As part of our year-long sermon series: "I Am/We Are Christian: Living the Life" we are doing a 10 part series on "Resilience". This series is based on scientific research on what are the 10 factors most found in people who showed great resiliency in the face of tragedy, crisis, trauma and extreme stress. Each week we will explore one of the factors. In addition, we will explore how these resiliency factors can become part of our lives through the resources offered to us by faith and in the life of Jesus.
