We donʼt expect people to know much about Church. We expect to start from the ground up, and show graciously and tell clearly why itʼs still worth trusting and following Jesus – without assuming that everyone else will think weʼre right.
Jesus gave us a glimpse of what heaven is going to look like when he healed the sick, raised the dead and wiped away tears. And it looks great. But we know we’re not there yet, so we don’t always expect things to go well here.
