There are some people in this world who just don't seem to fit. They lack the social skills to endear themselves to any particular group, so they just drift through life, alternately irritating and being ignored by everyone with whom they come in contact. Yet the doctrine of grace tells me that God not only has a place for these people, He actually has a favored place for them...and how we respond to them is going to be a matter for which we will someday have to answer (read Luke 14:12-14).
Sunday, January 27 in our ongoing series looking at how Jesus responded to different types of unbelievers, we'll study John 4, in which Jesus meets a woman who is very much an outcast.
Remember, it's our first Sunday out of the worship building. It should be interesting to experience worship in a different environment...and exciting to see what awaits us when this process is complete!
