      April 8 and 15: PERSONAL STORIES – As a follow-on to our recent conversations about the “radical church” and the “practicing church,” we’ll provide an opportunity to talk about how the faith and our practice of the faith, personally and through our parish congregational experiences, has affected us.  
     How did our faith develop over time? What difference has it made in our daily lives? When have we sensed the presence of God’s spirit working? Have there been times when God hasn’t seemed accessible or approachable to us? Has God ever seemed just a “concept” but not “real,” or “alive” to us? Is Jesus present? How?
     These are just a few of the questions, Christians on their pilgrimage or spiritual journey ask, or may be afraid to ask – and many may be embarrassed to try to answer. A Christian community of seekers seems designed to be a safe place to explore meaning together, to challenge ourselves, individually and collectively, as we explore, listen, and tell our stories.
     Join us, as the Shrewsbury family moves on its deepening journey of faith, along what the earliest church called the story of THE WAY of Jesus, inside Shrewsbury and beyond.
