In my sermon today, I made mention of the fact that I’m not a bumper sticker guy…but I did just recently put a bumper sticker on my ’96 Chrysler for the very first time. I think it’s a very cool twist off of the “coexist” bumper stickers that you see all the time.

One of the neat things about worshiping in a movie theater is that I can use the screen to show imagery and symbolism that teaches the truths of the Bible. In case you missed it this morning (or you haven’t seen my rusty red car driving around Franklin), it looks like this:

Hello Friends,

Tomorrow at Victory of the Lamb we're starting a sermon series called Radical Faith where we’re going to be talking about faith from a radically different perspective than how a lot of people look at it. We're going to talk about faith with a firm foundation. Faith you can build your future on. We’re going to talk about a solid faith that you can sink your spiritual teeth into. This series is going to search some great stories from the Old Testament so that we can learn that self-confidence is no substitute for Christ-confidence…
