SERMON TITLE: “Stressed Out by Relationships? God Can Help!”
SERMON TEXT: Ruth 1:1-22
PREACHER: Rev. Kim James
OCCASION: September 18, 2016, at First UMC
Last Sunday we began a series of sermons called, “Stressed Out? God Can Help!” In that first message, we talked about how God can help us with our activity stress. Today, we’re going to talk about how God can help us with our relationship stress.
One of the greatest sources of anxiety and stress for all of us comes in and through our relationships. If we aren’t worrying about the troubles our family members and friends are going through, we’re worrying about the character and quality of our own relationships with those persons. Does he care about me? Do I love her? How can we be closer? How can we get along? Would we be better off apart? Can my wounded heart ever trust and love again?
