The Message: From Isolation To Unity—We create barriers in our lives, but Jesus breaks down those walls and leads us into relationship.
The Readings: Mark 5:21-43; 2 Corinthians 8:7-15; Psalm 30
What does it look like to live rooted in reconciliation with God and with neighbor? How do we practice it in radical ways? This seven week series explores how to be a community worthy of the gospel.
In the midst of conflicts, the writer of Ephesians reminds the church that they are “now in Christ Jesus,” no longer strangers to God and no longer alienated from each other. Because of this new life in Christ, we experience a radical transformation of identity—both as individuals and as a community.
