Resilient Life

This picture is of the Survivor Tree that "died" during the Oklahoma City bombing a few years ago. But then it experienced God's renewal! It illustrates the resiliency that God puts into all living things, including us.

The Resilient Life sermon series, based on Hebrews 12.1-4, is designed to help people survive through hardship and "finish well."  Different ages will hear these 2 sermons through their own filter, and God will speak to each age at a very practical and deep level. The concepts come from my own experience,  framed by material from Gordon MacDonald's book: A Resilient Life, and to a lesser extent from his book: The Life God Blesses.

Follow these links to Google Document versions of the sermons. Within the sermons you will find a link to the Google Slides presentation file. These are the freshest versions.

Living the Resilient Life 1. Thesis: Two important building blocks of a resilient life are a commitment to finishing strong and keeping the big picture in view.

Living the Resilient Life 2. Thesis: Three more important building blocks of a resilient life are living free from the past, train to go the distance, and run in the company of a happy few.
