A boss can dictate 40 hours of your life every week, but not when you’re on vacation! We accept these authorities (and note their limits) in our lives. What’s bizarre is when Christians call Jesus “LORD”. Not Captain or Teacher or Boss but “LORD”.

Our apologies….due to technical difficulties, the sermon for April 17th is unavailable.

- When Christians declare, “Jesus is LORD” what exactly are they agreeing to?

- When was the last time you humbled yourself?
- How does ‘selfish ambition’ rear its head in your life? How are you learning to set that aside?
