A Church Selfie

In our church none of us are exactly the same and different roads have brought us here. We trust that life is better shared with one another and with the God Jesus makes known. So we share our lives: the things we are good at and not so good at. We share our resources, insight, questions and reflection. We find joy in that sharing and somewhere to mend our wound and name our losses.                                                                                                                                                                         

We like to sing, pray and practice caring. We bring our lived story to the story God lives. We are really good at being imperfect- but find that’s where Jesus meets us with understanding and forgiveness, with the gift of peace and challenge of becoming whole.                                                                                                                                     

Your faith has saved you, Jesus says. We are learning how that is true for the everyday as well as eternally. We trust God is love and those who make their home in love make their home in God. That discovery is not an arrival but the beginning of a journey. if the journey has a shape it’s cruciform and leads to resurrection. We are a space in the village where everyone can be welcomed and heard.
