Five days away from VOUS Conference 2017, Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. started this special week with communion – a time to reflect, observe, and worship God for all the amazing things he has done for us. Closing the collections of talks on Acts of the Apostles, Creative Director Luke Barry delivered a powerful and timely message about fear: Shipwrecked, Stranded, & Unshaken.

Fear is hard to define and describe and we’re often given vague descriptions about what it is. To some, fear is being afraid, to others, fear is an unpleasant emotion or reaction to something external. But, for many, fear is often much deeper and subtler a “what-if” kind of experience that causes us to question what if things go wrong or what if things change? Anxiety causes us to question what will happen in the future.
