Awesome comments! Thanks for sharing this link. I am given so much hope by the constant growth happening in the congregation I serve - both in depth of faith and in numbers of people coming through the door. I'm also given hope by the questions that are asked by the teenagers I work with - they are searching for connections with God and real life and they are not afraid to ask the tough questions. I'm thankful that I can serve in a place where so much excitement is happening, especially in a time when the future of the ELCA seems rocky to many..
Thank you for taking the time to be a part of "koinonia"
