The Hidden Kingdom

Scripture: Mark 4:26-32

Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Whitaker

God works in mysterious ways. God is often working in hidden ways to bring about what God wants. We are sometimes not even aware of what God is doing behind the obvious. The Kingdom of God can begin like a small seed but grow into an enormous plant. Growth happens beneath the surface. We should not dismiss what seems unimpressive. God has a way of bringing great results from the smallest of seeds.

When Love Meets Fear

Scripture: I John 4:18 - 5:1

Speaker: Rev. Dr. John Whitaker

Fear reduces our ability to be ourselves. When we are afraid, we feel something awful is going to happen. We fear judgment and rejection. We can even fear loving and being loved. Divine love casts out fear. We must admit our fear. Feel our fear. Declare the love of God. Risk loving in the midst of fear. Act in faith--fear is no longer in your way.
