06-21-17 @North Heartland: Making the Most of It

Good day dear family and friends of North Heartland,

Just a real quick note to let you know of what's coming up this Sunday and beyond at NHCC as far as message topics ...

This Sunday my message is called Making the Most of It  in which ye olde pastor (i.e, me) shares his reflections on turning 60 in about a month or so. I've been thinking a lot about this milestone in my life and I believe that some of my pondering might be useful to others. We'll see on Sunday I suppose. 😃

After that, we'll begin an critical five-week series called Losing Our Religion. Despite the undeniable spiritual heritage of our country, more and more people are turning away from Christianity and the church. 
 
In week one we'll get an overview of the changes then, in the weeks that follow, we'll look at specific criticisms. Here's how the topics lay out ...

July 02 The De-Christianization of America
How we got here, where we're headed and what it means for our culture.
 
July 09 Because It's Harmful & Repressive
Is Christianity truly bad for society?
 
July 16 Because It's Anti-Intellectual
Do you have to reject science to be a Christian?
 
July 23 Because It's Hypocritical
Since no “believer” truly lives it, why bother?
 
July 30 Because It's Untrue
What about all the crazy stuff in the Bible?

If you've ever wondered about all the criticism being thrown in our direction as Christians, you will not want to miss any of this series. In addition, if you have family, friends or co-workers who are being influenced by the negativity, this is a great time to invite them to NHCC to hear a reasoned and logical counterpoint.

That's all for now. Have a great weekend!

Rick

P.S. Great job by Ladell on last week's message. If you missed it be sure to check it out on our podcast, app or website!
