2002 State of the Church Address

We live in a world where thousands of people need to admit. “God…I’ve got a problem.” It may be a drug problem, a marriage problem, or a lust problem–all normal people have problems–NUTS, too. As the church we are like the workers at NASA. It’s our job to lovingly guide these people home. If we don’t, they may burn up, or their lives may careen off into nothingness. We exist as a church to love those people with problems and to guide them safely home.
