Have you ever wished you could find a place to gather with other people and just connect? Kristin Schell knew these feelings all too well when she ran across Romans 12:13, “Take every opportunity to open your life and home to others”. This verse encouraged her to seek ways to live out “Welcome” in practical ways. Over time, she realized that in order to do this she needed to focus more on “being present” rather than “doing”. She knew it was the right thing but was not sure how to accomplish it……until a picnic table landed in her front yard. In a moment of inspiration, she knew this table would be a vehicle for her to create community. She painted it turquoise and began inviting friends and neighbors to join her. This simple act helped change life in her community. In the book, Kristin shares her journey of community and faith along with practical ways we can invite and create spaces of belonging in our own lives. Join us as we look at Kristin’s story alongside scripture and discover how we can create spaces of connection in our own lives.
