What makes someone a friend? They are the people who really listen to us without judgement or defensive dismissiveness. Dr. Luton will speak about how congregations are, at their core and at their best, such places… sanctuaries in which people are allowed, yea invited, to connect with their soul and share their most core hopes, dreams, fears, and commitments. A miracle happens when we feel genuinely listened to, heard, seen, and affirmed as someone with inherent worth and dignity.
