This Week’s Message – “The Gift of Bearing Burdens”

by Pastor Steve Durand

Whenever there is some type of national or global tragedy, where there is shock and grief, we want to point fingers, assign blame, and offer solutions. And some of this is, of course, appropriate. However, Scripture reveals that one of our first responsibilities to each other is to carry each other’s burdens. Carrying one another’s burdens is one of the greatest privileges we have as Jesus-followers. But it’s also one of the biggest challenges as well. Find out why and what we can do about it in this week’s message.

Scripture Focus: Galatians 5:25-6:2
