It’s an election year. Our country is struggling; it’s overwhelming to think about everything broken and going wrong. As we approach November, I get a lot of pressure to endorse candidates, make statements, etc. People on all sides get angry.

This message will be Pastor Rod's only public political statement for the year. You might be surprised to learn that God’s answer for our country is not found in any political party or candidate. Instead, it will come when God’s people follow God’s plan. As you watch, you will discover the role you play.
