithful in that, or not.
3 specific ways we are called to be learning & unlearning:
1. We are a powerfully compassionate people
2. We are peacemakers in a fractured world
3. We are recommitted to one another
Bottom Line:
You are alive right now for a reason. Are you ready?
