It's amazing. So many of the things we think we know about living the Christian life are actually misunderstandings of God's intentions for our lives and His church. Losing Your Luggage takes a contemplative, conversational, and often very personal journey through ten major areas of our lives, exposing harmful beliefs that stand in the way of our fuller love for-and surrender to-God and each other.
Is wealth a guaranteed hindrance to spiritual growth? Does giving one's life to God mean we'll have to do things we dislike? What does it mean to feel righteous anger, and how is that different from just being angry? To what extent is it our responsibility to keep each other accountable? These topics and more get a fresh and sometimes humorous, experience informed discussion that focuses less on us trying harder to be better Christians and instead being more willing to surrender our hearts to the permanent transformation only God can bring.
