Every day it seems more difficult to explain to friends, families, and neighbors what we believe and why. How do we find common ground and paint a vivid, robust, and compelling picture of our faith to those who either disagree with our perspective, or do not understand the "Christianese" we so often use when talking about God and Christianity? Where do we go when our ideas and arguments fail to persuade them? Join us to learn how a good story is the best way to win others to Christ.
Nestled in a few verses in Luke's Gospel is a Jesus who would not have been tolerated today: He was not politically correct and He certainly did not try to save people's feelings. Join us as we look at the unashamed honesty, passion, and urgency with which Jesus explains the life-long cost involved in choosing to follow Him. True Christianity is the biggest sacrifice any person ever makes ... but it is in pursuit of the most precious prize ever glimpsed.
