Introduction

Today, we're going to continue with our series called "Forever Luke." I know that for some of you, it feels like we've been in Luke forever, and we have—but I want to tell you how amazing that is.

Before we open our Bibles today, I want to ask you to open your hearts first, so that we can allow God to go deep into our hearts and teach us something new, something fresh about what it means to grow in community.
