Face2Face When Someone Walks Away

Scripture: Mark 10:17-22

We’re examining the ways Jesus welcomed into his life people outside the culturally acceptable and comfortable categories – what the NT referred to as the ‘stranger’ - in story after story Jesus modeled a way of life marked by compelling love and courageous hospitality for the stranger.

And as we read Jesus’ stories we’re examining our stories – does our way of life reflects Jesus’ way of life … do we welcome the stranger with compelling love and courageous hospitality?

This weeks big question: Have we welcomed people to be close enough to the presence of Christ in us that some might walk way because of what they see and hear?
