“It is surely a fact of inexhaustible significance that what our Lord left behind Him was not a book, nor a creed, nor a system of thought, nor a rule of life, but a visible community.”
This is a blog about hope, and about being the visible community.
Part of being visible means joining ongoing conversations. Some see this as pursuing controversy. I hope not.
I hope for this to be a space for reflection, dialogue, and love.
I hope to think critically and compassionately about who we are and what we do, while running from a critical spirit.
I hope to encourage those who are in agreement, and become better friends with those who disagree.
I hope to never become an echo chamber, but always contribute at least a tiny measure of value.
I hope to be full of grace and truth.
Of somewhat less importance, my name is Tim Owens, and I’m a Christ-follower, husband, father, and pastor in Albany, NY.
