BUCK’S BLOCK

 One Big Hill 

Faithbridge is beginning a new sermon series, called One Big Hill. Nowhere does Jesus talk more clearly about what it looks like to follow him than in the Sermon on the Mount. It’s a provocative and counter-intuitive announcement about what happens when God shows up: The poor, the meek, and those who mourn are called blessed. Enemies are loved, the poor are cared for, God’s will is done on earth.  

This week’s message is “Anger and Lust”. 

So many people struggle with lust, pornography, physical boundaries within relationships, etc.  Ever wonder if we spend so much of our energy attacking the symptom while never attending to the source? What causes these things to surface? Where do they come from? Why? Join Buck as he addresses the relationship between anger, control and lust in this week’s sermon. 

Buck
