Pain, Deconstruction, and Hope for the Future

September 18, 2022

A racial reckoning. Unexpected political groundswells. Hidden graves. The battle over government mandates. The #metoo movement. The #churchtoo movement. Celebrity scandals. Church and pastor scandals. The last few years have brought to the surface so many things to process, leaving more and more people asking questions and wrestling with some big issues. The church has often not been a safe place to ask or wrestle. In this message, Pastor Marc Gagnon unpacks the last few years, and how this might be the greatest gift for the church… helping us return to our roots as a safe place to wrestle, question and push back. Is it possible that there is hope in these ashes? Is there anything worth saving when it feels like everything is on fire?
