A Timely Challenge
Summer School 2015 | Part 5 of 5
Following Jesus into the World
Prayer, your life and love are more important than anything you ever say, though we do need the courage to speak when God gives us opportunity. Our calling is to show mercy, to see and build on what is good, beautiful and true (God’s general grace) in the lives of non-Christians. We are forbidden to judge them. This 2016 Summer School talk is for anyone who wants to live a radically gracious life, as Jesus did.
