This week we will dive headfirst into our series on identity. In particular we will be looking at Jesus’ words in Mark 8:31-38 where he talks about sacrifice and giving things up; this is in stark contrast to what our culture often presents where our identity is defined by what we have, our stuff and the status that we earn. Throughout this series we will be encouraging our young people to think about finding their identity in Jesus Christ, the one who loves us unconditionally even when we fail. We hope it will be freeing for them and help relieve some of the performance pressure that inevitably comes at school and in social settings.
