As you can probably tell from the name of our church, family is a central aspect of most everything we do. Most people have a pretty good idea of what a healthy family looks like, but unfortunately there are those who do not. Many people have grown up in families that were abusive or otherwise dysfunctional, so when they think of family the thoughts are less than positive. So, when we talk about family, what do we mean?
Family is a place where everyone is loved, no matter what.
Sure, there are going to be disagreements from time to time. We may not always see eye to eye, but we are family and family means love.
In a family you can come as you are.
You don’t have to dress up, just show up!
In a family you can be yourself.
You do not have to pretend to be someone else to be accepted. You may be fairly normal, crazy, or somewhere in between and you will still be loved.
In a family everyone pitches in to help.
Everybody brings what they can and makes sure that things are taken care of.
In a family you are there for each other.
Sometimes life is tough, and family means never having to go through those tough times alone.
