If we are honest with ourselves, each of us could name someone or something to which we have been or are addicted to. St. Augustine once said, "God is always trying to give good things to us, but our hands are too full to receive them.” Sunday, February 12th is Addiction Awareness Sunday at Asbury Church. Please join us as our Director of Congregational Care, Bill Arnold, explores some of the attractions and aversions that fill our hands and the stages towards freedom, hope and finding the grace to let it go.
