Sermon Clip: Don’t Be A Butthead

Sermon Clip: Don’t Be A Butthead


 

With so many people claiming to hold the truth, it can be easy to get lost in all the noise. We can be tempted to make our voice heard by shouting the loudest or we can stay quiet and turn a blind eye to those who think differently. How do we find the balance? In this series, we’ll take a look at how to handle truth as we sift through the static of competing world views, transmitting our own signal with humility and love.

We start Mixed Signals with a sermon on how to respond to questions about our faith in the midst of an increasingly pluralistic society. This sermon is focused on the way to respond to these questions as people of God and how to hold on to the most important beliefs with gentleness and respect.
