These are stories about God’s love for you. The Christian journey begins with the recognition that you are unconditionally, irrevocably, ridiculously loved by God just as you are. Whoever you are, wherever you’ve been, whatever you’ve done in the course of your life, you are already loved and accepted.

He went out and fed people who were hungry, healed people who were sick, and welcomed people who had been rejected. It might not seem revolutionary, but it’s active love like this changes the world for the better.

Back to Basics

The Christian faith isn’t supposed to be complicated. It’s supposed to be about LOVE!

Jesus taught that love is center of everything. It’s that to which the whole of scripture points. It’s the only worthwhile measure of our lives. It’s the only thing that can change us and our world for the better.

In his ministry, Jesus conveyed this love to his followers through sermons, stories, and parables. He had a gift for using the things of everyday life to illustrate profound spiritual truths.

Continuing in this legacy of teaching and storytelling, Transforming Love is a curated collection of stories, articles, and sermons to help you better understand and better ground your life God’s love.
