Most of us, at one time or another, have felt trapped. Whether caught in a dead-end job, a destructive relationship or circumstances beyond our control, we can feel as if there is nowhere to turn and no way out.
But at the core of our faith is freedom that only God can give. Freedom from sin, greed, confusion, guilt and all the other traps of the world is the ultimate gift from God. It reaches down into our deepest selves and releases a part of us that yearns for God alone. To be rescued is to be returned to the state of grace for which we were made: freedom.
