Shalom is what God declared. Shalom is what the Kingdom of God looks like. Shalom is when all people have enough. It’s when families are healed. It’s when churches, schools, and public policies protect human dignity. Shalom is when the image of God is recognized in every single human. Shalom is our calling as followers of Jesus’s gospel. It is the vision God set forth in the Garden and the restoration God desires for every relationship. So what can we do to bring shalom to our nations, our communities, and our souls?

Join us on Wednesday evenings (7-8 pm in the sanctuary) for a 12-week class which provides a careful exploration of the first three chapters of Genesis. Lisa Sharon Harper shows us what “very good” can look like today, even after the Fall. Because despite our anxious minds, despite division and threats of violence, God’s vision remains: Wholeness for a hurting world. Peace for a fearful soul. Shalom. Copies of Lisa Sharon Harper’s book, The Very Good Gospel, will be available for loan or purchase.
