|Dear Christ Church,
Love where you live. This simple and powerful sentence is our focus for the next year. You might be thinking, “what exactly does that mean?” I’m glad you asked! It means two things. First, it means to love where you live. Be a person of the Great Commandment, demonstrating the love of Christ, in your neighborhood. It also means, however, to love where you live. Love the place itself, the flora and fauna God created, the built environment and its history, its eccentricities, gifts, and possibilities. “Love where you live” combines love of people and place.
