      In this final sermon of 2014, we go to Mount Nebo. From this mountain Moses saw the Promised Land and this would be the last sight he would see. Moses died and the conquest of the land would commence. While it is beneficial to look back and remember, that cannot overshadow that God is moving us forward into new lands and new territories.
      Key Text: Deuteronomy 34

      We're not meant to be "fixers" (which is how our society works), we're meant to be in relationship. And relationship means things like empathy, validation, listening - simply being WITH people. Which is hardest when that involves pain. And it's hardest when we can't fix it.
