It’s September! The children are back to school and we’re still not sure if we’re hoping for an “Indian Summer” or desperate for Autumn so we can pull on our wooly jumpers and fluffy socks!
In the West we've lost sight of the fact that the way of Jesus is just that, a way of life. Jesus' call to us wasn't to convert to Christianity, it was to become an apprentice to him in all of life. But what exactly does this mean? How is it that we actually change to become more like our rabbi, Jesus? Is that level of change even possible, or just a spiritual pipe dream? Church leader, John Mark Comer takes us through an in-depth series on what it means to be an apprentice of Jesus and how it is we are transformed into his image.
John Mark Comer shares a similar message in his new book: God Has a Name.
