The Story: Unsatisfied

Jan 27, 2019 | Rev. Carrie Binnie

Hunger for Trust (9 AM)

Warning signs and labels are all around us. Sometimes they are so prominent, they become "just another sign." Perhaps that's how the Hebrew people felt about the anti-idolatry messages delivered by God's the prophets; easy to dismiss. Despite many differences between today's distractions and the idols of the Hebrew Bible, they really are quite similar. Humanity continues to struggle with idols and our collective lack of prioritizing the God of the universe. How can we recognize the idols in our lives? And once we do, will God welcome us back?

Series Information

In our journey through The Story thus far, we’ve seen how the people of God found hope in the midst of dark times and victory when they never thought it possible, but we’ve also witnessed them challenge God, forget their faith and turn to war and destruction. It may be fair to say that God’s people have always had a few things in common: pain, questions and joy—sometimes all at the same time. Another piece of the human condition that we all share is the hunger for more—more money, more power, bigger house…. At times, and after trying unsuccessfully to satiate our hungers, we may even wonder if it’s possible to be truly satisfied. Join us for our new sermon series, Unsatisfied, as we explore the truth about what really satisfies the human heart and soul.
