Strangers in a Room
John 6:1-14

We often find ourselves in rooms filled with many people who are strangers to us, but yet a shared experience is being developed. Whether this be in a hospital waiting room, a grocery store, a concert hall, or even a church building, every day we are experiencing life in a community with people we do not know. We all have different stories that led us where we are today, but now we are here together with something in common. Join us this week as we move beyond simply being strangers in the same room and build up the welcoming community that is within us all.
