Invitations come to us daily in all shapes and sizes. We’re invited to parties, weddings, sleepovers & lunch dates. We’re invited to join schools, churches, clubs, and teams. And with each invitation there comes an opportunity to experience a new adventure because by their very nature invitations shape who we know, where we go, what we do, and who we become. 

 Come join us this Sunday as we look at Jesus' 2nd invitation to us and consider what self denial is all about and why we would ever willingly choose it.
