Joy comes from not always having everything go perfectly in your life but rather it comes from faith lived out in God. Somehow faith takes moments of both happiness and sorrow, collects them, and arranges them into a way in which we can see God’s hands in the midst of it all.
It is then when we are able to experience joy. For us, joy means living in community, God’s community as well as sharing in the good news of Jesus, living out of our faith, and supporting one another in the happiness and sorrows we experience in life.
We are called as disciples of Jesus to invite others into the “joy” of Christian community.
