This sermon was preached in 2008, before many of the resources for The Story had been developed. As you are watching this video, be aware of the following upgrades:

The Jeopardy video Randy used at the beginning of this message is available to show in your church. If you do not have a church kit for The Story, you may purchase the video from Willow Creek Association. Go to, click on "Shop all Resources", and search for "Jeopardized Faith."

If you have a church kit for The Story, use your password to access the Online Resource Library, and on the Weekend Services page click on the Sermon Video Library and enter the password. The Jeopardy video is the second video posted in this sermon library. Thank you to Willow Creek Community Church for giving us permission to share their video with Story churches! For help, contact
