The Possible World: Practical ways to join in Jesus’ mission
Get the resource >
Is another world possible? One where strangers are welcomed, creation is valued, stuff is just stuff and justice is the norm? We say yes. Like the Old Testament prophets before him, Jesus presents his followers with a radical challenge about how to live in the present, as well as a transforming hope for the future. How can we, as Jesus’ followers, live out both this challenge and this hope in our communities?
