Maximizing FreedomFragile Identities Series
When I was 11 I ran away from home. I was convinced that my life would be immensely better without my parents’ rules. I could definitely do better on my own. I made it until dinner time and, then, had a change of heart and headed home to a warm dinner.We are a people who love freedom. And for good reason, freedom is great. But, it is also fragile and limited. The promise that we’d be happy if we could find our true selves by throwing off the restraints of social norms, parental expectations, or even God’s desires, often falls short. This Sunday, we concluded our series, Fragile Identities, by examining the false promises of personal autonomy and how we can find real freedom in a relationship with God.
