What makes you notorious?

Everyone wants to be known for something. There is a level of comfort in knowing what defines us, whether good or bad. In Notorious, Doug Garasic unpacks that God-given desire to be known and gives insight into God's perfect plan – a plan that will stretch us out of our comfort zones, but, if we choose to live it out, will make us notorious.

Through hilarious stories and biblical application, will take you on a journey through Luke 15 to the heart of the gospel, the good news about why Jesus came to this earth and what he expects from us – and it’s not what you might think. When Jesus was faced with an audience of both the worst sinners and the most religious people of that day, what did he choose to tell them? What is he saying to us today? It’s time to stop worrying about our reputations and focusing on our own comfort. It’s time to get back to the gospel Jesus intended.
