At our church we talk a lot about examining your questions, voicing your doubts and really wrestling intellectually with the Christian faith. However, while we have to engage our minds, faith is also about engaging our hearts. What does it mean to love Jesus? That’s the topic for this week as we continue in our series in Luke: Jesus Unfiltured.
See you on the best day of the week!
Call to Worship
Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation. Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who delight in them. Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever. He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and merciful. (Psa 111:1-4 ESV)
