Acts 19:23 About that time no little disturbance broke out concerning the Way.
When things are done in community, even the simplest questions can become hours-long debates—values clash against values, different family stories and upbringings rear their heads, and questions are left hanging in the air. What keeps us together is the knowledge that we are yoked to an ancient tradition of arguing and discerning in love—and the river running beneath it all is the beautiful life and love of Jesus.
MOVING FORWARD: How will you invite your community into healthy habits of discernment and discussion?
