"Letting Go of Control"

 

Rev. Andrew Conley-Holcom

My sermon series for September will concentrate on what Jesus asks us to surrender to God so that we can enter into flow with Spirit. While often this may seem like letting go of concrete and tangible things (resources, careers, relationships, etc.), I find that most often what I need to let go of are beliefs that demand I exert some measure of control over the outcomes of my life. What if following Jesus is actually about letting go of our desire to control how things work out, and instead be purposeful about what we put in? What if process was more important than product? I expect to return and hear testimony from all of you about just how true that has been this summer.

In Peace and with Love, Pastor Andrew
