As for the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience.     Luke 8:15

How long should “fast food” take?  How long should it take to download a new music file from the internet?  How long is too long for the line up at the bank?

We are consumed with time in our culture.  We watch it, we save it, we bide it, and we waste it; but no matter what we do with it, one thing is certain – we are bound by it.  And for many of us, this is a problem.  We are an impatient people and we don’t like to wait, but when it comes to our Christian character, waiting is the only way to build the character that God wants us to have.  There are no short cuts!

Pastor Dan will share a message about the importance of patience in our lives, and how our willingness to be patient might mean the difference between success and failure in our Christian faith.
