CURRENT SERIES: RUNNING LIFE’S RAPIDS
Have you ever canoed, kayaked or floated a river? Then you know how fun and sometimes scary it can be to navigate stretches of serene tranquility alternating with heart pounding adrenaline-provoking rapids. Typically, the weather is warm, and the water is cold. You can be shivering while being sunburned, and it all goes by in a rush of changing scenery and riverine conditions. If you’re not careful you can fall out of the boat or capsize your craft. It’s a great bonding experience prompting memories, stories and new insights into your fears, capacities and new-found skills. In this series through 1 Peter we will draw on the analogy of life being a river we navigate by God’s grace, love, truth and his abiding presence with us as our guide. We will apply the principles of river-running to the wisdom, skills and reflexes we need throughout life.
