quarry, we as individual have come from, and fit into, something larger. And where we come from and what we’re part of shapes who we are.
Every rock cut from the same quarry has a certain look, a certain feel, that they share with all the others. As a result of their coming from the same mountain, they will share certain qualities in common with other rocks cut from the same quarry. Though every stone is unique, they all share the same grain and texture, the same mineral mix, the same veins of color.
In this series we will step back from us as individual “rocks” and consider the quarry from which we were cut, looking closely at those qualities that we will have in common simple by virtue of being part of the body of Christ worldwide . . . and part of Covenant.
We at Covenant are shaped by common beliefs, a common calling, common values, and a common posture. These will be our focus in this series.
The past year and a half have been tumultuous and disorienting for churches, Covenant included. Some have left us during this time, and others have come to us. This is a chance for those who have remained to remember, and those who are new to discover, what are the grains and textures and colors in the rock that make Covenant – and each of us as “chips off the old block” – unique.
