Haunted Week Three - "Haunted By Hurts"
This week we are moving forward in our sermon series for October--a series that we've entitled "Haunted." I shared earlier how I began thinking about this series some time ago when I was reflecting on the various counseling sessions I've done over the years with people in crisis. Almost all of those people had something in common: They were haunted by something in their past--regret, doubt, fear or hurts. I started thinking about how so many of us are haunted by the our past, and how much that affects the way we feel about our present situations and how it can also ruin our vision of the future. But it's difficult to let go of some of these powerful, negative emotions. They can haunt us terribly and in some cases can keep us just a step or two away from falling apart. And so we've been coming back to a very simple and profound truth throughout this series--a truth that is life-changing and transformative for those who are haunted by their past. YO
