The Book of Matthew 5:15 in the Christian Bible entreats the faithful to realize, “You are the light of the world” and, just as no one would light a lamp and hide it under a basket, you should similarly “let your light shine.” The popular gospel song, “This Little Light of Mine,” urges us to heed that exhortation.

According to the Book of Matthew in the New Testament of the Christian Bible, Jesus instructed his followers, “If a man asks you to go one mile with him, go with him two (5-41). Guest worship leader Mike Holliday will explore with us the meaning of that directive and where the “extra mile” takes us. A singer/songwriter from Pottstown, PA, Mike has traveled extensively across the eastern United States sharing songs and stories from his travels.
Mike Holliday intrigued us in July of last year with his service on “The Color of Light.” A singer/songwriter from Pottstown, he has traveled extensively across the Eastern half of the United States sharing songs and stories inspired by his travels. He returns to TPUUF this year with “Take the Weight as it Comes,” a message focusing on the nature of trust.

But in addition to the physical changes in our world, we’re also confronted with challenges to our view of the world and to concepts we have relied on to make sense of it. In this service, we’ll explore how we react when concepts we have been taught all our lives are challenged.
