Note: This sermon is not the ACTUAL one preached on Sunday, as that file was not recorded. This one is a rerecording of the sermon at a later date, after the missing file was realized. So, while much of the content and structure is the same, it was not exactly the same as the one heard on Sun Jan 27. We hope you still find it helpful!
