indoubt Podcast Episode 152: Life, In Community with Jon Hawes Download Episode

In this week’s episode, Ryan welcomes special guest Jon Hawes. Jon is the Pastor for the young adults ministry, Ethos, at CA Church. Ryan and Jon take the time to discuss the importance of community in today’s culture. It’s far too easy to become independent of community and instead view the church as a place where you receive something and choose whether you like it or not. Rather than seeing church, or community in general, as something that we can consume, it should be seen as an opportunity to grow as God has placed, in each of our hearts, an eternal longing for community. Yes, there can be hurt and brokenness in community, but that’s because we’re all humans who still make mistakes. Even then, there is room for us to grow and to forgive, and God is sanctifying us through it. So, take a step back and evaluate where you’re at: Are you fully opening yourself up to the depth and growth that community provides? Or, are you trying to do life on your own?
