Join us to hear a true story that provides a vivid illustration of life in the eldercare system, as blind Miss Sadie faces many trials while being cared for in her own home, assisted living, nursing home, hospital, and rehabilitation after a massive stroke. But God’s faithfulness triumphs over her often-felt despair when her daughter, our guest, intercedes to restore her from feelings of helplessness and hopelessness to enjoying life and good conversations again. Their trying yet inspiring journey illustrates our need for God to lead the way in a world where trials are sure to come.
In a post-Christian, post-modern, post-truth society where Jesus followers aren't often well regarded, modern evangelism approaches are eroding and increasingly ineffective. Christians often talk more than we listen, confront when we should converse, and demand that people believe before they belong. We need a compelling way to share our faith that combines the timeless practices of Jesus with timely perspectives about our post-everything era. Join us to learn the often-overlooked evangelistic approaches of Jesus himself and how he demonstrated the fundamentals keys to reviving evangelism in the 21st century.
