Community Reads led by Rev. Dorothy White, Begins in September - Fall 2021 via Zoom
Community, that which unites us, our common union one with another. Fellowship has been defined as fellows in the same ship. One thing that we lack in our understanding of ourselves and our churches is the ability to see our common union. Our understanding of church has been impacted due to our need to stay socially distanced. Perhaps the walls that separate us have been exposed for the farce that they are since we can now log on and be church -- or can we?
As a result of prayer and in consideration of our social realities, we will begin a series of book studies with other churches in the Richmond area. The intent of these gatherings, whether in person or online, will be to examine where we as church have been, where we are, and where we hope to go into the future.
