Starting Point: Coming to Terms
Everything has a starting point—including you. Some of you were started on purpose. Some of you were started by accident (from your parents’ perspective). Some of you were started through the magic of medicine. We all have a starting point…but can we find a common starting point that will lead us to a common good place?
During childhood, you may have been handed a faith framework through which you began to view the world. For a lot of us, that childhood framework didn’t survive the rigors of adulthood. It’s not enough to say, “The Bible says…,” in the face of real-life tragedy. Adults often need a new starting point.
But the starting point for Christian faith isn’t, “The Bible says…” It’s better than that. It’s Jesus.
