Walking With Lions

Teaching Series: Autumn 2015

Walking With LionsThere's a reason lions are called  ‘King of the Beasts’:  they rule by their great power and strength. 

Daniel lived at a time when great powers ruled the earth. They were fierce and domineering and dealt severely with anything in their way.  Yet Daniel not only survived, he thrived!  He knew the secret of walking with lions.

Today's powers are different, but no less fierce. They deal ruthlessly with all who dare to defy them, stand against them or get in their way. Can we walk with lions too? 

Please take a look at the Daniel Fast pages which Burlington will be committing to in October 2015 and January 2016.
