We love to gather at certain places, football games, our favorite restaurant, an incredible theme park, but when it comes to gathering at the most fulfilling place on earth, the church, we tend to struggle. We often don’t see the value or feel like we have to out of obligation. But what if we approached our fellowship on Sunday’s with the same motivation that the first Christians in the early church did? How might that change our heart, lives, faith, and world?

In my mission to follow Christ, I will be asked by God to deny myself through both temporary inconveniences that help me draw close to Him, and through permanent practices that help move me towards service to others. Letting these rhythms of self-denial challenge my own sense of entitlement and preferences is a fight worth fighting for; because it is through these challenges, that I can find joy and freedom in following Christ.
 
Scriptures: Mark 8:34-38

One of the rhythms of grace God offers us is really difficult, Community. Community doesn’t sound too difficult, but those of us who have lived long enough know that community is hard to be a part of. Many of us would rather exclude ourselves from community instead of embrace it, but believe it or not we were made for community. But why? And how do we embrace it?
