 The Jesus Challenge: 21 Days of Loving God and Neighbor

“Following Jesus is hard. If anyone tells you that it isn’t, then they are misinformed or just plain lying.”  In these opening lines, author Justin LaRosa sets the tone for The Jesus Challenge. Our modern culture is full of distractions – we lead busy lives and sometimes feel we have drifted away from God, from the church, and from each other.  We yearn for that connection, but sometimes wonder how to truly fulfill Jesus’ commandment to love God and love our neighbor.  In this series, we will explore practical tools and spiritual practices, share readings and devotionals that move us from forgetfulness to remembering, from distraction to intentionality, and from self-sufficiency to God-reliance.  Join us, take the Jesus challenge, and be transformed.
