Listen First


This is the sixth and final installment in our six-week visual series on exploring what God’s love looks like when we live it out in our world. If you’re just joining us, you can begin with the first installment here. If you’ve been moved or challenged by what we’ve explored over the past six weeks, please drop us a line!

Most of us get our news from outlets that generally confirm our way of thinking. Today, try to actively seek out sources of information beyond your “bubble.” And, as much as possible, try to withhold judgment…even if you think it to be in error. Ask God to reveal truth in surprising ways.

Jon Carlson serves as Lead Pastor of Forest Hills Mennonite Church outside of Lancaster, PA. Jon and his wife, Lyn, are raising three kids who seem to have endless supplies of energy. Follow on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram.
