Brian Recker, a pastor at One Harbor Church, spoke to us from 2 Timothy 2:14-26. In this passage Paul encourages us not to put our hope in trivial things but rather to stand firm in the truth, namely the gospel of Jesus. In the wake of certain court decisions about the definition of marriage, the disintegration of a moral majority, or the stampede of secularism we should be confident that the church flourishes in times of being marginalized. Brian charged all of us as believers to do the hard work of taking our own sin seriously and living on mission for Jesus. For, the greatest threat to the church is her own hypocrisy.
