“Present is living with your feet firmly grounded in reality, pale and uncertain as it may seem. Present is choosing to believe that your own life is worth investing deeply in, instead of waiting for some rare miracle or fairytale. Present means we understand that the here and now is sacred, sacramental, threaded through with divinity even in its plainness. Especially in its plainness.”

This 8-week elective is for adults in any stage of life wanting to reclaim their lives from a culture that stretches burdens and expects perfection. God calls us to be present, not perfect!
