03-17-19 @North Heartland: New Series "This Is Us" Begins Sunday

Hopefully you've recovered from last Sunday's change to Daylight Savings Time. I'm all for more daylight but the older I get the more that "spring forward" deal just wears me out. I felt like a zombie for three days!

In any case, I'm excited to tell you about the new series that starts this Sunday. Of all the fascinating aspects of our amazing universe, none is as glorious, complex and frustrating as human beings. Why are we the way we are? Why are our lives so good and so bad? How can we be so good and so bad?

Those are the kinds of things we'll be talking about in the five-week series This Is Us. Here's the overall plan ...

03-17 Meant to Be
There are many ways to live, but to live fully requires embracing the glorious nature of what it means to be “human.”

03-24 Fallout
In spite of our best efforts, we don't always experience the life for which we were intended. What if there are larger forces behind the scenes working against us?

03-31 Dead Ends
All of us are driven by the desire to be free. Unfortunately, what we think will bring us freedom often has the opposite effect.

04-07 Worse Than You Thought
In our quest to improve ourselves, many times it feels like we’re stuck in quicksand. Turns out, the problem is far worse than that.

04-14 More Than You Know
We often go to great lengths to show that we’re worthy of being valued and loved. What if we could relax because someone else already has?

04-21 (Easter) The “Do Over”
In our worst and darkest moments, everyone wishes for a “do over.” Could it be that it’s possible? Could it be that it’s already happened?

This is an excellent series to invite someone who does not attend church and/or is not a believer in Jesus. We've got great music lined up for the entire series along with some outstanding video and dramatic elements. I am quite confident that God will use this series to speak to both insiders and outsiders to the faith and I hope you'll be present each week.

If you do have to miss, remember you can always watch via livestream or catch up later in the week through the media section of our app and website as well as our podcast.

Ok, that's all for now. Have a great weekend!
