Tom Turpin, Ruling Elder

“One of the big surprises to me has been how powerful it is to create a safe place for a deep Christ-centered discussion of the issues that are causing pain in our society. It’s evident to me that we all see life through the tiny keyhole of our personal experience. What we believe someone else’s experience to be – whether favorable or unfavorable – is probably inaccurate.

So it’s all-important that we center ourselves in Christ and listen to one another. It’s only by understanding each other’s personal experiences that we can triangulate on the clearer truth of what’s happening and how to fix it.

And through this type of fellowship, I’ve been reminded of the beauty of our church family, and that Christ is the rock that every solution must stand upon.”
