Eyes on the Fries

Just as potatoes bumping in a pot knock the dirt off each other, the challenges and conflicts we’ve faced as a congregation over the past year have invited us to examine parts of ourselves and our community that need transformation. While this bumping has been painful at times, it is a necessary part of our growth. We are now at a turning point where we must decide – will we commit to the hard work of peeling back our defensive layers, seasoning our interactions with grace, and appreciating the unique gifts each member brings? Or will we remain stuck in old patterns that limit our potential as a faith community? Our covenant with one another gives us roots to weather storms of change. If we stay focused on living into our highest values together, new life will emerge. With courage and compassion, we can pledge ourselves to co-creating a healthier congregation.
