Being present is not an option if we want to truly flourish! Present to God, the Christian community, to the people we touch, to the needs of the world around us. I bare my heart a bit in this sermon. I trust God will use it to encourage as well as challenge us on the implications of “Just showing up.”
Our tendency in today’s church is toward consumerism and expecting God to “show up” when we need God. I survey Luke’s Gospel revealing 4 challenging and practical applications relating to life with God and his church.
