In these days when Lent will once again look different as we continue to deal with the realities of the pandemic, it is important that we step more deeply and intentionality into the reality that we are created for community and that it is in and through community that we experience a God who is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.  It is community that helps us to turn around, to change direction and return to the one who brings life and healing.  While our individual practices are important as we move more intentionally into the waters of our baptisms to claim our identities as children of God during the season of God, these identities are living out in community.  To put it simply, our baptisms connect us to community. 

Join us each week as ministry partners of the Central States Synod reflect on what it means to be. . .
