On Sunday mornings at East Petersburg Mennonite Church, we’ve been in a series called Shipwrecked.
Shipwrecked follows Paul’s seafaring journey as a sentenced prisoner in chains. I believe that Paul’s seafaring journey teaches us to faithfully depend on God and stay-the-mission, even in the moments we feel bound by our circumstances. This has been a fun series for me to teach.
In his seafaring journey, Paul depended on God and stays-the-mission despite fearful moments of persecution, imprisonment, oppression, violent stormy seas, poisonous snakes and even while facing his own death.
Through this five-week series into Acts 27-28; it was my hope that we learned to mirror Paul’s dependence on God and stay-the-course, despite what circumstances we are seemingly sentenced prisoners too.
If you want prayer or to talk about anything from this series, let’s connect.
