The Gospel Reimagined...

Sometime you have to reimagine something you were taught in order to learn what it actually means...For those with ears to hear 

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever would believe in him shall not perish but have eternal life... (John 3:16 NIV)

For God so loved the world that they sacrificed themselves to make it possible for any person who chose to trust them... to be liberated from isolation, fear and death... to community, love and life (The Gospel Reimagined) 

Because God loves, an expression of the Gospel can be shared in ways that reach any person on the planet regardless of who they are and circumstances that shape their lives. 



Meditating on this reimagined Gospel can help confront our beliefs about who we think we are and infiltrate our deepest biases & assumptions until we see that we are somehow intimately connected to every other person on the planet regardless who we think they are.    

Once we understand this connection and learn from a reimagined Gospel we can join those who throughout history sacrificed their lives to the work of sharing God's love...
