This week we start a new 3-week series called ‘Uncomfortable: The awkward and essential challenge of Christian community’.
Australian culture is a culture of comfort. It’s being sold to us everywhere we look. We’re encouraged to do what we want, when we want, with whomever we want. If something is uncomfortable, we want to avoid it at all costs.
The Christian faith, though, is just that: uncomfortable. This week we are going to see how being part of a church community is full of discomfort and awkwardness, but God uses these challenges to help us know him better.
Then, rather than attempting to find our dream church (which doesn’t exist!), we are going to see how we can embrace the uncomfortable and difficult parts of the Christian life in order to grow and experience true gospel community with one another.
Let’s be ‘uncomfortable’ together. Pastor Ben
