I want to welcome everyone here to Embrace…

whether you’re joining us… at a campus…

whether you’re joining us online…

whether you’re listening on itunes…

we’re so thrilled that you’re with us today…

My name is Adam… I’m one of the pastors here…

and as always…we are just so excited… that you are here…

Especially… if this is one of your first few times…

We’re pumped that you are with us…

Last week… I was able to worship at… our Sertoma Campus…

And also… at the Tea Campus…

which was great… and it’s just so cool to see what God is doing.

But one person in Tea… told me…

They said: Adam… I just always thought…

and I just assumed... that you were taller…

ya know.

I just thought… you’d be taller…

And I just wanted to say back…

Did you think I had more hair as well?

And on that note… please pray… for the people of Tea…

and that God would soften their hearts…

No but seriously though…

Last Sunday… it was just so cool…

to see what God is up to…

in Tea… and on the west side of Sioux Falls.

It was just fun meeting people…

and hearing how God is truly…

changing people’s lives.

And I also wanna give a huge shout out to St Croix…

And say that… I’m slightly jealous that I’m not there today…

to hear Jason Roy.

And… hello Jason… I’m a big fan!

But once again…

I just wanna say that we are thrilled…

and honored that each of you… are here with us.

**Now jumping into things for today…

I just wanna start by asking…

Looking back at your life… can you ever remember a time…

that you were scared.

Again… looking back… maybe at your childhood or as a teenager…

can you ever remember a time…

that you were scared… of something.

And this week… for myself…

I actually… remembered a bunch of times…

that I was scared…

but there was one particular time…

that I was terrified.

And I think this is a safe place to share… my soul right?

And I’ll take that silence… as a yes…

but in 3rd grade…

we lived on the edge of Milbank South Dakota.

And my parents had an acreage there…

and we were just on the edge of town.

When one day…

my mom gave me permission to ride my bike…

to a store… called Deweys…

which sounds like a liquor store right… Deweys…

but it was actually… a little shop…

that had snacks and stuff…

and whatever else.

And it was just under… a mile down the road.

And so I was given permission…

And I got on my bike… and I began the long journey...

which was awesome…

but between… my house and Deweys…

there was a junk yard…

Yes, like… a big junk yard...

and what I didn’t know… until that day…
