Letting Go of Stuff
Sunday November 29th, 2020
First Sunday in Advent & UM Student Day
Pastor Jack Mannschreck
- Travel Light – Letting go of Stuff – Pastor Jack. This is the first Sunday in Advent when we will launch a five-message series on what it means to Travel Light. How do we get rid of that which burdens our lives? We’ll focus during this Season of Advent on letting go of distractions, bitterness, control, failure, and stuff. Today we begin with what it means to let go of stuff. While Jesus was teaching, a man in the crowd cries out, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide our inheritance with me.” Jesus wants, “Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions” As we move into what is usually a buying frenzy time of year, we will explore what it means to let go of stuff. To be a follower of Jesus, we need to know it’s better to have less of what doesn’t matter and more of what does.
