True, beloved, sustainable community requires both commitment and work on the part of everyone. There’s also years of both academic study and direct experience around how family and community systems develop and evolve, and how people can make choices that lead to either health or dysfunction. Revs. Jessica and Meghann will offer what they’ve learned both from experts and their own direct experience.
Coordinator: Pamela Hardman

The Work of Community
May 23, 2021
“I went to church thinking it would be like an epidural, that it would take the pain away… but church isn’t like an epidural; it’s like a midwife… I thought faith would say, ‘I’ll take away the pain and discomfort.’ But what it ended up saying was, ‘I’ll sit with you in it.’” ~ Brené Brown
