From Pastor Joel
On Sunday, I will continue with message 3 in our series, "Live Like Christ in an Outraged Age." We cannot reach people and hate people at the same time. When those outside of Christian faith sense our disgust at their world view and conduct, they feel unloved and unvalued. Christians’ contagious love will do more to affect culture than our disgust. Let’s zero in on Jesus meeting a “disgusting person” for some guidance in embracing those with whom we disagree.
Remember to follow me on Twitter @PastorJoelZ.
See you on Sunday,
The Leadership Team
