What is the Fellowship?

  • Our intention is to create and sustain an ongoing and open conversation among Christians in Northeast Ohio and beyond. The Fellowship is comprised of people who gather together for lectures, workshops, and other events hosted by CTM and then extend those conversations, inviting others to join-in, through this blog. The fellowship is open to anyone who wants to join these conversations. In order to join the fellowship, all you need to do is sign-up as a contributor, commit to posting at least six times a year, and begin posting. It is as simple as that, and we will look forward to hearing from you.
