Ask Anything: Existence

Why do we exist?

What is the purpose of you? Of me? Of us? Why are we here? What should we do? Where are we going? What does all of this mean?

These are some of the oldest questions in the world. Mankind has been asking them ever since we began to think.

 
 Ryan Phipps is the Senior Minister at Church In Bethesda.  Raised in the church, becoming a pastor was the one thing Ryan vowed he would never do. After spending many years away from faith, he found that for all of its flaws, the church can still occupy a unique place of good in the world if it is willing to evolve with reason and empathy.  Ryan has a special place in his heart for those who have been damaged or disillusioned by the church, and longs to lead those within it toward a more just and generous expression of itself.  Ryan is an  INTJ  on the MBTI and a  5w4  on the Enneagram
