Discipleship

Discipleship

Discipleship is learning to follow Jesus, learning about both him and ourselves, learning to love as God loves: all, no exceptions. Jesus commands us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves, but how can we love ourselves if we don’t know who we are? By discovering and understanding ourselves in community, we learn to empathize with those around us and manifest God’s realm on earth.
