It’s so interesting that throughout literature, there is this longing for a good and wise King. In stories like "Robin Hood", "King Arthur", and "The Lord of the Rings", there is this longing for the return of the king. Why all these legends? Why this longing for a good and wise and just King, when the actual record of human kings is nothing like that! History is littered with kings who abused their power, who were greedy, who didn’t protect the weak but used their power for their own good....

The Church isn’t a cruise ship; the church is a battleship! You see- on a battleship, everyone on that ship knows why they are there and they all have a role to play. They have a MISSION. Jesus too, gave the Church a mission: to go into hostile territory, to rescue the captives, and to push back the enemy. Pastor Erik shares why at Mosaic we want to help everyone SERVE OTHERS.
