Lent week 4: we are free to change the world

Around where I live, you can’t drive a mile without seeing a church or two. Depending on what you are looking for, you will find it. Whether it is liberal or conservative, seeker-friendly or liturgical – you can find it around here.

With so many churches, I sometimes wonder what would be different if they weren’t around. What would our community look like? Would anything change?

The reason I ask these questions comes back to the idea of freedom and redemption. Is the church about living

as a free people who can change and truly redeem the world?

Because, we are a free people. We are not bound by anything but the love of Jesus Christ. It is finished.

If we lived like free people, who in our midst would find redemption? Who would have their burdens lifted and their shackles broken?

The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus brings all of these things not only for us, but the communities our churches serve.

Join us this week as we explore freedom and how we use it to change and liberate our communities and the world at large.
