Throughout the year, we’ll be exploring themes related to connection, community, and belonging. In post-Covid America, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy has warned about the “loneliness epidemic” sweeping society. People are feeling isolated and alone. People are searching for ways to relate and connect. People, of all ages, are searching for community, a place where they feel welcome, accepted, safe, and invited to flourish. The Christian tradition has something special to offer this moment. What is distinctive about a Christian vision of belonging? In a recent interview in The Presbyterian Outlook, theologian Willie James Jennings reminds us that at its heart, “Christian community is [about] creating belonging where there had been boundary, border, separation, and segregation. A Christian sense of belonging always cuts across every other kind of alignment and allegiance.”
