Welcome to our 2021 Missions Week! I’m so excited about celebrating this week alongside you as we see what God is doing around the world. Although the world around us is filled with news of tragedy and sadness, as believers we know that we have a Victorious Foundation in Christ.
This morning I’m pleased to welcome Dr. Michael Thate, an Associate Research Scholar at Princeton University, as he returns “home” to The Moody Church! His face may be familiar to many of you as a former intern who worked with our Missions ministry. Michael is an ethical philosopher and historian of early Christianity, and has written and edited numerous articles and authored two books. His message on John 18 will remind us that Christ’s Kingdom—and therefore ours!—is not of this world.
I also hope you’ll join us this evening for a special panel discussion on “Victories in Christ.” We’ll be joined by Lindsay Anderson, Toby Eng, Moody Church missionary Ron Ingram, and Naomi’s House Executive Director Simone Halpin.
I hope you’ll join us for all the events and services this week. Let’s lean in and learn together as we celebrate the great hope and abundant joy found in building our foundation on Christ’s victory.
You are loved, more than you know!
