"Called to Community" Sundays (beginning 8/19) @ 10am, Room 10
In the midst of these radical shifts in our society and within Christianity itself, it is clearly time to revisit the question, "What is the role of the Church?" What is the Church’s role in the lives of individuals and families who no longer turn to it as the center of their social and family structure? ...in a world that increasingly sees it as irrelevant or even antithetical to human progress? ...in the lives of the people who continue to return to it as a source of strength, inspiration, solace, and connection with God? …in the lives of the people who have never walked through one of our doors an those who have sworn they never will again?"
