44- Different By Design

On this particular weekend, our local community was/is melting in a heatwave, but we had a really cool service all the same! Eden led us through lectio, Sarah brought us through our communion practice and Steve preached a great sermon on Reimag/in/ing Unity- it's not uniformity and independence that makes us great but rather leaning into our differences and interdependence that make our community beautiful and strong.

Suggested listening for this sermon is the song "City on the Hill" on the Come to the Well recording by Casting Crowns.
