Small groups will begin Wednesday, September 22. The small group book, Encounters with Jesus by Timothy Keller, is now available. See Pastor Donavon.
What is my purpose in life? What is a good life? Why is there so much wrong with our world? What can I do to help make it right?
These are some of the big questions that everyone confronts in life. For many of us, the answers, we think, are elusive, even out of reach. But we’re wrong. What we must do, Timothy Keller says in Encounters with Jesus, is understand that any lasting change in our lives will start with a change to one or more of our answers to these questions.
Keller knows that Jesus changed the life of every person he met in the Gospels, through powerful experiences and words that led them to unexpected and transforming answers to their big questions. These profound conversations can still address our questions and doubts today. Encounters with Jesus focuses on several of these meetings Jesus had with others – including with a skeptical student, a religious insider, an outcast, even his mother – and shows how the central events in Jesus’ life provide ways for us to encounter him again or for the first time.
