Genesis 12:1-19 NRSV
"...But now, so much in the church is about preservation and survival. So much in the church is about safety and comfort. The world can seem hostile at worst to our faith, and indifferent at best....So much in our lives is about comfort, preferring our adventures to be on a screen rather than in flesh and blood interactions with a world that can be unsafe.
"But safety, security, and comfort isn’t where growth happens.
"Risk follows a vision of what life can be, a vision of what God wants the world to look like, and how we can help God build that world..."
