“Outside My Own Little World”

It seems the world these days teeters between those who seek to protect “their own” and those who dare to declare that all are worthy of compassion and care.  Years ago, Matthew West wrote a song called “My Own Little World.”  It resonates perhaps even more today than when he wrote it as an anthem of encouragement to get out of ourselves and our “own little world.” 

In this series, we will remember why we are a Body together—being the hands and feet of Christ in a frightened and hurting world.  We will focus not just on maintaining “the church,” but why it is that the church exists at all.  We will reaffirm our personal purpose in the world and who we are together.
