Join us for God on Tap this Tuesday at 7:30 pm upstairs at Gypsy Blu in Ambler.
In recent months, I've been trying to reconnect with Jesus and reflect on what he means to me. I've been diving back into the Gospels and reading the stories—the miracles, the healing, the teaching, the way he called into question everything we thought we knew, the way he laid down his life, found hope when there was only despair, and shined light when there only seemed to be darkness.
The Jesus I'm rediscovering took no prisoners when it came to standing up for the weak, the sick, the outcast and persecuted. The Jesus I'm encountering again refused to accept the way things were and pointed people to what could be. The Jesus I see in these stories demonstrates the true power of love. And he has a singular focus: the cross.
What is it about Jesus that fascinates you or drives you crazy? What about Jesus confounds and confuses you? How do you think of Jesus: as a wise teacher, a revolutionary, a comforter, a healer, a savior, a friend, or all of the above? What is your favorite story, moment, parable, or verse about Jesus?
I hope you'll join us on Tuesday as we meet Jesus again as if for the first time. I'm interested to see where this conversation will go.
