What a couple of weeks it has been! From the snow during Christmas week, to the frigid temps that followed, to the freezing rain/ice we tasted yesterday, winter is alive and well! And yet, in this first month of our New Year, much is happening and opportunities are all around for those connected to Clinton FCC.
Yesterday, we launched a new series - Radical - and looked at what our call as followers of Jesus. Late in his life, one of Jesus' closest friends and disciples - Peter - called followers of Jesus to embrace the call of Holiness. Peter challenged us to live lives that are different - to desire the "set apart" life. This month, we will look at three tangible areas of life where we can and should be different - where we can and should be "set apart." This week, we will look at the #metoo crisis and how the church and followers of Jesus can and should react and respond. On January 21, we will look at the LIFE issue and how every life matters. On January 28, Cody will be bringing a message about what it looks like when a church and community accepts the call to be the Hands and Feet of Jesus. Radical - let's do it!
Keep the following in mind:
