Loving Neighbours and Enemies

Matt Collins

Love Your Enemies: We have heard this said all of our lives – Love Your Enemies but it is easier said then done. In our time together we want to explore stories of how the impact of loving our enemies can strengthen our relationship with Christ. We want to talk about what it means to see everyone as made in the image of Christ and when we do does that impact our view our enemy. Through a combination of teaching, storytelling, and practice this session will explore how in following Jesus’ teaching to love our neighbours and even our enemies we are empowered to go deeper in our relationship with him.
