Community is the key to the cage when it comes to freedom. This last Sunday, we explored the appearances of the resurrected Jesus in John 20 and understood a lot of cool, life-altering stuff--
* Freedom is often released through someone who has experienced it in a fresh, new way.
* Jesus shared his scars to inspire hope and faith
* Jesus' openness with his scars ought to make the church a more open and honest place.

This next week, we'll be moving on from this series to a new called "Heart Matters" about the heart of the person who follows Christ. I'm going to miss this Free* series! It's been a ton of fun.
