Many are facing huge challenges: long-term health issues both physical and emotional, grief and sorrow, a history of abusive relationships, dreams thwarted, busy daily lives or the just the challenge of holding onto and proclaiming the Christian faith to an increasingly hostile and indifferent society.
The main aim of this teaching series is to introduce key figures from the Old Testament, to bring their stories alive and to re-ignite a desire to read these valuable scriptures. Within these key stories of faith there are many struggles that are relevant to our lives today, and there is much to learn from, and be encouraged by, as the story of a loving Father’s response and faithfulness is revealed in their stories.
Each character displays a – sometimes reluctant – willingness, to serve and follow their God, discern His call on their lives, and overcome their own personal struggles of self-doubt, sin, fear and seemingly insurmountable barriers.
Martin Luther King, Jr. “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
