Do we know what it is like to love and be loved? If we do, we are well on the way to a sound theology.

Lean in toward God’s love. You will find that Love has been there all along, leaning in toward you.

As we eat and drink we are welcomed, offered hospitality and healing, and find hope in the name of Christ. As we are sent out, where will our voices and actions speak of these things for the sake of the world?

A myth of our times is that we can be independent. We reflect on a couple of stories from the bible that speaks into issues of our day, like climate change, and the problem of disconnection and fracture. We find hope in news that invites connectedness to all things.
