Pastor Sue says that she looks forward to our time together and we aregrateful to have her be part of our community of faith again.
My roots go back 2000 years, but I am very much now and today.
I embrace modern intelligent thinking: Acceptance. Inclusiveness. Justice. I can even be light-hearted.
My open arms approach is appealing to people of all races, and lifestyles, which might explain why my congregations are diverse and unique.
Another funny thing happens when you’re less judgmental. You allow people to search, discover, and flourish. My friends come to seek their own answers, look inside themselves and explore their relationship with God. In the end, my personality is reflective of Christ’s.
Open. Embracing. Nurturing. And eternally relevant.
