Merry Christmas!? Is it??
So, what’s merry about Christmas?
Faith And Finishing Well
You’ve heard the saying, “There are only two things that are certain: death and taxes.” I think there’s a third certainty — we don’t like to talk about the first two! Yet, April 15th rolls around every 365 days; and, one day, so will your last day on this earth. As I said in the video, the Bible says our lives here “are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.” (James 4:14) In plain English – none of us are here for very long! So, if death is coming for us all, why do we pretend it’s not? Or, and I’m not trying to be morbid here, why aren’t we willing to talk about it? Could it be that we’re afraid? My mom wasn’t, and you don’t need to be either! How is that possible?
Want to know the two things the Bible says are certain to cast out fear? The first is faith in Jesus Christ, who gave his life to save ours; and then, three days later, conquered death. The second is a “perfect love that drives out fear.” (1 John 4:18). In other words, you need a relationship with the One who loved you enough to give his life to save yours. You see, a relationship with Jesus spans eternity, and; and, seeing Jesus was what mom looked forward to the most! How about you?
Would You Introduce me to Jesus?

Got Covid fatigue? How Do We Let Go Of Stress?
During Covid, did you behave in ways that surprised you, and everyone around you? Covid created stress for all of us that many have been unable to release. Dave explores the question, “How do we move on?”
When you think about it, what are most people you know, especially teenagers, searching for? Contentment! Imagine how our lives would change if we felt really good about who we are, and the life choices we’re making. Are we searching in the right places to find contentment? Dave, from a local high school, shares about finding contentment.
