Please come join me at Pantano Christian Church this Sunday April 30th for the second week of the “Shattered” teaching series. Service times are 9am, 11am & 1pm. You can also stream live at their website: http://pantano.church/ Part one entitled: “Getting Free From the Trap” was last week. If you missed it, you can watch it at: http://pantano.church/watch/. Not to spoil it, but Pastor Glen did an amazing job illustrating what it is like to live life after trauma, likening it to living with a Beast. He laid out five steps to overcoming the “Beast of Oppression.”
This week will focus solely on step five – “Forgiveness.” I had the privilege again of getting a sneak peek of this Sunday’s sermon – it’s amazing too! Pastor Glen’s message will challenge, inspire and encourage you! If you watched part one, don’t miss part two! Part one was hard, but part two brings hope and healing. You will get a better picture of how to ultimately be free from the trap of offense. I hope you come or watch online!
Just to give you a better concept of the series, here is the Church’s description:
Apr 23 – May 7
Things have or will go terribly wrong. We’ve been verbally, emotionally, physically, spiritually and even sexually abused. Some of us have been abandoned or betrayed by ones we loved and trusted. We’ve watched our dreams trashed by others. Our lives have been shattered by hurting people who hurt others. When hurt we are tempted to take up an offense, which the devil uses to trap us. He traps by keeping us living in the wrong done to us. The power and damage of the wrong stays alive in the offense. There is hope and freedom from the pain and trauma we’ve experienced. It is through honestly facing the offense, refuse to be offended and then reconnecting with God who helps us to offer the forgiveness which frees us.
If attending or streaming the event live aren’t an option, a video of just the teaching will be posted to Pantano Christian Church’s website: http://pantano.church/watch/
