Most of the meaning I feel in our church comes from connecting with the other people involved in our congregation, as well as the leadership that is provided–either paid, structured leadership or other members who feed and nourish on a daily basis.
I appreciate that our Un-Church program appeals to people of a variety of socio-economic backgrounds, and that it creates a warm atmosphere of acceptance and encouragement. And there is some pretty great food.
I’m excited that we’re trying new things and finding our way. I particularly like our focus on social justice and reconciliation. I also really appreciate that we are stretching into the community, further outside the walls of the church than we did a generation ago.
