Many Christians in our time acknowledge that our religious movement is adrift from its core purpose and mission—the core mission of reminding everyone everywhere that in and through the unique work of Christ they are loved by God and connected to one another, and, are to love God and love one another across human difference because of the profoundly sacred deposit of God in everyone and everything.

Christianity stays healthy, and we Christians stay healthy, when we’re “having the time of our lives” – that is, when we’re staying attentive to divine time, and to our own placement in it. This is perhaps especially important during times of struggle or suffering. We need to be able to place ourselves well, so we don’t get lost in the push and pull of our fears and sorrows, our longings and graspings.

"Keep Christ as Center"

It is important to recognize the multiplicity of traditions within the large canopy of Christian religion, and find freedom in keeping Christ and Christ’ teachings as preeminent in our Protestant and Covenant affirmation of the Centrality of the Word of God.
