Dear Convergence Family,
I’m so excited as we begin a new sermon series this Sunday! For the coming weeks, we’ll be learning about “church.” I know that there are some of us who have grown up in it, some of us who are just experiencing it for the first time at Convergence, some of us who are healing from painful experiences with it, and some of us who absolutely love and adore it! Wherever you may be on the spectrum, I believe that growing in our understanding of church, the role it plays in our lives, and the role our lives play in it will be essential for us as we go through life as Christians.
The word church comes from the Greek word “Ekklesia” which means, “The Called Out Ones.” Do you hear that? Can you hear that in your soul? Even this short phrase should begin to shape (or reshape) our understanding of what church is and what it’s all about.
I want to invite you to journey with us starting this Sunday as we explore all that it means to be the “called out ones” unto God, unto one another, and unto the world!
Excited for the Journey,
