SUNDAY'S MESSAGE - "Framing Your Worldview: What's the Solution?" In the midst of a messed up world, a relationship with Jesus is the solution. Ultimately, while legislation, education, politics, economics and social sciences can help make the mess better, the only lasting solution is for people to repent of sin and turn in faith to Jesus and receive the life-transforming grace He has for them. This starts with us as we renew our faith in Jesus every moment of each day of our lives, recognizing our fragile yet thankful dependence on Him and His love.
