One of the most significant shifts during the reformation beginning in the sixteenth century centered upon how individuals related to God.

How is church helping you to root your life in Grace, grow in faith, and reach in love? Is church an obstacle to your relationship with God in any way? How is church encouraging your relationship with God and neighbor?
