January 12, 2023. You’re Welcome?

Journey welcomed 2023 with a unique gathering last Sunday. Instead of the typical rows of seats arranged to listen to a pastor’s message, we welcomed people to tables set for breakfast and conversation. If you want to know the vision of Journey, that’s it: We seek to be a community where all are welcome, hospitality is extended and we know each other deeply as we seek to know Jesus together.

On this special episode JourneyNOW host Kevin Dixon welcomes Mike Erre and Suzie Lind to talk more about Journey’s vision. A listener asks how our belief that “all are welcome at the table” squares with 1 Corintians 5:11, in which Paul warns a church not to “associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister[fn] but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.”

So, which is it? Are we all welcome or not?
