The most powerful preachers are those who speak from a place of journey & experience. Not theory or pretending, but having walked a path that they can share the lessons learned. Penny Toogood this week talks from that place of why we believe in community in the church and despite pain & hurt that has been walked through we are a church that wants to see a community living in the grace & love of God. The power of God's grace to heal us and empower us provides something completely different to what the world knows and even what our experience of church may have been. If you want to be encouraged about grace in a community then this will bless you!
