Sermon: “Faces of Our Faith: Joseph of Arimathea"
This Sunday's sermon continues the "Faces of Our Faith" series with the story of Joseph of Arimathea, who took a risk to make sure that Jesus had a dignified burial. Even though he couldn't prevent Jesus' crucifixion, he took the right action that was within his power. When it comes to doing what's right, what is within our control, and what is not?
