This Sunday we’re launching an edgy new series at DCC called “How to Survive a Coming Personal Apocalypse.”

Why?

It’s all over the news, saturating the web, sprinkled throughout coffee shops across the nation: apparently the end of the world is looming. Some say the Mayans predicted it. Others say God has ordained it. What do you think?

Regardless of your particular bent, our pop culture is inundated with apocalyptic themes: fear-mongering, zombie infestations, killer plagues, global disasters, shadow conspiracies, and more.

If you’re a Calgarian, come join us for an edgy Sunday series designed to prepare you to survive a personal apocalypse… whether the world ends in December or not. Your personal apocalypse begins October 28th, 10:30am, at Dalhousie Community Church (5511 Baroc Rd. NW).

In case you’re wondering, yes.

I’ll be preaching on fear.

Zombies.

Killer viruses.

And the end of of the world as we know it.

Not because I believe THE world will end in December. But because YOUR world might end before you’re ready, so I want to prepare you for it. So I’ll probably do some blogging here too, unpacking stuff, posting the sermons. Stay tuned!

What about you? Why do you think pop culture is obsessed with post-apocalyptic themes?
