This summer, we are writing these blog posts in the hopes that we can reflect on faith as a community. Each individual and generation must decide what faith means for them. The experiences of the past help cast a vision for the future and that in turn affects the present. We explored the question, What does it mean for each generation to say “Bless the Lord”? Through this blog post series, we hope to aid in answering some of those questions.
