About the Event
M Y W H Y
To take offense is to stumble or to take the bate. Being offended (to have anger, resentment, wounded feelings, or to be displeasingly surprised) is not only exhausting and toxic...it ultimately leads to unforgiveness, lovelessness, contempt, and wide-spread cold heartedness. Admittedly, within the last several months I have never been so guilty of offense. I know I'm not alone. This is my rally cry to all of us Jesus-followers who want to get serious about becoming more like our humble and gentle Savior. Let's get out and stay our of offense-- let's become UNOFFENDABLE! --Julia
"for calmness will lay great offenses to rest" -- Ecc. 10:4b
