We bring ourselves and our stories together not to impress each other, but to express God’s image - His character, His grace and His love. Change happens when we connect authentically in relationships that are based on our dependence upon God and each other. Authentic encounters require authentic people, effort and trust. We need to avail ourselves and show up in our relationships. We enter into a generous common life be serving as an expression of His character and extension of His heart. The best way to express God’s work is to share God’s work.
