As a disciple; sometimes we are called to suffer in order to grow in Christ. To be poured out of the vessel we are in, into a new vessel of use for the Lord. Mark Brookhart leads the Crossing Church through a study in Jeremiah about this very thing.
The divine appointments in our life sometimes come at unexpected times and sometimes not quite the way we thought. But God still wants to use us. And He wants to see if we will obey the call to go and share.
Is it in You to Lead? And what does that take exactly? The crossing takes a look at Leadership as part of making disciples and finds that can only be accomplished by remaining in Jesus as "The True Vine."
