To Be Honest:
Navigating Doubt, Regret, and Burnout
Life is hard and we all know it. South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, is pleased to announce the start of To Be Honest: Navigating Doubt, Regret, and Burnout on Sunday, September 17, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. Join us in person or online at southbaychurchli.org/livestream, Facebook Live, or YouTube.
“Many people believe the Bible is filled with superheroes, people that we all want and pretend to be,” said Matt Horne, pastor. “Surprisingly, the Bible is often more honest about the human condition than we are, which is why it can actually help us.”
Whether you consider yourself a church person or not, you’re invited to join us for this three-part series, To Be Honest, as Pastor Matt shows us how everyday people can find hope when they decide to get honest with God, others, and themselves.
1. The Benefit of the Doubt (Matthew 11:1-11) – September 17: Many people never come to faith because of their questions and fears, but God isn’t offended by your doubt. In fact, the man who was once called the G.O.A.T. also had his own questions. Through his story, we realize that God responds to our doubts with love and compassion.
2. Giving Regret a Reset (2 Samuel 11-12; Psalm 32; Psalm 51) – September 24: Have you ever done something that you regret, only to cover it up with more bad decisions? That was the situation that one of God’s servants found himself in. When you’ve found yourself in a deep hole that you dug out yourself, God is able to lift you out and give you a fresh start.
3. Fired Up or Burnt Out? (1 Kings 19:1-18; Matthew 11:28-30) – October 1: There’s too much to do and not enough time to do it. Even if you are successful in your tasks, the exhaustion can still make you vulnerable. That was certainly the case for this mighty prophet, who went from the peak of his career to the darkest, most depressing moment of his life.
