Traditions matter. Traditions remind us that we are part of a history that defines our past, shapes who we are today, and who we are likely to become. At CBC we hold traditions very near and dear to our hearts. In the last few years we have welcomed new people, and seen some of our beloved CBC family members go off and do good elsewhere. Throughout all the changes we have seen, one thing has remained constant -- our traditions. The quote from Susan Lieberman says, "Traditions counter alienation and confusion. They help us define who we are; they provide something steady, reliable and safe in a confusing world." It is the traditions here at CBC that provide that something steady, safe, and reliable.

One of the most beloved traditions is our Women’s brunch that we hold every year in December. This event gives us a chance to encourage, love on, and motivate the women here at CBC. This past Saturday we had the pleasure of Anita Renfroe, a well known Christian comedian, come and speak at our brunch. It was so great to see multiple generations working together to decorate the tables and prepare for the brunch. I am so glad to get to be a part of this tradition here at CBC.
