Through the Bible (Jeremiah 17-20)
09 December 2020
We observe a sort of mixed bag of feelings and emotions from Jeremiah in Jeremiah 17-20 as he seemingly vacillates between his desire see the people repent or be hastened to their doom, and threatening to quit preaching to save his own skin or being compelled to continue no matter what the cost. As we wrestle with similar emotional fluctuations we can, like Jeremiah, trust the Lord to fulfill His purposes for us if we will stay on His path, continue following the Word steadfastly, and be bold to speak the truth even in trying times.
Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
