No Turning Back
February 9 - 10 • Ian Trigg
I remember a conversation from years ago where a pilot friend of mine talked about the "point of no return." Apparently, in the world of avionics, there is a point in a flight path where turning back to where you began the flight is no longer a feasible or viable option.
The early followers of Jesus were not versed in this train of thought! At a critical juncture, many of them felt very comfortable turning back, away from Jesus. Jesus' question to the remaining disciples ("Do you want to leave too?") is very "to the point" and their response is so insightful and authentic. We'll visit that question and response and evaluate the depth of our commitment to Jesus and His Kingdom this weekend. We'll end with a reminder of what our commitment to Jesus ought to look like and how we express such a commitment in many ways, including water baptism.
Who knows? Something remarkably "spontaneous" might just happen! This might be my favorite weekend of the year after Easter! I so hope you'll be able to join us!!
