Connections.  They are essential to every aspect of our lives - personal, spiritual and professional.  While they tie us to our past and ground us in tradition and identity, connections are key to moving forward.  As Christians, we value connections to our past, to the larger community and to each other.  These connections tie us together in community and move us forward in faith for service in and to the world.
