ENCOUNTER | when humanity met Jesus

Most of us have assumptions about Jesus, God, Christianity. One of the biggest obstacles for people to engage the way of Jesus is that they think they know all about it already. After all, hasn’t it been around for thousands of years? Doesn’t everybody know what Christians believe?

When we look at Jesus’ encounters with various people during his life, we find many of our assumptions challenged. These conversations were not about personal sins or specific religious views and practices, nor were they a set of talking points or a political platform. Instead, in these encounters we see him meeting people at the point of their big, unspoken questions:

Who are we, and why are we here? Why be a good person; why love instead of hate? What’s wrong with the world—And what, if anything, can make it right?

Over the next month at Sanctuary Church will explore some of these encounters in the book of John that made a profound impact on those who spoke with Jesus in this way. Join us at 9 + 11am / 15 Hayes St, Providence RI
