Sacrifice means giving up something that is valuable or important in order to help others. In our ‘me-centric’ culture, it is a virtue that seems all but forgotten. As Christ-followers, we can never forget the ultimate sacrifice made by Jesus on our behalf.
No Small Sacrifice
Week 5 Message

In recent years, the film industry has provided an endless array of movies telling stories of our favorite comic book heroes. While our TV sets seem stuck in a cycle of dark news, these films offer us the hope of good over evil; of the ordinary becoming extraordinary. We have a source of similar stories to draw from that offer more than a fictional escape. The Bible profiles people and experiences that can give us hope, plus a model to follow that brings great purpose to our ordinary lives.
