I thought I'd share this video that I came across 2-3 years ago. I think I first saw it at the Covenant MidWinter Conference. I've used it in several venues and maybe you've seen it before. It's 20 minutes long, so I'd advise you don't watch it unless you have the time, but I think that it has been an extremely helpful tool for me in reflecting on what kind of community I believe God calls us to be. In it I see grace, redemption, healing, hospitality, and more. It's what I have hoped our youth groups would be and it's what I hope our church can be as well. I won't say much more and will let you interact with it for yourself and I'd LOVE to hear what your thoughts are in the comments section.
We hope we'll have many contributors from our congregation. I imagine we will have regular and occasional contributors. If you'd like to contribute a poem, a photo, a devotion or anything that you believe enhances our life together, please contact Pastor Criss to learn about posting.
