Among other things, this sermon focuses on the ways in which "stumbling blocks" can be turned into "stepping stones", as Jesus sets us free from the fear of failure and offers the freedom to embrace life in its fullness. With Luke 13:34 as the central preaching text, this message recognizes that all fall short of perfection, and we can even be thankful for such shortcomings.
