Season 2: Episode 8 | Discerning the Presence of Christ

Ever had a conversation you wish didn’t have to end? The two disciples were so stirred by their conversation that “they urged Jesus strongly to stay.” And it was in the staying that the disciples recognized Jesus’ transforming presence as they shared a meal together. The practice of stability is not a strength of western Protestantism, but are we missing something when we are so quick to walk away. What is the essence of a transforming community? Listen to episode 8 and discover the heart of spiritual community.
