Like it or not, the Church has made us who we are. In honor of Pentecost Sunday, the “birthday” of the Church, Nikki and Erin talk about their experiences of church from childhood until now.  They sometimes cringe but often celebrate the fact that church is part of their identity, and they wonder about a quote from Saint Cyprian of Carthage. There are plenty of scholarly books that describe, explain, and confront realities about the Church today, but that’s not what this conversation is. Nikki and Erin share their experiences of finding and hoping for beloved community in the context of Church and why those experiences fill their cups. #rethinkchurch #glasshalffull #belovedcommunity #church
