In a broken and lamenting world, God is love. God has heard our heartcry and shown us his love perfectly in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is what God says about himself, because God is like Jesus–exactly like Jesus–and always has been. And the clearest image of this Beautiful Gospel is the Cross, where God’s self-giving, radically forgiving, co-suffering Love is revealed in Christ!
This leaders day will have input from both Brian and Brad as well as opportunity for Q&A as we explore the implications of the Gospel message in our churches, outreach and preaching.
