Soft-Launching Downtown Faith
This weekend, Sunday @ 11am to be specific, Downtown Faith will be open to the public for discussion. We are beginning a 4-week discussion series called, The Space Between. We are very excited!
This “soft-launch” holds a two-fold purpose for our team. First, we are using it as practice. So many of the team have not necessarily led a church startup before and they are all taking on new roles. There’s a learning curve for sure. This will allow us to operate with less pressure and figure out the best ways to function together as a team for the community. Second, we will open up to the public and hopefully start a bit of a buzz. We want people to see Downtown Faith as a necessary, engaging aspect of living in downtown Las Vegas.
Walking A Wire
This discussion series will revolve around embracing tension. All too often the church and religion has embraced truth without connecting that truth to real life. That requires tension and tension is the more difficult path. We hope to set the tone for our discussions at Downtown Faith by embracing a walk on the tightrope. We want to move towards the “other” in love and show the community that we aren’t afraid of the mess that they might bring to the table. We have our own.
Walking tightropes requires practice and courage. So, here we go with a practice series. We are committing to courage. Courage is the decision that fear doesn’t get to make the decisions.
As we look at embracing tension we will look to Jesus. No one walked tightropes between truth and reality better than Jesus. We will see what he taught, stories he told, and how he treated people. Through this we will learn how to best embrace tension and connect what’s true with what’s real!
