Exodus teaches us a new way of seeing. Walking with God and some very stubborn and wounded people as they seek both new life and new relationships with God and with each other should invite us to seek the same things. We are invited into a unique relationship with God to be a unique people in this world.
What does that look like in the time and place where we live? How should our congregation see the community around us, and how might our lives and the ministry of our congregation be changed by what we see?
Our Christian Life Seminar will focus on these questions. The first and last sessions will look at the strengths and weaknesses of various models for witness and mission, as well as spiritual disciplines to prepare us for that journey. The middle three sessions will be led by some Roanoke Valley leaders who will help us understand what they see when they look at this beautiful valley and the people who call it home.
