It is Super Bowl weekend! The pundits and the experts are telling us who is going to win. ESPN’s staff of writers, editors, analysts, columnists and pundits have made their predictions for the game. The tally: 44 picks for the Patriots and 23 for the Falcons. Whose word can you trust?
This weekend Pastor Ben is going to launch us into a new series, “What Jesus Said.” Jesus words are accurate and true. He was not speculating. He proclaimed the truth of God. You and I can always trust Jesus. And this Sunday “What Jesus Said” is “Love Your Enemies.” For the Christian, the guiding principle for any healthy conversation is Jesus’ encouragement above all to approach a person in love, that is, with their emotional and eternal well-being in mind. You may or may not be disappointed by the Super Bowl. You will not be disappointed by Pastor Ben’s message from Jesus this weekend! See you at 9:00 or 10:45 am. If you can’t make it in person, you can watch via live stream.
