Jesus: The Revolutionary

  • Aerator 4839 Market Street Ventura, CA, 93003 United States (map)

Many people talk about getting closer to God. At this Aerator gathering, we will hear from someone who says that she wishes that God would leave her alone half the time. She said that if you get too close to God, you may end up loving someone that you don't like again (among other dangers). 
We will look at how Jesus asked a lot of his early followers. He did not want them to just go along for the ride, but be a part of the renewal of all things!

For our prayer station, we will look at a prayer – poem of grief for the ways in which we may fail to follow God. Much of it centers around the ways in which we spend our time and money on wasteful things when an equal amount of time and money would alleviate the real pain-and-suffering of others. We will ask these questions: how do we balance our desires to alleviate our own pain with our call to help alleviate the pain of others? What would you include in your list of griefs?

About Our Current Aerator Series - The Wild Journey of Faith in Jesus

Following Jesus means to follow a “nobody” from “nowhere.” It is a search for purpose and meaning in the events and choices of our lives. It is a costly journey with an unknown destination.
Jesus invites us to be a part of his story. It seems to require so much sacrifice on our hearts, so some might wonder, "Is it really worth it?"
We will not make light of the time questions of faith. We don't want to give you a definitive answer because you deserve to make the journey yourself.
Following Jesus is an invitation to go on a wild journey. What else could be better in life?
