Brief Description

Do we really know the places in which we live? Do we recognize the feel of them? Are we acquainted with their curves? Are we on familiar terms with their people? Do we see the ways God might use us to extend his right-making love in our own neighborhoods and cultures? Are we letting Christ teach us his kingdom worldview and applying it specifically in our own contexts?

Exploring where we are and why that matters to God is an incredible, ongoing process. If we are present and attentive, God creatively and continuously widens our view of the world, whether we live in the Amazon or in our own hometown.

Join Holly Sprink as she reflects on her places and explores the wider, ongoing conversation between faith and place.
