The message is about the two primary emotions we experience in life: Fear and Love and the implications for what would have happened on the cross of his own death if Jesus would have chosen fear. And then we will look at the implications of what happens when we choose the way of love vs the way of fear. - Vincent Rife
The message will be about how we respond to people and situations when we are tired, angry and afraid. Are we reactive and violent? Do we seek to use brute force to get our way? Or are we thoughtful and are we peaceful in our responses when our situations are less than ideal and our dreams are slipping away?
The passage of scripture comes from all 4 gospel accounts of Jesus being arrested and taken into custody in the Garden of Gethsemane - Matthew 26; Mark 14; Luke 22; John 18.

The passage of scripture Vincent uses comes from Mark 12:32-36. The message is about how surrender is a central component in the life of faith, but how we all struggle with the need to control and micromanage and hold onto things that are not ours to possess.
The passage of scripture Vincent uses comes from Mark 14:1-11. The message is about perspective. Two people see the same thing: one through the lens of complaint, which gives birth to the fruit of treachery and the other through the lens of gratitude, which gives birth to the fruit of generosity/extravagance.
This week we finish our series called Oh the Places You'll Go. I will be speaking and the title of the message is: Road Closed. I will be using several different passages. Our focus will be on what you do when your dreams don't come true. How do you respond when your destination is out of reach? - Vincent Rife
I will be speaking and the scripture passage will come from Matthew 6:22-23. If direction determines destination then what determines direction? Attention does. The things we pay attention to determines the direction we go in life that is why it so important what we focus on. - Vincent Rife
