For this week’s #TakeFive, Max Jeganathan is exploring the gospel messages that remain countercultural to this day. On day one, Max looks at the story of Zacchaeus the tax collector as a model for what is possible when we open ourselves up to the truth of Jesus. It is a lesson in what can happen when we abandon the tired modern mantras of “being our best selves” and enter into the true meaning of authenticity.
Time after time, wisdom works in the interruptions of our daily lives. Take Five is our request for five minutes to turn an interruption into illustrations. Tune in at Noon ET each weekday for these short reflections.
