On Sunday, September 30th, we begin an amazing new series called, "Awakening". Whether you realize it or not, all of us need to have an awakening with our God. Over the next 6 weeks, as we unpack the "Parable of the Prodigal Son", there are 5 awakenings that we're going to spend some time on and as we do, I believe that you’ll discover your story somewhere in one or all of them. We’ll look at the “Awakening to Longing”, the “Awakening to Regret”, the “Awakening to Need”, the “Awakening to Love”, and the “Awakening to Life”. To get the series started, this week I want to introduce all of us to this idea of an “Awakening”, to help us to see, that at times, we all need a wake-up call.
