Connections and Boundaries, Rev. Kent Matthies

Many people talk about the importance of being in spiritual community.  Many of our congregational efforts are designed to help us know others, be known and grow in intimacy.  So often we benefit when we open up to each other with vulnerability and trust.  However, it is also important to keep boundaries and time for ourselves.  Good fences make good neighbors.  Most of us benefit from shutting off our cell phones, smart phones, and email when we need to unplug.
