About That Name..
You might be wondering, what the heck does six:eight mean? The name six:eight is an homage to the Bible verse, Micah 6:8, which says “You have heard, O mortal one, and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?”
In other words, here are the three basics of a life with God:
- Work for justice in the world
- Love extravagantly
- Walk humbly with God
So, those are the three strands of DNA for this gathered community of Jesus-followers: 1. commitment to making the world a fairer, safer, kinder, cleaner, better place for everyone, especially those who don’t have a lot of say in society. 2. a community that is so healthy and generous that we learn together how to be more loving people. 3. a way of being together that always includes God’s presence and leading.
That’s what’s in this name!
