This past weekend at Eastbrook Church we began a new series “Turning to God in Troubling Times” drawn from the book of Habakkuk. I began this week by setting up where we are going in this series and looking at Habakkuk 1:1-4.
You can view a video of the message and the accompanying outline below. You can listen to the message via our audio podcast here.
