Crossing Over
Graduating from high school is a milestone that most people remember forever, not because of the ceremony itself but because it marks a change in life. Things are different after graduation and the decisions made following graduation determine where we end up ten or twenty years later. The Israelites experienced a major milestone in their nation's life when they crossed the Jordan River into the Promised Land. But it required faith and obedience. In this message from Baccalaureate Sunday, Pastor Chip discusses the opportunities each of us has for faith and obedience every day.
