In today’s Weekly One Takes, Katherine Kerr reminds us about the importance of intergenerational connectedness and the opportunities our community of faith provides to get to know, learn from, and be challenged and comforted by one another. As we begin to find ways to return to fellowship and in-person activities around campus, Katherine challenges us to find ways to connect with people who have had different experiences. “That’s the richness of the community of faith, and that’s something to really celebrate as we begin come back together after a time of distance.”
