Kingdom Life

Luke: Kingdom Life

“New year, new you.” But more often than not, we end the year feeling pretty similar. We want to change, we want to grow, but it’s hard to break out of our old habits and patterns. So when we see how Jesus invites us to follow him in exciting, radical, fulfilling ways, we might be interested but also apprehensive. What if it doesn’t “work”? What if we fall back into those same old ways of living? This winter, we are going to start the year on a different foot. As we continue exploring the Gospel of Luke, we’ll put the teachings of Jesus into practice together, taking different steps each week so that we can replace those old habits with new ones. We hope you’ll join us, not just to learn about life in Jesus’ Kingdom, but to experience that life yourself!

Luke: Kingdom Life is the second of three series spanning from Advent to Easter.
