Jesus today tells us not to worry, assuring us of God’s provision.  This is a reminder than even 2,000 years ago humans had worries!

Yet, these days, we seem to have a such a high base level of anxiety.  Why?  There are many reasons, but Pastor Rob reflects on the impact of media and social media on our lives and hearts.  The media (in all its forms), seduces us into anger, fear, jealousy, lust and gluttony, leaving us with haunting questions like: “At whom should I be angry today?”

As we seek to follow Christ and hear his word, he transforms our question into the far better one: “Who are my neighbors and how can I serve them?”  

The image (from a sewing website!) points to the story that Pastor Rob ends with, in which one Christian choses, in a chaotic world, to help their neighbor by sewing clothing.
