last evening #thecrux met for a post-thanksgiving meal, to remember the journey God has taken the group on over the last three years, and to celebrate what lies ahead. these final thoughts are (essentially) what i left with our community and its new leaders in a mini-speech last night ::
time and time again, i’ve been told by students and adults alike who have experienced what is known as #thecrux that we have something special, something sacred.
you are a relevant and safe community that understands there is a simplicity on the other side of complexity, aware of all of the various interpretations and theological perspectives and complicated systems of thinking and analyzing and yet maintains a clear, resolute sense that jesus is doing something in the world and we are invited to join his movement.
that jesus is ultimately not a proposition you intellectually assent to but a person you say ‘yes’ to.
