Community Without Condition

God loves unity. There’s no doubt about it. But it can be so hard to get along, especially when working with others with whom you share nothing in common outside of your office space. Even if you work with others who love Jesus, the way they approach Him might look a little different, even weird…

When You Can’t, Lean In

Prayer in community is one of the most powerful tools Jesus left us with. It allows us to hold one another up in the good times and the bad. You don’t have to have it all together – and neither does everybody else! Sharing our needs, requests, and even our shortcomings, creates space for others…
