From Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California.
It seems like our culture is in a downward spiral. Our communities feel more fractured, polarized, and divided than ever before. You turn on the TV and find pundits yelling at each other; on the internet, people demonize one another; individuals that have been harassed or abused have been forced into silence and shame. How are we supposed to react? How can we be agents of love in the face of so much pain and hate? Throughout the series, Loving Like Jesus in a Fractured World, you’ll learn how to love like Jesus to bring hope and healing to wounded people, fractured relationships, and divided communities.
This series is particularly valuable in our day and time. Everyone feels the fracture and we, as the church, need to discuss how we can constantly keep our eyes on Jesus and loving people like He did even in the world we live in. When Jesus walked the earth, his culture and community were very fractured. So there are plenty of connecting points from the Scriptures to today.
