Our friend Dr. Rev. Master. Coolio. Chris Schoon, joined us at Eucharist, and shared the hope we have in resurrection!
Kevin tells us two stories of rejection.
In Luke 4, Jesus goes to church, is rejected, and nearly murdered.
In January of 2014, Kevin and Meg went to Vancouver, were rejected, and got a nice polite letter.
Two very different endings, but a similar question can be asked about both: how should we respond in a culture of rejection?
(As an aside, this was our first week in a new gathering space, so there are some veiled, and not so subtle, allusions to that fact)
(As another aside, the church planting group Kevin talks about is in no way affiliated with the Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec/CBOQ, and do not reflect the values or blah blah blah of the CBOQ!)
