How and Why Should We Practice Enemy Love with Jon Hand

48 min

Jesus tells us to love our enemies. He doesn’t mean a hypothetical imagined enemy either. It is a love that goes beyond common sense. Jesus Collective Leadership Development Pastor Jon Hand reflects on learning to love your enemy from Matthew 5. Jon originally taught this sermon at The Meeting Place, a church in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba, and we thought our wider Jesus Collective audience would enjoy it as well.

How to Recapture a Radical Jesus with J.W. Buck

48 min

In this episode with J.W. Buck, we explore why it's important to reveal the radical Jesus: the Jesus who teaches on justice, relating to the poor, and what it means to be salt and light in the world. We'll get into Buck's book, "Everyday Activism" to answer some questions about creating social change, and dive briefly into the seven practices of justice he outlines in the book. J.W. Buck is a Christian faith leader and entrepreneur contending for a less violent world. He is the co-founder at Pax — which is an organization that desires to equip the next generation to pursue peace, justice, and wholeness in the world. And one of the ways they do that is through Jesus-centred content created by people of colour.

Markers for a Jesus-Centred Transformation | 2. Reading Scripture with Brad Jersak

1 hr 14 min

This episode is part of our series exploring Five Markers for a Jesus-Centred Transformation. We’re joined by Brad Jersak who walks us through why we need a more Christlike God, and what it means to read Scripture with Jesus at the centre. We all carry around ideas, images, and experiences of God. It's important to unearth these stories, these experiences, and pictures of God, because the God we imagine is the God we become like. So what is God like? The witness of Scripture is that God is like Jesus - Jesus is what God has to say! And this radical truth reshapes everything.
