Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: Advent Lutheran Church (Morgan Hill, CA).
Their welcome statement reads:
“Jesus said, “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.” (John 13:34 (NRSV))
This is a safe place to be who you are. No matter where we are from or how we got here, God’s love accepts us and invites each of us to bring all of ourselves: our thoughts, beliefs, questions, age, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, abilities and disabilities, sexual orientation, cultures, relationships, and life experiences.
We find joy and purpose when multiple generations and cultures together are:
Experiencing the living presence of Christ as preaching, Bible study, music, and other creative arts bring the scriptures to life when we gather and worship;
Exploring the spiritual journey, rooted in the Lutheran perspective;
Engaging with our neighbors to support God’s mission of grace, healing and abundant life for all.
As followers of Christ, compelled by the gospel and Jesus’ new commandment, we seek reconciliation and wholeness through God’s love. We invite and welcome you to be a part of this community of faith.”
