How will we each make it through this election? And how will the nation make it through? In a divided land, Americans are growing more and more fond of our disdain and contempt for people who disagree with us. How can we change that habit? As disciples of Jesus, how can we live into his commands to “love your neighbor” and “love your enemies?" Your church is here to help. Dr. Allen Hilton, the Founder and Executive Director of House United will join us Nov 14-15 for a virtual "Courage Weekend." He’ll offer us life hacks for staying faithful in cross-difference conversation and engagement; he’ll walk us through as we absorb the fresh election results as a community; and he’ll help equip us for life and ministry in a polarized American culture. More later! For now, save the weekend of Nov 14-15. The event is free of charge, so all you need to do is attend!
