Our congregation is about connection. We connect to each other in community, by showing up each week. There is science to demonstrate that being in a congregation of any type helps us to live longer by about 7 years. It is also good for our neurology and our heart muscles. I do it because I am confident that it is good for us.
We gather in worship because “worship” means to give thanks. We thank God for our lives, our world, each other, and the hope of God. The greatest gin of God’s love is the life of Jesus. He taught us to love our enemy (it’s hard, but it’s good for us). He gave us a New Commandment: “…that you love one another as I have loved you.” And the connection to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shows us that that love can be a powerful force to make the world a better place. “Love is the most powerful force in the universe. It is the only thing that can turn an enemy into a friend.”
It’s a great way to live, and a great bunch of folk to live with. No rush, come visit a couple times and see what happens.
