This will be our seventh year doing the Taboo series at Common Ground. Open conversation and listening is vital to a thriving community, even if we do not fully agree with others cultural viewpoints, Jesus unites us around his table. We made a commitment years ago to talk about the things that many faith communities may shy away from for have closed their minds to for one reason or another. The Taboo Series has brought so much hope and ministry to our community. Often times our gathered space turns into a place of healing and hope as people share their stories and we are able to see God in an ever expanding way. This year is no different. Our world needs Christians full of love. Our city needs Christians full of love. Perfect love drives out fear. Perfect love drives out gossip. Perfect love drives out death of all kinds. Mark your calendars and bring a friend who may have questions or is struggling through issues regarding:
2/2 – Adultery
2/9 – Politics and Humility
2/16 – Easting Disorders
2/23 – Toxic Masculinity
*Note – These topics are not selected to shame or in any way to religiously crush those who have struggled with any of the following topics and any given point. Shame and guilt does not follow the liberation of Christ. Freedom and life come, but only after the time of truly dealing with our junk. We all think differently and have had different experiences in this world. Some good. Some horrible. We believe Christ has something to say to all of us on each and everyone of these issues. These topics are chosen to bring hope and healing as we walk with one another toward Christ in the city of Fredericksburg.
