Between now and the beginning of Advent we are going to be doing a sermon series that I’m calling Lessons From the Porch. Traditionally, the front porch has been a place of gathering, a place of rest, a place of connecting, a place of learning, and a place of observing. In short, it’s been a place of authentic community. Over the next few weeks we are going to be inviting everyone to come sit on the porch with us as we share about some of the things that help us to live in authentic community with one another. Everyone is invited. Everyone is welcome.
