LISTENING AND LEARNING

The following resources may be challenging. Some of them are from different viewpoints than many of us are familiar with, agree with, or are even comfortable with. As we’ve been discussing as a church, when the predominant narrative that has shaped our lives is challenged by a different one, we feel the tension. While the pastoral staff does not endorse all the opinions shared by these individuals in other places and on other issues, our hope is you see these resources not as an endorsement of a position or a definitive authority, but as an invitation. Our definitive authority is Jesus—the self-sacrificing Savior who came to rescue the world that condemned him to death. So, please consider these resources as a courageous invitation to listen and learn as we seek to be a Christ-centered church.

"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."
- Mother Teresa
