One of my favorite verses to describe how I live is 2 Corinthians 5:13-14a, “If we are out of our mind as some say it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. For Christ’s love compels us.” I think this first started to resonate with me while I was doing student ministry and sort of has just stuck. Point in case would be some of the comments I’ve heard recently about myself and thebridge.

And my favorite of the week came in an e-mail from someone who is thinking about coming to thebridge, it said:
I heard from some that your worship is really good and that, and I quote, “your service is like youth group for adults.”
I love that Jesus was radical because it gives me permission to keep striving for crazy!
