1. List some of the things that make you feel secure (retirement funds, government, alarm systems, etc). How secure do you feel because of these things?
2. Now list ways that seem to show the world coming apart (crime, politics, international strife, declining dollar value, etc)? How do you read the signs of the times?
3. Jesus told his disciples that in times of distress, that was precisely the time to “bear witness,” to “testify.” What kind of witness do we bear in these times?
You may have noticed our electronic sign is not working.
