We can move beyond polarization and division while still holding onto our convictions. But it will require us to reimagine church with patience, trust, and courage.
The majority of Americans don’t see the point of being part of a church. A big reason is church leaders and church people have forgotten the point of the Church. It’s time to stop going to church and reimagine what the Church can be.
Unfortunately, the Church is often only known for what it’s against. But if we reimagine church we can make it a beacon of light and love it FOR our neighbors… as it was originally designed to be.
Worrying about “What If?” can suck the joy out of our life. But there is a way to have peace even in the face of the worst “What If’s.” It’s what the Christmas story is all about.
We can only experience real peace in our lives if we have peace with the people around us. But is that even possible? It is when we experience the peace of God.
