There are many bugs that start making their way around the family at this time of year, but the bug that Pastor Bill is going to talk about is one that will truly ruin any holiday. The “gripe” bug is one that is hard to get rid of and tends to be contagious, so how do we deal with that sour spirit? Pastor Brian Bill says this complaining bug can be squashed and he’ll share the antidote Tuesday morning, just in time for Thanksgiving!!
Through whose lens do you view the Christmas story? Maybe you see yourself as Elizabeth, the shepherds, kings, Zechariah or Joseph? Tuesday we will put a magnifying glass to some of the unlikely people caught up in the story of Jesus as we visit with author Daniel Darling. Daniel will share some insights from those surprising people that are part of the story and the lesson we can learn from them for our lives today.
Listen to today's encouraging devotional that reminds us that God's purpose for our lives cannot be thwarted for He is faithful to complete the good work He started in us!!
