Righteous Suffering

Exiles Series Gfx_Web Header

What does it look like to live out our faith in everyday things as exiles?

This past weekend at Eastbrook Church I continued our series, “Exiles: A Study of 1 Peter,” looking at the four characteristics of our lives with God from 1 Peter 2:11-25. At the end of the message, I added a few comments about the current refugee crisis, fears of global terrorism, and how we should respond to that.

You can watch the message here or subscribe to our audio podcast, following along with the outline below. You can also follow the entire series at our web-site.
