    Better Than Normal

    In times of instability, it is common for humanity to strive to “get back to normal.” We’ve seen an unprecedented amount of “instability” this year with Covid-19, nation-wide racial tensions, and an election year full of name calling, finger pointing, and drama. Some things about “normal” are good. But some things about “normal” are not worth settling for.

    What areas should we strive for “better than normal?”  How can we use this time to adapt and prepare ourselves to be more firmly rooted in the Scriptures, more present in our communities, and more engaging with our culture?

    We look forward to having these conversations (even the tough ones) and to emerging on the other side as a stronger, healthier, and more vibrant congregation.
