We had a powerful gathering last night.

Britt's talk was on the necessity of suffering as we follow Jesus. The way is narrow. Many try to widen the narrow road that Jesus spoke of. Yet, it remains narrow.

Followers are obedient to the journey that Jesus tells us to take. That road always includes suffering. Jesus suffered. Paul suffered. The disciples suffered. It's a part of the cross we bear.

Humanism uses Jesus to get a better life. Christ followers follow a man that wept in the garden, suffered for others, and gave all. That's the way forward.

Tomorrow, Aaron Stern starts a series at theMill on suffering. It's all around us right now.

May Jesus continue to speak to us.
