Too often, religion focuses on the “no.” Restrictions, rules, exclusion. Those who are in and those who are out. Righteousness and holiness and sin. Judgment.
But focusing on those concepts misses the point. Love God, and love your neighbors as yourself. Where’s the exclusion in that?
Sojo is genuinely the most honest, supportive, welcoming, and respectful church community I’ve ever been part of. It’s not just a handful of people, or the welcome committee, but everyone in the room. It’s a place that embraces the “yes.”
