Part 3 of a Six-Part Sermon Series: Making Changes That Last
(January 19, 2014) This first few weeks of the New Year is the season of making changes. Maybe you’re having success with changes you’ve wanted to make. Maybe you haven’t. If you’ve been having trouble staying with your resolutions, don’t give up. I’m going to talk about a key – the third in this series – that can help unlock the door for you.
Two weeks ago, I talked about the first key: living into the faithful hope that the world around us really is good at its core. Last week, I talked about the second key: the importance of changing our thinking. Both are essential parts of becoming different and staying that way.
And today, I’ll add a third key to your key ring: becoming a faithful and committed member of a church community. I want to talk about how joining your personal purpose with that of the church can help you make changes that you want to make – and keep them made. Joining a strong and vital faith community is the third key to lasting personal change. There are six reasons why.
