They are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. We've all heard these words. Maybe we've said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways.
Join us after Easter for a sermon series that tackles some common Christian clichés that don't get it all right:
-Everything happens for a reason.
-Love the sinner, hate the sin.
-God helps those who help themselves.
-God won't give you more than you can handle.
-God said it, I believe it, that settles it.
Join us for worship on Sundays at 8:30am in Epworth Lounge, or at 10:30am in our sanctuary. Childcare available for children under 5; Sunday School for ages 3-8th grade at 10:30am.
This series is based on Adam Hamilton's book, "Half Truths: God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn't Say."
You are invited to join a small-group class during the series, too. Liz Gyori will lead this five-week group on Thursday evenings, from 7-8pm in May Day Parlor, starting April 12. Sign up online! Childcare is available by advance reservation: www.beachfaith.com/half
