Last Sunday's sermon, in light of recent events in the nation (Aurora shooting) and our community (LCO arson fires) I departed from the scheduled sermon topic and preached from Ephesians 6:13, When the Day of Evil Comes.
The Day of Evil (trouble, adversity, injustice, sin, accusation) will come to everybody sooner or later, but it is only temporary -- and is a test. Character is not made in times of crisis. It is displayed. Who we really are comes out when the pressure is on. How can we be prepared to face this dark day when it comes?
