For the past five weeks at East Petersburg Mennonite Church, we have looked to unlock some untold sides of famous Biblical characters and situations, to find the compassionate heart of God that extends both grace and mercy to the broken individuals he chooses to use.
We just came to an end with this series. In all honesty, I think this was one of my favorite series to preach so far. It was a great opportunity to look at some messy sides of some biblical stories that we’ve made tame.
Below, you can find the full archive of this sermon series. It’s available in audio files, and through youtube videos. Let me know which story you most enjoyed re-reading!
