Series: 1 Peter


The Tension in Between

February 27, 2021 | Steve Ingold

The Apostle Peter encourages us, as followers of Jesus, not to alienate our neighbors by rejecting them and the culture we live in, yet also warns us not to assimilate into popular culture. So what’s in between this alienation and assimilation? Tension.

Jesus calls us to live in the tension, the in between, and in this upside down, against the grain, almost unnatural way of living, we’ll find out more and more what the Kingdom of God, pulled down to earth, looks like.

Join us for this sermon in which Steve Ingold helps us understand HOW to give ourselves to our neighbors, our community and suffer for them; How to live in the tension of the in between.
