Now is the time for reconnection, for introduction, for hitting the reset button and allowing each other the grace to begin anew. So often we sit next to one another in the pews and never truly get to know one another. After a year of isolation, physical distance, and harsh political rhetoric, our society is in desperate need of authentic communication and connection. This September 11 & 12, the Salem Community started a conversation with a four-week worship series called “I’ve been meaning to ask…,” with each week highlighting a different question to encourage curiosity and connection among our members. We hope you use the study guide, weekly sermons, poetry, and art as an opportunity to start up a conversation with an old friend or get to know a new friend better. Join us as we seek deeper relationship with our neighbors!
