Two distinct stories…One good news

The Gospel is lived

…it is not a series of intellectually subscribed to propositional statements…it is a way of life discovered and affirmed

The Gospel is resilient

…it can withstand trauma, insecurity, wrongheaded zeal, and silence

The Gospel is knowable

…in the course of time, the Gospel points us in a direction…toward Jesus


For Further Reflection…

How are you discovering the Gospel in your life?How resilient is the Gospel in your life?How does your discovery of the Gospel point you toward Jesus?
