A Letter From Ross
I approached my faith journey trying to be right, be good enough and know more about God than others until I really wrestled with not just the words and principles of the Bible, but how Jesus lived what he taught. He didn’t demand of his disciples to be fully cleaned up and religiously educated in order to be his disciples. Jesus simply invited common working men and women to follow him and learn what it meant to be friends with faith who know God, love others and make a difference in life—and oh, how they made a difference changing the course of history!
Jesus invites us to follow in the same way today—to follow Him warts, questions, doubts, sin and all, and discover His incredible, amazing goodness and grace. So often as we pursue faith, we get into all sorts of arguments about right and wrong, good enough or shamefully not good enough. Certainly questions are important and truth must be sought after, but a God worth serving is big enough that we will always have unanswerable, even frustrating questions. Friends love each other above the differences in thinking; are compassionate toward one another in their struggles; and respect each other in their beliefs while encouraging one another to seek—to discover and live a life that is more and more filled with God’s peace, grace and goodness each day.
If you are wondering if Jesus is who he really says he is (the one true God, Creator of all, the one who sets us free and brings peace, life and goodness), we are not here to argue you into committed relationship with Jesus—he is fully capable of convincing you of who he is on his own. We are here to be a place where you can find friendship with other people at various stages of seeking God, while you work out this lifetime quest, this lifetime journey of discovering God and living out the purpose for which God made you, together with friends with faith.
