This Sunday @ Locust Hill UMC: Learning to LOVE the questions!

Most people think that having questions about God and life are a BAD thing. I recently heard some one say, "I know I shouldn't ask God hard questions..." We are afraid that we will be seen as some one who lacks faith when we ask the hard questions.

This week I hope to flip this whole idea upside down. I believe that asking questions is a GOOD thing. In fact it is integral to our faith journey and even makes us stronger. My hope for this Sunday is that we will begin to ask the hard questions that we always felt we needed to keep  silent. We keep silent because we feel someone might question our faith. I hope this Sunday we will begin to own those questions and recognize that God isn't afraid of our questions. In fact he embraces them.

Looking forward to Sunday!
