December 27 – Same Challenges: Different Year,  by Roddy Biggs

With the New Year right around the corner, we all are faced many challenges, some old and some new, or a mix of both. Challenges from addictions, violence, corruption, envy, strife, brokenness, COVID, and the list goes on. Join us as we consider and explore ways to work to address our time’s challenges and look towards the new year with hope. What does this year call us to do moving forward? What are you leaving behind in the old year, and what are you bringing with you to the new year. Roddy Biggs is a Middle Tennessee State University student finishing their bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies before pursuing seminary in the Fall of 2021.
