Fear and Loneliness (Psalm 133:1-3, John 20:19-23)

Phillip HopwoodPhillip Hopwood, April 12, 2015
Part of the Easter series, preached at a Festival service

According to a recent national survey, 25% of all adults experience painful loneliness at least every few weeks. In spite of all our modern security, and health advances, fear is another all too common experience. God wants us to find peace and community among his people. We discuss Psalm 133 and Jesus resurrection appearance to his frightened disciples in John 20 in this light and see what encouragement we can find for ourselves and others.
