How often are our churches places of “empty camaraderie and inward loneliness?” Places where we put on our Sunday best to cover up our Friday worst?
What happens when faith communities create space instead for deep vulnerability and authenticity? How could that be good not just for individuals, but for the community as a whole?
This week at New Wineskins we’ll continue our our summer series on Community & Connectedness with a conversation about how going deeper in the context of community helps people connect on the most relational levels and how those connections work together to transform lives.
Our video this week from The Work of the People features author & activist Glennon Doyle on how truth-telling from the deepest levels is the key that unlocks the power for both individuals and communities to become healthier, happier, and have greater influence on the world around us.
Join us this Sunday, July 17, as we discuss how going deeper makes us a stronger, more purposeful community.
