Andrew: One of my favourite Jesus-stories is in Mark 2 when Jesus goes and parties with Levi the tax collector and other ‘sinners’ – like alcoholics and stoners and prostitutes. The religious leaders are furious and can’t understand why Jesus would do that. Then there are the stories about Jesus spending hours alone with his Father, studying the Scriptures and hanging out with believing friends. I think that’s the key to obeying God and to staying holy in unholy places: DON’T withdraw into a safe Christian bubble BUT also don’t withdraw from God. Hang out with non-believing friends and hang out with God and other believers. You cool with that?
