Whatever the Hardship, Keep Rising Up! – Chapter 39 – Sunday 17th May 2015

This Sunday we have a Baptism! We will be looking at Paul’s life-changing experience on the road to Damascus, his Baptism and suffering for the gospel.

Isaiah 40:27-31;
Acts 9:1-25;
2 Cor 6:1-10;11:22-33

“Hardships make us bitter… or better. They lead us to breakdown… or to breakthrough. If we don’t give up at the at breaking point when we feel we’ve reached the end of our own resources, we find a new aliveness, the life of the risen Christ rising within us.” Brian McLaren – We Make the Road by Walking, Chapter 39

The painting is Hans Speckaert – Conversion of St Paul on the Road to Damascus from the Louvre Museum in Paris. The image is in the public domain.
