Models to follow

The discussions are needed and great. But what impresses me most about this group of young leaders is their masterful effort at engaging the topics. They do it with the grace, love and humility one would hope to see in the people of God. It’s convicting that we have avoided these topics for so long because we have lacked this skill as a body. But, they are leading by example. I pray we follow.

Generations have voices

Great job Spacemakers. All churches need an open table to talk the issues that we are concerned with our spiritual walk. Let The Spirit of God to continue leading in true.

Very good! Excited to hear and learn from the conversation. “A voice for the voiceless” and “respectful of brothers and sisters when we disagree.” You got me at Hello.
