Unleashing Hope  \\  Apr 29, 2014

Passage: 1 Kings

Special guest Chris Brown uses the Elijah story from 1st Kings as an example of how we can be so busy doing the work of God, that our spiritual and emotional batteries can drain down to unhealthy levels. When we don’t get recharged regularly, we can find ourselves alone, drained, desperate, dejected and depleted. Moral of Chris’ story- sometimes the most spiritual thing we can do is take a nap!
