|The weeks leading up to Easter are traditionally a time when Christians choose something to “give up” as they remember the death and resurrection of our precious savior. This year at The Sanctuary, we are asking you to take that a step further.What would it look like to really take inventory of our lives? What would it feel like to take a hard look at some of the things that we enjoy – our hobbies, material possessions, habits, even our relationships – and ask ourselves if these things are keeping us from growing closer to God?
What if we were willing to examine our lives and get rid of those things that are holding us back from going deeper in our faith? Would we find things we need to PURGE? We will be answering those questions the next five weeks leading up to Easter as part of a powerful new sermon series, PURGE.
