REUNION – Where The Story is Headed

God created a good and unified world that was full of purpose and promise, but when this goodness was catastrophically marred, a tragic separation took place. But the story wasn’t over. Since then, God has been calling us to cultivate this original goodness in our relationships with God, others, and creation.

Jesus is the pinnacle and fulfillment of God’s story, and his redemptive work affects everything. God’s Spirit invites and empowers people to participate in a renewed life for a renewed world. Everyone is invited to trust Jesus and follow his way, living together as a sign of what God has promised to bring about – the reunion of all things under Jesus.

This is where The Story is headed, and all of our stories - and all that was lost and broken - can be healed and redeemed if Jesus is at the center.

Ephesians 1:9-10

God’s plan is to bring unity to all things in heaven and earth under Christ.
