I’ve posted the next installation of the series on Five Practices of a Fruitful Congregation — Radical Hospitality. (I have to remember it’s “fruitful” — I think I’ve been saying “fruit-filled” and “fruit bowl”.) I’ve left the Comments on, so join in the conversation. What was your first experience at ELAM/Ascension? What do you think of being “radical”?
Our Facebook page includes comments, suggestions, discussions, videos, and photos of life at Ascension.
