Almost three years ago we opened wide the door of this online beach house called (in)courage.
We invited you to come in, put your sandy feet on the coffee table, talk late into the night with your friends and listen for God’s voice in return.
And it was beautiful.
Yet as time went on, we realized it simply wasn’t enough.
We wanted a way to also be in your lives, your real life.
Not that online isn’t real but it is different. And we wanted a way to also hug your neck, hear your laugh, wipe that tear away and pass the chocolate. We wanted to be able to say, “Cute shirt!” and hear your accent or watch that crease in your brow take shape when you talk about the hard day you had this week.
We wanted to connect in the face-to-face, the day-to-day.
And we wanted a way to connect you to each other more too.
Jesus is “the Word made flesh” and there’s something powerful about stepping out of the spiritual and into the tangible too. It’s what He did. And it’s what we wanted to do too.
It’s time for you to join us today for the opening sessions – A Community Keynote, Sara’s Story and our silly behind-the-scenes blooper reel. Then it’s time tomorrow to slip on your favorite shoes, slide out the door and find your way to a local meet-up. It’s time for coffee shops, church fellowships, living rooms and more.
It’s time for us to see each other not just with with our hearts but with our eyes too.
It’s time to hug and laugh and connect and be together.
We invited you in on the first day to this place online.
And we’re inviting you again because it’s not the same without you.
You are (in)courage…always have been, always will be.
And we love you.
Now go love on each other too.
