We believe the church is beautiful.
However, for some, the church experience has been uncomfortable or even painful.
No matter what church has been for you, thank you for taking a risk, being a little vulnerable, and we hope you visit Branches. We hope you feel at home, are comfortable, and find the experience beautiful.
And no matter where you go and whether or not you return, try to remember that the Divine is everywhere. Everything is sacred when you’re aware.
With so much beauty, so much God, and so many good stories, there's no room to be cynical or angry or afraid.
