-Rev Melissa Fain-
Fig Tree Christian has existed for over four years with a simple mission:
Since almost the beginning this space has not been an echo chamber where only my theological point is shared to the masses. Very quickly guest mediations were added to include other viewpoints. In some cases, view point that vary drastically different from my own. That was done on purpose.
Since Fig Tree Live has begun, there's this call on my heart to change things just a bit. Yes, we will still have guest meditations, but we are also going to have added voices, that can share whenever they feel called. This will also become more than a Thursday meditation. Meditations can and will be posted at anytime during the week. One week there might only be one. Another week there could be seven. During this Advent season I've been asking for writers to join. After the new year, those writers will be included with their bios in a new "writer" tab at the top of the screen. This will be a pivot more than a change, and a needed change at that.
I hope once these writers start contributing you will make them fell welcome at Fig Tree Christian. Some of them you already know and love. Some might be new. Be prepared, because great things are coming right around the corner!
