I want to start today with an exercise, don’t worry it’s not cardio or anything like that but I want to get you thinking before we really dive into this today.  If I asked you to tell me what the central part of your Christian faith is could you do it in a sentence?  If we took a moment and I asked you about your journey as a Christian how would you describe it?  When you think about . . .

Have you ever seen the movie ‘Groundhog Day’?  It’s an older movie where a TV weatherman name Phil wakes up every day to the exact same day, over and over and over.  He keeps looping and can’t get out of it.  It drives him a little crazy.

The Greatest Form of Discipleship

So this summer we have been having a lot of fun here at MRC.  We have been working through a series on the church.  If you think about what we have been doing with this teaching, we have been asking some pretty specific questions about the church and how you answer these questions is very, very important.  The way I see it if we take a step back and look at this series the big questions look something . . .
