Sacred Place Together

Each Sunday, Pastor Matthew will speak on a story from Scripture which shows an aspect of how the Christian Story reveals what Valarie speaks to in each chapter of her book, See No Stranger.

The Book Club

Each Friday, we'll discuss the chapter from Valarie Kaur's book which Pastor Matthew referenced the previous Sunday. You can join every week or simply drop in on weeks you are available.

LOVING OTHERS: SEE NO STRANGER

Watch the stream on YouTube!

Once we stop wondering about people, we begin to see them as other instead of as part of ourselves. To begin to bring all of us back together, we must look at others as one of us.

“Wonder is where love begins, but the failure to wonder is the beginning of violence. Once people stop wondering about others, once they no longer see others as part of them, they disable their instinct for empathy. And once they lose empathy, they can do anything to them, or allow anything to be done to them. Entire institutions built to preserve the interests of one group of people over another depend on this failure of imagination.”

— Valarie Kaur, See No Stranger, Chapter 1
