Live Big 2017


    Ridge Staff Q&A

    We are all called to love one another. What does love require of you?
    (1 John 2: 7-11)

     

    Love is an action that requires putting others first. Love means to serve rather than be served, listen rather than be heard, and to find greater joy in giving rather than receiving.

    Bob Fesser, Ridge Band, Greenfield

    BOOKS

    Love Walked Among Us: Learning to Love Like Jesus
    By Paul Miller
    Who Is Jesus? His name is recognized the world over. Christians claim to follow Him. Muslims honor Him as a prophet. And many Jewish rabbis regard him as a great teacher. Everyone knows about Jesus, but how many of us fully understand what He was like as a person?

    In Love Walked Among Us, Paul Miller invites us to get to know Jesus, to observe his life and His love as they unfold in the Gospel narratives. In every way, Jesus’ life exemplifies the full potential of what we were intended to be. And the better we know Him, the more we will be drawn to follow His perfect example.
