PUBLIC LECTURE - PEACE IN TROUBLED TIMES
Mass Shooting in...Nine Dead. Trade Wars with China…Stock Market Drops.
North Korea Tests Another Missile. GM Laying off. Hurricane Hits.
Registered Sex Offender attempts to Kidnap Child. Mother of Three Missing. Cancer.
Headlines such as these are becoming common place. It seems that life is increasingly violent and
dangerous. Events around the world and closer to home threaten our safety, our peace, our way of
life. Life seems quite uncertain.
In the face of these unsettled times, is peace of mind possible? No one is totally protected from these
evils. When danger and suffering surround, many feel that lasting peace or tranquility is impossible.
In contrast to that feeling, true peace of mind is really possible. Christians can and do know peace
in the face of troubles, sorrows, and the uncertainty of life. They know that there is a God in control
of all these events, and that he is a Father who loves and cares for his people. They have a sure hope
of lasting peace in their lives. They have this by faith in Jesus Christ.
You are cordially invited to hear about the God who rules all things for the good of his people, and
how God gives true and lasting peace.
You are also invited to join us for Sunday worship, each week, at 9:30 AM and 5:00 PM.
