One of the things we have experienced in our faith community is the power of the table. Conversations around a table allow more space for understanding, questions, clarifications, and even disagreements. That’s the power of the table—we talk WITH each other rather than AT each other.
So we wanted to have some conversations about topics and with people that are interesting and important. And we want to invite you to the table with us.
We hope these conversations spur conversations in your life, around your tables and these conversations would help us all live a story that is a little bit bigger.
