[Speaker: Austin Conner] Why do I need to commit to a church? If I read my Bible and have my smaller group of Christian community, do I need to go to church? How important is the church to Jesus?
[Speaker: Kyle Richter] Faithfully following Jesus means accepting the uncomfortable truths that Jesus teaches. It means embracing a willingness to do uncomfortable things like loving others sacrificially. But it also means committing ourselves to living alongside uncomfortable people.
[Speaker: Colleen Luley] Loving others as Jesus does is far harder than it seems, but Jesus calls his followers to love others, sacrificially, not selfishly. Colleen explores what this kind of uncomfortable love looks like and why Jesus thinks it's such a big deal.
[Speaker: Austin Conner] If we're committed to following Jesus together, we're going to be faced with some uncomfortable truths and difficult situations. But what do we do when Jesus asks us to be something that seems all-together unattainable?
[Speaker: Kyle Richter] Because of the culture we live in it's tempting to think that following Jesus should be easy. Many of us make Christianity about our happiness, our convenience, our experience, and our comfort. But is comfort a normal part of the Christian life? Can it be dangerous to be comfortable?
