From the Sermon Archives: Stick & String

Since Greg didn’t preach this last Sunday, we thought we would feature something special from the Woodland Hills archives. God’s will for us is first and foremost about who we are and not what we do. God’s original design was to express his beauty to this world through us, but that requires us to receive who we are from him. In this sermon, Greg talks about his experiences as a little boy and how his interaction with God has shaped his understanding of who he is today. You can access the MP3 and video formats of the sermon along with other sermon resources such as study questions here.

After you’ve listened to the sermon, we invite you to share your thoughts with the rest of the ReKnew community on our Facebook page, or send us your questions here!
