IGNITE 2022: Reconnect



The past two years have been challenging and disorienting for people across the globe. What does it look like for us to reconnect with God, our community, ourselves and with creation? Jesus prayed that his disciples may be one, just as he was one with the Father. It was his hope that his disciples would be unified, and that the world would know him (John 17:20-23). As we #reconnect with God and with each other, may we be inspired and encouraged to live in unity and love.
