Faking it?

1236724_544064645642260_1040167684_nIt is less than one week to go until our next Grace Collective gathering at Crave Cafe in Kingsland!

This time our topic is “Fake?” and we are gearing up for some great discussions around the whole idea of authenticity:

Everyone’s life looks better on social media. We get to instagram our fabulous meals and facebook our travel photos, and keep silent about the messy parts of our lives. That’s the reality of the internet. But are we being real with each other when we are face to face? Or are we cultivating an image of ourselves that is less than authentic? What would it look like to be a community where we are honest and open with each other about the good and the not so good, our triumphs and our struggles… even our sin? Do we want to be like this? Is it just easier (or safer?) to be ‘fake’?

Here are some short videos to get you thinking about the topic, and help fuel our discussions on the night. There’s been a lot of talked about ‘blurred lines’ lately, and this Dove campaign highlights makes me wonder how much the lines have become blurred between what is real and what is fake.

One of the things we all crave is friendships that are deep, real and authentic. Check out what Spanky has to say on the challenges and possible solutions to going deeper with our friendships.

We’ll be sharing more over on Facebook in the lead up to the event so make sure you click attend and we look forward to hearing what you think!
