“We look at what has been given to us in our Scriptures and in Jesus and try to understand why we have a church in the first place, what the church, as it is given to us, is. We are not a utopian community. We are not God’s avenging angels. I want to look at what we have, what the church is right now, and ask, Do you think that maybe this is exactly what God intended when he created the church? Maybe the church as we have it provides the very conditions and proper company congenial for growing up in Christ, for becoming mature, for arriving at the measure of the stature of Christ. Maybe God knows what he is doing, giving us church, this church.” Practice Resurrection: a Conversation on Growing up in Christ by Eugene Peterson
As the church God invites us into the Divine work of blessing. Thankfully we are not alone as we seek to be the church, we have each other. At Cottonwood we give thanks for the gift of our life together. We are grateful for the opportunity to be an authentic group of people learning how to live well together, maturing in faith and love, while seeking to bring blessing to the world. We invite you to join us on this great adventure.
