Transforming our Community
We’re beginning a new, month-long worship series we’re calling MARGIN.  Our culture, as well as human nature itself, encourages us to live as close to the edge as possible. So we fill up our schedules and empty our bank accounts. We do as much as we can, spend as much as we can, and acquire as much as we can—all in an effort to get as much as we can out of life. But it is not without consequences. Behind our insatiable desire for more is the simple fear of missing out. But God has designed each of us with limits. His Word says in Job 14:5 “Man’s days are determined; you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed.” What are those limits? How can we not only keep from exceeding them, but actually create space or margin between us and them so that life’s journey can be a joy and not a trial?
