We need tools, courage, and compassion to be the church in this divisive time.

Listen with hospitality,

engage with integrity and prayer, 

tackle tough topics with intellectual rigor.

It's time . . .

To be courageous about the gospel,

listen to the guidance of the Spirit,

and trust in the God who empowers us to speak the truth in love.
