Last Sunday in worship, Pastor Lillie helped us explore what it might be like to live out a "We Culture" instead of an "I Culture." Many of you asked for the principles she shared for living in a "We Culture" so here they are:
It is more important to get right than to be right
When you are part of a "we" group, it is not about you
Be loving and kind, it is not that hard (and if it is hard, it’s on you, not on others)
Be vulnerable...it is the best way to open your heart
The impact of your communication matters just as much as your intent
When there is conflict, go directly to the one with whom you have the conflict
Learn to have a "viewing point" rather than a "point of view"
Care for each other every day, not just on the days when there is a crisis
As we get closer to starting our new Meetup Groups, we'll have more and more opportunities to learn to live a "We Culture" together. Get yourself signed up for a group and get ready to make new friends, have fun and grow in your faith!
