While the Terra Bite website makes it abundantly clear that they have “no political or religious message,” I see an important analogy for our church community as we’re in the midst of relaunching — that is, we want to be the kind of church in which our people commit their time, resources and love because they want to and they believe in it, not because of some religious or cultural obligation. We probably won’t be the model of efficiency, but it would be amazing to see people believing and investing in what God is doing here in our particular community.
