SUPER ALL-THE-TIME HAPPY FANTASTIC

If you struggle to feel happy, if you worry about the joy you have in your life, or if you find yourself sabotaging your positive opportunities, this sermon series is for you. Without question, a most sinister lie of the modern era is that we should be happy all the time (or, inversely, that when we aren't happy everything is wrong.) A second lie is like it: that we cannot be happy all the time. In this series, we are going to take a deep look at happiness, rejoicing, and holiness - and how they overlap.


PERMISSION

When people hear the word "religion" or think about God, the first idea that pops into their heads isn't usually permission. God is considered controlling, religion is considered limiting, and neither of them seem to be concerned with empowering people. This false reputation of both God and Christianity is absolutely tragic. 

God loves to empower people to do things that they and they alone are uniquely capable of doing. God loves to challenge people to grow beyond what they already are and find what he has for them. God loves to give people permission to pursue a full and passionate version of life - and thankfully, because he is kind, he shows people where and how that life can be found.
