“Most people never become great saints,” said Thomas Merton, “for the same reason they never become great poets…they never get around to being the kind of person that is called for by the times in which they live.” That is, most of us are so busily consumed by the minutia in front of us, that we never notice what is happening around us. We are time-conscious, yet oblivious to the times. God is calling us to step back, widen our perspective, and look at the whole picture. In this new series, Pastor Michael will challenge us to pan out, listen closely, and sometimes suffer as we discover how to Thrive in a hostile culture.
