Get a Grip
Teaching Series: April 16 – June 11, 2017
No mountain climber takes her first grip thinking to herself, “I doubt I will make it up the mountain.” No mountain climber begins with a lack of belief. The odds often seem insurmountable, yet the get their grip on the mountain and start climbing.
Humans face mountains of all shapes and sizes. Regardless of our zip codes, bank account balances, hair color, education level or any other factor, we all have mountains blocking our path. These mountains represent the impossibly difficult experiences and choices we will face.
In the Get a Grip series, we explore the faith that moves mountains. Faith supercharges our will with a belief that the impossible is possible. This series will look at ways that we can strengthen our grip as we climb the mountains in front of us, leading to lives that will inspire others.

Although it comes in all forms and at all levels, suffering is an experience common to every person. Many of us do whatever we can to expel it from our lives, while others seem almost to get their identity from it. The question is, what place and value does suffering have in our lives, if any? At times, suffering has direct causes and even meaning that can be attributed to it, and that may provide some ability to cope. But, at other times, it is difficult to find any meaning at all in the suffering. This week we look at the story of two people who were terribly and unjustly treated, how they responded, and how God intervened.

Have you ever had an experience in life when you felt small? We’ve all felt shame at some point in our lives. God does not want us to be controlled by the power of shame. This week, Ryan points to scripture to remind us that we are not defined by our weaknesses or failures!

On Memorial Day, we are reminded that evil exists and persists in our world. Memorials help us remember the human potential for both good and evil. Today, we reflect on how communion serves as a reminder of Jesus’ broken body for everyone.
