Why just a Jesus follower?
One of the interesting things about Jesus was who he didn’t follow: religious leaders, the church, political powers, the majority, the strong, successful or wealthy.
Instead, he created his own movement where he showed the world a different way. One where the smallest voice matters, the weak are seen as strong, the outcast is included, the poor are given priority and the “sinner” is not condemned – all of this done in the name of a loving, kind, radically grace driven God.
After years of living (and working) inside mainstream Christianity, I decided to step outside the lines and just follow Jesus instead. I love people. I love the Divine. And I am passionate about bringing change to our church culture to resemble the safe, inclusive, loving, grace-filled space that Jesus embodied.
