an open and affirming community of faith

n open and affirming community where faith is questioned and formed, as relationships are made and upheld. 

Just a Little Peace (Romans 5:1-11)

When we were determined to be at war with God, when we’d set our minds on settling for the suffering, God proved God’s love for us in that while we were content to be separated from God, God made a way through Christ to be reconciled to us.

When we were yet isolated and alone, surrendering to the suffering of maintaining hostilities with God, God came to us in the person of Jesus. God has a history of showing up when the going gets roughest—not to pull us out of our suffering, but to give us the courage and strength to stand up under it—to look it straight in the eye not as a failure of our competence, but as an opportunity to see that God doesn't need our competence to change the world.
