What do you think of when you hear the word “tough?”  Perhaps something hard, solid, firm, resilient, unbreakable, rigid, tenacious, rugged, or unyielding comes to mind. Tough can describe something in a positive or negative light. A tough person might be seen as one who’s very dependable or very challenging.

Have you ever thought of God’s love as tough? 

Yes, God’s love for the world and us is tough; it’s solid, resilient, and unbreakable. Thank goodness! But how hard, rugged, and unyielding are the things God has had to do and be to love a world that is sinful and broken? How tough is it for God to love us?

You’re invited to join the Clinton United Methodist Church January 10 – February 14 for Sunday worship and a sermon series called “Tough Love.”  Looking at Scripture, we’ll seek to better understand, receive, and live out the tough love of God found in Jesus Christ. 

You can gather with us in-person or virtually for Sunday worship at 8:15 a.m. on KDKD or on our Facebook page (or view later).  Please click here for more about Sunday worship with Clinton UMC or call the church office at 660-885-5597.
