My name is Callid (rhymes with salad) and I'm up in Rochester, NY.
At the moment I'm very interested in missional community. I have been slowly coming to believe that it is not only important, but perhaps a quintessential facet of the Church. With strongout communities to be honest with us, hold us to accountability, and be present to our joys and sorrows, it becomes harder and harder (for me) to be a faithful individual.
With my wife I convene the Rochester Emergent Cohort and we are both wondering what the future holds for us, hoping that some part of it will be authentic witness and joy in community. I am a Member of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), and I also believe that the Church is wider than any denomination.
I'm eager to hear from others about their situations.
