Current Sermon Series: Numbers

The book of Numbers records the stories and the people of Israel. Even today, we do the same thing, too. This is why we search family genealogies and have family stories we tell at family reunions. People are precious – and can, at times, be frustrating – to us. The same is true with God. How God deals with His people can help us learn how to relate to others.

The Only Thing We Have to Fear

It was Franklin Roosevelt who famously said in his first inaugural address, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Gideon was a man who was always afraid.
