In our last regular episode before summer break, we gather to talk about community: not the hashtag or the social media version, but the essence of community as a sense of place and belonging. Host Kayla Craig is joined by Lindsy Wallace, Shannon Evans, and special guest, Rebekah Troche, who lives at Jesus People USA, a church and intentional community in Chicago.
In this episode, we:
Learn about JPUSA’s mission and ministry and why Rebekah was drawn to it; Share our vision for this fall’s Upside Down Gathering; Talk about how vulnerability and trust play a role in community; Bring forward tangible ways we can begin to cultivate community; and we Tackle listener questions about how to deal with conflict and how an introvert can find respite amid a community-building lifestyle.
Join us as we recognize how intentional community with others is pivotal to the upside-down life.
