Uncomfortable Growth

1 Peter 2:1-12
We all have a mental model of what our "dream church" should look like. The challenge comes, however, when the reality doesn't match up to our expectations. But in this installment of our #uncomfortable series, we learn that God’s goal in placing you in community is not your comfort, but your growth

Series Information

Suburban culture is a culture of comfort. It’s being sold to us everywhere we look. We’re encouraged to do what we want, when we want, with whomever we want. If something is uncomfortable, we want to avoid it at all costs. The Christian faith, though, is just the opposite: it is uncomfortable. If you want to be part of the church, you need to embrace, understand, and see the beauty and hope in the challenging realities of being part of God’s people.
