About one to two years into the GC story, those of us who were around decided to identify the values that we orientated our joint lives of following Jesus around. Values, in essence, are things you are actually doing. If we weren’t doing them already, then they wouldn’t have been values…they would be goals. So we didn’t write up a list of things we wanted to value, we determined the ideals we already were living out together and wrote them down. Hope that makes sense. Since that initial time, it has been awesome to witness the church grow while still treasuring the values we identified even if we haven’t spoken them audibly for some time. As we (overseers) were thinking of different types of studies for the summer, we thought it would be appropriate to have weekly discussions about our values with anyone from the church who’d like to hear more. We especially think it would be beneficial for those who’ve been doing life with us for the last 2-4ish years.
