Dear Members and Friends of Trinity Downtown:

What keeps you from following Jesus more intentionally?

The biographers of Jesus included many examples of Jesus inviting folks to follow Him. Surprisingly, many responses to Jesus’ request were met with lack of enthusiasm, as in the example above from Luke’s biography. We shouldn’t kid ourselves, it’s not easy to follow Jesus. We are constantly distracted by important things like family obligations and career aspirations or face mental obstacles like the fear of losing control.

As we seek to follow Jesus, we need the support of our fellow travelers. Together, we can encourage each other, discern the Spirit’s whispers, and feel His love flooding our hearts. Come join together with fellow-travelers this Sunday at Trinity Downtown.

Come learn how placing your distractions, hopes, fears, uncertainties and doubts in the hands of the Lord can lessen our stress load and bring deep transformation in our hearts. Celebrate with us the depth of Jesus’ love for us and find out how you can live a life of significance, filled with meaning.  Discover how following Jesus can help you and your family navigate around the minefields of life. I promise you it will make a tremendous difference in your life.
