What “Community” Is & Isn’t, & Why It Is Such A Challenge At Church

This fall we have started an important conversation with you, one that I think we could describe as a journey.  It’s a journey to find answers to life’s biggest and most important questions.   Questions that we all wonder about, that can weigh on us in the deepest parts of our hearts and minds.  Questions like why am I alive?  Does my life matter?  Why is life so hard?  What is the meaning of my life or what is . . .
