This week, we begin a new series looking at how we might put into practice God's invitation to be a hesed-shaped community. Hesed is the Hebrew word which can be translated as the tangible intersection of love, commitment, and generosity. This week, we Jason Feffer shared how a hesed-shaped community is a way for the Church to be an alternative society in a culture of individualism and tribalism, and we considered the cost of cultuvating such a community in our practice.
