This week Pastor Bryan preached on the importance of moving forward. His sermon was titled “Staying on Mission.” Because we cannot stay stagnant where we are. We have to realize that we haven’t arrived to our final destination and this isn’t over.

His sermon was super practical and a good reminder for Northplace, my home church, that our 90+ history is not over. It’s easy to slip into the mindset of reminiscing and reliving in the good old times. There’s nothing wrong with remembering your past. What we can’t do is stay in the past.
We just gotta understand that we have to keep on going. Pastor Bryan mentioned that rear mirrors are usually smaller than windshield mirrors. Why? Because you have to focus on the road ahead to keep moving, more than on what you’re leaving behind.
