Parkerville Baptist Church
Living In The Shadows
This Sunday, Pastor Craig Lydon will be bringing us the final instalment in our Haggai sermon series, from Haggai 2:20-23. Craig says “So much of who we are in our present has been defined by our journey in the past - our parents, our family, our school experience, our sense of place in the world. Obviously this can be both good and bad. What about if we did grow up on the wrong side of town? Or if some of the choices that we made in life sit at our doorstep like an unwelcome guest - things that we wish were different, but continue to define our view of self, moving forward? The good part about our relationship with Jesus is that he gives us a new beginning, a new hope, and a new purpose. We're not left in the penalty box living with regret, disappointment and overwhelmed by our failure, but are told that we're loved, forgiven and given a new start.”
