Two artists with two separate ministries coming together for one powerful truth:
“God Can Take Your Mess and Turn It into Your Message.”
If you look around today, it doesn’t take much to see that things are changing in profound and disturbing ways. People are struggling, and they're looking for answers. They’re confused about who to trust and what to believe. They’re taking medicines to relieve the pain in their hearts, running from their past, and trying to fill up their lives with stuff that is leaving them feeling emptier than ever. They’re lost, they're broken, they're ashamed… and they're sitting right in your church!
People used to think those sentences only described those people. You know the "unchurched," people who don't know Christ. But today's Christians are struggling with some of the same issues! We’re losing the hope, joy, and freedom that Christ came to bring. We’re hanging onto the baggage and pain in our lives, trying to hide it from our church family and hoping that no one will find out what's really going on in our homes and our hearts.
Beth Champion Mason and Leah Martensen understand this all too well, and they come together to bring a message of freedom and renewal in Christ, a message that today is a Good Day to start over, to give up all those things that are standing in the way and to move forward embracing what we claim to believe: that God forgives, heals and restores! He’s waiting for us to let go so He can bring about the renewal we need.
Beth and Leah know what it's like to struggle with the scars from a past they'd like to hide, and they share their stories with honesty and sensitivity. As Leah describes what it's like to grow up in a family filled with addictions and dysfunctions, and Beth describes her own addiction battles as a young person, a common theme emerges: We all have messes in our lives, but our God is in the business of taking our mess and turning it into our message! Your congregation will be blessed and encouraged, then challenged to go out and step into their own calling of reaching others by sharing their own stories.
